Great book, narrator was a poor choice

The book is great. It's slightly less engaging than the first of the series but the story still remains captivating and worth a read/listen. The narrator however was an extremely poor choice. She reads fine, but if you are trying to find yourself deep in the story you'll have a hard time getting past the British accent applied to a Canadian. This is especially annoying if you just finished the first novel narrated by Rachel McAdams. The audio quality also seemed very dated.

Great story! Poor quality recording

I thoroughly love the Anne of Green Gables series! I bought this book because it was such a good price (a little over a dollar!). However, there was a lot of background noise that seemed to be from a poor-quality recording device. At times I also found the narrator to be stumbling over her words, and taking longer than necessary pauses. That being said, she did a good job with different voices/accents for the various characters. At time she sounded just like Megan Follows in the Anne of Green Gables movie trilogy.

I cannot understand the narrator!

I listened to the first book read by Rachel McAdams, and I absolutely loved it. However, I am extremely disappointed in this book as I can’t understand the British speaking narrator at all!

Wish Mary Sarah would read more of the Anne series

Love Mary Sarah narrating the Anne books. A pleasure listening to the happenings in Avonlea and so disappointed she hasn't read more of the books.

the only thing I did not like was their was little to no difference between voices making it sometimes confusing to know which character is speaking

Wonderful book and great reader!

I love Anne! And now I've got my kids to love her too. Sarah was a perfect narrator and we truly enjoyed it.

Annoying

The narration by Mary Sarah is so annoying that it spoils a lovely book. I love this series and thoroughly enjoyed book one narrated by Rachael McAdams but can't stand listening to this one. The voice sounds far too old for 16 year old Anne, the accent is entirely inappropriate for the location of the books and there is no sign of Anne's joyous and lively personality. Mary Sarah's voice is more suited to a prim, elderly spinster.

OK but not as good as the first

The story just wasn't as good as the first book but Mary Sarah's narration is still wonderful. My primary complaint is that she has apparently not narrated any more of this series so I'll have to flip a coin to see which of the several different editions of the next books I'll be buying. But putting my annoyances aside, I'm still enjoying this series in spite of (or perhaps because of) it's archaic language and culture.

A lovely continuation

A wonderful continuation of the story of Anne. I never tire of these books, they are as dear to me now as an adult as when I was a child.
