Anne of Green Gables

Anne

Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

Pub: 1908

An orphan girl is adopted by a set of elderly siblings on Prince Edward Island.

“But if you call me Anne, please call me Anne with an ‘e’.”

It’s been a long time since I’ve read the Anne series, and I have to say, I think I enjoyed it more now than I did when I was younger. Some of the prose was still a bit difficult to get through, as the narrator had a way of waxing poetically about the scenery and seasons. It did make me recall, though–and appreciate–how closely in line the 1985 movie followed to the book. It’s been awhile since I’ve seen it, but there was very little in the book that I didn’t recall seeing in the movie.

I’m not sure if I’ll continue with the series; if I recall, the books after this tend to become less and less plot-driven, but I’m glad I took the time to re-read this one.

    I read Anne of Green Gables for the first time last year and then re-watched the movie. I definitely liked the book better than the movie, although I thought Megan Follows performance as Anne was really good.

    Anne of Green Gables! My favorite novel 🙂 I reread it recently for the first time in a few years, and I got a lot more out of it now that I’m an adult…and I love the 1985 adaptation! Great casting.

    I loved the Anne books when I first read them years ago (it must be something like a decade). Your post makes me want to reread them. 🙂
