I started reading Anne of Green Gables because of High School Entrance Exam. I thought Anne of Green Gables was going to be a dreadfully boring book that talks in confusing Old English. I was wrong. Anne of Green Gables is a wonderful series that I now enjoy reading. Anne is highly amusing to read about. Anne is the stereotype redhead though. She has a temper to match with her hair, but she’s also very imaginative and comes from a interesting background. She’s a orphan ever since she was a baby when both of her parents die. She was raising by a neighbor with three sets of twins and two more children. Anne in return was forced to help raise and take care of these children. Mrs. Thomas can’t take care of her anymore so she is sent to an aslyum, which is an orphanage in the old days. Anne finally accidentally lands in the loving hands of Marilla and Matthew. The Anne series is about Anne growing up, meeting kindred souls, and falling in love. This is a great book and so great that there are television shows about the series and movies.
My rating: ***** out of 5
Comments: Most enjoyable old book I’ve read yet.
