Publisher's Summary

When Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert of Green Gables send for a boy orphan to help them out at their farm, they mistakenly get Anne Shirley, a feisty, independent but warm-hearted 11-year-old girl. Fortunately her sunny nature and quirky imagination win the hearts of her reluctant foster parents and everyone in the community. But not a day goes by without some memorable adventure or prank in the tragicomedy of her life. Early on she accidentally dyes her "cursed" red hair green. Later, in an effort to impress a neighbor, she bakes a cake, but with liniment instead of vanilla. Lucy wrote that Anne is an extension of herself and represents the independent, "new" woman of the emerging 20th century. Individualistic, resourceful, and of a great humanitarian heart, she remains a great role model for girls and women today.

Magical

I loved this book. It was so nice to be transported back to a simpler time of wholesome goodness. I am a guy and usually read sci fi or European Classics, but this was a nice change of pace. I found myself wishing I had grown up on Prince Edward Island at the turn of the twentieth century.

The narrator was perfect(especially her voice for Anne), and I found myself being lulled into another reality very easily. She is much better than the other narrators in the other versions.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is soulfull, be they 12 years old or 100.

Charming

I absolutely adored this reading of anne of green gables. it was like sharing one of my favourite childhood books with a friend. I thought the narrator was excellent- (the male characters voices pretty good which I have found difficult with other readers)- good characterisations, and the tone met the mood of the book beautifully.
Audible- when are you going to get Shelley Frazier's reading of Anne of Avonlea?!?!? PLEASE!
