Publisher's Summary

Listen to the timeless classic about the beloved Anne Shirley, a red-haired orphan with a fiery spirit, before the new NETFLIX series premieres. This audiobook includes a foreword by Margaret Atwood, author of The Handmaid's Tale, celebrating the 100th anniversary of this children's favorite!
Eleven-year-old Anne Shirley has never known a real home. Since her parents' deaths, she's bounced around to foster homes and orphanages. When she is sent by mistake to live with Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert at the snug white farmhouse called Green Gables, she wants to stay forever. But Anne is not the sturdy boy Matthew and Marilla were expecting.
She's a mischievous, talkative redheaded girl with a fierce temper, who tumbles into one scrape after another. Anne is not like anybody else, the Cuthberts agree; she is special, a girl with an enormous imagination. All she's ever wanted is to belong somewhere. And the longer she stays at Green Gables, the harder it is for anyone to imagine life without her.
"[Anne is] the dearest and most lovable child in fiction since the immortal Alice."—Mark Twain

Must buy for any Anne of Green Gables fan

The narrator did an excellent job of capturing the personalities of the characters in this novel. Audio was clear and the voice fluctuation was anything but short of superb. You are easily transported to Avonlea and can visualize all of Anne’s friends and escapades. The chapters ran smoothly from one to another without the annoying pauses that can distraught from the story line. I wish this narrator did all of the Anne Series.

Enchanting

Anne was always a favourtite of my mothers, and then mine when I was a teenager, but returning to her in my 30's I found the book as delightful as ever. It is such a well written story of life in a small canadian village, both witty and moving by turns. I actually laughed out loud on the tube. The book is read beautifully and the forword very interesting. I would recommend it is listened to by ALL 11 year old girls. They will love it.

Fabulous for girls of all ages!

A lovely enchanting story, I'm in my 30s and enjoy it as much now as when I first read it at 9! This is a great reading of it that I can thoroughly recommend and I will be looking for more by Kate Burton! Try it if you want an easy listen that is heart-warming but not too sickly sweet. For girls of all ages (8+).
