Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

Anne of Green Gables

By L. M. Montgomery
Level 7
Review:

Matthew and Marilla requested an orphan boy, but they were mistakenly sent a girl. Not just any girl, but dramatic, redhead Anne Shirley. Matthew and Marilla end up falling in love with Anne and her free spirit in this old-fashioned, humorous, and wholesome classic. L. M. Montgomery is a master at descriptive writing with lines such as, “Its windows looked east and west, through the west one, looking out on the back yard, came a flood of mellow June sunlight, but the east one, whence you got a glimpse of the bloom white cherry-trees in the left orchard and nodding, slender birches down in the hollow by the brook, was greened over by a tangle of vines.” Many popular modern books today are all about fast-paced, thrilling plots. Books like Anne of Green Gables help us slow down and take time to experience and explore the beauty of nature and human relationships.
