I really hated not finishing this because for the most part I really liked it. I just hated that it took sooo long to get even halfway through. The storyline is really cute although I hated the way Anne was treated by Marilla up to page 148 (I haven't read past that). Right now I have a million other books to read and this one just dragged for me. It's probably my mindset since I have a lot going on at the moment, but I would like to see the movie (or a movie version) and perhaps try reading this again in the future. If you have the time an the patience, it's a great book.
