I listened to the audiobook rendition of this classic novel while refoldering. I read the book in print 20 years ago. I guess it was atypical of a 16-year old boy to read this book, but I was not a typical 16-year old boy. Megan Follows helped too. Anyhow, Anne Shirley wins me over every time with her cheerfulness, resourcefulness, intellect and determination. The character I relate to most is Matthew Cuthbert who I think is my literary hero. (I wept when he died). Anyone who hasn’t read this wonderful novel – child or adult, male or female – should give it a try.
