Anne Shirley, the orphan child who brings happiness and love into the lives of her foster family, is one of the most beloved heroines in all of literature. This wildly imaginative, red-headed chatterbox tries to fit into the narrow confines of Victorian expectations, but her exuberant spirit keeps leaping delightfully beyond the bounds.

When Marilla Cuthbert and her brother Matthew find that they are getting too old to work the farm by themselves, they decide to adopt an orphan boy to help out. To their dismay, they are sent a girl by mistake--an impetuous girl with a hopeless lack of manners. Pragmatic Marilla is determined to return her, but warm-hearted Matthew urges that she be given a chance to prove herself. The challenge laid down for this eleven-year-old girl--and the mishaps that befall her before she wins the heart of her foster mother--make for a delightfully charming story.

I was expecting some interesting gender politics, but there were none, at least in the first few episodes, and I lost interest. Also there was something wrong with the sound design which made it difficult to follow the dialogue.

This is a good book! And I am still listening to the playaway - I love hearing some of my favorite lines from the miniseries. However, this particular narrator is not the best. She doesn't really feel like the characters - she's just reading. Also, this is an early playaway version = very choppy recording and is likely to shut off at any time.

A classic that should be a required read for every girl despite Anne's whininess; she manages to display a feminism and gentileness that would soften any heart.

The book is 5 stars, but the narration is not perfect. Her voice for Marilla is excellent, but her voice for Anne is way off - like a middle-aged Anne.

A classic, of course, and good whether its the first or tenth time you've read it. Anne if bright and cheery and as long as you are comfortable reading in the style of LM Montgomery, the story will simply suck you in.
