Anne of Green Gables

17 May

From the ethernet:

Last month’s book club choice was Anne of Green Gables, which I’d never read before. I expected it would be too corny for me, but I actually liked it. Anne is a cheerful, innocent girl, whose appeal as a character is saved by her mischief and her status as an orphan who’s had to put up with a lot of ill treatment. So I was rooting for her.

Marilla and Matthew take her in, though they wanted a boy and by accident get a girl. They have the a rural stoicism that often conflicts with Anne’s dreaminess, but comedy is the result.

Anne really did grow on me and I’d read more. It was a good choice after reading about poor Tess in September and October.
