I have enjoyed reading the series of books as a younger adult and now I am enjoying listening to them in my middle-age. In terms of narrator I thought that Colleen Winton was wonderful, it was nice to hear a Canadian accent for a very classic Canadian work of literature. well done!

This audio book was more than very much enjoyable. I laughed, I cried, and most importantly, I smiled. This book is all and more than what I hoped for Anne when she was older. It is filled with twists and turns! Anne is officially my favourite heroine. The narration was pretty good. It was filled with expression and made the story enjoyable. That is why I rated it the way I did. (L. M. Montgomery ROCKS!!) ;)

Any additional comments?
I am currently working my way through the Anne series, which I loved as child. after much research, of the three versions currently available on audible I finally decided on this one. I wasn't disappointed but the narration is not quite up to the standard of Mary Sarah in Anne of Avonlea. Don't get me wrong it was very acceptable and I have heard far worse. If you are looking for a version of "Anne of the Island," then this one is most certainly up to the job. Relax and enjoy the feel good story but be aware, currently not all the "Anne" books are available on audible so you will have to go elsewhere for the others which is a little disappointing.

We (my 11 and 8 year old and I ) had already listened to rachel mcadams and Meghan follows reading the previous two Anne books. I chose this one based on reviews.
It is a terrible performance - so wooden and stilted that at first I thought it was computer generated. My 11 year old said she wasn’t enjoying it. We managed to listen to about 45 minutes of the 8 hours before deciding we couldn’t bear it anymore and switched it off.
Colleen Winton is not the right narrator for this book. There is so little variation in her voice and tone at time that it becomes monotonous and you find you’re not listening any more. I am sad I wasted an audible credit on this. I am going to look for another version and get a sample first .
