Anne of Green Gables
Anne Shirley is ecstatic when she goes from being 'Anne of Nowhere in Particular' to Anne of Green Gables. Adopted out of the orphan asylum by mistake, Anne Shirley wins over the Cuthbert siblings and they permit her to stay at Green Gables. Anne of Green Gables tells of her first 5 years at Green Gables in Avonlea, Prince Edward Island which consist of many spots of unintentional trouble, mishaps and being raised under the firm but loving hand of old maid Marilla Cuthbert. Anne soon grows from an freckled, fiery red haired, overtalkative, clumsy and untrained 11 year old to a beautiful, bright and proper young lady loved and admired by all.
Anne of Green Gables is followed by 7 more novels, telling of the befreckled youth's growth throughout her life- everything from college to marriage and even beginning a family of beautiful children who are just as mischevious and bright as her.
Anne of Green Gables long-lived classic full of beautiful language and description of a girl who lived in the early 1900's.

Anne of Green Gables
I have recently read this book, after been recommended to read it, I have actually already read the kids version of it when I was in the Junior School, but I have now read the more recent, adult version of the book. It was fantastic. I love reading classics and especially this one because it was a joy to read and incorporated life challenges as well. I couldn’t keep it out of my hands and the cuteness and franticness of scenes really pulled me into the book and created many visualisations. Anne is a talkative, excited and energetic young girl, the story goes on about her country life and he relationships with friends especially the one and only Gilbert Blythe!
I highly recommend this book to those who are interested in the Classic books, of any ages! It just creates a lovely feeling and atmosphere whenever I read it.
I love Anne of Green Gables. The story of a victorian girl with hair as red as carrots and a very bad temper. Take my word and read the book. If you enjoy this book read the next books in the series. Also read The Secret Garden.
i loved the movie its such a sweet story :) xx
Anne Of Green Gables, *sigh*. What else is there to say? Such a brilliant author and such STRONG characters! This story follows the life and journey of Anne, a fiery, feisty, outgoing, courageous, red-headed orphan adopted by the Cuthberts who own a quaint, lovely farm called Green Gables. Hence the name, Anne Of Green Gables. Lucy Maud (the author) captures this point in history perfectly. I loved Anne Of Green Gables, and I recommended it to anyone. It's a lovely, easy-to-read, historical novel about an independent girl who studies hard, achieves much and perhaps most importantly, finally finds herself a home.
