Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Montgomery is the latest author to join Running Press's ongoing "Courage Classics'' series of budget hardcover reprints of classic works. Along with the full text, this edition includes excerpts from the author's journal. Also new in the line is Short Stories and Tall Tales by Mark Twain ( ISBN 1-56138-323-6 ), which offers pieces gleaned from Running Press's The Unabridged Mark Twain . At this bargain price, both titles are excellent choices.
From Barnes & Noble

    more from this reviewer

    Pleased

    When I downloaded this collection, I was quite pleased with the quality of the transfer into the epub format. However, a few things should be noted.

    1. This collection does not include Anne of Green Gables, Anne of Windy Poplars, or Anne of Ingleside. I'm not sure why they left out the first book in the series, but since it is easy to find a good free edition, I'm not complaining. The later two books--Windy Poplars & Ingleside--are both still in copyright as they were written significantly later than the other books in the series. That's why they're not available as ebooks yet.

    2. This edition does contain both Chronicles of Avonlea and Further Chronicles of Avonlea.

    3. It does have an active table of contents that allows you to move from book to book within the series, but you cannot jump from chapter to chapter within the books.

    Some may find these flaws annoying; if that is the case, I suggest that you download individual ebooks for each book in the series. Personally, I'm just happy to have the words in a clear and readable format, so I'll ignore the other problems.

    Incomplete

    I was so excited for the whole series, especially since I haven't read either of the Chronicles books. But it is missing Anne of Windy Poplars and Anne of Ingleside. Why leave out two books in the middle????

    Good, but not complete

    I enjoyed getting a clean copy of the Anne books all in one place. However, it is missing "Anne of Windy Poplars" and "Anne of Ingleside". It still is definitely worth far more than the remarkably small price I paid for it, though.

    Anne of green gables

    AMAZING! How a young girl named Anne comes to be adopted by the owners of green gables and how at first no one likes her but through out the story she comes to charm every soul she meets. With rough edges here there Anne learns how to behave .

    Anoymous

    Missing two essential books, Anne of Windy Poplars, and Anne of Ingleside. Crucial! However, it includes the two Chronicles of Avonlea, so you decide if it is worth it.

    For the love of anne

    I read anne of green gables every year. This version does not include every book so if you purchase you will need to buy a few of the others too. But its great that it has some of l.m. montgomerys other works too.

    That being said in this "nook book" there have been a few places where it seems to skip a part or a sentance is worded wrong so if you are not familiar with the story you may be confused. But these were few and far between. I love being able to have the wit and wisdom of anne at my fingertips.

    Very Detailed

    This collection is by far the best I've read. The writer is so detailed that I can imagine myself into the scenes. It is a very relaxing read and I have to say that I love picking up the Nook to read the story. It is a great excellent story line. It is definitely a must read!

    Revisiting an old friend

    I first "met" Anne when I was eight years old. Then, I devoured all of L. M. Montgomery's Anne-books, one after the other. 25 years later, my boyfriend was assigned to go to Prince Edward Island for work and I wanted to introduce him to the Island's most famous resident. This collection helped me do just that. A crash course in all things Anne Shirley, if you will.

    Anne, with her imagination, scrapes, tragedies and triumphs, has held up well, since the early 1900s when Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert realized, with horror, that the boy they'd planned for wasn't waiting for them at the train station. She's especially held up for me. 1980s me wasn't quite Anne's age when she first appeared in the books so I approached "Green Gables" and the stories that followed with as much imagination as the book's heroine. Love, college, first jobs, loss, and more were shared with me through Anne's eyes. Today, admittedly at a contemporary age with the Anne of a later volume, I've viewed many of the episodes she faced with a greater appreciation.

    This edition, while solid, is not perfect. Much has been made in previous reviews about the omission of "Anne of Windy Poplars" and "Anne of Ingleside". Those two books were not part of the intended series and written much later to fill in "missing moments." Perhaps that's why they are not included here, but as most people read Anne in age order, perhaps they should have been. In the "Chronicles" stories, some of author L. M. Montgomery's "uncharitable" political views are prominent. Just be aware and understanding that these may have been prevalent in the times these stories were written. Doesn't excuse, but to maintain the integrity of the author's work, it's okay for me that they were unedited.

    The trip back to P. E. I. was a welcome one for me. Anne may be a favorite amongst the little girls, but the older girls can gain much from her as well.
