Publisher's Summary

Featured title on PBS's The Great American Read in 2018

Eleven-year-old orphan Anne Shirley has just arrived at Green Gables, and already her guardians want to send her back. First, she's not the boy the Cuthberts expected. Second, she talks too much. And even with her generous spirit, the redhead's a trouble magnet. She gets the neighbor drunk and nearly poisons the pastor!

Still, despite a rocky start, the fiery Anne wins over her guardians and her new community. She enjoys life at Green Gables, excels in school, and earns a coveted scholarship. But when tragedy hits, Anne must choose between her dreams and the only home she's ever known.

In this beloved coming-of-age story, Lucy Maud Montgomery drew from her own experiences growing up in Canada during the 19th century to introduce generations of readers and listeners to one of literature's most original and inspiring characters.

Different Voices amazing wow

I’m not sure if there was only one narrator or not because she did so well doing different voices for different characters. It was pretty easy to tell who was talking at what point; she gives them each their own characteristics. She also has such a profound and effective way of elocution. Slowing down at parts, and actually emphasizing the words that are italicized unlike other narrators. Her voice makes me feel like the author herself is narrating because she seems to know the text so well (i don’t know what L.M. Montgomery sounds like tho). She also changes Anne’s voice a little as she gets older which is nice. Not only the narration, but the story itself will always be great. The characters are all so lovable and different and distinguished. There is also some beautiful language at times and many quotable moments. Montgomery never fails to beautifully describe the scenery of Green Gables and Avonlea.

Just the perfect read with the perfect narrator

I'd never read the original book before. It has been on my books shelf for a few years now...but when I discovered that Julia Whelan, one of my all times favorite narrators, performed the narration of this classic I had to get it and finally listening to that, and I'm so glad I did because this was simply perfect! The perfect story narrated by the perfect narrator. I really hope Amazon will get Julia Whelan as the narrator for the entire series of these Anne's books. I'll surely buy the whole package with Ms. J. Whelan as the performer.

A classic

It was fun listening to the story of a young orphan that was both imaginative and caring in spite of her origin or the mix up in her placement with the adoptive family sight unseen. She develops friendships and rivalries that change into friendships and gives love and laughter to some older people who have lacked joy for too long.

Brilliant book, phenomenal performance!

This book fills the reader with hope for life despite of the circumstances that may be faced along the way. It certainly became one of my favorites. Anne Shirley is a force of nature, and Julia Whelan's performance made her even more compelling and captivating! I certainly want to download every book narrated by Whelan now! Get this book! you won't regret it, even if you're read it many times before!
