    One thought on “Rilla of Ingleside”

    1. This is the final book of the Anne series, and deals with the lives of her children. While it's wonderful to see characters evolve into adulthood and have a next generation come to life, the real strength of this book is it's window into the homeland society of rural Maritime Canada during the first World War. It's one of few documentations (even if the characters are fictional) of what women were doing at home during the war, and this setting breathes new life into the end of the series. The se [...]

    2. This is the book that finally severed my relationship with Kevin Sullivan. When Anne of Green Gables: The Continuing Story premiered in the early 2000s, I was shocked to discover that Anne and Gilbert were suddenly time warped to WWI. That's wrong. On so many levels.WWI wasn't Anne's war, it was Rilla's, and Ken's, and Walter's, and that damn dog who turns me into a gushy mess every freaking time I read the last chapter. Rilla -- the youngest child of Anne and Gilbert -- is fifteen (see what I m [...]

    3. I have now read all eight books in the Anne of Green Gables series. Eight books that were an absolute pleasure to read. I like this one almost as much as the 1st one. It's the story of Anne's daughter Rilla, but it is set with the backdrop of World War I which has a huge influence on Anne's family. This story has a more serious tone than the other books but it is a fitting conclusion to a wonderful story.

    4. This bookIS BOOK.Seriously, I have no words. I can only sit here and cry and sob like a baby. It wasthatgood. Every reread makes me quiet in stunned awe; ever reread makes me tremble in the emotion, the beauty, the amazingness. This book is out-of-this-world amazing. I've decided it's my favourite novel.(Um, this review contains a spoiler of a certain death. But you may want to be prepared for the death, so carry on reading.)Soooooo.1. I cried more than ten times. I'm sure of it.2. I laughed (re [...]

    5. This is probably my favorite of the Anne books. I love watching Rilla mature into a young woman, and I think the romance betwen Rilla and Ken Ford is one of the best in kidlit.

    6. Now, I loved Anne. Don't get me wrong, but this book was on another whole level. I ADORED It. The heartbreak of ww1, the grown up Blythe family. . . I just loved everything about it.

    7. It was recently drawn to my attention by a fellow reader that the editions of Rilla of Ingleside, for which we had become accustomed, are abridged versions of the original edition that L.M. Montgomery published. Somehow along the way, an abridged edition appeared through an Amercian publishing house and that abridged version became the standard (accidentally). As a result, I was curious to discover what jewels of Rilla of Ingleside I was missing. While, I feel self-satisfied in the knowledge of [...]

    8. 2017 update: The more I've read this, the more I appreciate the metaphors, every day life of each characters, descriptions, laughter, and tears throughout. This book will never grow old for me. It's a dear friend :)***This is the most amazing, sweetest, heart-wrenching books I've read in my life. I've read it at least ten times (maybe more ;)) and I love it every. single. time.This is a book that can be enjoyable read on its on, but it is ever so much better if you've read the whole series. So r [...]

    9. It was with great relief and disappointment that I finally closed the last volume of the Anne series. I'm afraid I found this volume a colossal bore. Rilla, cute as she is, was not featured as prominently as the title would suggest; nor was her love story. Set during WWI, Rilla of Ingleside chronicles the entire duration of the war and how it effected those in Canada. By the time they made it to 1918 I was praying for the war to end so the dang book would end. The scenes hardly varied. It was a [...]

    10. This is a stand-out in the series for me, I love Rilla. If Dog Monday doesn't make you cry, I don't know what will. He breaks my heart every time.

    11. I started reading the Anne of Green Gables series for the first time in late 2016. Slowly, but surely, I made my way through. I liked some of the books and loved others, but none of them ever quite match the first book, which remained my favorite of them all. Then, along came Rilla. I knew from certain friends that it was different from the rest of the books because it's focus is on Anne's daughter rather than Anne herself. What I didn't realize was how very emotional it would be (in a good way [...]

    12. The final book in the Anne of Green Gables series makes a solemn capstone to an amazing run. My Dad bought me these books when I was little on the condition that I read all of them, and I've just now fulfilled that promise.Covering the duration of World War One, this book, along with Anne's House of Dreams, is definitely one of the saddest in the series. Yet these two books give the characters of Anne and her children, including the title character, her youngest daughter Rilla, a more rounded fe [...]

    13. (view spoiler)[As it turns out, I couldn't have put this down even if I wanted to (not for lack of moments where I wished I'd never started this series, so there'd be no crying over beloved characters meeting an untimely death. At one point, I put down my Kindle shouting "The end!").And yet, I couldn't stop reading. Through heartbreak and all.I suspected it would be Walter. I just. I knew it. All the signs pointed in his direction, and even if they hadn't, I knew he wouldn't survive this if only [...]

    14. 'Rilla of Ingleside' is my favourite of the 'Anne' series, it's even better than the internationally-beloved 'Anne of Green Gables'. That's my opinion, anyway! It features Rilla [short for Marilla:], Anne and Gilbert's youngest daughter, and her trials throughout WWI, when two of her brothers and the young man she cares for go off to war. Poignantly written, never dismissing hardship, heartbreak, love, and the more common of adolescent strifes such as rivalries and embarassments, 'Rilla of Ingle [...]

