A skinny, red-haired, and freckled orphan girl is mistakenly sent to live with a shy, elderly bachelor and his spinster sister on the north shore of Canada's Prince Edward Island; The elderly siblings had asked to adopt a young boy who could work on the family farm, but the imaginitive and rambunctious Anne Shirley arrives instead, and becomes the center of a series of entertaining adventures.

often. Mrs. Rachel, ponder as she might, could make nothing of it and her afternoon's enjoyment was spoiled.

"I'll just step over to Green Gables after tea and find out from Marilla where he's gone and why," the worthy woman finally concluded. "He doesn't generally go to town this time of year and he NEVER visits; if he'd run out of turnip seed he wouldn't dress up and take the buggy to go for more; he wasn't driving fast enough to be going for a doctor. Yet something must have happened since last night to start him off. I'm clean puzzled, that's what, and I won't know a minute's peace of mind or conscience until I know what has taken Matthew Cuthbert out of Avonlea today."

Accordingly after tea Mrs. Rachel set out; she had not far to go; the big, rambling, orchard-embowered house where the Cuthberts lived was a scant quarter of a mile up the road from Lynde's Hollow. To be sure, the long lane made it a good deal further. Matthew Cuthbert's father, as shy and silent as his son after him, had got a

Cudowna książka, dla każdej osoby, która ma w sobie trochę romantyzmu...

Wonderfull book, for all, who have any romantic inside
Lured by the rave reviews, I started reading this book. However, though I am on page 170 I still couldn't manage to like Anne. I seem to be the only one who thinks so but I must admit I even found her and the way she expresses herself irritating.
When I started reading Anne of Green Gables I instantly was attached to the story...Up to now I still can't get enough of reading and watching the film and I'm already 33years old. I hope my daughters will feel the same way I do when I introduce the book to them.
I really love Anne of Green Gables. It always makes me feel always young, happy and increases my imagination as I read and follow her life. Sometimes I feel that I'm also one of the characters in the story. Ah! Its really hard to explain...thanks so much Ms. Lucy Montgomery for creating such a good, humorous,imaginative character of Anne.
It is a wonderful book and I think it should be in our school lessons. School would be so interesting then.I can read it a hundred times.I wonder why it is not known among my mates . I think this is the best book I ever read .There is some special charm in this book which can not be told in words.I wonder what makes people rate other books as excellent .In all it is more than exellent.And I can conclude that this book is the best ever without considering others
I t is not fair to categorize this under children\'s book
It is certainly for all ages. Sometimes I just cant help thinking of Anne Shirley .Such a darling character she is.
I had an imagination as goo as her but I wasn\'t such a darling child like her. I have read it for about 30 times and I know I will never be bored of reading the book.
A beautiful book. though it is catogorized under young readers I feel it is for everyone. O what amazing and wonderful lines. I laughed when Anne laughed and I cried When Anne cried. It is so real to praise it as a wonderful imagination. god am i relieved after reading it Because my character doesnt seem so strange after knowing my dear Anne...
