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.

Totally Delightful in a Not Always Delightful Modern World. Anne (with an 'E') is charming as the loquacious girl first arriving at Green Gables and equally charming as a wise and endearing young woman. Don't miss it, not matter your age. This 'old dog' has learned a few new tricks from reading this book.

Good read. A good read

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:(

Anne of Green Gables. Love Anne and this series of books. Great for young readers, as well as those more mature.

Classic!. I so enjoyed this exciting and colorful story. Anne’s energy and enthusiasm for life is touching. It reminded me of my childhood adventures. A recommended read for any age!

Best book ever. One of the best things about this book in my opinion is how the author really brings the story to life with how she describes the world so you can really see it in your minds eye. would recommend this book to any age definitely. one of my all time favorites


The writing it this book is truly astounding. Definitely a must read (that is if you have the time).

Incredible. I think this book is absolutely amazing and incredible. I probably shouldn’t have but I watched the show, “Anne With an E” before reading this and I have to say, they both tell the same wonderful winding story! The book really helped me understand what was really going on. I wish I read it sooner!

Typos. This 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?

I LOVE IT!!!. It’s my fav book of all time the girl ANNE spelled with an E is so imaginative an funny she’s my fav book character of ALL TIME

Timeless tale. What a gem. Read this to my children for night time reading and it was a delightful story!

Great Story!. A true classic. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this!

A must read. A wonderful childhood classic

Beautiful book!. This book was a great master piece! I will be reading the whole saga, it literally made laugh, cry and have so many emotions!

Amazing. I’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.

wonderful classic. i used to watch the tv show as a child, and watched the netflix adaptation, but never got to read the story. i enjoyed reading about anne and her life in green gables. the descriptions gave life and scenery to the story. truly a great classic story.

Very good. This book was fantastic...I could relate to Anne many times. I laughed, cried, and mourned with her throughout the whole book. I am excited to read book number two in the Anne of Green Gables series

Loved this. I 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.

Anne of Green Gables. Wonderful book with lovable characters and scenery. I didn’t want it to end.

Excellent book. One of the best books I’ve read. I would enjoy reading it again. It’s one of those books you feel connected to and laugh and cry as you read it.

Better than the Movie. Reminds me of my Grandmother and her sister.

Anne of Green Gables. This has always been and always will be one of my favorite books. It’s is so beautifully written. Anne is such a lovable character and will always be like a friend to me. I hope you give it a read and love it as much as I do.

Such a beautiful and touching story!. This is a must read for everyone.

I love Anne of Green Gables. I know this story by heart, yet I love yo read it again and again.

Charming and witty. I laughed out loud every so often and I texted funny lines to my friends. The story is innocent and Anne is likeable. I’m glad I read it and I’ll continue the series.

Matthew Cuthburt’s Death. Can we all just agree that when Matthew died, 𝗪𝗘 𝗔𝗟𝗟 𝘤𝘳𝘪𝘦𝘥?! Matthew was indeed one of my favorite characters and when he died, holy cow, I cried as of he was a real person. It hurt because during that chapter I could only think about how good he was to Anne. Rest in Peace Matthew Cuthbert. 😔

Wonderful 📚. I loved this book. It is one of the best classical books you will ever read. I was so sad at the end, but it was still really good! You will not regret reading this book.

Amazing book. Having seen the movie first, I finally got to read the book and loved it so much. Anne teaches you that a little imagination goes a long way! Also, if you are a classic movie lover, see the movie by the same name made in 1934. The actress who has played Anne is simply wonderful!

Ann of Green Gables. How did it take me 50 years to read this classic? I was sad it ended at page 777! What a masterpiece and delightful book!

Uplifting positive story. An enjoyable light read. I had affection for the characters. Suitable for all ages. Parents reading it may find a different message than will a teen.

Awesome. A beautiful story. I saw the TV adaptations first, both the older movies and the more recent episodes released by Netflix. The book is quite different in some ways and is really worth reading. The writing is delightful and wise. Awesome book!

Delightful. A lovely book about a delightful girl. Well written, easy to enjoy. Highly recommended.

