I just love Karen Savage. She is an excellent reader. I have now listened to all the Anne of Green Gables stories and I have loved them all. Thank you Karen. You have me such pleasure. I now look for readings by Karen.

An alpha reading of beta narrative material.

Excellent reading by Ms Savage. Not the strongest book in the series, feeling rather predictable and formulaic, but relatively inoffensive, and even charming in places. I can't fault the reading though. Engaging and passionate without ever becoming cloying or descending into schmultz.

Excellent reading, good book

Lucy Maud Montgomery has written a series of really good books. Her characters are varied, interesting, and well-developed. She recognizes and affirms the innate differences between boys and girls, men and women. I appreciate her affirmation of the goodness of love between a man and woman and it’s expression in traditional marriage. Karen Savage’s reading of these books is superb. She does and differentiates the voices well. She is a joy to listen to.

Thank you Karen Savage

In the past months I listened to all the previous books in the series, read by Karen Savage. From the first book you can hear how her reading and the quality of her recording improved (at the very beginning she was reading a liiittle too fast, but it was still perfect to impersonate little Anne, and you could hear some noises or other light disturbances). Now I can easily say her reading has become perfect. And funny when it needs to be. Never monotonous. She changes her voice according to who's speaking, you can tell exactly who's talking just by her voice. She's that good! Seriously, I haven't enjoyed an audiobook series so much since listening to Harry Potter read by Stephen Fry (and you do have to spend a nice lot of money for that). So thank you, thank you, thank you dear Karen Savage, for all the hours of your time you donated to let us all enjoy this masterpiece in the best possibile way. I really hope you can read this, to know how much all your hard work was appreciated! Elisa

Reminiscent of Anne's childhood adventures

(5 stars)

This book seems most similar to Anne of Green Gables in its fun innocent adventures and more lively than the books that have focused on Anne as an adult. Very well read by Karen Savage.

Great book that's wonderfully read!

(5 stars)

this is a fun book to read and this reader does a fantastic job. The manse children pull your heart strings with their antics and innate ability to get into trouble.

Gets going in the middle!

(4 stars)

This book is beautifully read... it starts off very "prosey" and a bit goodytooshoes... but halfway through it becomes more interesting and heart-warming... I really enjoyed it, thank you.

Karen's reading is brilliant, as always. :) The story is lovely. The Blythes are often secondary characters but still play a large role, and there are lots of new characters to follow. Really heartwarming story about childhood and family - there are lots of funny moments and touching ones. A must-read for any Montgomery fan!
