Seriously the worst, do not bother.

I love Anne of Green Gables, and have returned to listen to the whole series. I had purchased this volume of all the books to try and get all books in one hit rather than buying separately but strongly advise you not to waste your time. The author in this series is so inconsistent with characters, and a complete bore to listen to. Then each book is out of sequence and do not flow on one to the next. Very disappointing. Returning this promptly.

Narrator was good until I heard Anne speak...

No reviews but I thought I’d give it a chance.. the narrator does an excellent job at adult voices.. but she made Anne (who is supposed to be an exceptionally well spoken, intelligent child), sound like a complete ditz.. it is great value, but she did an awful job at capturing Anne’s character.

A Little Disappointed

I was a little disappointed to discover that two of the books from this series are missing. Where are Anne of Windy Willows and Anne of Ingleside? The narration is also somewhat stilted and the characterisation a bit off. Thankfully I love the story so much that listening has been ok. I’m just disappointed that I’ll need to stop listening while I re-read Anne of Ingleside before continuing in to Rainbow Valley.

this product is not as advertised.

I bought a 'complete' set of the Anne books only to discover it's missing two entire books. Anne of windy poplars and Anne of ingleside. completely bizare. the narration is fine, although Anne should positively shrewish at times, and some of the women like Stella have a weird growl for a voice. AOGG was the best.

Great collection 6 of 8 Anne Books

Book #4 Anne of Windy Poplars (between Anne of the Island and Anne's House of Dreams) and Book #6 Anne of Ingalside (between Anne's House of Dreams and Rainbow Valley) are not included in this collection, but this is a very good collection nonetheless.

Part Guide

Just as a warning, each book has a different Narrator. Some take a bit to get used to. So, if you're very picky about narrators I recommend a different title. Part 1: Anne Of Green Gables Chapters 1-28 Part 2: Anne Of Green Gables Chapters 29-38 Anne Of Avonlea Chapters 39-55 Part 3: Anne of Avonlea Chapters 56-68 Anne Of The Island Chapters 69-82 Part 4: Annes Of The Island Chapters 83-109 Annes House Of Dreams Chapters 110-115 Part 5: Annes House Of Dreams Chapters 115-141 Part 6: Annes House Of Dreams chapters 142-149 Rainbow Valley Chapters 150-168 Part 7: Rainbow Valley Chapters 169-184 Rilla Of Ingleside Chapters 185-198 Part 8: Rilla of Ingleside Chapters 199-219 Chronicles Of Avonlea Chapter 220-225 Part 9: Chronicles Of Avonlea Chapters 221-231 Further Chronicles Of Avonlea Chapters 232-247

Great story, good narrator, audiobook format is c

I love this story so much. And the furst narrator is engaging! The second narrator has a sweet voice but I much prefer the first. my big problem with the audiobook is that none of the chapters are labeled, book is broken into six parts for download purposes but not labeled. It's very difficult to tell which book I'm on, and Which chapter I'm in in that book. Twice, in the audiobook, the story shifts of abruptly and I I've tried to see if the book was changing or what caused the change. I've tried to rewind and relisten to make sure I didn't miss something. it would have been much easier had there been any indication of where in the story I was

Missing major parts of the story!

Missing Anne of Windy Poplars, Anne of Ingleside, Rilla of Ingleside and worst of all, it cuts from the middle of Rainbow Valley to the Avonlea Chronicles without even acknowledging the mistake.

Most disappointing book read ever

The books are out of order, it's missing books, and it does not have a consistent reader. Pick one and stick with it and for Petes sake put the books in order and include them ALL!!

Where is,”Anne of Ingleside”?

People who buy this book and are expecting to get all the books, find out that this book is missing, “Anne of Ingleside.” That’s the only bad thing. So if you get this series, buy, “Anne of Ingleside” too.

Wonderful! What a treat!

What a treat to find this on Audible! It’s a bargain to get 73 hours for 1 credit! The narrator does a great job. The story is inspiring - how a lonely orphan finds beauty, love, and belonging in a harsh world. I loved it at age six and I love it again at age 60. Highly recommended!

WORTH THE WAIT

To a reader nothing beats finding out the as the author originally meant it to be told. While this collection only has 6 of the 8 books. you can now read the whole with audible. I could not recommend it more. The ability to imagine is a precious gift for those of all ages. These books slow it to flourish. I think the books should be read in order. Books 4 and 6 need to be purchased separately. The narrations are well done and clear. I could not recommend this series more highly enjoy it I did

Missing two of the "Anne" books

This set is missing "Anne of Windy Poplars" and "Anne of Ingleside". The narrator of the first few books is TERRIBLE, painful to listen to. I would rather have bought the books separately with a decent narrator.

Not loving the narrator.

I purchased this to continue reading about Anne after reading the first book, narrated by Mary Sarah. Sorry to say that it is a huge disappointment to me after listening to the other narrator. Mary Sarah was awesome; this narrator, unfortunately, does not appeal to me at all. The story, itself, is enchanting! and I loved it and want more!

