5.0 out of 5 stars The most wonderful books in the world, October 22, 1999
This review is from: Anne of Green Gables, Complete 8-Book Box Set: Anne of Green Gables; Anne of the Island; Anne of Avonlea; Anne of Windy Poplar; Anne's House of ... Ingleside; Rainbow Valley; Rilla of Ingleside (Mass Market Paperback)
When I was in high school I was a mean, black leather wearing, heavy metal girl. A long time friend forced me against my will to read the first "Anne" book and my life has been so much more beautiful ever since. These books made me see the magical beauty in nature, bosom friends, family, imagination, and even crabby old ladies (this last has come in handy on many occasions). I now have made a point of buying the set for every girl I consider a friend. I am now 23, and when I have children of my own, girls or boys, I will read them "Anne" as soon as they can understand what I am saying. If you liked the "Anne" books I would also recommend books by Louisa May Alcott (Little Women)and Frances Hodgson Burnett (A Little Princess)

Thanks for this, I can't wait to read it! I feel the same way about the movie "The Secret of Roan Innish." Check it out!

I too was forced aginst my will, to watch the movies, by a friend in grade school. I resisted, pretended I hated it, rolled my eyes......but of course I loved it! I am 34 now and just reading the books! Shame on my friend for not making me read the books as well! ;) Also, as a side note, RTA the television series, OH MY, how I loved it (still do), absolute perfection!

Lovely review. We like the same writers, I love Louisa May Alcott and Frances Hodgson Burnett too. What about Grace Livingston Hill she is in my favorite list too
