Lively and enthusiastic Anne Shirley couldn’t wait to experiences the many adventures she will have at Green Gables. The Cuthberts were very surprised to have made her acquaintance as they wanted to adopt a boy to help out at the farm. Who knew that a mix-up such as this could change their lives forever?
I might be a little biased as I’ve already seen the TV series starring Megan Follows as Anne Shirley and I’ve adored the quirkiness and enthusiasm of the show. The cast really brought these characters to life for me so I was looking very forward to reading the classic. I will admit that I did have a hard time getting into it and the same had went with the others in our local Book Club. I love the idea of reading classics. They’ve been around for so long and have had such an impact to literature today. The writing was just different for me and I had to get used to it more and more as I kept reading. One girl at the meeting had mentioned how it would be such a cool idea if someone would create a modernized version of Anne of Green Gables. We felt like it would probably do really well as there are so many aspects that you could relate to in this story. Though the writing was difficult, I did love the story and its linear writing style. There were so many quotes that I would love to write down to read again later. It’s just overall such an uplifting story.
We give this beautiful classic 3.5 out of 5 feathers!
