Everyone’s favorite redhead, the spunky Anne Shirley, begins her adventures at Green Gables, a farm outside Avonlea, Prince Edward Island. When the freckled girl realizes that the elderly Cuthberts wanted to adopt a boy instead, she begins to try to win them and, consequently, the reader, over.
One of my unofficial goals of the year is to read more classic books. Luckily the 2017 Reading Challenge gave me the chance to pick up this book. I have watched and loved the movies of Anne Shirley for a long time now.
I mostly listened to this on Audiobook. Rachel McAdams narrated it and I think it was a perfect choice. Even sped up she still sounded great and the words were clear. I would suggest listening to this book if you decide to give it a try.
It’s been a while since I’ve seen the movie and I was so glad that it followed the book so closely. I had a great time remembering the different things that happened and laughing at my favorite parts. I had forgotten how long winded Anne was and how overly dramatic she can be, but that’s all part of her charm.
This was a wonderful classic children’s book with amazing characters and plot. I would recommend this to everyone. Read it and then go watch the 1985 version movie!
