Anne of Green Gables

Anne of Green Gables

Born in 1879 on Prince Edward Island, Canadian author L.M. Montgomery started off at a young age as a poet, moving into journalism and teaching.

In 1908 “Anne of Green Gables” became a great hit and the rest of the series proved quite popular.  Even though she published 20 novels and more than 500 short stories she unfortunately stopped writing due to mental illness and personal misfortunes.  Her work is carried on in television shows and movies.

A classic novel, Anne of Green Gables entrances and captivates with a charming little girl at its’ centre.

Longing to be loved, accepted and beautiful, her constant amusing chatter and inadvertent troublemaking endear her to her adopted family and eventually the people of Cavendish on Prince Edward Island.

A story that delights whether the reader is a child or an adult.

    The story is centered around Anne but let’s not forget the Cuthberts whose lives have been transformed by having this little girl in their lives. Each set in their own ways, they begin to experience what pure love really is, how to look at things differently and maybe even be a bit more optimistic. Anne is a child that makes a difference in someone’s life and when you read it, she can make you feel uplifted.

    I read the book as a young girl and what stood out was the wonderful descriptions of the house, Prince Edward Island, the beautiful scenery. They can all be vividly recalled even to this day. But even above all that was Anne herself, an unforgettable character, simple and pure that you can’t help but love.

    Whatever your age when you read this book, you can’t help but be irresistibly drawn in to Anne’s world. Her imagination prevails in this book – sometimes it can get her into trouble, other times it lets her escape and dream. Her innocence and simple way of looking at the world remind you of what growing up was like.

    Seeing the landscape through Anne’s eyes, devouring the colours, making up stories to go with the places – ah to be a child again. A great story to read in the last month of the year – to make you see through another perspective and time and leaves you feeling refreshed.

    You would think a constantly chattering child would get on your nerves after awhile but not so with Anne. The words that come out of her mouth, the way she is so engrossed in even the smallest thing only endears you to her more. I don’t know if it’s the way it’s written or just Anne herself but you can’t help but be drawn in just as the Cuthberts were.

    This novel brings me back to a world full of dreams and exploration. Having read it again as an adult, it has lost none of its allure. “Anne” is still delightful as ever and brightens up anyone’s day.
