Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery Book Summary

An Apple Books Classic edition.

Mark Twain called the protagonist of this 1908 book the “most lovable child in fiction.” Anne Shirley, a hopeful 11-year-old, is an orphan. The beloved novel begins as Anne is (wrongly) assigned to the care of aging brother and sister Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, who had asked for a boy to help work on Green Gables, their family farm in Canada’s Prince Edward Island province.

Initially disappointed, Matthew and Marilla are quickly won by Anne’s spirited personality - as are we. Anne wants nothing more than a home, yet try as she might to fit in, her manners are lacking. She shouts in the face of injustice. She talks constantly, often about imaginary friends and made-up events. She accidentally serves wine to her first real friend, sending her home drunk. Will Anne’s irrepressible spunk keep her from finding a permanent place at Green Gables?

For over 100 years, readers have fallen in love with Canadian author L.M. Montgomery’s coming-of-age story and its freckly, redheaded heroine. Over the course of the 11 books in the series, we delight in watching Anne grow from an impulsive, charming child into a mature and kind young woman.

Anne of Green Gables (L.M. Montgomery) Book Reviews

A favoritePSA! There are 8 books in this series, definitely read the first 3 or 4. They start to get boring after those though with half the books being about characters other than Anne. I've loved the 1985 Canadian adaptation s of Anne of Green Gables for years (give those a watch if you've seen and loved Netflix's Anne with and E(I like them so much I couldn't get into Anne with an E because the actors just didn't feel right)).Finally got around to reading the books last year and absolutely loved the first half of the series but have yet to finish the last two books..Score: 5/5

AmazingI’ve watched the movie 3 times over and over again on Netflix and I thought it would be nice if I also read the book. I must say that I am left breathless. The book was beautiful but I must note that the book ended quite abruptly. It’s painful not knowing what will happen next. I dp hope the author wrote a part two..Score: 5/5

Woo!!Absolutely beautiful! Anne is such a lovely and fun character, she had me entertained the entire book. I love how childish and free she was and how determined she was to get what she wanted. Matthew is such a sweet character, he weighs out Marilla’s “coldness” (she’s not entirely horrible) perfectly. I can’t believe it took me so long to pick up this book:(.Score: 5/5

TyposThis is one of my favorite books. I don’t understand why so many typos are present and the grammar is so off from the original in this version. It seems as if it was retyped by someone who spoke another language. I guess this was allowed to be published as is?.Score: 3/5

Anne of green gables“For we pay a price for everything we get or take in this world; and although ambitions are well worth having, they are not to be cheaply won, but exact their dues of work and self-denial, anxiety and discouragement” As I read this book I fell more and more in love with it truly one of a kind. such a wonderful story that through it all makes you smile with such a wonder feeling inside yourself.

Best book ever known to mankindI absolutely love Anne of Green Gables and anyone who dares to insult this beautiful piece of artwork should be afraid because I will find you and make you like the book. I have read every single book in the series and it was so much fun. I read these books in 5th grade and it’s a good book series for people around that age especially. I mean I personally think Anne of Green Gables is an enjoyable read for all ages regardless of what some people may think *cough cough* people with terrible taste and no sense of appreciation for fine literature. I mean god just because you can’t understand it doesn’t mean it’s not good. And if you can’t understand it shouldn’t you make in effort to try to understand it? I read little women in 4th grade and sure it was confusing cuz duh I was like 9 but I read it again and understood more and now I actually like it. So if you don’t like the book, read it again ( that was not a suggestion that was a command just FYI). Happy reading! Hole you guys enjoy !!! 😆🙃 BTW I’m not a crazy psycho who needs help it’s just that I’m super protective of this book cuz it’s one of my favs and I LOVE books all I ever do is read, I mean, my username ain’t book addict for nothing. Also I’m not this bossy ISTG and besides I mean like I’m 13 what can you expect hormones and all..Score: 5/5

Loved thisI liked the depth of the characters and descriptions so vivid I could almost see and smell the flowers and landscape. I wish I’d read this as a girl but perhaps I could not have appreciated it as I have now. I am sure I will read this again in the future. My only wish is that it had gone on further into Anne’s life. I did not expect to love this book as much as I do..Score: 5/5

Kindred Spirit"Anne of Green Gables" by Lucy Maude Montgomery is one of my favorite books as well as a time honored classic. The story of this imaginative, red headed little girl, whose tongue is hung in the middle, as Mrs. Lynde would say, brings everything a good story needs. Laughter, everyday life, and, at times, heart ache, are melded together so perfectly in the life of Anne. Though she makes many mistakes on her way, this lovable book carries us into Anne's unique world and guides us through her first five years of life at Green Gables with Marilla and Matthew..Score: 5/5

Review of Ann of Green GablesUntil recently, I never read this book. I've seen all the movies and now I realize that the movies were great because they stayed true to the book. This book is a great read. The author writes so descriptively that you can paint a picture of the scenes in your mind. The characters are well developed and multi-dimensional. Best of all, it is a wonderful testament to a girl's childhood. An experience every girl can relate to. It surpasses boundaries of culture, nation, and family. A must read for all!.Score: 5/5

Anne of Green GablesHow to begin? Anne of Green Gables is one of those books that come into your life and become part of your very soul. After the first few chapters, I became an addict, I simply could not get enough. About half way through, I wanted to drag out the ending, hoping I could make it last. Needless to say, I fail miserably. Anne of Green Gables has made me laugh, cry, roll my eyes and shake my head with rage at fictitious characters in the beautiful world of Avonlea. What wouldn't I give to disappear into that world. This novel is spectacular. I cannot recommend it highly enough and it shall always sit in my personal top five favourites.
