Summary

If you've read and loved Anne of Green Gables you will surely be delighted to follow Anne's further adventures in Anne of Avonlea. In this sequel, we find Anne Shirley teaching in Avonlea School though she continues her studies at home with Gilbert Blythe. Lucy Maud Montgomery first published the best selling Anne of Green Gables in 1908. Enthused by the amazing success of this account of a young orphan girl who arrives by mistake on Prince Edward Island, Canada, the author followed it up with five more sequels, tracing Anne's career and life. Three other books and a couple of collections also feature Anne, her family, children and friends. The series has remained one of the firm favorites of children and older readers. Anne of Avonlea was published in 1909, immediately after the first book. It contains several of the characters present in the previous book, so readers get a feeling of comfortable continuity as they follow Anne in her new role as a student teacher. She is now officially a grownup person and part of the adult society of Avonlea village and soon plunges into a series of situations in which dismay and delight have equal share. The book has a blend of old and new characters. Her best friend, Diana Barry, her foster mom Marilla Cuthbert, Jane Andrews her favorite teacher, Gilbert Blythe her enemy turned friend and Priscilla Grant an old classmate are people the reader would have met in the earlier book. New characters like the crotchety Mr. Harrison, who owns a rude parrot appropriately called Ginger, the twins Dora and Davy Keith, Paul Irving and a few more provide lots of fun and entertainment. Anne remains as delightful as she was in the earlier book, getting in and out of various scrapes of her own creation, imaginative, gutsy and full of spirit and joie de vivre. Towards the end of the book, we find her and Gilbert charting out their future careers and planning to start university life in Redmond College which of course keeps readers eagerly awaiting the next book in the series! Touches of romance, flashes of Montgomery's typical tongue in cheek humor, a lively and interesting heroine, wonderful descriptions of the Canadian landscape and the idyllic Prince Edward Island countryside and a host of memorable characters make Anne of Avonlea a great read especially if you're continuing on with the entire series!

Llama

- Voice

I love the narrorator and annes voice! I also love Marilla’s voice! I cant stand Davey’s voice and Diana’s voice is waaaay too mature for the age in the book. They also need to have the same accent

Diana's voice sound like kind of weird but book is good.

Elyse

I appreciate all of the volunteers taking this on, but have a very hard time with some of the character voices. Each character has a different accent... They are supposed to be from the same place. Davey's voice is makes me want to skip every section he speaks. Diana's voice is way too mature for the age she is supposed to be in the book. Gilbert's voice is not how I envisioned and sounds like he has a cold. Loved Anne and Marilla!

I don't like Diana's voice or Gilbert's voice but I like the others

Davy: I AM A ROBOT! Diana: AND I SOUND LIKE I AM AN OLD LADY WITH SUPER PUDGEY CHEEKS!

Ella

I'm unhappy about Gilbert's and Diana's voice, but all the other voices are pretty good. Anne and Marilla's voice match perfectly with their character.

Laura

- The voices

Anne and Gilberts voices are lovely! Marilla has a great voice!Diana's voice sounded like a 7o year old woman. I don't care for Davy's voice. All in all, I love the book!!

Not none knows

- Book

I don't care what anyone says I like it all and the voices are fine to me.

Allison

- Great Book

I'm not sure why everyone is complaining about Anne and the narrator's voice being too similar. They're the same person, (which makes sense as this is Anne's story) and I think she does fabulous. Can't stand Davy's voice. I know they're volunteers and their time is appreciated, but this reader is incredibly difficult to listen to. Diana's voice is read by a much older lady and makes it somewhat awkward, but overall she does an excellent job and is very nice to listen to. Overall a great job.

LOVE Anne and the Narrator--who I thought was the same person? Love Marilla! Davey is so weird I can barely listen. The rest need help too. Bizarre--but we keep listening.

Carrie

- Very well done

Yep, Davey sounds like a robot from Minnesota. But on the whole, this and Green Gables are quite well done and make for enjoyable listening.

i like anne's voice... diana's voice, (despite the other reviews) is quite good!

katie

- voices

I love Anne's voice and Gilbert's. But Diana's voice is terrible, she sounds likes she 55 years old! I've read the book before and in the Diana is supposed to 18 years old. Also, Anne's voice sound to much like the narrator's voice or the other way around. I advise to change Rachael Lynde's voice it sounds to serious and not proper enough. Anyway, I love it overall!

NVR

Overall, I enjoyed this as much as the last book! I was able to get used to most of the voices even if I didn't like them at first. However, I was really disappointed with Charlotta IV's voice. I know it was a comparatively smaller role but it's a fun character and there was an utter lack of vocal expression there. But all in all I am so enjoying listening to this version of the series!

F

- Awful voice!

Please change the voices! I can't follow one bit!

Sophie

I absolutely love the narrators for Anne & Gilbert. They're perfect. Some of the others are just okay, but it's still enjoyable. Diana doesn't really fit the character.

Karen

- I like it!

Despite it's minor problems I think it is a really great recording!

Rohma

It was good because of Anne's narration on the whole if Davy starts being natural he'd do better.

Peyton

- Lovley : )

I love Davey but Diana is bad and isn't Marilla getting old!!!!

Regan

- Davey

I can hardly listen to this because of Davey. Is he a big character through out this book?

Cindi

- Lovely :-)

Enjoyed this very much. Cast are good apart from Diana who sounds far too old for a young and lovely girl!?

Cynthia

- Fine

The Diana reader doesn't seem the appropriate age for a sixteen to eighteen year old. I can escape into the story except during exchanges with Diana, which immediately take me out of my reverie.

Devon

- Satisfied

The readers Davy and Diana truly are difficult to listen to, but otherwise, it is fantastic!

Audrey

- happy

Davy is read horribly - I almost had to skip those parts. Otherwise an excellent recording. Anne and Marilla are perfect.

Alix

- delightful

Anne/narrator is superb - she more than carries the variations in recording quality from other characters thanks to all volunteers.

Shen Fran

- Exquisite

Although there were a few minor flaws on some of the characters, the book was very well dramatized. Thank you everyone.

Peggy

- 5 stars

Main narration excellent. Gilbert and Diana's could be improved upon, but dubbed in nicely.

我很喜欢这本书,家里有一本中文版的,英文版的用处很大,声音也很好听,顶!(I love this book ,I have a Chinese one at home ,really interesting.The English one is very useful,the voices are beautiful,I love it!)

Naomi

- Very happy! :)

I love these audio books! Diana's voice is the only one that I don't particularly like, but Anne's voice is perfect for her character!

Laura

I enjoy the main narrator's voice, but the other voice actors are awful! The quality of the recordings are poor and they sound like they're reading their lines for the first time.

Tabitha

I really appreciate all of the people that contribute to these recordings. Unfortunately, this is nearly painful to listen to because of the tone and inflection (or lack thereof) of one of the narrators. The other reviewer mentioned the monotone. I could handle that. But it's coupled with this over pronunciation that makes some of the phrasing so awkward that it requires contemplation just to figure out what she's trying to say occasionally. You are so grateful when it rolls over from chapter 5 to chapter 6 and that narrating voice changes...

Paula

- Unhappy

The person reading this book speaks in a monotone voice. It's hard to listen to.
