Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery

Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery
(#41 on The Big Read. My combined score: 30)

First published in Canada in 1908.


I guess I was confusing this book with Anna  Karenina or something because I thought the book was going to be much weightier. I was not expecting a kids book or anything near this funny. 

Writing: 10
Characters: 10
Story: 10
Total: 30 out of 30

Overall: As close to a perfect book as I have ever read. Also one of the funniest, maybe only surpassed by The Hitchhiker’s Guide books. I loved everything about it. 

Recommendations: Everyone. Read it right now if you haven’t already. If you have, read it again.

Anne of Green Gables: (1934 starring Dawn O'Day, O.P. Heggie and Helen Westley)
8/10 Marilla and Anne are prefect and so much of the dialogue is taken straight from the page. It might be hard to track down this version but I recommend it.
