Amazon.com Review

When Marilla Cuthbert's brother, Matthew, returns home to Green Gables with a chatty redheaded orphan girl, Marilla exclaims, "But we asked for a boy. We have no use for a girl." It's not long, though, before the Cuthberts can't imagine how they could ever do without young Anne of Green Gables--but not for the original reasons they sought an orphan. Somewhere between the time Anne "confesses" to losing Marilla's amethyst pin (which she never took) in hopes of being allowed to go to a picnic, and when Anne accidentally dyes her hated carrot-red hair green, Marilla says to Matthew, "One thing's for certain, no house that Anne's in will ever be dull." And no book that she's in will be, either. This adapted version of the classic, Anne of Green Gables, introduces younger readers to the irrepressible heroine of L.M. Montgomery's many stories. Adapter M.C. Helldorfer includes only a few of Anne's mirthful and poignant adventures, yet manages to capture the freshness of one of children's literature's spunkiest, most beloved characters. There's just enough to make beginning readers want more--luckily, there's a lot more in the originals! Illustrator Ellen Beier creates vibrant pictures to portray the beauty of the land around Green Gables and the spirited nature of Anne herself. (Ages 5 to 8) --Emilie Coulter

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-7-With a full cast and some background music, this radio play version of Lucy Maud Montgomery's classic hits the high points of the original novel. It is quite abbreviated, so each episode in Anne's orphan-girl-made-good story is afforded just enough time to lay out the bones of the plot. However, Anne's spunky and endearing character shines through scene after scene, as does some of the nostalgic charm of Avonlea's Canadian setting and quaint old Green Gables. All the parts are read very well, with a touching intensity that makes up for some of the brevity of plot episodes. A narrator fills in quite smoothly between the scenes for each event. Two nice features for young listeners make this a useful introduction to audio fiction. There is a pleasant chime played at the end of each side, and at the beginning of each side a line or two from the preceding side is repeated, helping to move listeners smoothly through the break in the action. This entertaining version may help lead youngsters to the original novel. School and public libraries seeking to add abridged novels to their collections or to introduce or entice young readers to longer fiction will want to consider this version.

Two years ago I would have bet a bazillion dollars I would never read a "girls" book. But at 71 years of age I found myself in a house full of books only one of which I had not read. I am terrribly addicted to reading so, in desperation, I started "Anne of Green Gables". It is a marvelous book with a main character I wish I could meet every day in real life. Again to feed my addiction I bought the "Anne of Green Gables" series. Each book was a delight and I soon forgot that they were "girls" books. Maud created a character we all need in our life. She turns the mundane magical and believable. Reading them all in nearly a continous setting makes Anne "wearying" to quote Marilla since unbounded child-like wonder is hard to maintain. I wish I had read these books decades ago so Anne could have helped me through some less than happy times.

I think it goes without saying that I love the Anne books, so I will keep my review to one strictly of this Kindle edition.

While I am only about half through the first book (and will certainly update my review if it changes), I'm pretty thrilled with this collection. It's exactly as the description claims: it's easy to jump from one book to another using the Table of Contents. Once you reach the desired book, it is easy to jump from chapter to chapter. I'm giving this only four stars, because the editing isn't perfect; I've noticed a couple odd words and phrases. (Example: "Parthian shot" became "Parthian shaft.") Thus far, however, they are minor and have not significantly impacted my enjoyment. And for the price (I paid $0.99), it's certainly not a big deal.

Over all, I highly recommend this collection. As I stated, if my opinion changes as I read further, I will certainly update my review.

I love these books and already had most of them in audiobook form. I bought this in order to get the books I didn't have. However, if you just want the audiobooks, this purchase is not necessary. The audiobook links given on the kindle just direct you to a website (Annebooks.com) where these audiobooks are available FREE to anyone. They are not the best of recordings since you get volunteer readers and usually a different reader for each chapter. BUT, they are free and you can't beat that. So if you want this to read on your Kindle - it's an awesome deal. If you want it for the audiobooks, don't bother.

This is a great compilation of 11 Anne of Green Gables books! I chose this edition after sampling various other less quality versions on Amazon. The eBook is very well formatted and reads like a charm on my Kindle 2. As a long-time Anne of Green Gables reader, having this compilation is great for when I feel like revisiting Anne of Avonlea or Anne's House of Dreams. These are truly wonderful stories and you just get lost in the world of Green Gables thanks to Lucy Maud Montgomery's fantastic use of imagery.

Just get this edition and let Anne take you on a wonderful journey!

My mother suffers from Alzheimer's and is totally dependent on others for everything, including entertainment. At least once a week, I and go and read to her. I think it is a nice change of pace that she really seems to enjoy.

Mom was always a fan of Anne of Green Gables, so I downloaded this version to my Kindle Fire. We are having a wonderful time together, reliving Anne's dramatics.

This collection contains some of famed Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery's best work, including the first six novels about her incomparable character, the imaginative red-haired orphan Anne Shirley, who grew up on the Prince Edward Island farm of Green Gables.

"Anne of Green Gables" is the introduction to Montgomery's heroine, who comes to a bachelor farmer and his spinster sister by mistake, and ends up making a family out of them. The novels included in this collection cover her childhood, her time as a young school marm, her college romance, the early years of her marriage to a country doctor, and the raising of her many children. The concluding novel centers on the coming of age of Anne's youngest daughter during the difficult days of the First World War.

Also included are two collections of short stories about Anne Shirley's fictional hometown of Avonlea, where Anne is a supporting character in the adventures and misadventures of her neighbors.

Another novel in this collection, "Kilmeny of the Orchard", is a short romance, in which a young man and young woman are separated by an unusual handicap.

As a real bonus, this collection includes "The Story Girl" and "The Golden Road", two novels about the young Sara Stanley and her adventures growing up with a group of cousins on Prince Edward Island. Montgomery consciously modeled the Story Girl after her own childhood. The two novels are both funny and touching.

This collection by Lucy Maud Montgomery is very highly recommended to her fans, and to new readers who may find her novels and stories as addictive as her fans have.

It is too bad that the rights for kindle to put book number 4 and 6 into digital form have not been arranged yet or allowed, but that is not this publishing house's fault! It is quite as perfect as it can be and at a wonderful price!
The books are so much better than the movies! Such a wonderful story line! :)
