eBook ✓ Anne of Green Gables ç 320 pages µ As soon as Anne Shirley arrives at the snug white farmhouse called Green Gables she is sure she wants to stay forever but will the Cuthberts send her back to to the orphanage? Anne knows she's not what they expected—a skinny girl with fiery red hair and a temper to match If only sG that comes to her mind Anne is not like anyone else the Cuthberts agree; she is special a girl with an enormous imagination This orphan girl dreams of the day when she can call herself Anne of Green Gable Excitement hung around Anne like a garment shone in her eyes kindled in every featureOh what sheer pleasure it was to spend just a moment in time with Anne and her delightful companions in this little classic What pure joy to catch a glimpse of the beauty of Prince Edward Island I am likely one of the last persons on earth well on Goodreads at least to read this novel What in the world was I waiting for? As a child and adolescent I wrongly assumed that this book would be of no interest to me I wasn’t a ‘girly girl’ and surely this was written for ‘that sort’ of reader right? Wrong By the time I was old enough to know better I thought I had grown too mature in years to pick this one up Wrong again The ‘sort’ of reader that this does appeal to however one who appreciates exuisite writing and vibrant characters one who relishes being steeped in another time and place and one who enjoys an all out fantastic story In short this book should satisfy nearly everyoneYou can’t help but fall in love with Anne She is the friend you have always longed for the daughter that will bring that much needed light in your life that student that any teacher would be proud to instruct She is funny imaginative bright and a regular chatterbox She laments about her red hair apologizes for being a ‘great trial’ to Marilla and always manages to see the positive in most everything However she does maintain a long standing rivalry with her peer Gilbert Blythe She was as intense in her hatreds as in her loves Nothing is ever lukewarm when it comes to Anne’s feelings There were moments I wanted to laugh with her and moments when I wanted to cry When she first arrived at Green Gables Anne learned that it had all been a mistake For Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert meant to adopt a young boy to help with the chores A little girl was not needed It nearly crushed me when Anne fell in love with Green Gables only to find that she must surely be turned away and carted straight back to the orphanage Have you ever noticed what cheerful things brooks are? They’re always laughing I shall always like to remember that there is a brook at Green Gables even if I never see it again What transpires after this will melt even the most hardened heartsSome might say this book is too wholesome too charming and perhaps too unrealistic I have to say that I don’t believe those are good enough reasons to skip reading this enchanting novel It didn’t take place just yesterday so I didn’t expect the trials and tribulations of today’s day and age The events do occur on an idyllic island so I felt the beautiful scenery I was immersed in was wholly believable Anne is not a perfect little girl and each character has their share of flaws Not every story has to be full of doom and gloom to get all the stars Sometimes one just needs to sit back relax and just surrender to the small pleasures in life We could all use a lesson from Anne’s book of optimism here and there Dear old world you are lovely and I am glad to be alive in you

Expected a skinny girl with fiery red hair and a temper to match If only she can convince them to let her stay she'll try very hard not to keep rushing headlong into scrapes and blurting out the first thin The beloved classic 1908 novel about an orphan girl who mistakenly comes to the Prince Edward Island home of aging brother and sister Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert who just wanted an orphan boy to help Matthew with chores After an initial kerfuffle about sending Anne back to the orphanage and getting the boy they had intended hearts are softened and Anne proceeds to upend their lives in what turns out to be very good ways for everyone involvedAnne is eleven years old when she first comes to Green Gables and the novel follows her adventures over the next five years It’s kind of an episodic novel with memorable characters Anne is a chatterbox with a tremendously vivid imagination passionate and sincere Marilla and Matthew are drawn so well that I feel like I really know them though it's disconcerting to realize that Matthew in the book has a long beard My mind's eye refuses to see him that way LOL The miniseries has co opted my imagination And then there's Anne’s classmate Gilbert who lives to regret some initial teasing about Anne's hairThis novel has a healthy sense of humor that sets it apart from most literature of this period and keeps it from being too sticky sweet It’s really so charming with great insights into human nature and lovely descriptions of PEI It's a feel good story and a total comfort read Anne of Green Gables spawned a slew of seuels and five other related novels not to mention any number of film and TV adaptations Not all of the seuels are great reads like this one they start getting progressively sappy but I do recommend the first four books in this series if you liked this one
