Review: Anne of Green Gables

Posted on Updated on

Anne of Green Gables Book Review
3+ of 5 stars to Anne of Green Gables, the first book in a series by L.M. Montgomery, written in 1902. I read this book nearly 30 years ago and had to refresh my memory a little, before writing the review. I’d forgotten it was part of a whole series. I read more than one, but not sure which other ones. I recall this first one… a tale about an orphan girl, acclimating to a new family, meeting friends and neighbors. On the outskirts, it’s a coming-of-age tale about a young girl becoming a woman and learning about the realities of life. It’s both a funny book to read and an educational one with some lessons. It’s something every kid should read, just to understand how good they have it… or if they are adopted, to learn how to deal with it. Anne’s a beautiful person, forgetting age for a few seconds. And whenever she’s around, it sorta feels like the comforts of home. If you haven’t sampled it, read one of the books in the series just to see what life was like for a girl like her over a century ago. It’ll be a positive read, even so many years later.

    I saw they were making a new TV shows on Netflix for this book series! I actually never heard about it before seeing the trailer (show is called Anne with an E). Sounds like a classic series with great lessons!

    Ahh. One of my favorite childhood classics James! I gobbled this series up during the course of one summer when I was 9. I definitely found Anne to be a kindred spirit. If you decide to try Netflix’s Anne With An E, which basically covers the first 10 chapters, just keep in mind it’s much grittier and darker than the book. That said, except for a couple of issues, I really enjoyed it.😊

      I’ve been looking for a few new series on Netflix now that shows are ending normal seasons… need some fun for the summer. I’ll probably give it a chance. Thanks for the heads up!

    This is my all time favorite book from my childhood! I so loved Anne; we were so much alike with our shared love of books and fanciful imaginations! I just started watching Netflix’s “Anne with an E” series and so far I’ve enjoyed it! I’d recommend giving it a try 🙂

      Thanks for the share. And for the feedback on the Netflix show. Lashaan, one of my online friends, mentioned it, then a few others as well… sounds like something to take a chance on.