I Recommend. I watched the show on Netflix and it was really good, I figured I'd give it a read to see all the details. I would also recommend watching it for yourself on Netflix it’s called “Anne with an E”. It’s a quite cute story.

Love This!. Always love reading this series!

Where are the editors?. The book was wonderful. But somebody sure does need to fix the typos in this edition!

ENCHANTED. Magical book. It’s like living in Avonlea with the Cuthburts. It’s absolutely enchanting.

I should. Sw to assault ww w Andrew is I W I wwsss

Anne of Green Gables. No thank you

Anne with an E. What a wonderful tale. I have loved this book since my childhood.

What a wonderful book 📕.. A little orphan girl 👧🏼 like Anne of Green Gables herself has a very big imagination 💭. Annie Mautner

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. Just read it won’t disappoint!!!

Wonderful. It’s a must read for everyone. So much love and happiness in each page.

Best book ever known to mankind. I 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.

Great book. This book was wonderful. It’s filled with imagination and heart that can’t be denied.

Lovely Reading. What a beautiful and inspirational story. I’m a lover of artfully framed words, and this book does not disappoint me. However, I wish proof reading had been better used!

Anne of Green Gables. Imaginations As full of revelations Anne of Green Gables Bette with an e 😂😘

Amazing !!!. I honestly loved it, definitely recommend both the movie and show

It was enjoyable to read. I like 👍 the storyline of the book

A favorite. PSA! 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.

The most wonderful book. You will not be disappointed it’s a wonderful uplifting book, I adore it !

Such excellent writing keeping you mesmerised throughout. Fantastic read! So much joy and laughter throughout! I couldn’t put it down. So wish there was follow up! Excellent 5*👏🏻

Anne of Green gables. Lovely classic. Soft and descriptive book.

Beautiful. Enthralling, heartwarming… a truly beautiful story and now one of my firm favourites.

Boring. I fell asleep reading this

One word.. amazing.

One of my favourite books I’ve read.. Such an amazing storyline and concept that ‘sometimes overriding change is good’. I have watched the series for this on Netflix and I fell in love with the characters and setting. No words can describe how I feel about it ; each time I go to watch the episodes again, I feel like tearing up. So here I am reading the books, which are slightly different from the series as it was modernised, and I am not disappointed. We need more books like this!! Such a beautiful story.

A delight. I'm trying to get back in to reading and this has been a fantastic read dawnadele4

Good. Great

Anne of green gables. I loved it it!

Incredible, brilliant, moving, perfect. What a wonderful book; so exquisitely written and so beautifully thought-out. A true pleasure, and one that I enjoyed all the more as an adult. It truly reminded me of so many important things that I had forgotten in life, and was a joyous journey. There came a point at which I couldn't put it down. Incredible characters, a lovely tale, and so much sweetness and optimism. Simply divine.

Anne of Green Gables. I must have read this book more than 50 times over the past 30 years and still laugh and cry at the same parts. This wonderful piece of writing is timeless. Now my 8 years old daughter is starting to discover the delight of the Anne of Green Gable Series.

Anne. I love this! Grew up with her and this book brings happiness to the soul... Gimme more please...

Anne of Green Gables. Lovely story, just as enjoyable this time as the first time I read it in my teens. I intend to introduce my daughter to the exploits of Anne Shirley.

A classic worth rereading. In a world gone mad how joyful it was to revisit Anne of Green Gables. Funny, sad and full of all the beauty in the world. I loved it as much today at 55 years as I did when I read my mother’s copy when I was 12.

Beautiful!. An innocent beautiful story that every girl who holds sweetness and daydreams in her heart should read.

Aged well. Read it when I was a teen and liked it. Now forty years later I have my own daughter and the book is even better.

Loved. Enchanting, heartfelt and left me nostalgic for childhood adventures in the countryside.

This the most inspiring,Extraodinary,Extravagant,Excruciating beautiful. Every thing in it is so exquisite,Lovely,Awesome,Intelligent, smart and it helps you a great deal through through times we all go through and we just need that inspirationally,Fantastic

Anne of Green Gables. I'm only 12 but have read this book about 20 times! Best book ever! I still cry and laugh and this book has got me through the hard times!!!! Thank you Anne!!! We love you!

