My likes: Living at the Green Gables with Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert, my bosom-friend Diana, dresses with puff sleeves, renaming Barry's pond the Lake of Shining Waters, coming top of the class. My regrets: Dying my hair green. Smashing a slate over Gilbert Blythe's head. My dream: To be tame my temper. To be good (this is an uphill struggle ).

Portrait

L. M. Montgomery, known as Maud, was born on Prince Edward Island, off the coast of Canada, in 1874. Maud's mother died when she was just a baby and so she had a rather unhappy childhood growing up in the care of her strict grandparents. She was just sixteen when she had her first poem published. As a young woman she worked as a teacher and although she didn't enjoy it much it gave her lots of time to write. Maud wrote hundred of short stories, poems and novels throughout her life but it was the hugely popular Anne of Green Gables and its sequels that made her famous. She died in 1942.

Zitat
"Within months of the book's publication Anne became a classic heroine for any little girl who has ever fretted about her looks, hungered for Art and Beauty, and pursued long words in the hope they would become her special friends" Guardian "A scrawny 13-year-old, all carrot-colored pigtails and outrageous chatter, Anne seems fated to go nowhere but back to the orphanage. Her new family, after all, ordered a boy and she was delivered by mistake. But by turning adversity to advantage with lots of spunk, Anne of Green Gables has enchanted four generations of children and their elders since the world's most widely read Canadian novel was first published in Boston in 1908" New York Times "Montgomery's ability to incorporate such complex themes into writing that is so accessible to younger readers makes her arguably the grandmother of the YA/adult crossover novel" Guardian "Anne is a captivating heroine, a whirlwind of energy and good intentions" New Statesman

Lucy Maud Montgomery's "Anne of Green Gables" is probably one of the most beloved and widely known Canadian classics and I am almost ashamed to say that it hasn't been on my radar before watching "Anne with an E". This book tells the story of Anne Shirley, an extremely talkative and bright young orphan girl who is adopted by an elderly pair of siblings. The first novel of the series spans five years, in which a dreamy eleven-year-old Anne keeps Marilla and Matthew on their toes, forms friendships and unitentionally causes quite a stir from to time, all whilst growing into an ambitious and warm-hearted young woman. I enjoyed reading "Anne of Green Gables" a lot. I loved Anne as a protagonist and enjoyed watching her grow, not only in age, but in character as well. Even though this book was written more than a hundred years ago, the issues Anne deals with in her young life are still relevant today, and everyone - no matter their age - will find something of themselves in her. But not only the eponimous heroine is a highly relatable and well-rounded character - the same holds true for a handful of others as well, most notably Matthew and Marilla. The only "problem" I had with this book was that the more the story progressed, the more rushed it felt to me. The first year of Anne's life at Green Gables is described quite detailedly, whilst the remaining four fly by with only little glimpes into it here and there. "Anne of Green Gables" truly is a book for all ages and I highly recommend it to virtually everyone. Personally, I can't wait to see how Anne's story continues in "Anne of Avonlea".
