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)

Reviews

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

(5 stars)

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.

(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.

(5 stars)

I enjoyed listening to this audio book. Rachel spoke as Anne perfectly. I grew up watching the Canadian TV series and always meant to read the books. I'm glad I was able to find it here with such a great reader.

Outstanding!

(5 stars)

I had read this book several times before but never enjoyed it more than in listening to this recording. The reading is excellent and really brings each character to life.

(4 stars)

I wish that there was a plug for librivox at the beginning of each chapter. I would prefer if it just went right into the next chapter.

great Book!

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