    15. My faaaaavorite Anne book--it focuses on her youngest child, Rilla, and it's set during WWI (the series is set in Canada, who entered the war with England, so it was a much longer and painful ordeal for them than for the US). Rilla is a silly young 15 year old when the war begins--by the end she's an amazing and strong woman. This book is wonderful! I'm regularly tearing up on my lunchbreak reading this one.

    16. I knew what to expect going into this book, from inadvertently reading summaries. Even if I hadn't, the Pied Piper foreshadowing in Rainbow Valley, gave this last book's big development away. Even so, it was very moving. I read it during a flight and cried like a lunatic the whole plane route.Being mostly familiar with U. S. History, it was interesting to see the war from a Canadian perspective. Susan's view on Woodrow Wilson and his love of "notes" was hilarious. It makes me wish that Montgomer [...]

    17. I ADORED THIS BOOK. In fact, much more than I was expecting to. Sure, everyone seems to rave about it, and it was my best friend who (gently) pushed me into reading itbut I didn't expect to LOVE it. I've read several of L.M. Montgomery's books now, and while I enjoy her writing style sometimes, overall it's not my thing, and by the time I got to Rilla of Ingleside -- the fourth book I'd read of hers in a year -- I was rather tired of it. BUT THAT DIDN'T MATTER. This is one of the most beautiful [...]

    18. Rilla, the youngest of Gilbert and Anne Blythe' s children was flighty young thing when World War I started but the next four years made her into a responsible young woman. Most surprising of all is when she fosters a baby for the duration of the war. This is an heart-breaking and triumphant story of the Great War.

    19. موقعى كه كتاب اول را شروع كرده بودم، خواندنِ ٨ كتاب چقدر به نظرم زياد مى آمد! اما الان كه كتاب آخر را تمام كرده ام، ميبينم كه كوتاه تر از آن چيزى بود كه فكر مى كردم.كتاب آخر به يقين از سه كتابِ قبلى زيباتر بود.لحظه لحظه شريك شدن در حال و هواى خانواده اى كه سه پسرشان در جنگ جهانى او [...]

    20. YAWN.Honestly, I have lost patience with this series. I think the straw that broke the camel's back was when Marilla's death is merely glanced over in oneunt it, ONEntence. I want to hear about Avonlea. I miss the romance and the scenery and the people of Avonlea. This is no longer the Anne of Green Gables series, it is the "Anne's Kids and their Friends" series. Perhaps it's because I neglected to read these stories when I was younger, sort of in the same way I really can't appreciate Newsies b [...]

    21. My goal was to read the complete series in 2017. I think Rilla of Ingleside is my favorite Anne book. Anne books in favorite order:1. Rilla of Ingleside2. Anne of Green Gables3. Anne's House of Dreams4. Anne of Avonlea5. Anne of the Island6. Anne of Windy Poplars7. Anne of Ingleside8. Rainbow Valley

    22. Rilla of Ingleside is number 619 upon the Virago Modern Classics list, and is another addition to the children’s literature which the publishing house is introducing to a whole new generation of readers. This particular L.M. Montgomery novel is recommended for those from the age of nine onwards.Rilla of Ingleside, first published in 1921, is the last book in Montgomery’s famous Anne of Green Gables series, and can be read as a standalone book. It takes place when title character Anne Shirley [...]

    23. I've been telling myself that I'm going to write more reviews and better reviews, and I remembered this book on my shelf and thought it deserved one, so here we go:This is my favorite of the Anne books. It's not much about Anne, yes, and a lot of folks have a problem with that, but it's about Anne's youngest child; her daughter, Rilla. Rilla starts out as a brat, Rilla grows up into a mature, sweet woman. This book goes through all that. She has her mother's spirit and love of beauty, but she do [...]

    24. It was so nice to have Rilla waiting for me, as I went through my 'Anne' series re-read. I would love to take a class on WWI and have 'Rilla' as one of my texts. Because Montgomery wrote this shortly after the War ended, all the details seem so fresh and ripe for discussion: the battles, the politics, the Canadian perspective, the role of women, the emerging technologies, and - my favorite - the jingoism. It's fascinating to read Montgomery's casual mentions of bricks being thrown through window [...]

    25. What made the Anne series so enjoyable was that Anne was a very three-dimensional character. She had spunk, she was stubborn, she was whimsical, she knew how to love and she knew what loss was. Rilla is not a three-dimensional character, or at least not to the same extent that her mother was. It's been ages since I read these books, and maybe I'd enjoy this one more if I were to read it again as an adult, but by the time I get through Anne of Ingleside, I'm so entirely fed up with the series tha [...]

    27. An amazing story re-published with the many [4500] former publication cuts now replaced and included edited by Benjamin Lefebvre, this special edition includes Montgomery’s complete, restored, and unabridged original text as well as a thoughtful introduction, detailed glossary, maps of Europe during the war, and war poems by L.M. Montgomery and her contemporary Virna Sheard.In my latest story, “Rilla of Ingleside,” I have tried, as far as in me lies, to depict the fine and splendid way in [...]
