Anne of Green Gables
Anne of Green Gables | L M Montgomery
Anne is described as bright and quick, eager to please, talkative, and extremely imaginative. She has a pale face with freckles and usually braids her red hair. When asked her name, Anne asks Marilla to call her Cordelia, which Marilla refuses; Anne then insists that if she is to be called Anne, it must be spelled with an e, as that spelling is "so much more distinguished." Marilla at first says the girl must return to the orphanage, but after a few days she decides to let her stay. Marilla feels that she could be a good influence on the girl and had also overheard that another disagreeable woman in town might take Anne in instead. As a child of imagination, Anne takes much joy in life and adapts quickly, thriving in the close-knit farming village. Her talkativeness initially drives the prim, duty-driven Marilla to distraction, although Matthew falls for her charm immediately. Anne says that they are "kindred spirits." The book recounts Anne's adventures in making a home: the country school where she quickly excels in her studies; her friendship with Diana Barry (her best or "bosom friend" as Anne fondly calls her); her budding literary ambitions; and her rivalry with classmate Gilbert Blythe, who teases her about her red hair. For that he earns her instant hatred, although he apologizes many times. As time passes, Anne realizes she no longer hates Gilbert but cannot bring herself to admit it. However, by the end of the book they become friends. The book also follows Anne's adventures in quiet, old-fashioned Avonlea. Episodes include her play time with friends (Diana, Jane Andrews and Ruby Gillis), her run-ins with the unpleasant Pye sisters (Gertie and Josie), and domestic mishaps such as dyeing her hair green (while intending to dye it black) or accidentally getting Diana drunk (by giving her what she thinks is raspberry cordial but is currant wine).

While searching for a book in my home library to complete the #booked2022 prompt for #setinacanadianprovince, I was giving up hope,until I realized that this book would work! The story of Anne warmed my heart and soothed my soul. I read this as a young girl after my mother gave it to me for Christmas. Reading it again,I realized that she must have chosen it, not only for the wonderful story, but also because of the character, DIana. #kindredspirit

2022 edit - What is there really to add? It's a book that retains its magic read after read. 5 stars

>>>
Brother and sister, Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, decide to adopt a boy to help on the farm. The message gets muddled and they end up with a daydreaming, intelligent red-headed whirlwind named Anne. 5🌟

I also love the TV adaptation with Megan Follows as Anne - I may even admit to a girlhood crush on Gilbert Blythe.

Sparklemn I love that description of Anne. 🙂 5mo

For this reread, I listened to an audio version. The CBC mini-series from the mid-80s with Megan Follows is one of my all-time favourite movies. Because of that, I was unable to picture anything else but the characters in that movie. But that‘s ok by me. The book had a few additional happenings that they didn‘t put in the movie and the movie expanded on some of the happenings in the book. I don‘t know how anyone could not help but love Anne.

I found this fascinating—an article on why Anne of Green Gables was banned in Soviet-controlled Poland: https://www.transpositions.co.uk/banning-anne-why-the-soviets-were-afraid-of-ann...

I love the idea that Anne inspired hope and resistance against an authoritarian regime. 👩🏻‍🦰💚 A couple of quotes in the comments! ⤵️ #KindredSpiritsBuddyRead

BarbaraJean “If you were compiling a list of novels banned for being dangerous and encouraging dissent, Lucy Maud Montgomery‘s charming children‘s classic Anne of Green Gables might not seem an obvious choice. Yet for several years during the Soviet control of Poland, Montgomery‘s novel was banned as a ‘subversive‘ book that was feared by the authoritarian regime because it was seen as inspiring hope and resistance to authority.” 7mo
BarbaraJean “…the authorities banned the book when they realised its importance to the Polish resistance effort. But copies produced by the dissident samizdat press continued to circulate. By drawing on the collective resource of individually memorised passages and preserved pages, the defiant samizdat movement was able to continue to distribute illegal copies of the cherished book.” Reminds me of Fahrenheit 451! 7mo

But I couldn‘t think of a better series of books to read when times are tough and you need a distraction, and the best way I can describe it is reading these books is like wrapping yourself in a warm blanket in front of the fire with steaming hot chocolate (if you like that sort of thing). It makes you feel cozy and safe. So glad we‘re reading all of her books now! I needed it. ❤️ 6mo

The story of Anne, an orphan and girl with a big imagination.

