Collection of short stories. Portrayed as happenings around Avonlea. Anne shirley occasionally pops up at places. Brings out some deep emotions. The appreciative part of the human emotions portrayed are that they are so true to real life. if you happen to get into the mind of the character you can feel the emotions. BUt yes that is the best part of reading.
One of the stories has a violin music described to show the ultimate of human search; God. Very beautifully written. I\'ll be reading all of Lucy Maud\'s books.
Wonderfully written. I just entered my 30s was a little grief sticken over it :p.
Reading this book and the entire series. Brought back memories of my childhood. and the fun I had. I too had a good imagination :D. COuld not keep the book down till i finished all the 6 books. Wonderful for kids Who are entering their teens just to get a glimpse of Life itself. Even though a story pains are never missed. Everyone has to go through pains. Life still goes on. Would surely recommend to all ages.
The first one was wonderful the second one is even better. Litterally pulled me into the story. There are times when i can totally relate to the antics by Anne. The best part is the childhood is portrayed in the way a kid's life has to be without any commitments and innocence. Especially not being bothered by the opposite sex. Even though its in the back of the mind. Wonderful.
One of the best things about being a kid, is the innocence and purity. Every other thought is what you learn as you grow up. Keeping a check on vice thoughts is what religions have been developed for. This has been wonderfully blended in the story.
NO person can still view his or her world around in the same innocect eyes as they did during thier childhood or teens.. everything gets greying... and in this age you have to force your eyes to look and read books like these to maintain those pure thoughts.
Recalling your own innocent thoughts of childhood helps calm us from the rush of the present age.
