Publisher's Summary

The free-spirited Anne Shirley has a beautiful way of looking at the world and touching our hearts. In this, the third volume of the Anne of Green Gables series, the irrepressible Anne dreams of the woman she hopes to be when she decides to leave Green Gables and her beloved Prince Edward Island for college. She is eager for new adventure. But now she faces difficult choices involving her secret aspirations to be a writer and her hopes of finding the right person to marry. Homesickness and a grumpy old math professor cause Anne to doubt she should be a Redmond College coed, even though her old friends Gilbert Blythe and Priscilla Grant are there to share the challenges and surprises. And when Anne is the recipient of unexpected marriage proposals from the most unlikely men, she may shock friends and Islanders alike with her decision.

Good and Bad

Great book! Awesome narrator!! Awful recording quality=( At times I could hear people talking and other sounds in the background of the recording.

Terrible recording & monotonous reader

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Loved the story but I couldn't get beyond the background noise in this recording and the dull monotonous reading by the narrator. It was really sub-standard.

Any additional comments?

Please get a good narrator like Shelly Frasier to do this audiobook. Her rendition of Book 1 in the series was just superb - the colourful vocal inflections and emotions portrayed in that reading made listening to that audiobook a real joy.

happy fluff

If your life brims with stress and harsh reality, this series will let you slip back to a slower time, filled with rich description and tradition.

An excellent story but audio had an echo

I adore all the Anne books and this is no different. my only issue is that the audio had some background echo. I thought it was my device at first but it was not. It became very distracting at times.
otherwise the reading by Susan O'Malley was very good. She does not overdo characters but gives them enough change to bring them to life. I quite enjoyed her reading.

Anne of the Island (included in membership book)

This book is excellent but the recording has other people talking in the background. Very poor recording quality

Great story but…

The narration was pleasant however some of the voices weren’t appropriate. Also there is background noise as if the narration was done with people or another audio running in the background. It really ruins the experience.

Good story

The audio recording of this book was very poor. Lots of background noise. The story was good. The narrator was okay. Sometimes hard to tell who was speaking. Overall worth the listen.

Voice in the background

When I listened to this recording at a high volume while cooking I heard another reading happening in the background. It was distracting. The first seconds in Chapter 2 it’s quite obvious.

If you like cats you will be disappointed in Anne.

This was just okay...Until they killed a poor old cat!!!
I couldn't read anymore. Ann of Green Gables is not my favorite story anymore.
wish I had not read this.

Well on narrated with a good story.

Susan O’Malley narrates this story well. In my opinion no other LM Montgomery book could be as good as Anne of Green Gables, but still a thoroughly good read.

What a shame a robot delivers the story

A lovely and heartwarming tale which really doesn’t age. Narration is a huge let down

The narration

The narration of this novel is much much better than the previous text. I wish Rachel McAdams had done all the novels

Revisiting an old favourite

I have just finished listening to the first 4 Anne books after reading them many times when I was younger. I found the performance of this book fairly good, though the narrator pronounced the name Phillippa in a strange way which grated! Largely I enjoyed this read.

adore!!

This is the best of the Anne stories! I adore it. The performance was great and accents/voices were done well.
