Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert had decided to adopt an orphan. They wanted a nice sturdy boy to help Matthew with the farm chores. The orphanage sent a girl instead - a mischievous, talkative redhead who the Cuthberts thought would be no use at all. But as soon as Anne arrived at the snug, white farmhouse called Green Gables, she knew she wanted to stay forever. And the longer Anne stayed, the harder it was for anyone to imagine Green Gables without her --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

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.

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.
To me, reading was (and is) escapism and no adult ever tried to tell me otherwise. I assume they thought that reading about other times and other cultures would add to my knowledge and sharpen my imagination. I read Nancy Drew and Tarzan and historical novels and romances and biographies and a copy of 1984 that I found in the attic. And I read and loved the "Anne" books.
The poignant story of an orphaned girl born fifty years before I arrived on earth was as real to me as my own life. The setting on a farming island community in Canada was quaint, but the themes and characters were familiar. Which is another way of saying that they were universal and timeless. The people in the Anne books dressed differently and talked differently, but I had no trouble recognizing and understanding their dreams and aspirations, their anger and pettiness, their generosity and jealousy.
My sisters and I read and loved and shared them and 60 years later we sometimes say, "Do you remember when Mrs. Lynde said....?" or "Doesn't that remind you of the time that Gilbert and Anne....?" We had no trouble at all "relating" to those books and I wish that the author knew how much enjoyment they gave us.
I can (and do) still read them and in some ways my enjoyment is deeper. Although the author was a relatively young woman when she wrote the earliest of the series, she had grown up with old relatives and was capable of painting them realistically and lovingly. The generations weren't segregated as they are today and children and old people were often close companions and allies. What a wonderful way of life.
When I first got my Kindle, I down-loaded a collection, but it lacked ANNE OF WINDY POPLARS and ANNE OF INGLESIDE, which are two of my favorites. I know now that the author wrote the first book of the series (ANNE OF GREEN GABLES) in 1908 and (following up on its popularity) continued with ANNE OF AVONLEA (the story of Anne's two years as a village "school ma'am") in 1909, ANNE OF THE ISLAND (the story of Anne's four college years) in 1915 and ANNE'S HOUSE OF DREAMS (the story of Anne's early years as a wife and mother) in 1917. Two books that dealt primarily with Anne and Gilbert's grown children (RAINBOW VALLEY and RILLA OF INGLESIDE) appeared in 1919 and 1921.
Then the author left the series for more than a decade. It wasn't until the 1930's that she went back and told the story of Anne's three years as a high school principal (ANNE OF WINDY POPLARS) and the story of her young family growing up (ANNE OF INGLESIDE.) Those two books are not yet in the public domain and I don't know why they are offered for free in this collection, but I'm glad to have all of the books together with a fine interactive chapter of contents.
I re-read WINDY POPLARS and I still think it's a delightful book. Times have changed, but there are still wealthy, influential families who think they are above the rules and children from poor families struggling to over-come huge obstacles. There are still teachers who pour their hearts into their jobs and resentful ones who wish they could be somewhere, anywhere, else. There are tragedies and frustrations and some people deal with them wisely and others foolishly. Lucy Maud Montgomery had her own problems in life, but her belief in the value of doing your best, cheerfully and generously, shines through her stories. Her observations are sharp and humorous, but never vicious or unkind. These books are not out-dated, but as relevant today as when they were written.

