From the Inside Flap

Anne Shirley is, Mark Twain observed, "the dearest and most lovable child in fiction since the immortal Alice," and like the elderly Cuthberts who had hoped to adopt a boy instead of the spunky red-headed orphan, generations of readers have grown to love the impetuous Anne.Canada's best known and most beloved novel is available in the definitive text of Montgomery's 1908 classic, an enchanting and timeless story of real lives and real loves.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

Beginning of Chapter 1  Anne sat tensely on the pile of shingles, staring up and down the empty platform. 
The train had left the station long since and still no one had come for her.
She grasped the handle of her shabby, old-fashioned carpet bag, and searched, with large grey-green eyes, for any sign of life.
Then, just as the ticketmaster was locking the front door of the station, a horse and buggy rattled up.
At last, she sighed, and her heart calmed a little.
A man with a long, full beard clambered down.
He looks kindly, she thought, and her eyes followed him as he sidled past her without even a glance and went up to the stationmaster.
She strained to catch words from the low murmuring.
Suddenly she heard, "Well, she’s the only one got off the train." They both looked her way and the bearded man shrugged.
He must be for me, Anne thought desperately and jumped to her feet.
"I suppose you are Mr.
Matthew Cuthbert of Green Gables." She held out her hand as she had been taught.
"I’m very glad to see you.
I was afraid you weren’t coming for me and I was imagining what I’d do.
I thought I’d climb up that big wild cherry tree at the bend.
I wouldn’t be a bit afraid to sleep up there." He blinked, still holding her hand, then said shyly, "I’m sorry I was late.
Come along.
The horse is over there.
Give me your bag." "Oh I can carry it.
It isn’t a bit heavy." She grasped the shabby bag and followed him.
"I’m very glad you’ve come.
It seems so wonderful that I’m going to live with you and belong to you.
I’ve never belonged to anyone – not really." The man glanced at her and then away again as he swung her bag into the buggy.
Anne felt nervous all of a sudden and rattled on, "The asylum was the worst.
I don’t suppose you’ve ever been an orphan in an asylum.
I was only there four months, but it was worse than anything you can imagine." He said nothing, just waited until she had settled herself on the seat and then clucked to the the horse.
I’d better not talk, Anne decided, folding her hands in her lap.
The buggy lurched and they were off.
As they bumped along in silence, Anne gazed around her.
They had left the village and were driving down a steep hill, the road part of which had ben cut so deeply into the soft soil that the banks, fringed with blooming wild cherry trees and slim white birches, made an archway several feet above their heads.
"Oh, Mr.
Cuthbert! Oh, Mr.
Cuthbert!" Anne exclaimed, her thin hands clasped before her, her face lifted rapturously to the white splendour above.
"Did you ever see anything so wonderful? It’s the first thing I ever saw that couldn’t be improved by imagination.
I always heard Prince Edward Island was the preetiest place in the world.
I just love it already.
I’m so glad I’m going to live here." Matthew cleared his throat.
"Well now…" He gave her such a sad look that Anne said quickly, "Am I talking too much? People are always telling me I do.
I can stop when I make up my mind to it, although it’s difficult.
Would like me to stop?" "Oh, you can talk as much as you like.
I don’t mind." "I’m so glad.
I know you and I are going to get along together fine.
It’s such a relief to talk when one wants and not to be told children should be seen and not heard.
People laugh at me because I use big words but if you have big ideas, you have to use big words, don’t you?" "Well now, that does sound reasonable." "Do you know," Anne said, her thoughts darting off in another direction, "my arm must be all black and blue.
I was so afraid this was all a dream I had to keep pinching myself to see if it was real.
But it is real.
And we’re nearly home."

