This book is about Anne Shirley who was an orphan. She was mistakenly sent to Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert for adoption. They were actually expecting a young boy who can help out with Matthew's tasks in the farm. Anne shocked Matthew who came to the train station to fetch her with her endless talking. He did not have the heart to tell Anne about the mistake.
Best Book and Movie Reviews also believes that Green Gables is perhaps the most peaceful and beautiful places. Everybody knew everyone. It is a great place for kids to grow up in and for old people to stay in. It reminds me of my hometown, but that's another story.
After a lot of events, the two eventually fell in love with Anne. It is a story that is easy and fun to read especially when you come to the part about Anne's numerous mischief. You will read about the usual things that girls her age want and need but you will also be amused about her unconventional way of thinking.
This is a feel-good book and it would be great to read in between heavy readings. It is also a good book for kids who are in transition from short books to one with multiple chapters. The words are not that hard to understand and it is great practice for reading.
