A classic

This is a book I read as a child and have read again as an adult. It's a great story, still funny and sweet after all these years. The characters are realistic and likable.

Best Book EVER!!!!!

This is such a good book. I recommend it to any one who likes great books.


In my opinion, this book is boring. It doesn't have a plot. It just a bunch of stories about Anne. I didn't like, but I'm not a fan of classic either.


L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables is a timeless classic. A great read to be passed down from generation to generation, and shared between children, adults, bosom friends and kindred spirits.

Timeless classic

Anne Shirley is one of the best characters in kid fiction. Not many fictional book characters are the cause of tourists flocking to the character's home island, but Anne is.

Perfect Read

I love this book because Anne has the imagination people only wish they did. Great book about being an individual and learning to love one's self.


Over 100 years old, but still a great story. Anne feels so real. You will want to read all about her.


PERFECT BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I thought that this story was pretty interesting, and the characters remind me of some people I know.

Turned out okay

I had to read this book, and I thought that it would be boring, but it turned out to be okay.


i am almost done and so far so GOOD!

Anne of Green Gables

This book is about an orphan ("Anne with an e", as she herself says!) who is adopted by Matthew Cuthbert and his sister, Marilla Cuthbert.
The Cuthberts wanted to adopt a boy, not a girl, but they asked a friend who was going by the orphanage to pick out a good child for them, there was a misunderstanding, so Anne arrives on the train all excited that she was going to have a home. Then she realizes the Cuthberts don't want her, and she is heartbroken. At first the Cuthberts want to return her to the orphanage, but then they decide to keep her after all.
The book tells how the Cuthberts grow to love Anne, and she them.
In reading the book, you learn of Anne's accidents and triumphs, some of them quite funny.
What I really like about this book is the way it all seems so real-life. When you read it you will find yourself cheering Anne on. Trust me, once you start this book you won't want to put it down again until you finish it.
I strongly recommend this book, but it does have some sad parts--Matthew Cuthbert dies near the end of the book. Once you read this, you will want to read the rest of the series, and the rest of L. M. Montgomery's books, too. I would especially recommend reading the three Emily of New Moon books.

The best book ever

Talkative, but sweet.

Anne likes to talk and imagine things a lot, but she is a kind and caring person. I think that it is a good read for those who like classics and L.M. Montgomery.


im 12 and at a 9th grade reading level and the words in this book still confuzzle me. Ive been trying to read it since I was 7. But its still not working. I can still only understand a quarter of the words on the page. It's a good book, at least the parts I can understand.

Such a great book!

When I first found this book, i thought i wouldnt like it but I loved it!


This book is fantastic

5.0 Stars

This about sums it up for me:
"Gracious heavenly Father, I thank Thee for the White
Way of Delight and the Lake of Shining Waters and Bonny
and the Snow Queen. I'm really extremely grateful for
them. And that's all the blessings I can think of just
now to thank Thee for. As for the things I want,
they're so numerous that it would take a great deal of
time to name them all so I will only mention the two
most important. Please let me stay at Green Gables;
and please let me be good-looking when I grow up.
I remain,
Yours respectfully,
Anne Shirley."

i fell in love with anne shirley at that exact moment. The book took MUCH longer to read than I ever thought it would. it dragged quite a bit, but I'm sure it's mostly just characteristic of Canadian Literature at the time. It is very dense and I would've never gotten through this as a kid, and I was an *avid* reader. The juice is worth the squeeze, or whatever they say.

kindrid spirit

Anne is a redhead who gets adopted. She later finds out(after she's gotten all excited), that she isn't wanted. Read and watch her live her life of courage and love. Don't miss the rest of the series.