Breakdown of the Books

I was a bit confused as the ‘layout’ of this audiobook. It is a continuous reading of 8 books, however the parts of the audiobook do not reflect the different books! For your own sanity and mine (& because we are in lockdown and I’ve nothing better to do), I have worked out the breakdown. Anne of Green Gables Part 1 Chapter 1 - Part 2 Chapter 38 Anne of Avonlea Part 2 Chapter 39 - Part 3 Chapter 68 Anne of the Island Part 3 Chapter 69 - Part 4 Chapter 109 Anne’s House of Dreams Part 4 Chapter 110 - Part 6 Chapter 149 Rainbow Valley Part 6 Chapter 150 - Part 7 Chapter 184 Rila of Ingleside Part 7 Chapter 185 - Part 8 Chapter 219 Chronicles of Avonlea Part 8 Chapter 220 - Part 9 Chapter 231 Further Chronicles of Avonlea Part 9 Chapter 232 - end Hope this helps! 😊

Mostly great but confusing omissions

I really enjoyed this- these were some of my favourite books growing up, and the lady who narrates book book one and 5 in particular was wonderful- very gentle and relaxing listen. However, for some reason, Anne of windy willows, and more importantly, Anne of Ingleside aren’t included. The latter is one of my favourites of the series and I’d love to know why they decided to omit them! It leaves such gaping blanks in the story..

The Anne of Green Gables Collection has been 73 hours and 19 minutes of living on Prince Edward Island well over 100 years ago!

I have loved in my 74 th. year revisiting the lovely Anne of Green Gables stories I enjoyed when I was young. I had already revisited Anne with my own children when they were young too. But buying this collection of all of Lucy Montgomery tales of the grown up Anne and her children, and even, the last book, Tales of Avonlea has been a renewed revelation of story telling. An especially great treat was Rilla' s story. Anne's youngest daughter. This book covers the four years of the first world war as lived on Prince Edward Island. The young men went away to the war and the women and older men left behind take you into their world of sorrows and joys, fears and frustrations of the daily life of those at home following every detail of the news of that great war player out over much of the world but far away from Canada. I learnt so much from this book. And it was so well written. Thankyou for this collection of books I have enjoyed it all so much

expected better

the biggest issue I had is that this audiobook (i. fact the recording of 6 books back-to-back) is divided by parts. it wouldn't be such a problem (and I would have even accepted the performance, which does not compare favourably to others available on Audible), given the price, if it wasn't for the fact that the parts are finishing randomly between the chapters of the books, not the end of the books themselves. if one were to listen from the whole beginning to the end then maybe that would not be a problem, but if they try to listen to particular book then finding where that may start can be very frustrating. very disappointing production. not sure I would like to go through this experience again.

Part 2 Narrator does an awful Anne!

The narrator of Part 1 (the Green Gables book), Susie Berneis, is fantastic, and beautifully understands the spirit of Anne as well as the other characters. But oh dear the narrator of Part 2 (the Avonlea book), Tara Ward, does an awful Anne! She doesn’t seem to understand Anne at all, and makes her sound like a superficial, flighty, silly female. I had to stop listening which was a great shame. Tara Ward does, however, do the elderly characters quite well..... but when you have a bad Anne, you can’t bear it.

Poorly organised

The chapters from all six books are jumbled into one extremely long play list, and the tracks are not labelled with which book they belong to, so it's very difficult to tell when one book starts and another finishes. The performance is good but not nearly as characterful as the Rachel McAdams recording of the first book.

Absolutely Hideous

This seems like such a great value! Except there’s two performers—one book finishes and another begins with a new performer. The first performer makes Anne sound like she’s always either teetering on the precipice of or deep into an anxiety attack—constant hysteria. Neither performer actually bothered to find out what Eastern Canadians sound like and the first performer randomly takes on a weird Yankee-esque accent (“Canada, America, they pretty much sound the same, right? No one will notice!”). The way this is organized will drive you nuts as it’s basically one long playlist, not broken up into individual parts for each book. Also random is the skipping of “Windy Poplars” and “Ingleside”—I mean, why go to the time, money and expense to produce this product, but skip two books? If you have zero Anne standards, you might not care about any of this. But honestly, just once I’d like to hear the books done by a top-tier performer.

Wholesome and inspiring

The author is really good at capturing children's spirit and the story is just heartwarming. By the end of it, I found myself more appreciative of the things around me, and that's a sign of a really good book (or in this case, series).

So enter the bride of chucky

So, after loving the Netflix adaptation and learning that the show was cancelled, I decided to listen to the original and entire saga. Firstly it is nothing like the Netflix adaptation, maybe few scenes are similar, the rest complete fiction in that regard. So I ventured intrepidly into the world of Prince Edward Island as originally imagined and detailed. The first two books were sweet enough they plod along with very little intrigue, but for background noise it’s ok. The first two narrators made good attempts to single out characters with voice variations, which keep it easy to follow. However.... enter book 3, the narrator who I am sure is a lovely person, sounds similar to the actress who plays the bride of Chucky. It is therefore difficult to imagine anything else whilst she tries and fails to capture characters and inflect variations to her voice to distinguish different characters. The highlight of this cloud though is hearing the Narrators phone ring in the background in one of the early chapters. This certainly helped deflect from her bride of Chucky voice and the “story” for quite some time and now I listen imagining a blond homicidal doll with a knife reading a very mundane book whilst ignoring calls from the outside world. Something I never thought I’d piece together with this long drawn out story. In conclusion I can say I have heard and am aware of the books and so can tick it of the books I should probably read in my lifetime. it is not a waste of my life but merely a time in which my imagination freely wandered away from the real and the fictional world being created For me. It has also taught me a lesson not to bother with these suggestions of “books to read before you die”, next time I figure I’ll live or die without having heard or read certain stories.
