Perfectly Performed

(5 stars)

Karen Savage is a professional narrator; she's on Audible. She is also an avid knitter. Karen does a spectacular job in all her narrations and has done all the "Anne" books that are in the Public Domain in the USA for Librivox. Another book that she performs very well is The Secret Garden in which she does all varied British accents perfectly. Karen is fluent in Spanish and French as well. I have often gone to sleep listening to her sweet girlish voice. Yes, she does speak quite quickly, but the Librivox app does let you change the speed to your liking so it is not a problem.

Most extraordinary book yet

(5 stars)

I never thought I would enjoy an audiobook as much as I loved this. This book was the first ever audiobook I ever listened and I was not disappointed. The way Karen Savage reads it and the way Lucy Maud Montgomery wrote it is too perfect for my ears. I love Anne and everything she stands for. I'm so glad I decided I'd listen to her story.

Loved it!

(5 stars)

A wonderful uplifting book which I read as a child and have just revisited. I hope to entice my granddaughters into reading or listening to it and hope they will be equally enthralled. Karen Savage is an excellent reader and I look forward to listening to more books read by her.

A favorite forever

(5 stars)

This version of Anne of Green Gables read by Karen Savage is my favorite. Karen reads with a pleasant tambour. I didn’t become acquainted with the ‘Anne’ series until adulthood, but this story takes me back to childhood days of freedom and fancy that recalls dreamy exploration of woods and flowing brooks. Anne is an orphan in turn of the century Eastern Canada, in Prince Edward Island. She is taken in, sort of mistakenly, by older couple, siblings, Matthew & Marilla Cuthbert. Anne is full of imaginations and dreamy absentmindedness which brings unbounded consternation to stalwart Marilla. Adventures & scrapes bring emotional highs and lows for Anne and all of us as we enjoy being drawn into her world.

Lucy Maude Montgomery's literary jewel comes to life..

(5 stars)

This is a heartwarming, timeless classic that reminds us of what it's like to be a child again. Karen Savage does a beautiful job with her narration. She really brings "Anne" to life without being overly dramatic. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this! Thank you!

Gifted reader

(5 stars)

Karen Savage's narration was such a joy! My mother and I are familiar with Anne (via the novels and the adaptation starring Megan Follows) and spent many merry dinners and chores revisiting Anne's scrapes and misadventures. Thank you, Librivox, for this lovely gem.

(5 stars)

I've watched the series from Netflix and was sad to find out there will be no more. So happy that I found this gem here, Karen's reading took me back to Green Gables! cannot wait to listen for more. 😊
