Publisher's Summary

L.M. Montgomery's novel introduces the world to the lovable and energetic Anne, who at the beginning of the audiobook is adopted by the Cuthbert siblings, Matthew and Marilla. The brother and sister realize that they are getting up in their years, and intend to adopt a young boy to help Matthew maintain the property. Through a mix up, however, they get Anne instead. Rather than sending her back to the orphanage, the siblings decide to keep her, and though she makes a few mistakes at the start of her stay, they come to realize how invaluable she is to their lives.

Anne, who is 11 at the time of her adoption, has never had much training in the way of social graces. There are quite a few events that take place in which the Cuthbert siblings hide their head in shame over something that Anne has said or done, but after Anne saves the life of a young girl who is very sick, the entire town comes to love her for who she really is.

Eventually, Anne grows into a mature teen and spends the majority of her time devoting herself to academics, which pays off when she is awarded a scholarship to a prestigious four-year college. A series of unfortunate events, however, force her to rethink her future plans; but Anne does not distress. Instead, she makes the most of her situation and displays a positive attitude about it all.

I loved hearing this story again!

This was as enjoyable for me this time as reading the books and watching the movies when I was a kid! Only I didn't care for the narrator, it sounded like a robot was reading to me.

good story

the story is excellent, but the narrator is awful. I lost track of how many mispronounciations there were.

Great story, not so great narrator

I've always loved this story, but the narrator is so strange, she speaks like a robot most of the time... But when she does Ann's voice it's quite nice... I can't understand why that is.

I love Anne of Green Gables, but don’t get this version

For some reason all of the (Canadian) characters in this sound very British. And often squeaky. I’d recommend a different version.

Couldn't get past the first chapter

The worst narrator I have listened to. I could not get past the first chapter.

Characters come to life!

My mom and I have fallen in love with Anne's character! The narration in a different dialect brings the characters to life.

Loved story, couldn't stand narration.

Beautiful story but it was extremely hard to listen to. The narrator was too quiet when doing certain characters and very loud and shrill on other characters. I finally resorted to keeping my hand on the volume button to make frequent adjustments just to get through the book.

LOVE the book, HATE the narrator

What didn’t you like about Andrea Giordani’s performance?

Narration is terrible. Impossible to listen to. This is one of my favorite stories and I couldn't deal with this narrator at all. Didn't even make it through the first chapter

Do not waste money on this version

The narration most reminds me of the clipped electronic voice from a GPS. Extremely hard to understand and follow the story.

I love this book, just not this narrator!

Anne of Green Gables has been one of my favorites since I was a girl so when I saw it available on sale I thought, "Why not?" Well, the problem is this narrator. The characters are Canadian, why do they all have English accents? But worse than that is her narration. She sounds like Siri or a computer that is reading out loud. It's very offputting. It does not sound like English is her first language but honestly, I don't think that's the problem. She is just very robotic. Perhaps she gets better but I was only able to get to the part where Matthew reaches the train station. I stopped before I got her version of Anne in my head. I'll be returning this version and listening to the other narrators before I choose a different edition.