Lovely. Beautiful language, painting pictures in my head. Creates a dream of what the world should or could be like. Wish I hadnt refused to read this wonderful story as a child, it may have given me a different outlook on life :)

Learn about imagination from Anne of Green Gables. I loved Anne when I first read this as a teenager! Now as a grandmother I have read this to my granddaughter. We now share the love for the characters and the beauty of Avonlea and Green Gables. Sad to reach the end but ready to continue reading the sequels. Thoroughly recommend these books! We can learn many lessons from these characters; especially Anne’s optimism and imagination.

Anne of Green Gables. I absolutely love this book. It is one of my ultimate favourite books of all time. I recommend for every teenage girl to read this book as it will change their life forever....

Heart warming. A rewarding read with beautiful imagery of the Canadian coastline and an interesting, pleasant plot line. a heart warming read great for kids and adults alike.

Perfect. I am a 9 year old kid and I love the story......😍😍😍😍🧐😜🤪😎😚😗😖😛〰️🟤〰️🟠🔺➰🔸🔛🟠

Lovely reading!. It was as enjoyable to read as when I'd read it as a young adult. The iPhone version is an absolute bonus in that I can even read to myself, in darkness, while getting the kids to sleep. I can't wait to read on in the series!

Anna. Best book I ever 🐬🐟🐳🐳🐬🐳🐳🐟🐳🐟🐟🐟💐🌸🌷🐙🐘🐑⚡🌺🌻🌹🍀🌴🌵🌾🐚🍁🍃🍃🍂

Love AOGG!!!!!!. I am only 12 but I've read all 8 of the Anne books at least 4 times! I LOVE Anne of Green Gables!!!!!

"Splendid". Anne of Green Gables will have you dreaming in prose. The heartfelt adventures in Avonlea are clearly a classic for a reason.

Anne of Green Gables. How 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. I cannot get enough of the girl with hair like carrots.

classical reader. I truly enjoyed this book and felt surprised at the difference there was between the book, series and the movies made from it.

Beautiful. Beautiful & enthralling.

Childhood revisited. I read this book approximately 33 years ago and when I found it again I thought I'd revisit it. I love it now as I loved it then. What a lovely, hearty and wholesome story. If i'd have had a girl I'd have gladly shared this book with her. I recommend it to both young and old. Just lovely!

Anne of Green Gables. An absolute classic! A must read for all ages!

Anne of green gables. Amazing, just like I remembered when I was in school!

Anne of Green Gables. Warm hearted story. I loved how the author made Anne a delightful person and gave her instantly likable friends. Of course, there's also the quotes in the book that make this story so memorable.

Review of Ann of Green Gables. Until 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!

Amazing!. I loved reading this and will continue reading the series!

This great book. I thought it was an amazing book definitely 5 star out of 5. I loved this book! If you haven't read it you should definitely read it.

Great story that stands the test of time. Anne is a girl testing expectations and trying to find her place in small-town Canada. Great piece of Canadian culture

Great story. Funny...I grew up on pei and sat through the play every year...we still haven't read the book the island is famous for in school, and I'm in high school.....I guess it's easier just to see the play

Anne o Green Gables. I have seen the musical of “Anne of Green Gables”, but not the book page by page. Twice I almost had tears in my eyes, when I read towards the end of the story. It’s a famous book, and it’s very enjoyable for me. It’s the best iBook I have read so far.

Very well written. Very good story. Descriptive, imaginative, and fun, everything I old ask for in a book!

Truly a classic. A very good read, with some laughs and some tears. Recommended for all ages.

A good happy read.. Not too many books can make me laugh out loud while reading, but this book had many many laughs. Smiles too. Just a good, happy read. Perfect with a vacation beach or a fireplace with cocoa! Excellent book.

Anne of Green Gables. This is a fantastic book. Anne's imagination and ambition reaches out and inspires the reader.
