Book Review: Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

Author: L.M. Montgomery
Title: Anne of Green Gables
Publication Info: Books in Motion (1999)
ISBN: 1596077328


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.
Rating: ****
