About the Author
Lucy Maud (L.M.) Montgomery (1874-1942) began her career writing for a newspaper in Halifax, Nova Scotia, before returning to her native Prince Edward Island. Her short stories soon began appearing in the Family Herald and children’s magazines. Anne of Green Gables (1908) was actually written first as a serial for a Sunday school paper, but it quickly became her immensely successful first novel, bringing her international recognition. That title was followed by eight more books about Anne and Avonlea and a number of other entertaining novels, including her Emily series, which began in 1923 with Emily of New Moon. But it is Anne Shirley, praised by Mark Twain as “the dearest and most lovable child in fiction since the immortal Alice,” who remains a popular favorite throughout the world.

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.
The book was written in Englilsh, so Pedulla has translated nothing. What he has done has taken material free in the public domain and offered it on Amazon.
Amazon should NOT support theft.
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.
