POWERFUL

(5 stars)

Great story of life, love and hard times. We in the 21st century don't know what life was like for people in the early 20th century. What people felt and how they handled war and not having instant report of what was going on in the world. But the people of that day and age had more than we do today. They had faith, hope, and prayer for a better tomorrow. We of this day and age need to get back down on our knees and pray till we see the mighty hand of God moving in our country once again.

The Beauty amongst the Horror of War

(5 stars)

This is a remarkeble and heartbreaking tale set admidst the beauty of Prince Edward Island during the First World War. The wonderful blending of Poetry and story telling is very seldom surpass. Ms. Karen Savage's reading and spicing with music and her very capable reinacting made a delicious banquet for the listener. Keep a box of Kleenex near and Bon Appetit! --Peace to you from one of the Tribe of Joseph--

Bravo! What a wonderful reading of this book. I wish the whole series could have been read by this narrator, she was better than a lot of Audible narrators. I will have very fond memories of painting my porch and listening to this wonderfully told story.

Really great job

(5 stars)

Awesome reading, I love the way she reads Rilla, Susan, and my favorite, Norman Douglas. It's a hilarious book, Susan and the cat, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, provide so much entertainment. It's sometimes sad, too. This was the first complete LibriVox book I listened to and it remains a favorite. Karen Savage is a very talented reader and makes the book very enjoyable.

Great reading of a great book

(5 stars)

I love this series and I love this last book in it. It's always so sad when series' have to end though! Karen Savage does such a great job of reading this. I love the oomph she puts into it when characters yell or get excited, and the different "voices" she uses for different characters. If you're looking for a good audio version of this classic, you've found one here. This book makes me laugh and cry so many times. War is such an ugly and sorrowful thing, but oh the beauty of those willing to die for the freedoms they and their country possess!

Best Voice

(5 stars)

Karen Savage is my favourite librivox reader. I love listen to audiobooks read by her. She does lots of different voices for the different characters and she has a way of bringing to life what she reads. I would highly this audiobook.

Excellent Conclusion

(4 stars)

This is a nice conclusion to the Anne of Green Gables novels, though in many ways it feels like the sties has shifted away from Anne. For avid fans, it is worth going through to the end of this series. Ms. Savage does a fantastic job narrating this entire series and is by far one of the greatest audiobook narrators, not only on Librivox, but of all time. May she continue narrating for many years to come!

good story. this reader is excellent

(4 stars)

Karen Savage is a fine reader period this story was different income from all of the other and Shirley slash Blythe books. it is set during World War One and you get quite a bit of the history of this war. all in all great ending to the side of the Ingleside kids.
