Publisher's Summary

This endearing, heartwarming book has charmed generations of children and parents since it was first published in 1908. A true literary classic, Anne of Green Gables has given the world the spunky, irrepressible little girl who Mark Twain hailed as "the most moving and delightful child of fiction since the immortal Alice." To date, more than 50 million copies of the books in the series have been sold. On Prince Edward Island, aging siblings Mathew and Marilla Cuthbert decide to adopt a boy to help with chores around the farm. But when Mathew arrives at the train platform, the only living creature in sight, legs dangling from the piles of shingles where she sits, is a freckled, green-eyed, redheaded little girl. Mathew senses immediately that life at Green Gables is going to be very different. And how right he is. The independent and fiery girl, Anne, changes the Cuthberts' lives immeasurably, and for the better.


Audible Editor Reviews

Narrator Barbara Caruso's engaging descriptions of Green Gables, a farm on Prince Edward Island, takes listeners there as they make the acquaintance of a special 11-year-old, Anne Shirley. Caruso also perfectly captures feisty Marilla Cuthbert and her shy brother, Matthew, who begins most of his sentences with a hesitant, old-fashioned "Well now . . ." Her best creation is Anne, who displays exuberance or the depths of despair, depending on the situation. The friends and neighbors Anne meets in her new home are realistic as they warm to her sweet nature. Listeners will enjoy meeting orphan Anne and her unlikely new family.

What about Barbara Caruso’s performance did you like?

The narrator's performance on this particular book is fantastic, I love it. (Though it may be nostalgia, as it's the version I had growing up.)
