I love the romance that builds between Anne and Gilbert.
Hannibal Morales
I received the entire series as a gift from my roommate for Christmas because they are her favorite childhood books and she couldn't fathom that I had never read them.
L. Fannon
If you've never read these books, I fervently recommend the series.

I love Anne of Green Gables but found myself being pulled out of this book by all the editing mistakes (misspelled words, etc.). I definitely recommend the story, but not this edition of it.

Format: Hardcover
In 1985 when I stumbled upon Kevin Sullivan's wonderful production of "Anne of Green Gables" with Megan Follows as Anne, Colleen Dewhurst as Marilla, and Richard Farnsworth as Mathew, it was my introduction to the Lucy Maud Montgomery's red-headed orphan. Like millions of others, I fell in love with the production and then proceeded to read this novel, the other seven books in the Anne Series, and then "The Chronicles of Avonlea," "The Story Girl," the "Jane of Lantern Hill" books, and every other thing written by Montgomery that I could get my hands on (and this was before all of those paperback collections of Montgomery's short stories were published).

In 1904 Montgomery had written down an idea for a story in her notebook: "Elderly couple apply to orphan asylum for a boy. By mistake a girl is sent them." In what must be heartening for many would be authors, Montgomery's manuscript for "Anne of Green Gables" was rejected repeated by publishers before it was finally accepted. The book was a bestseller from the moment it was published in June 1908 (I have a 19th impression printed in September 1910), although a critic in "The New York Times" complained that, "there is no real difference between the girl at the end of the story and the one at the beginning of it." Readers of the book would quite happy with that fact, because the reason we love this story is not that the talkative, red-haired orphan girl with her big green-grey eyes changes during the story, but that Marilla and Mathew Cuthbert, the elderly sister and brother who wanted to adopt a boy and got a girl instead, have changed profoundly.

Mark Twain described Anne Shirley as "The dearest and most moving and delightful child since the immortal Alice," and nobody has been able to top that statement.

When I was 10 years, I injured my ribs in a playground accident. The doctor told my mom to keep me in bed for a week. As a rambunctious child, this was excruciating torture; however, my mom contrived to ease my "suffering" by providing me with the first three books in the "Anne of Green Gables."

I was fascinated by this little girl, only a year older than I, and her adventures and lessons learned. I eagerly raced through the first three books and then begged my mom for the remaining ones in the series. At the time, I had no idea the little girl I was reading about had been in print for 80 years. She captivated my heart and imagination.

It speaks volumes for this book and author to say that I am still as captivated as I was 20 years ago. Anne's story - her struggles, loves and dreams - resonate as strongly now as they did when I was a child. The sweet humor and gentle lessons have stood the test of time.

If you've never read these books, I fervently recommend the series.

Format: Hardcover
This endearing juvenile Canadian classic introduces a spunky red-headed twelve-year-old orphan named Anne Shirley--whom Mark Twain praised as his favorite female juvenile character. Greatly relieved to depart the sad conditions of her lonely life in the orphanage Naďve Anne (with an E!) arrives on Prince Edward Island to be adopted by an elderly couple, Marilla and Matthew Cuthburt (brother and spinster sister) living modestly in a house called Green Gables. Unfortunately the couple had requested a Boy (to help with farm work) so there was general disappointment and confusion all around when the pigtailed waif showed up at the train station with here threadbare satchel.

This chatterbox with a vivid imagination fully expected to be given a home and long-denied love, but sour Marilla had to be persuaded by kindly Matthew to take her on trial. And what a trial Anne proved to be to these folks with no experience in child rearing! Learning to say prayers, to curb her wayward tongue when interacting with staid Rachel Lynde, meeting insult with insult to snobby girls in her school, growing violent re sneers about her hair from boys--especially smug Gilbert Bythe!

But even tough Marilla, who could be "mean as second skimmings," was eventually won over by Anne's irrepressible charm; the feisty spinster declared that despite the tantrums and trouble Anne got into (like walking the ridgepole after being dared to) she wouldn't trade Anne for a dozen boys! Readers over many decades agree: The ANNE stories easily charmed English-speaking folks on both sides of the Canadian border.

When I was a girl, I had this one aunt wrandho gave us books as gifts. Of course her gifts were the last things that we opened on Christmas and birthdays. I never read Anne of Green Gables, but did see the movie. I gave my granddaughter

Purchased this book for my granddaughter and she loves it!!!!! She is 9 years old and it has made a big hit on her. Her teacher was thrilled that she would even considered reading a book like Anne of Green Gables. She really loves the book and can't wait for the next one.
