Overview

Anne's children were almost grown up, except for pretty, high-spirited Rilla. No one could resist her bright hazel eyes and dazzling smile. Rilla, almost fifteen, can't think any further ahead than going to her first dance at the Four Winds lighthouse and getting her first kiss from handsome Kenneth Ford. But undreamed-of challenges await the irrepressible Rilla when the world of Ingleside becomes endangered by far-off war. Her brothers go off to fight, and Rilla brings home an orphaned newborn in a soup tureen. She is swept into a drama that tests her courage and leaves her changed forever.

The answer to ur question is that people during WW1 didnt have much technology, and that instead they did more productive things to EARN the things they got. Also, the IPad 5 was never invented back then. I would recommend that you investigated what Social Studies knowledge you have and pick up the books. You may be surprised at what you find! :)

So she doesnt have that stuff. Big deal!!!!! This is a beautiful and heroic story. Of course it takes someone who is smart and has a brain not to mention character. Grow up. Not everyone needs to have that stuff.

Rilla of Ingleside is the dramatic conclusion of the Anne of Green Gables series. It takes place during World War I and we see how the war affects the Blythe family in sometimes tragic ways. This book was very emotional at times and brought me near to tears on a couple of occasions. Rilla of Ingleside is a great ending to a great series, one I'll be sure to enjoy again sometime in the future.

The time setting of this book is during the nineteen twenties, during World War ll. Do you honestly think that they had ipads and all the other electronics that nearly every teenager has today in america? Not even I have any electronic devices except my nook and I most definetely do not have a pair of animal print skinny jeans. Sometimes I wonder if people like you are crazy. I mean honestly, do people really NEED wiis and iphones? I thought that this was a great book!

This is my favorite anne book because i can pretty much relate to everything rilla goes through. It is a perfectly beautiful work. Montgomery is famous for writing about simple beautiful things and here she uses her gift to write about something big and horrible and it is amazing. So much better than the junk us teens are expected to read nowadays!!!!!

I love this book!!! It's like the best one in the series!!! It is really good it shows her growing up and maturing it's also really sad at some parts and that makes it even better!! I've read and re-read this book like a million times!!! I love how she hates babies and then has to take care of one all by herself, but she eventually comes to love them. I think everyone should read this book it's atouching story about coming of age. I think it's the best book in the Anne Series. I love it!!!!!!!!!

I felt like I could really see the book through the eyes of the charecters. I could almost feel Walters hand it mine, Ken kissing me, Cousin sophia being a pessimisst in my kitchen, Wiskers on the moon proposing. (I love Susan)!!!!! It was well written and I think that this classic little war book is soooo great. Who needs technology or ipads or iphones or animal print leghings anyways?!?! Read this book. It is AMAZING!!!

SERIOUSLY!!!!!!You obviously have had absolutely no education at all.This is set in the time period of world war 1.Ipads and Iphones were made in the late 1900's and early 2000's.This is a classic.You are a person who has no reading comprehension at all and has never read the actual book. You are being completely stupid and illiterate in that you can't tell a masterpiece when you have one right in front of your dumb face. You are obviously too immature to read books and should have remained watching Dora the Explorer and Barney. GROW UP

Dear Author (or Authoress) of the most narrow minded, low iq review I have ever read: clearly you have no literary judgement or taste. All you want in a book is sex and violence. Of course you will not find either of those in a cleverly depicted historical fiction work such as Rilla of Ingleside!! Also, this is not a chat site. You are supposed to REVIEW AND RATE the books. Enough said, l will do so. The story begins charmingly, describing a mellow, laid back scene of the main characters. It then continues into a thrilling and YES romantic comedy of errors to quote Shakespeare. There are laughter and tears, smiles and sighs wrapped in the pages of this beautifustory. I highly reccommend this to any and all readers, although gentlemen may find it not quite suitablle to thier taste.

I ha read this book literally 5 times and am never tired of it. It is a very real story aout real characters and montgomery really gets into the heart of the war. I hve learned so many things from this book... to never give up hope, to persevere in times of trouble, and tha life will go on even if you think it cant. This book should be read by every teenage girl amd adult alike! There are also many little things, everyday things whih mae the book so captivatig and enjoyable. YOU NEED TO READ THIS!!!!! Love you montgomery!

My fascination with this book began with my crush on Ken Ford, but it quickly changed into something deeper. The beginning, starts out rather slow, I thought. I believe it picks up when Rilla (Anne's youngest daughter) finds a little war baby (I love that chapter!) And in this way, the books (through diary enteries, dialogue and action scenes) show how ww one made a mature woman of Anne's rather spoiled daughter. She becomes strog, a brick for her mother, a help to Susan, a sweetheart to Ken, and a mother for little Jims. The part where she wastes money on a hat and makes a bow to her mom. Seeing her first silent picture with her mom! I love it all! Sixteen times I've read this book and I think after writing this review I need to read it again!!

This book is such a great book. I love the way it wraps the series up. I highly reccomend the whole series. I have read many books and series, and without a doubt in my mind this is and will most likely always be the best series I've read. Imbelished with romance and topped with drama, I encourage you to buy this book.

This book is amazing. In the beginning Rilla is sort of self centered but she changes so much in the end. This book is a tearjerker in many ways.
