‘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 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 thing 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 Gables.’
I loved this book.
I remember reading this book as a child and absolutely loving it. I felt just like Anne and she helped me to look at the world differently. One of the things I loved most about Anne as a character, both as a child and now as an adult, was that she wasn’t perfect. She makes mistakes and is able to learn from them.
Reading this book as an adult made for a wonderful, nostalgic reading experience. I found myself admiring different aspect of Anne’s personality now that I am older and a little wiser. The thing that really struck me was how bold and confident Anne was in making friendships. Seeing her desire and drive to build friendships made me want to be a kid again.
I honestly adored this book. I loved all of the characters, the beautiful, poetic writing and the wonderful, heartwarming story. This is definitely one of my all time favourite books and I plan on re reading it many times in the future.
Anne Of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery is a must read for everyone.