  •     Don't pass on this kindle book ASIN: B01IAQI9WQ (especially given it's reasonable price) All eight of the primary stories featuring Anne Shirley are included in order of how the main character ages (rather than year published which makes more sense to me) as follows:1) Anne of Green Gables ages 11-16 found at the 1% mark in kindle version(start)2) Anne of Avonlea ages 16-18 found at the 14% mark in kindle version3) Anne of the Island ages 18-22 found at the 26% mark in kindle version4) Anne of Windy Poplars ages 22-25 found at the 37% mark in kindle version5) Anne's House of Dreams ages 25-27 found at the 49% mark in kindle version6) Anne of Ingleside ages 34-40 found at the 60% mark in kindle version7) Rainbow Valley ages 41-43 found at the 75% mark in kindle version8) Rilla of Ingleside ages 49-53 found at the 86% mark in kindle versionNeed a larger font or different type for your basic kindle? Open the book, press the menu button and click on "Change Font Size" where you have your choice of 8 size settings, 3 different typefaces, 3 line space settings or you can even reconfigure the words per line.This collection actually bested my former favorite Anne of Green Gables Collection (Xist publishing ASIN: B016CFGT2Y) by including "Anne of Windy Poplars" which isn't one you're going to find separately for free on kindle.Don't get discouraged if when you open the book for the first time or use the "Go to" button so as to arrive at the beginning you might think that it does not have a table of contents because it does! Simply use the page back function at that point and there you will find an active table of contents for all eight books including every chapter heading (which isn't something I necessarily require).Reason I'm giving it only 4 stars? Doesn't include "Chronicles of Avonlea" and "Further Chronicles of Avonlea" which does reference Anne Shirley when she was about 20 years of age and for me should be in a 'complete' set (tho you can pick these two titles up free for kindle). Otherwise, book is a bargain and one I would definitely recommend.

  •     Old gift order of classic book

  •     While the original novel is an excellent book this particular Kindle version is atrocious. It butchers the flowing language of the original.

  •     I LOVED Anne of Green Gables as a child and own the complete hard copy of the Anne series. Initially, I was delighted to find this collection of books written by one of my all time favorite authors for only $0.99 (kindle price. What a steal!) and felt I had to get the digital copy for my kindle at once. As soon as the product was delivered to my device, I began to read it since it's been years since I've visited the darling world that L.M Montgomery created.I was very surprised to find that I kept tripping on certain sentences; the writing didn't seem as smooth as I remembered. When I got to chapter 6, I decided to compare a sentence in the digital print to my old, yellowing physical copy of Anne of Green Gables book. I realized why I had some difficulty reading my new digital copy: THERE ARE TYPOS IN THIS PRODUCT.It contains the WORST kinds of typos. There are typos in which it results in sentences that don't make sense. There are typos with the wrong pronouns in them that make it confusing for the reader to understand which character the publisher meant to write about. I am able to follow the story because I've read Anne of Green Gables more than once with my hard copy but for new readers, these typos will make this beautiful story difficult to read and at times, understand.I hope the digital copy can be fixed so that owners can enjoy L.M. Montgomery's work as it was meant to be enjoyed. I have given this two stars instead of one because of the fabulous price for kindle readers.

  •     i am 69 and i am not too old to enjoy this classic

  •     A bit too rambling, but fun!

  •     I had trouble laying the book down. I felt so incomplete when I stopped and couldn't wait to start back up. The best books I have ever read.

  •     Bought as a gift for granddaughter

  •     Anne of Green Gables is a wonderful classic story and it gets 5 stars. This particular printing, however, is completely unacceptable. It's as if someone typed it into a document, and printed it off--no page numbers, not titled at the top of each page, the lines don't even break properly (see photo). Purchased as a gift, thankfully with enough time to purchase a better quality copy--probably for less money! A disgrace to the publishing community.

  •     beautiful

  •     This advertises you will get the complete collection, but you only get the 1st 2 books. The illustrations have NOTHING to do with the story.

  •     Two years ago I would have bet a bazillion dollars I would never read a "girls" book. But at 71 years of age I found myself in a house full of books only one of which I had not read. I am terrribly addicted to reading so, in desperation, I started "Anne of Green Gables". It is a marvelous book with a main character I wish I could meet every day in real life. Again to feed my addiction I bought the "Anne of Green Gables" series. Each book was a delight and I soon forgot that they were "girls" books. Maud created a character we all need in our life. She turns the mundane magical and believable. Reading them all in nearly a continous setting makes Anne "wearying" to quote Marilla since unbounded child-like wonder is hard to maintain. I wish I had read these books decades ago so Anne could have helped me through some less than happy times.

  •     How is this book different?1. It says "Complete Collection", but you are only getting Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea. If you are wanting a complete "Complete Collection" of the Anne stories, this is not it.2. Yes, there is a free audio book, but you get ads for it in the middle of your reading. At least they didn't put it smack in the middle of a paragraph or something. Kind of annoying.3. Illustrations. Yep. They're there! But don't be fooled into thinking they actually have anything to do with the story. Not. One. Bit.This will do for reading this series...erm...duo of books to my kids, but had I known about these 3 issues, I would have shopped around a little more. I guess the good thing is that it was only a $.99 mistake.

  •     Wholesome, uplifting, a breath of fresh air in the modern world. It takes me to a time long past that seems simpler.

  •     great books and movies
