✓ Anne of Green Gables ☆ Download by ¿ L.M. Montgomery Excitement hung around Anne like a garment, shone in her eyes, kindled in every feature Oh, what sheer pleasure it was to spend just a moment in time with Anne and her delightful companions in this little classic What pure joy to catch a glimpse of the beauty of Prince Edward Island I am likely one of the last persons on earth well, on Goodreads at least to read this novel What in the world was I waiting for As a child and adolescent, I wrongly assumed that this book would be of no interest to me I wasn t a girly girl and surely this was written for that sort of reader, right Wrong By the time I was old enough to know better, I thought I had grown too mature in years to pick this one up Wrong again The sort of reader that this does appeal to however one who appreciates exquisite writing and vibrant characters, one who relishe This story is cute, touching, heart warming, tear jerking In other words, a classic The target audience is definitely not me I would say it would be perfect for a teenage girl living in Canada in the early 1900s That makes sense, because that is exactly what Anne is However, the point of this obvious detail is that sometimes it is fun to read a classic and try to put your mind in the mindset of who it was written for at the time A couple of the storylines seemed silly or to not make sense, but if I stopped and changed my mindset, it would click.
A bit of a history lesson combined with a well written story If you haven t read this before, give it a shot and maybe you will find your inner early 1900s Canadian teenager Matthew E Marilla Conducono Una Vita Abitudinaria Nel Pacifico Paesino Di Avonlea Ormai Anziani, Decidono Di Adottare Un Orfano Che Li Aiuti A Mandare Avanti La Fattoria Ma Invece Del Ragazzo Promesso Dall Orfanotrofio, A Casa Cuthbert Arriva Anna, Una Bambina Dotata Di Una Inesauribile Immaginazione Che Finir Per Conquistare Tutti Dentro Di Me Devono Esserci Tante Anna Diverse, A Volte Penso Che Sia Per Questo Penso Che Sono Una Persona Cos Difficile Se Fossi Un Anna Sola Sarebbe Tutto Molto Pi Facile, Ma Anche Molto Meno Interessante Et Di Lettura Da Anni yo Anne has no chill, she is practically a talking machine, I am not complaining tho I m so glad I ve finally read this book I started reading it as a young girl, and got distracted by the 10 other books I was reading at the time and never finished it 4.
5 starsAnne, my lovely, I feel restoredMarilla Anne sat down on Marilla s gingham lap, took Marilla s lined face between her hands, and looked gravely and tenderly into Marilla s eyes I m not a bit changed not really I m only just pruned down and branched out The real meback here is just the same It won t make a bit of difference where I go or how much I change outwardly at heart I shall always be your little Anne, who will love you and Matthew and dear Green Gables and better every day of her lifeFull RTC.
Pre review You know what I ve been wanting to reread these books for probably a decade, and I m still inexplicably battling my ever present book funk, so I m just gonna do it Gilbert Blythe, you were my first and best book boyfriend See you soon The beloved classic 1908 novel about an orphan girl who mistakenly comes to the Prince Edward Island home of aging brother and sister Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert they had wanted a boy to help Matthew with chores After an initial kerfuffle about sending Anne back to the orphanage and getting the boy they had intended, hearts are softened, and Anne proceeds to upend their lives in what turns out to be very good ways for everyone involved.
Anne is eleven years old when she first comes to Green Gables, and the novel follows her adventures over the next five years It s kind of an episodic novel, with memorable characters Anne is a chatterbox with a tremendously vivid imagination, passionate and sincere Marilla and Matthew are drawn so well that I feel like I really know them though it s disconcerting to realize that Matthew in the book has a lon
I never read Anne s story when I was younger, so when I heard that Rachel McAdams was narrating the first in the series I knew I had to give it a go I m a sucker for a celebrity narrated audiobook if you haven t checked out Maggie Gyllenhaal s reading of The Bell Jar, do that now.
It s wonderful to read a story that, for the most part, is extremely uplifting There s hardly anything truly terrible that happens in this story, and that s quite refreshing Granted, it is a children s novel and from the early 1900 s so it has that moralistic quality to it wherein each incident Anne undergoes resolves itself with a lesson learned But it was delightful, and Anne s optimism is contagious Rachel McAdams also does a great job at encapsulating that attitude I felt like I could hear her smile.
If, like me, you ve never given Anne s story a chance, I can highly recommend the audiobook route Dear old world, she murmured, you are very lovely and I am glad to be alive in you This quote really accurately depicts how Anne lives her life and what makes you love her as a character She s stubborn and makes mistakes, but she also has a huge imagination and sees the world as beautiful and full of possibilities.
I loved this SO much and I m sad I never read it before I love all the characters and the plot, and it s really fun to see Anne grow up through this book The writing is also really really lovely.
I can t wait to read the sequels and follow Anne s story This has made it up to my favorite books of all time list, that s for sure.
REREAD NOTESI didn t think I could love this book but somehow I do I AM SO EMOTIONAL.
Which is all well and good until it comes down to reviewing it Basically what I m saying is I m at a loss for words I m saying I have nothing TO say This is just too damn good.
I didn t read this as a kid, or for many years after I didn t think I d be interested I had a copy for years with no intention of picking it up, because I am shallow as hell and only bought a copy in the first place because it s pretty In my defense look HOW pretty Honestly, I can t remember why I decided
