About the Author
Lucy Maud Montgomery was born on Prince Edward Island, Canada, in 1874 and raised by her maternal grandparents following her mother's death. Biographical accounts of her upbringing suggest a strict and rather lonely childhood. She later spent a number of years working as a teacher before turning to journalism and then, ultimately, to writing fiction. Anne of Green Gables, published in 1908, was her first novel and has remained in print the world over ever since. Montgomery died in Toronto in 1942.

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.
Anne is an attractive young woman who will get plenty of attention from the young men around her. She will get her first proposal of marriage before she even departs for college, hilariously relayed by one of her girlfriends. Anne has carefully cherished romantic dreams of a knight in shining armor, but to her surprise, embarrassment and occasional fury, this is a standard few of her suitors can meet. And Anne will find that perhaps she herself is not quite as ready for romance as she thinks. Her journey of discovery will take her to a very dark place, before the dawn of new hope...
Author Lucy Maud Montgomery wrings a great deal of drama, comedy and suspense out of Anne's romantic adventures in college. The big question, of course, is whether Anne will find and marry her knight in shining armor. The suspense is good to the very last page, and very highly recommended to fans of the Anne of Green Gables series.
The Anne of Green Gables collection is an upbeat story, but with the sadness that comes in life. Anne's foster father figure dies in the first book, so she delays college to help at home. During World War One, the families' children who are in the war are all injured, captured or killed. (About 10% of the Canadian Military were killed and approximately 10% injured according to figures from Wikipedia and the Canadian government website concerning the Canadian Expeditionary Force. ) But through the whole story, despite the adversities, the main characters reach out to others and trust in God even though storms come their way. The characters make mistakes and try to remedy the problems. I think that this collection is a great read, hopefully I have come away from reading it with the determination to do the same.
