I read this when I was about ten or eleven, and forgot how much I adored it. I've finally got the whole set of the Anne books, so I sat down to reread this one today. It's easy to read, and charming, and more touching than I'd remembered -- I came over all sniffly a couple of times. And I also had a lot of delighted little giggles.
Rating: 4.4A good old children's classic. It was nice to read this after being disappointed with my previous read.While reading this book, I always imagined myself as Marilla, while Anne is my niece and nephew, because like Anne, they talk non-stop. This novel reminds me a lot of Little Prince, where grown-ups, maturity, imagination, friendships and customary practice are the subject matters.
Heartwarming and heartbreaking

After reading so many not-worth-mentioning, crappy, free, kindle downloaded books, this has been such a refreshing change of pace - well written, poetical, beautiful, and clean; and 'watching' Anne grow-up again is such a pleasure.
BEST BOOK EVER!!! And not just for children!!Seriously, why did I wait so long to read this gem? The writing is simply beautiful and the characters believable and "real".
I finally finished this book! I have watched the tv series on Netflix a couple months ago and I enjoyed it a lot. Then I tried reading the book, after I remembered that I had it since 2016. 1. Anne of Green GablesI was surprised when I read the first chapters. It looked exactly like the tv series! But then, some things were different. I also just couldn't stand Anne–she talked too much. Sometimes there's a whole page full of her dialogue AND READING IT MADE ME TIRED JSKSKSKS. Well, I can say tha...
Read in a fit of nostalgia one afternoon. As lovely as I remember (albeit unsurprisingly extremely dated in some aspects) from reading it as a child.
