Title: Anne of Green Gables

Num. of pages: 398 pages
Published: January 2011
Anne of Green Gables is the first of a series of books about redheaded orphan Anne Shirley from Prince Edward Island, Canada. Published in 1908, Lucy Maud Montgomery found her inspiration for the book in a story she wrote at a young age describing a couple that was mistakenly sent an orphan girl instead of a boy but decided to keep her. She also drew upon her own childhood experiences in on the Island. Recently considered a children's book, Anne of Green Gables was originally intended as a novel for all ages.
I don't know. It was just not my cup of tea. I have read "Heidi" and "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm" which have a kinda similiar story, but so far I only like Heidi.
The whole story was fine, I think. There were some funny parts and I quite like the characters. Anne is very high spirited and has a lot of fantasies.
So, I dunno. Maybe I just don't suit with this kind of story.