Recomendo muito, ótima edição para colecionar!
Through the series we see Anne grow up and have children of her own and experience and cope with life's ups and downs.The author loves her characters and Prince Edward Island. The latter is almost a character in the books. Her descriptions of the island and its woods, flowers and fields are lyrical and poetic.There might be a bit too much of this for some modern readers but it is a price well worth paying for some beautiful stories and eloquent writing.
I loved it.
Recomendo para quem quer começar a ler um livro em inglês e ainda está inseguro a respeito. É fácil de ler, letras grandes e vocabulário comum, do dia a dia.
A capa é magnífica. Muito bem feita, colorida e encantadora como é o livro.
Paguei muito barato e chegou rápido, sem nenhum problema.
My only gripe and it’s regarding what I purchased. I’ve just finished the 4th book in this set and researched the author to find there are more in the series and what is packaged is the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th books! I’ve just bought the 4th and the other ones (seriously, do your research Anne with an E fans) cause I just want to be back in that universe.
Narrado em terceira pessoa, o clássico de 1908 tem um vocabulário antigo e um pouco complicado de entender, porém nada que o ótimo "Dicas de Vocabulário / Word Wise" do Kindle (além do X-Ray - infelizmente não disponível nessa versão gratuita, porém) e a Wikipedia não possam ajudar. Independente deste "problema", venha com Anne viajar ao interior da maravilhosa Prince Edward Island, Canadá. Não irá se arrepender! ;)
Anne Of Green Gables then remained unread and misremembered as tedious until I had a dream in which I was held hostage by terrorists in a bookshop whilst trying to buy a copy! After a dream like that - well I had to read it then, so I downloaded it for humour value.
It was not at all as I remembered it. I fell in love with it from the off. Unmarried brother and sister Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert getting on in years decide they will take in a young boy from an orphanage to help on their farm, in the days before emails and phones and general legal enquiry, their message goes awry, and Matthew is met by a red haired eleven year old Anne Shirley.
Anne Shirley is no ordinary girl. With a flair for imagination, the dramatic and romantic notions about the world, she talks non stop and takes interest in everything around her.
Anne makes the book what it is, she is actually hilarious, over the top, and theatrical, her long speeches made me smile so much. She reminded me of a young me, and I hope that if I ever get to have a daughter she is a total Anne. Anne's funniest moments often come when by some unintentional mishap she gets into trouble, which like any teenager usually leads to her behaving as if the world had ended and refusing to leave her room.
Secondary characters are fun as well, Anne's touching relationship with Marilla that develops over time, and her understated secret love hidden beneath animosity for academic rival Gilbert Blythe.
Anne Of Green Gables was an utter joy to read, and there are several sequels yet to be read, though I doubt any of them will quite live up to this, I tore through this book, smiling constantly. From a book I once dismissed as being complicated and dull I'm now a massive, massive fan. 10/10
Her writing is deceptively simple, meaning more complex than they seem. She writes to her audience without writing down to them. And I have no doubt whatsoever that she, had she wanted, could have written as complex and "literary" books as *any* writer. Her intelligence and education is never put in the foreground, but if you care, you can sense it in the background, a looming big machine which drives everything under these "innocent little" stories.
And the same is true of her humor. She never writes comedy as such, and yet the humor is everywhere, and the books (all of them) are often wonderfully funny.
I am male, and fifty, and like Mark Twain did, I warmly recommend these books. (The same goes for her Emily series, though they are a notch darker than the Anne books.)
Hope you will find it as enjoyable as I am. Heather Nottage.
Anne Shirley is a wonderful character, with her upbeat attitude and forebearance, but I love her more for all the terrible mistakes that she makes and for the love and loyalty that she shows to the other characters.
The story tracks her life from rather humble beginnings, being taken on as an orphan, by mistake, by Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, who grow rather quickly to love her wild imaginings and dramatic leanings. What sells the story, apart from Anne, is the cast of additional characters. They are so well-drawn, that you can imagine each and every one in your mind's eye, and although some may have little to say, they are vividly imprinted on your mind and you feel as though you understand them well. From the busybody Mrs.Lynde, to snide Josie Pye, best friend Diana, and the competitive Gilbert Blyth, you want to know more about them all.
The book leaves Anne in her late teens and about to embark upon a new chapter in her life. I can't wait to read the next instalment again. It's a little treat for children and adults alike. If you haven't had the chance to become enchanted by Anne, I would highly recommend it.
`Anne of Green Gables' is the story of an elderly woman, Marilla, and her brother, Matthew, who are adopting a boy to help them on their farm. To their surprise they end up with a girl, Anne, and they are unsure about what to do with her. Anne wins them over with her charm and love but they soon discover she is attracted to trouble...
Anne is the perfect literacy character. She is flawed, she makes mistakes but still tries to see the best in life. She makes you laugh when she demonstrates her famous Shirley temper and it is heart warming to see her grow up and mature. I also have a soft spot for Matthew who is Anne's biggest supporter and is always loyal to her. Marilla is less likeable but she shows her true colours in the end.
I loved Montgomery's writing, I thought she had the perfect mix of humour and wit and I found some parts of the book laugh out loud funny! I thought the plot was clever and Montgomery dealt with Anne's upsetting childhood in a very sensitive way. It is the perfect read for anyone aged eight and up. It's still enjoyable for adults!
I highly recommend `Anne of Green Gables' and I hope that you love Anne as much as I do!
