Anne of Green Gables is a novel by Lucy Maud Montgomery. It is titled Anne of Green Gables because it follows the adventures of a mischievous girl, Anne Shirley, who lives in Green Gables. The story takes place in the 1890's and follows Anne through several years of her life. Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert had decided to adopt a boy to help on the farm. Instead the orphanage sent a talkative and troublesome girl. They were going to send her back, but quickly came to love Anne and decided to adopt her. The major conflict of the story is Marilla's trouble raising Anne, the protagonist. The rising action involves Anne's imagination, which always provokes her to do foolish things. In addition, Gilbert Blythe (the antagonist) provokes Anne. There never is a true turning point in the book. Anne promises to behave after each incident, but once again finds trouble. The resolution is made when Matthew, her adopted father, dies. Anne promises Matthew she'll behave just before he passes away. The characters and the plot in the book were very well developed and believable. The writing in Anne of Green Gables was vividly descriptive. Anne always liked to imagine things, and often times the book would describe in detail what she dreamed of. The dialogue used was 3rd person. One of my favorite passages was, "Pretty? Oh pretty doesn't seem to be the right word. Nor beautiful, either. They don't go far enough. Oh, it was wonderful- wonderful. It is the first thing I saw that couldn't be improved by imagination." The theme of Anne of Green Gables would be imagination can make the rainiest days bright. The author is trying to say that imagination can lift you through troubled times. I really liked the book Anne of Green Gables. It was very entertaining and I would suggest it to all.

Anne of Green Gables: Book Review "I'll try and do anything and be anything you want, if you'll only keep me." Anne said. "Well," said Marilla. "I suppose I might as well tell you. Matthew and I have decided to keep you-that is if you will try to be a good little girl and show yourself grateful. Why, child, whatever is the matter?" " I'm crying," said Anne. "I can't think why. I'm glad as can be. I'm so happy. But can you tell me why I'm crying?" Anne Shirley is not an ordinary child. She is a little orphan girl who always talks and tries to make everything exciting. She is imaginative and has lots of ambitions even as a little girl. Anne has an atrocious and frightening life until she mistakenly comes to the Cuthberts' house. The Cuthberts are looking for a boy for help in their daily chores, due to becoming old, but when they meet the interesting Anne, the Cuthberts can't resist adopting her. Anne gets so excited and thanks the Cuthberts for their kindness to her. Ms. Cuthbert wants Anne to be a smart and humble old-fashioned girl while the quiet Mr. Cuthbert only wants to make Anne happy. This story tells about Anne's adventurous life as she adapts to her new environment, including making friends and going to school. Anne also struggles to fit in with all of the older, prettier girls in her surroundings. Beside a few weak and boring parts, this story is fun, exciting, and suspenseful, and it is thrilling to watch Anne as she grows up and tries to make the best of herself. I would recommend this lovable young adult novel to all those people who have ever wondered how it feels to be an orphan.

Anne of Green Gables is a story about a little girl with a HUGE imagination. The language used makes the book sound like it should be worth a million dollars. The richness of the classical literature will leave you breathless and wanting to frame this book for all to see. On a personal note, this book is at the top of my favorites list; in fact, I love it so much that I have multiple copies! Call me crazy, but this book is a treasured gem in the world of children's classics. Every child should read this book because it will enrich their childhood and fill them with an avid appreciation for poetry, literatue, and life. Overall, a great read! Life-changing!

I've begun re-reading the Anne of Green Gables series. I've just finished the first book and enjoyed it just as much, if not more, as I did when I was twelve!

When Marilla and Mathew Cuthbert, an aging brother and sister, send away for an orphan boy to help out on the farm they are sent a little girl instead by mistake. They decide to keep Anne and it's the best decision of their lives. They fall in love with the little freckle faced redhead as does everyone around her. You can't help but love her dramatic imagination and mischievous ways. She comes to the Cuthbert house of Green Gables as an eleven year old and at the end of the book she's nearly an adult at the age of sixteen. The years she spends at Green Gables and the town of Avonlea are filled with amusing adventures and misshapes usually brought about by Anne's overactive imagination. The story takes place on Canada's Prince Edward Island and the island comes to life beautifully through the eyes of Anne. This charming story is perfect for all ages and one to be enjoyed over and over.

This book was by far one of the best that I have ever read. I simply love the fact that the author expressed Anne's feelings and dialoge with such vivid details. As I read how Anne adjusted to everyday life at Green Gables, I saw everything as clearly as a movie. The author- L.M. Montggomer did an awesome job!

Ann of the Green Gables was an amazing book. It is about a girl named Anne who came to the Green Gables and started a life with Marilla and Matthew when they adopted her. Then she grows up with them and her best friend and on the way have fun times, sad times, and even some misunderstanding times. I recommend this book to someone who wants to read a good classic book and a few laughs from time to time. There were a lot of fun times in Ann of the Green Gables. Like there was a part where Ann and Diana decide on being Blossom Friends, which kind of means BFFs. There was also when Ann and her friends act out a play near the river. Then there was when Ann and Diana go see a concert in the city. Overall, this book was probably almost all filled with fun things happening. There was also alot of sad times in Ann of the Green Gables too. Like when Marilla almost didn¿t let Ann stay at the Green Gables. And there was also when Diana¿s mom would not let her play with Ann for a long time and when Ann woulds not go out of her room because of that. Even though there was alot of fun things, there was still alot of sad times in the book. There might have been mostly sad and fun times in Ann of the Green Gables but there was a few times where things were a little misunderstanding. Like when Diana¿s mom thought that Ann made Diana drunk when it was only a mistake. And there was when Ann bought hair dye from an Italian and it made her hair turn green and then Marilla made her shave her head. There weren¿t many parts like that but they were the funniest parts to read. Overall this book is a great classic and I certainly had fun reading it. I would recommend it to someone who loves to read good, funny classic books.

The book Anne of Green Gables is an adventurous fiction about a girl named Anne, and her going to live in a new home. Anne meets many new and interesting people, and does many crazy things.  The story takes place on Prince Edward Island in Avonlea. It is about Anne living  in Green Gables with Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert and her growing up and making decisions in life.  This story was all in all a good book. In some parts, however, there would be conversations that would go on and on and on!!! The book also had a number of big words in it. The author did a good job of writing this book because there were happy parts, sad parts, and funny parts.  I would recommend this book to you if you are at least ten years of age because of all the big words and some parts that you have to  break down and really think about.  One of the books strengths was that it had a lot of detail. While reading you can clearly picture the setting.  Therefore, I definitely advise you read the book Anne of Green Gables. It is a funny yet serious novel about the life of a girl, and if you read it i am sure you will like it as much as I did! :)  -Ducky
