Anne of the Island

Anne of the Island by Lucy Maud Montgomery
By: (1874-1942)

Anne of the Island is the third book in the Anne of Green Gables series following the adventures of its heroine Anne Shirley as she leaves for Redmond College in the busy city of Kingsport to study for her bachelor’s degree. The third installment in the series sees the beloved protagonist experience new adventures and challenges outside the familiar setting of Avonlea.

The novel kicks off when Anne decides to pursue her dream of a higher education, and subsequently leaves her two year teaching position at the school in Avonlea and begins her studies at Redmond College. Fortunately, Anne is not alone in the new environment, as she is accompanied by her old friends Gilbert Blythe, who has also enrolled in Redmond College, as well as roommates Priscilla, Philippa and Stella. Though Anne has her mind set on good grades and flawless academic prosperity, she cannot avoid the tides of love and the many suitors offering their affection. When Anne rejects Gilbert’s proposal, stating that she only views him as a friend, she must undergo a journey of self-searching and discover the true meaning of love. Striving for a true love resembling those from the many books she has read, Anne must draw the line between fiction and reality, or she might miss her only chance at happiness. Montgomery’s third installment can be considered to be a turning point in Anne’s life as the novel brings new problems and important decisions to be made, which in turn will either make or break her. Womanhood, maturing, and love are just some of the themes explored in this classic. A novel depicting the inevitable process of growing up, Anne of the Island is a perfect illustration of the challenging and sometimes awkward moments we all go through to achieve our full potential in life.

Subject: Amazing!!!
I enjoyed listening to this book so much! the story is so good! and the narrating and Anne's voice were wonderful!!! I wasn't fond of Gilbert and Diana's voice though, but I still love that they did different voices for each character, so it was fine. highly recommend!!!!

I just love listening to this and the previous book in the series. All the voices are good but not always the quality of their recordings. I couldn’t understand Ruby’s voice at all sadly. Although a nice sounding voice, Diana’s was from inside a cupboard under the stairs I think! However, I still enjoyed this and have just managed to find the next in the series with the same voices. Thank you to the volunteers for their time, I’m really enjoying it!

Anne's voice in absolutely perfect, but much better if Diana and Gilbert had different voices.
Reviewer: - November 16, 2018
loved the book, a little disappointed in some of the voices.Diana's voice sounds like she's in a tunnel and sometimes I couldn't make out what she was saying. Pricilla souned like she may have recorded her parts over a telephone, but I'm still grateful for all the readers. Thank you for your time and afford.

Subject: great book- bad voices
I love the story and following Anne's life, but can only give 3 stars due to some of the voices that make me want to turn it off. Gilbert sounds like a moron, Diana's voice sounds like she's in a tunnel, Pricilla sounds like she recorded it over the phone.

Reviewer: - September 5, 2013
Subject: Wonderful
So nice to have a fully narrated version after the first two volumes being dramatized, often with simply awful actors. This "Anne"'s reader is delightful as all the characters.
Reviewer: - March 7, 2013
Subject: Fantastic
Thank you for making this book come to life. Anne's voice is marvelous.
Reviewer: - March 5, 2013
Main narration excellent.
Reviewer: - December 22, 2012
Subject: mostly good
Davey's actor is intolerable and Ruby's is unintelligible. Love the main actress though.
