Opinion

From Library Staff

The heartwarming story of Anne of Green Gables, the irrepressible "redhead", Anne, will never grow old! This Canadian classic was penned by Lucy Maud Montgomery and fortunately, is followed by many sequels.

A sweet, classic tale with a fiery heroine that I love and always will love. There is hardly any romance, but in the following instalments… Anne ❤️ Gilbert Blythe.
One age suitability note: technically anyone 6+ could read this, but probably only tweens and teens would find it interesting.

I simply love Anne of Green Gables, the whole story is amazing! The entire collection is for everyone to read, no matter your age. It is a classic!

Read this for my book club. We read an ELL edition. Loved Anne. We discussed Montgomery's life and how the book mirrored her own life. Also discussed her depression and death.
The same day as our meeting, the new Historica minute featuring Montgomery was released.

An extremely charming book for all! Definitely don't let the "Young Adult" classification steer you away. Nothing truly exciting ever happened in this book - I kept waiting for a BIG moment. And sure, there were some important milestones in Anne's life, but at the same time, the story was simple throughout. Nothing magical or out of the ordinary, and somehow, this is what made it so charming! Just a quirky orphan girl who is blessed with good caretakers, who allow her to flourish to her full potential. Anne reminds us all that it's okay to be different :-)

Wholesome, fun and witty. Reading Anne of Green Gables is like spending time with your mischievous, childhood best friend. I love that it is the first in a series because once you get to know Anne, you want to know about her future and share her life just like a real friend! I would recommend this book to girls of ALL ages!

This is a wonderful coming of age novel which truly bewitches the reader into wanting more. Anne begins the book as a young and curious girl who has more questions than answers. As she matures, she gains a new insights into her old and familiar world. I particularly enjoyed Anne and Gilbert's relationship; they began as enemies who helped each other become the best they can be without initially realizing it. I found "Anne of Green Gables" to be an engaging book, and I cannot wait to read more from L. M. Montgomery.

There's such a lot of different Annes in me. I sometimes think that is why I'm such a troublesome person. If I was just the one Anne it would be ever so much more comfortable, but then it wouldn't be half so interesting.
