Anne's House of Dreams

Anne's House of Dreams by Lucy Maud Montgomery
By: (1874-1942)

Anne’s House of Dreams is the fifth book in the Anne of Green Gables series, which features the culmination of an epic love story. The installment chronicles the lives of Anne and Gilbert as they experience life as a newlywed couple and build the foundation of their future together. A tale uniting the much-loved characters also brings a farewell to Anne Shirley and officially welcomes Anne Blythe.

The novel begins with the preparations for the wedding between Anne and her one true love Gilbert Blythe, who is finally a qualified doctor. The highly anticipated wedding is held in the Green Gables orchard, and among the guests are Marilla and childhood friend Diana. After the wedding, the couple moves to Four Winds Harbor where Gilbert will take over his uncle’s medical practice. There they settle into their new home by the shore which Anne refers to as their “house of dreams”. The new surroundings bring a colorful new array of characters including Captain Jim, Miss Cornelia Bryant, and the piteous neighbor Leslie. Unfortunately, the honeymoon stage comes to an end, as their marriage must endure its first hardships. The limelight is partially taken off Anne and instead is focused on the tragic life of Leslie. The Blythe’s find themselves in a clash of emotions and ethics, given their emotional attachment and different approaches to various issues.

Montgomery’s fifth installment changes its perception of Anne adding a new tone of sadness to the series which differs from that of the previous books. Portrayed as more mature, Anne still tries to maintain her passionate and dreamy nature. Sorrow, tragedy, trouble in marriage, and moral duty are just some of the themes explored throughout its pages. Anne’s House of Dreams signifies the new chapter in the life of Anne as she takes on the role of wife, neighbor, friend and mother.

Subject: Beautiful book.
What a lovely book!The reader was excellent! A very enjoyable pass time. I must say I agree with the other review stating the criticism isn't warranted. This is the 2nd time I am listening and am as much enthralled as the first time. Very well done.

Subject: Fair change of pace
The first three books were read by a different narrator who did indeed suit Anne very very nicely, but I found this one to be a perfectly suitable replacement for an older, more collected but still very warm and sweet Anne. I don't think all the criticism is warranted.

Subject: Kept tuning out!
I enjoyed the first three books. I must say this is almost boring and I find myself listening and not really hearing. I have had to restart chapter 7 three times. I can't stand it anymore, time to find a different book.

Subject: Awful voice
The first Thee of the Anne of Green Gables is read by a lovely voice that suits Anne perfectly. This on Anne's House of dreams is just terrible!

Subject: Beautifully read!
I quite enjoyed this narration! You emphasize it almost exactly as I read it, which is very rare on this site. Your pace was quick enough to carry me along, but not so fast that I dropped behind you. It was close to reading the book myself, and I appreciate that very, very much. Thank you for this interpretation of one of my favorite books from one of my favorite authors!

Thank you so, so much for devoting your time to record this. Your diction is beautiful, but you gallop is not. Way, way to fast my Dear. I turned it off after the fourth sentence. However, I truly have faith in you - speak unchanged, but more slowly and you will soon become a favorite. Me? I haven't finished painting my nails yet ;) I jest. Put a smile on your face and let's go again. Your words will linger for centuries.
