Anne of Green Gables

Title: Anne of Green Gables

Author: Lucy Maud Montgomery

Pages/Format: 429/E-book

What I Thought: Anne of Green Gables is a great book.  It’s about an orphan named Anne who goes to live with Marilla Cuthbert and Matthew Cuthbert, who are brother and sister. 

I think Anne is my favorite character- she’s so talkative and imaginative, and I couldn’t help but want things to go well for her.  Being an orphan, and then coming to Green Gables only to find out that the Cuthberts wanted a boy…it was sad.  But it all works out, because Anne gets to stay at Green Gables.  Avonlea is a fictional town, but I so want to stay in a place like that.  Anne did ramble on quite frequently, but since she talks all the time, it was to be expected.   

I also had a soft spot for Matthew Cuthbert- he couldn’t bring himself to send Anne back, and they complement each other really well.  While Anne talks a lot, Matthew is really quiet and shy.  And the scene where he got Anne a dress with puffed sleeves is one of my favorites. 

And when Matthew died, I was so sad!  I loved that Anne decided to give up her scholarship by staying at Green Gables with Marilla, so she wouldn’t have to sell the farm.  That’s devotion right there.   

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.  I liked it, and I can’t wait to read the rest of the books in the series.
