Publisher's Summary

This is book three in the Anne of Green Gables series.

Anne is growing up and leaving the Island to spend four years at Redmond College. She meets a wonderful new friend in Philippa Gordon, offspring of an old and exclusive "bluenose" family. Phil's family ties, combined with her beauty and charm, open the gates of all the social cliques and clubs at Redmond. And where Phil went, Anne went. Thus, Anne found her social pathway at Redmond made very easy while other freshettes were doomed to remain on the fringe of things.

Good Voice, too much background noise!!

I looked at quite a few versions and settled on this one because I liked that the narrator had a young voice and did the characterazions quite well . However there is a lot of background noise which sounds like voices and page turning.

An old favorite decently performed

I've loved all of the "Anne" books since I was a teen 40 years ago. This was a decent narration. I admit I was a bit spoiled for the narrations of books 2 & 3 because my first Anne audible ( book 1, Green Gables)was read by Rachel McAdams and nobody else has QUITE measured up. Laurie Klein does a good job. Not quite enough variation between the different characters, which gets her a 4 instead of a 5, but it was still an enjoyable listen.

On to "Windy Poplars"! I admit to being addicted now!

Where's Anne?

I love Anne, and LM Montgomery has a way with words, but I don't like that this book is more focused on boys and love making. where's Anne?! These books are my favorite, but Anne changes from an awesome character, to someone who's only focused on boys. I wish that the narrator did not have as much background noise, because at some points you can hear the pages turning. I love LM Montgomery though, and her characters are timeless!!!!

Hooked on this series

I am hooked on this series (despite - or maybe because of - the fact it is very old fashioned), even though it can get a little monotonous at times. The first book was the best, but I do genuinely want to continuing following Anne's life as she gets older.
The reader for this particular volume, Laurie Klein, was a great improvement over the reader of the previous volume; however, I was actually quite unhappy with parts of the book itself. I'm a huge cat lover, and the author's obvious dislike of cats transferred to some of her prominent characters. I was very dismayed when one of them blithely stated that she was used to getting rid of unwanted kittens by putting a box over them and chloroforming them to death. Several of the women, including our heroine (whom you would think loves all creatures great and small), express indifference or actual dislike of cats, when most of my friends adore them and have them as pets. The characters redeem themselves somewhat in the book, but I was nevertheless disappointed with them at times. Anne also falls in love in this volume, and I found it hard to understand her goofy and unrealistic (I thought) behavior at times. Despite all of this, we have another happy ending and I will continue to follow Anne's adventures. On to the next volume!

A faithful take on a childhood classic

Old books can often simply feel dated. While this one isn't entirely exempt, it is also singularly charming and life affirming in a way that one rarely encounters anymore. Earnest and heart-warming without becoming saccharine.

A Trip Down Days Long Past

This book is full of flowery description that might be over-done for some. But I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is sweetly romantic and very sappy and satisfying.
I read this because I had never read it in my youth and so started the series out of curiosity. It intrigues me that Anne Shirley, the heroine, grew up in Canada and the Canadian way of life as it was is well depicted in the stories. I will definitely continue with the rest of the series and hope to be as entertained as I have been thus far.

A Long Time Coming

Good storyline and continuation but slow with the plot. I believe Anne could have had a more romantic heart and desire for her true love.

Lovely story.

Would give it 5 stars but too much happening just get to the story it is nice saying about things around her but just make the story too long
I do like story but need talk more about Anne life not all the things happening around her but like the people she meets along the way.
