It took me a while to finish this book. I didn't hate it... I just didn't love it. It was my least favorite of all the Anne books. Something about it was kind of lacking, but I'm not sure I could put my finger on it.

Things I did like about it: I enjoyed reading about Anne homemaking. I'm a homemaker myself, so it was fun to read about our heroine "feathering her nest" (decorating her home, gardening, and making things homey for her family). It was interesting reading about the once homely orphan becoming the perfect socialite, but I couldn't identify with that very well, and it was kind of sickening when everything was just so... PERFECT. However, after thinking it over-- isn't that one thing we love about L. M. Montgomery books? Reading about the perfectly charming houses and settings the stories take place in, places most of us will never be able to live in, yet can escape to in stories like the Anne books, Emily series, and other Montgomery tales?

I wish Gilbert appeared more in the book. It would have been nice to read about him interacting with the children.

The last two chapters were the best of the whole book. The descriptions of Anne during the dinner party were humorous, and Montgomery shows talent in writing about that episode. For once, things aren't so PERFECT for Anne. For those who have ever gone through a heartbreaking ordeal, these last chapters are more identifiable, and it was interesting to see how Anne handled it ("Well, at least I still have the children... I'll keep going for them..."). Fortunately, it doesn't last and the book ends on a happy note.

The book's worst fault is that it is too repetitive. Repetitive characters (deceitful friends), repetitive plots, repetitive scenes (Anne looking out her window at night quite often). Question: Why wasn't there ever a story about Shirley??

Would I ever recommend others read this book? Of course! No Anne fan can ever go through the series without reading this book. Just be perseverant.

    I almost cried in this book!

    I was so scared when anne almost died, what would the book do without her? I can't believe her children are almost grown up!!! I never want this series to end! it's an Educational as well as a independent read. It is an old book but it's the best classic I've ever read. After you start this series you'll never want to stop. It's a must read series!!!!

    never dull...

    Anne of Ingleside is book 6 in the Anne of Green Gables series. Anne and Gilbert have 6 children now and this book is mostly about them with their little trials and tribulations. I love this book with each of it's chapters a new adventure. Life with Anne is never dull.

    I LOVE IT!

    I love the Anne series. I can't believe I'm finally to the end of it. Though I don't think I want to read the ones about Rilla beacuse my favorite character, Anne, dies. And Gilbert even goes looking for another wife. I fell in love with all the old fashionness, sweetness, and tenderness of the book.Tears even came to my eyes when reading and thats something only Luisia May Alcott had achieved.

    simply love it!

    I have read all the books. I really can't say this is my favourite. I like the ones in which she and Gilbert were finally courting or married. I reccomend this title to anyone who likes adventurous, imaginative, romantic, and dramatic pieces
