Publisher's Summary

Anne of the Island was published in 1915, seven years after the best-selling Anne of Green Gables, partly because of the continuing clamor for more Anne from her fans - a fan base that continues to grow today!

In this continuation of the story of Anne Shirley, Anne leaves Green Gables and her work as a teacher in Avonlea to pursue her original dream (which she gave up in Anne of Green Gables) of taking further education at Redmond College in Nova Scotia. Gilbert Blythe and Charlie Sloane enroll as well, as does Anne's friend from Queen's Academy, Priscilla Grant. During her first week of school, Anne befriends Philippa Gordon, a beautiful girl whose frivolous ways charm her. Philippa (Phil for short) also happens to be from Anne's birthplace of Bolingbroke, Nova Scotia. Anne, always the good scholar, studies hard, but she also has many life lessons. This book sees Anne leave behind girlhood to blossom into a mature young woman.

Wonderful series of books!

I have enjoyed reading the series of books as a younger adult and now I am enjoying listening to them in my middle-age. In terms of narrator I thought that Colleen Winton was wonderful, it was nice to hear a Canadian accent for a very classic Canadian work of literature. well done!

Super!!!!!!!

This audio book was more than very much enjoyable. I laughed, I cried, and most importantly, I smiled. This book is all and more than what I hoped for Anne when she was older. It is filled with twists and turns! Anne is officially my favourite heroine. The narration was pretty good. It was filled with expression and made the story enjoyable. That is why I rated it the way I did. (L. M. Montgomery ROCKS!!) ;)

Kindred Spirits will love this Audio books

This reader captures Anne's spirit and voice and is versatile enough create unique audio personalities for all of Lucy's beloved characters. I lost myself in Kingsport, Bolingbrook and best of all, Avonlea. This book was truly enjoyable and with a cry-worthy ending.

Classic Story - not the best narrator

Love the Anne of Green Gables series. The narrator was great as Anne. The character transitions were awkward. So many of the characters' readings were choppy.

Good story and performance

While I liked Mary Sarah's portrayals of the characters better this was a good performance. There is one glitch in the editing as well. I am not as pleased with the plot and path of the story as I was the first two but I did enjoy it.

Loved this book

At first, it was hard getting used to listening to Colleen Winton. After listening to Anne of Green Gable's read by Rachel McAdams. But after a few chapters I adjusted and really liked Colleen Winton's voice throughout the book. I loved the first book and this one was just as good, if not better.

bad editing

Colleen Winton was not a bad performer. However, the editing sometimes made her seem like one. There were multiple times when it was clear the different takes have been pieced together because her tone or volume change suddenly, sometimes even in the middle of a sentence. There was one instance where it had been edited so poorly that she was practically speaking over herself. Disappointing considering how much I love this story. They spent hours recording, they couldn't have spent a few more minutes and ensuring the editing was done properly?
