Lucy Maud Montgomery's classic children's novel, Anne of Green Gables tells the story of a red headed orphan girl with a personality you can't help but love. Despite her "tragical" past, Anne's optimism and imagination have helped her to always see the best in things. Anne's life changes considerably when she is accidentally adopted by the Cuthberts, a brother and sister who thought they were getting a boy to help out on the farm. The Cuthberts decide Anne will have to be sent back to the orphange but before they know it, she has begun to work her way into their hearts. (Summary by Annie Coleman)

it was a magnificent experience.


(5 stars)

I couldn't be thankful to Ann spelled with an "e" to teach me the value of imagination and optimism in one's disposition.... oh! I am so glad that I took up the book in the first place. and yes of course Rachael Ellen has did just about the justice with the piece of art. she made all of the experience ever more vivid and amazing than it already was. thank you so much for thus wonderful project. I couldn't be more grateful.... thank you so much!!

Well read

One of my favorite stories of all time. The reader was magnificent. You could hear all the characters and her love for the story as she read.

An entancing book, beautifully read As a 63 year old man I do not think that I would have been amongst the book's intended audience. I downloaded the MP3s to give to my great niece, who is 8, but found myself listening to the whole book! I now have all of the Anne of Green Gables books, and hope tht Bethany likes them.

great Book!

A tale about an orphan girl who gets adopted by a elderly couple. Her feisty personality gets her into lots of scrapes.

God Bless You Maud

I still can find no proper words to express my gratitude to the reader and the writing of this wonderful story. When someone calls me sentimental I think of the honors I received as a combat vet and they sink to nothingness. The spirit of Anne will live forever in my tough looking front and I will always love little children as I still love my little girls. This was a spirit speaking to me from a place I have never been. I have been unable or unwilling to leave my country since I left the US Army. But someday I may be able to visit the beautiful country described in these almost heavenly stories by one they called "Maud." How much she must delight in her warm and wonderful heart when she hears one of them read and listened to by someone so different and yet with almost still the imagination of Anne. This was a wonderful book and I am so grateful to the reader for her excellent reading of it.

Sold my husband on audiobooks...


(5 stars)

I popped in an mp3 cd of rachelellen reading Anne of Green Gables to entertain my family as we had a long drive this Thanksgiving weekend. I have been trying to introduce my husband to the wonders of audiobooks (if for no other reason than to get to listen to them on family car trips) but he was never much interested. Rachelellen's reading is wonderful. Both my husband and six year old son were entranced and we my husband was fast forwarding through the intro's of the chapters to get to the reading at the end of the book because he wanted to finish it before our trip was over and time was running short. Excellent reading. You can tell that the reader loves this book.


(4 stars)

I hadn't read this book since I was a kid, decades ago, and I found it so completely delightful as an adult. Funny, charming, so sweet. Anne is such a character and Marila and Matthew's love for her, which I'm sure didn't affect me in the same way when I was younger, made me tear up more than once. I only wish the reader was a little slower - it's such a languid story and it seems instead like she's trying to just fly through. I got used to her (she was better than the other versions I tried), but definitely not my favorite LibriVox reader.

a great recording.


(5 stars)

I loved this book and this recording. It's wonderful. I hope this reader will upload more books, perhaps even more Anne books. If you are trying to decide between all the AoGG recordings, get past the introduction and into the book on this version and you will love this recording.
