Anne of Green Gables goes off to college. Another good story! ( )

Anne leaves her home and teaching job in Avonlea to pursue the college degree and scholarship she gave up to take care of Marilla. ( )

If you take out the random Valley Road segment, this book is almost as good as Anne of Green Gables. I kind of wish my college experience was a little more like Anne's (minus the cats, of course). The writing style is a bit archaic in places, but the book is full of lessons that are timeless. Plus, no matter how many times I read about it or watch it on TV, I never tire of watching Anne fall for Gilbert. It's pretty much the most wonderful thing ever. ( )

This might be the world's most frustrating story ever told.

At first it's so enticing. College! Phil Gordon! Intrigue! Romance! Drama!


Let's skip over six months for no apparent reason! Let's have a pages and pages long letter from Davy that make me wish he'd just been sent to a damn orphanage instead! Let's have a long and boring interlude where Anne goes somewhere, meets some people we don't care about, learns something she could easily have learned in Avonlea, and hears the phrase "jog along, black mare!" about seven million times more than was necessary! Let's limit the amount of screen time Gilbert gets for no reason other than to fill the pages with people who are not him and are supremely unfit substitutes for such! Let's give the reader time to wonder how Anne chooses suitor with such terrible first names! Let's include a few extra housemates for Anne that we never get to know because... LM MONTGOMERY WHAT WERE YOU SMOKING?!

I'm done. No more for me.

Third in the 'Anne' series, this book covers her years at college. Anecdotes and characters rather than plot, but enjoyable nonetheless. Very moving in places. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553213172, Mass Market Paperback)

New adventures lie ahead as Anne Shirley packs  her bags, waves good-bye to childhood, and heads for  Redmond College. With old friend Prissy Grant  waiting in the bustling city of Kingsport and  frivolous new pal Philippa Gordon at her side, Anne tucks  her memories of rural Avonlea away and discovers  life on her own terms, filled with  surprises...including a marriage proposal from the worst fellow  imaginable, the sale of her very first story, and a  tragedy that teaches her a painful lesson. But  tears turn to laughter when Anne and her friends move  into an old cottage and an ornery black cat steals  her heart. Little does Anne know that handsome  Gilbert Blythe wants to win her heart, too. Suddenly  Anne must decide if she's ready for love...
