With all of the pluck and charm of its eponymous young hero, Rachel McAdams ( The Notebook, Spotlight, Midnight in Paris) delivers a spectacular reading of Montgomery's beloved bildungsroman. In moments both funny and bittersweet, McAdams' voice is imbued with the spark that has made Anne a much-loved symbol of individualism and cheer for over a century.

As a proud Canadian I cannot believe that I have never read this book. I haven't seen any of the movies or watched any of the tv adaptations. I am embarrassed to say that my husband's family home is even inspired by Green Gables.
I listened to this book as I traveled around Europe.
I absolutely adored it.
Rachel McAdams brought the characters to life.
Thank you for providing this platform for me to appreciate this beautiful novel, these moving characters and the classic story that is so truly Canadian.
