In recent years I have been trying to go back and read one of the juvenile classics that I either missed while growing up or do not remember reading. So it was the Anne of Green Gables came into my life. I found myself chuckling or simply laughing out loud at many points in the story, which is always a good thing. Like many, I suppose, I found Anne's inadvertent pretentiousness charming, but what I found most attractive was the way she affected the the adults around her with a joy in life they had forgotten or simply mislaid. The only real negative was the feeling that the novel was the assembly of various scenes, the transition between which was sometimes clumsy.

Anytime I read something I like where the author is new to me, I spend time learning about the author's life as well. Lucy Maud Montgomery led an accomplished and independent life, especially given the constraints of time and place. ( )

This book and subsequent series is the coming-of-age story of a young orphan, Anne, who is adopted by a brother and sister in rural Prince Edward Island, Canada. Anne is a mischievous daydreamer who frequently gets in trouble for her antics, but also for her intelligence and progressive ways of thinking.
As a young child, I identified with Anne's imagination and refusal to conform to society, and I appreciated that the novels gently invited me to the ways of life of rural turn-of-the-century Canada. ( )

Quando os irmãos Marilla e Matthew Cuthbert, de Green Gables, na Prince Edward Island, no Canadá, decidem adotar um órfão para ajudá-los nos trabalhos da fazenda, não estão preparados para o “erro” que mudará suas vidas: Anne Shirley, uma menina ruiva de 11 anos, acaba sendo enviada, por engano, pelo orfanato.

I don’t remember the last time a book made me cry. Anne of Green Gables has me sobbing like a hungry baby. This book has invoked every emotion in me and I only wish I had read it when I was younger. ( )

Lovely writing...syrupy sweet, but loved Anne as a pathetic orphan and as she grows into an intelligent and loyal young lady. Perfect literary gift for daughters and grand-daughters. ( )

Epigraph
The good stars met in your horoscope,
Made you of spirit and fire and dew.
- Browning
Dedication
To the memory of my Father and Mother
First words
Mrs. Rachel Lynde lived just where the Avonlea main road dipped down into a little hollow, fringed with alders and ladies' eardrops and traversed by a brook that had its source away back in the woods of the old Cuthbert place; it was reputed to be an intricate, headlong brook in its earlier course through those woods, with dark secrets of pool and cascade; but by the time it reached Lynde's Hollow it was a quiet well-conducted little stream, for not even a brook could run past Mrs. Rachel Lynde's door without due regard for decency and decorum; it probably was conscious that Mrs. Rachel was sitting at her window, keeping a sharp eye on everything that passed, from brooks and children up, and that if she noticed anything odd or out of place she would never rest until she had ferreted out the whys and wherefores thereof.
Quotations
"Marilla, isn't it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet? … Oh, don't you see, Marilla? There must be a limit to the mistakes one person can make, and when I get to the end of them, then I'll be through with them. That's a very comforting thought."
"There's such a lot of different Annes in me. I sometimes think that is why I'm such a troublesome person. If I was just the one Anne it would be ever so much more comfortable, but then it wouldn't be half so interesting."
Marilla felt more embarrassed than ever. She had intended to teach Anne the childish classic, "Now I lay me down to sleep". But she had, as I have told you, the glimmerings of a sense of humor – which is simply another name for a sense of the fitness of things.
"Oh, but it's good to be alive and to be going home," breathed Anne.
But if the path set before her feet was to be narrow, she knew that flowers of quiet happiness would bloom along it.

Book description
Inspiring, adventurous, and full of life, Anne (with an 'e') is adopted into the home of Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert. Although they had originally wanted a boy, they begin to fall in love with the red-headed spunky girl, despite her shenanigans. This is a story of the life of Anne Shirley; from experiencing life's highs when finding bosom friends, to being in the 'depths of despair' during its trials, Anne learns to love those around her while experiencing all life has to offer.
