Much of this segment of the series is composed of letters Anne writes to Gilbert. At first, I was turend off by this element as it was entirely different from the prior novels and because I feared the integrity of the series may not remain intact. My fears were completely unfounded. This is by far my favorite of all the novels. It's nice to be in Anne's perspective for much of the story. I enjoyed every second. Another delightful part of the Anne of Green Gables series.

We love Anne but interest among the Green Gables age group starts to fade and fizzle after AoGG. Windy Poplars is the last one that has a chance of holding that age group's interest. Even Rainbow Valley, following her children, lacks the charm of GG and young Anne. This nook edition is fine.

Why don't you ask astralgod. He sneered. Yes, attacking shecats is horrible, especially in this case where I was trying to get my kit back. *sarcasm*

Your sarcasm was unneeded, beacause you should never attch a she cat. Just like in real life and wemon. Unless that she cat is evil hearted which im not.

It is a good book though a little slow in the beginning. It does get better though, so stick with it. Chapter 4 is the first chapter that is not a letter to Gilbert, but don't skip the first three chapters because otherwise you will be very confused. I can't stand the Pringles (no, not the potato chip) as a whole although some of them sound OK. I really like Rebecca Dew though I don't know why. If you trust me at all then you will ignore everyone who said that this book is a disgrace and READ THIS BOOK! If you are a fan of Anne then bear with me through the first three chapters and stick with Anne through the whole series. Thank you.

L.M. Montgomery continues a fine story of Anne, the freckled red-haired orphan on the edge of womanhood, sustained by her romance with Gilbert. In this book, even more than ever, Anne shows her cheerful side and finds a way around the difficulties, bravely facing "another bend in the road" until she makes many new friends out of enemies.
I have found this book to be hard to put down. Anne's personality sparkled through every page - the kind, helpful and romantic Anne that always manages to see the best in people.
The book is full of great scenery and unforgettable characters. For me, Little Elizabeth and Rebecca Dew were the most enchanting. Little Elizabeth reminded me of Anne a lot with her appreciation for nature and beauty, her believing in the better Tomorrow. Rebecca Dew seemed like a tough "tomato" on the outside, but inside she was a "kindred spirit".
"Anne of Windy Poplars" is a true classic that is not to be forgotten with time.
"Anne of Windy Poplars" is a sequel to "Anne of Green Gables", "Anne of Avonlea" and "Anne of the Island". In "Anne's House of Dreams" and "Anne of Ingleside" admirers of Anne can follow her into her marriage with Gilbert.
When I read this book I wanted to go back in time, I think there life is so cool!!! All of the anne books are so good! I dont want the seiries to end!!!! My school librarian said that I would like this book and it was good for my book project, I thought I wouldn't like it so I didn't use it for my book project. Then I read it and it was a good book for a book project!!!!!

The Anne of Green Gables series is rare in that it is beautifully consistent. Anne changes throughout the series as she ages but she still stays "Anne with an e". She doesn't lose that special something that first attracts the reader to her and makes her the person that she is. In Anne of Windy Poplars we see Anne off to teach for three years away from Green Gables and away from Gilbert, her fiance. This is sort of a turning point in the series. This is the first book that Anne seems like an adult with not so much of the precocious child inside. This book divides the schoolgirl Anne in the previous books from the married woman of the books that follow.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

At first the beginning was really boring so I was thinking about stopping the book. But I kept reading and it became more interesting. Anne meets many new people and faces many adventures, such as babysitting a pair of naughty twins and organizing an elopement! This was a very enjoyable book and I recommend it to anyone who likes romance.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Anne of Windy Poplars is a very good publication. The whole book is written in letters from Anne Shirley to Gilbert Blyth. Anne Shirley is the main character of the story. She is very pretty with a beautiful face, red hair, and a beautiful body. She is also very smart and brave. Gilbert is Anne¿s boyfriend, I guess you could call him. The whole book though doesn¿t just talk about Gilbert, in fact the book never mentions him except the dear Gilbert parts. The Pringle families are the protagonists, or the bad guys. The Pringles hate Anne just because she is not a Pringle. Although the Pringles all hate Anne, she quickly becomes the towns hero and confidant. By the end of the story, not to give it away, she is very happy and liked by certain people. Anne loves to teach and that is why she moved to Windy Poplars to teach at a new school but moved in with some strange people, one of them is Rebecca Dew. Rebecca Dew is a nice young lady that gets pushed around by the two other house mates. Rebecca has to take care of the house and the house cat, Elizabeth. Rebecca hates Elizabeth because she gets so much attention and just because she hates cats. There are three units to this book labeled years 1, year 2, and year 3. There are 44 chapters throughout the book, 17 in the first year, 13 in the second year, and 14 in the third year. There are 259 pages in the whole book and is number four of the Anne of Green Gables Series and was written by L. M. Montgomery. It probably will take from two weeks to a month to read this book is you spend one or two hours a day reading it. I loved Anne of Windy Poplars and am sure that anyone will if they like sad, happy, angry, mysterious, humorous, and many other types of books. This is a great book and I think that the beginning, middle and end were all good. My favorite unit was year three because of the ending. I always like the endings of books. Anne Shirley really gives the book the wonderful feeling it has. Anne is the spirt of the book and I love to read about her and other characters. I advise you to read this book and the other Anne of Green Gables books.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
