Anne grows up and proves the promise of her youth by being a lovable, sunny young woman with an infinite capacity for enjoying "Patty's Place" at college and life in general, especially when it brings her own love story.
to be made and received, being pleasant or otherwise, according to whether callers and called-upon were heartily in sympathy with Anne's hopes, or thought she was too much puffed-up over going to college and that it was their duty to "take her down a peg or two."
The A.V.I.S. gave a farewell party in honor of Anne and Gilbert one evening at the home of Josie Pye, choosing that place, partly because Mr. Pye's house was large and convenient, partly because it was strongly suspected that the Pye girls would have nothing to do with the affair if their offer of the house for the party was not accepted. It was a very pleasant little time, for the Pye girls were gracious, and said and did nothing to mar the harmony of the occasion -- which was not according to their wont. Josie was unusually amiable -- so much so that she even remarked condescendingly to Anne,
"Your new dress is rather becoming to you, Anne. Really, you look ALMOST PRETTY in it."
"How kind of you to say so," responded Anne, wit
Anne's personality really comes to life,fun following her discovery of what she truly wants. very nice.
Anne of the Island...it's a very nice book ..there is a super romance in that..anyone will dream for having...and its jus let u feel that u belong to their world..u do live somwhere in Avonlea...only thing is the narration of the surrounding is bit too long and rather repeating like..after all i can say that i really love this book....
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.
it's a wonderful book..the romance between Anne and Gilbert is simply delightful.
A friend borrowed my copy of Anne of the Island. I never got it back, I guess it means she liked it. I, on the other hand, don't. OK, much--not flat out dislike. Before reaching HS, I adored the book; but as i grew up, I found this installment of the Anne Series dull and--I can't remember whether it lacks romance or has too much of it--weak as a romance novel. Too bad Anne of the Island lacks the sparkle L.M. Montgomery captured with Anne of Green Gables. *shrugs* I as a true Anne & Gilbert fan, HOWEVER, CANNOT discount the closure this book has given me. Maybe just for that I could give it a 5, haha. Well, no, I give it a 3. =)
Loved the book. A very nice and interesting story providing one has read the previous books of the series. Though it's not neccessary to read the previous books to 100% enjoy this book.
