When Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert of Green Gables, Prince Edward Island, send for a boy orphan to help them out at the farm, they are in no way prepared for the error that will change their lives. The mistake takes the shape of Anne Shirley, a redheaded 11-year-old girl who can talk anyone under the table. Fortunately, her sunny nature and quirky imagination quickly win over her reluctant foster parents. Anne's feisty spirit soon draws many friends--and much trouble--her way. Not a day goes by without some melodramatic new episode in the tragicomedy of her life. Early on, Anne declares her eternal antipathy for Gilbert Blythe, a classmate who commits the ultimate sin of mocking her hair color. Later, she accidentally dyes that same cursed hair green. Another time, in her haste to impress a new neighbor, she bakes a cake with liniment instead of vanilla. Lucy Maud Montgomery's series of books about Anne have remained classics since the early 20th century. Her portrayal of this feminine yet independent spirit has given generations of girls a strong female role model, while offering a taste of another, milder time in history. This lovely boxed gift collection comprises Anne of Green Gables, Anne of the Island, Anne of Avonlea, Anne of Windy Poplars, Anne's House of Dreams, Anne of Ingleside, Rainbow Valley, and Rilla of Ingleside. (Ages 9 to 12) --Emilie Coulter

I was very surprised to find that I kept tripping on certain sentences; the writing didn't seem as smooth as I remembered. When I got to chapter 6, I decided to compare a sentence in the digital print to my old, yellowing physical copy of Anne of Green Gables book. I realized why I had some difficulty reading my new digital copy: THERE ARE TYPOS IN THIS PRODUCT.
It contains the WORST kinds of typos. There are typos in which it results in sentences that don't make sense. There are typos with the wrong pronouns in them that make it confusing for the reader to understand which character the publisher meant to write about. I am able to follow the story because I've read Anne of Green Gables more than once with my hard copy but for new readers, these typos will make this beautiful story difficult to read and at times, understand.
I hope the digital copy can be fixed so that owners can enjoy L.M. Montgomery's work as it was meant to be enjoyed. I have given this two stars instead of one because of the fabulous price for kindle readers.
Buy the book, but get another edition!
First issue: Really random pics grabbed from some art history textbook do not qualify as illustrations. They are more distracting than I would have imagined. Why didn't they leave the totally unrelated images out?
Second issue: This is some new definition of complete that I am unacquainted with. This is Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea only. None of the later books are included.
False advertising. A text I am being pulled out of by unnecessary distractions. There have to be better options. I am going in search of one.
However, there are more treats in store for the L.M. Montgomery fan. True, I wasn't quite so fond of "Kilmeny of the Orchard," which was good, but seemed dated and rather stilted, But then I read "The Story Girl" and its companion "The Golden Road," and I think these are just as good as, and better structured than the Anne Shirley stories. "Nostalgic" is the word that comes to mind for these books. And, like the Anne series, they make me want to visit Prince Edward Island.
Don't skip the Emily trilogy -- "Emily of New Moon," "Emily Climbs," and "Emily's Quest" -- which in my opinion are the best of the bunch. Unlike the Anne series, where the sequels were written at the urging of the author's publisher, this series was obviously planned as a trilogy from the beginning. Clearly autobiographical in nature, Emily isn't quite the dear thing that Anne is, but she is a more well-developed, well-defined character.
This Kindle edition was not error-free, but compared to many books I've read, it has far fewer scanning errors than most. I also enjoyed the illustrations, which are mostly covers from various early editions. I wasn't entirely thrilled with the set-up -- when you use the "go to" feature, there are 894 bookmarks listed, all of them identified only by number. They are really chapter bookmarks, but that isn't very helpful when they're just numbered. Still, that's only a minor annoyance; you can scroll up to "Front Matter," which takes you to an interactive table of contents for the entire collection.
I was surprised to learn, by the way, that this massive tome is not the complete works of Lucy Maud Montgomery; there are at least a few other books that are absent. However, that shouldn't stop you from buying this Kindle edition. The price is excellent, and the value is great.
Now to plan my trip to P.E.I.!