I liked and didn‘t like this book, I liked the story but the main character is really quite annoying in my opinion. She doesn‘t stop taking, overreacts to minor slights, and is very vain. As time went on, these things lessened but I already was annoyed with her by the end of the book.

StayCurious Haha ouch. I guess Anne is not everyone‘s cup of raspberry cordial 😊 10mo

Kathleen Kelly‘s mom advised to read this with a box of Kleenex. Which I never understood until my reread of this as an adult. I cried. I cried quite a bit actually. Part nostalgia and part realizing Anne‘s predicament as a neglected orphan, escaping along with Anne in her imaginations. And then falling in love with Montgomery‘s gorgeous writing all over again. It‘s definitely one of my #bestof2021 📚

Bk4 of today‘s #BookMail is another Seasons Editions-Fall, this time a highly regarded middle grade book. I think nearly every Litten would probably have read this at some point during their reading life? It‘s a story about family and love but it‘s mostly about hope I think. And doesn‘t the world love it! I was just on GR to add this to my shelves, there‘s almost 1,100 editions in many different languages😲

She declined a picture, but kiddo is reading the tagged for school this week. She waited to start it and now she only has tomorrow and part of Saturday to finish (I assigned it; I‘d totally give her until Sunday but won‘t tell her that yet because we‘re learning self-discipline for long-range assignments). Now she says it‘s a race, so she turned down our HP read-aloud to keep reading Anne with her bedtime snack and tea! 😍

“I do NOT like patchwork,” said Anne dolefully, hunting out her workbasket and sitting down before a little heap of red and white diamonds with a sigh. “I think some kinds of sewing would be nice; but there's no scope for imagination in patchwork. It's just one little seam after another and you never seem to be getting anywhere.” #sewing #QuotsySep21

“...it seems as if I must be in a dream. Do you know, my arm must be black and blue from the elbow up, for I've pinched myself so many times today. Every little while a horrible sickening feeling would come over me and I'd be so afraid it was all a dream. Then I'd #pinch myself to see if it was real—until suddenly I remembered that even supposing it was only a dream I'd better go on dreaming as long as I could; so I stopped pinching.” #QuotsySep21

Listening to Rachel McAdams narrating this novel was such a treat! She was able to bring so much life and character to the story that I‘m not sure I would‘ve gotten if I had read it myself. Now I need to watch the Netflix show and read the graphic novel and get a nice hard bound set of all the books.

My first time reading this with my ears as an #audiobook. Barbara Caruso was a very good narrator, although sometimes a bit too elderly sounding when she's doing young people's voices. The story, of course, is an all-time favourite. I still cry every time when Matthew dies. I think I'll try the next one in the series on audio too.

🎧📖 Shy Matthew & Grumpy Marilla (brother & sister) mean to adopt a boy to help on their farm but Matthew comes home with a red-haired 11yo girl named Anne.

Anne speaks her mind, gets in trouble, learns/teaches lessons & daydreams her days away with her wild imagination. Wholesome. Dated.

This story was completely new to me. I went in blind. I enjoyed the story but not the audiobook. Ended up with the kindle.

Loved the characters.

⭐️⭐️⭐️2/3

Scochrane26 This was my fave series for awhile when I was pre-teen. My copies are well-worn. 1y
Twainy @Scochrane26 I enjoyed it. It produced a variety of feelings. Anne was a bit overboard but I totally understand where the author was coming from and that it was written for someone a lot younger than me. LOL it was on a list of 28 must read books that someone here shared recently. 1y

Her resentment, which to other and older people might be as laughable as its cause, was in no whit allayed and softened by time seemingly. She hated Gilbert Blythe! She would never forgive him!

“Anne Shirley, what have you done to your hair? Why, it's GREEN!”
Green it might be called, if it were any earthly color—a queer, dull, bronzy green, with streaks here and there of the original red to heighten the ghastly effect. Never in all her life had Marilla seen anything so grotesque as Anne's hair at that moment.
“Yes, it's green . . . I thought nothing could be as bad as red hair. But now I know it's ten times worse to have green hair.”
