    One thought on “Anne's House of Dreams”

    1. I originally read the entire Anne series when I was 11. In fact, the Anne books were among the first ones I bought with my money, money I had earned doing odd chores or watching my younger brothers for an hour or two.I recently went to an event at the Margaret Mitchell House featuring romance authors, and one of the questions was "What's your favorite literary kiss?" I started thinking about my own answer, and decided it might be the very end of "Anne of the Island" - FINALLY Anne realized she a [...]

    2. "Anne was always romantic, you know," said Marilla apologetically."Well, married life will most likely cure her of that," Mrs. Lynde responded comfortingly.Woo-hoo! This is the moment we've been waiting for - the wedding of Anne and Gilbert.After a simple ceremony at Green Gables, the two lovebirds head to a small house in Four Winds Harbour. (As this book was first published in 1917, there are, or course, no details of the wedding night. That's rather a pity, as I would love to hear Anne's comm [...]

    3. I enjoyed this, though not as much as precious books! I still love Anne and Gilbert and I really love all the new characters and Four Winds! Just so lovely.

    4. Anne's House of Dreams (Anne of Green Gables #5), L.M. Montgomery Anne's House of Dreams is a novel by Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery. It was first published in 1917 by McClelland, Goodchild and Stewart. The novel is from a series of books written primarily for girls and young women, about a young girl named Anne Shirley. The books follow the course of Anne's life. It is set principally on Canada's Prince Edward Island, Montgomery's birthplace and home for much of her life. تاریخ نخ [...]

    5. Sadly, my enjoyment of Montgomery's Anne series diminishes as the series goes along. While even those books set outside of Avonlea still manage to contain wonderful characters who add such lovely color to the stories, especially the Redmond group and the clan at Windy Poplars, once Anne is married and sets up house the appeal goes right out the window for me. One must agree with Gilbert's statement in House of Dreams, that many people would indeed think that Anne, a Redmond B.A. and a published [...]

    6. These books have a special place in my heart now <3 I can definitely see these being ones that I will reread over and over again as I get older! :D Like I've said before, the characters are just what makes these books so great to me! We got to meet some new ones in this oneCaptain Jim, Miss Cornelia, and Leslie Moore are a few :) I was surprised by how much development Leslie's character went through in the story and I just enjoyed seeing her grow. I loved getting to see Anne and Gilbert as h [...]

    7. What happened to Anne??You'll stay right here with me, Anne-girl," said Gilbert lazily. "I won't have you flying away from me into the hearts of storms.Oh, that's right. She got married. I miss the adventuring Young Anne - with haunted woods and dryad's bubble. I wish we still had the College-gal Anne - with her little cottage of friends. I would even prefer the Schoolmistress Anne - battling the Pringles and educating young minds.Anne was strong, independent, with dreams and ambitions of writin [...]

    8. Anne and Gilbert are finally reunited and move to Four Winds in their House of Dreams (I wonder how many times that phrase is used in this book teehee). Montgomery has once again created a new cast of characters in Captain Jim, Ms Cornelia Bryant (sounds just like a man!) and beautiful Leslie Moore. I enjoyed this jaunt into the newlywed's life on another part of the island. I enjoyed getting to know Leslie's dark past and appreciated the darker undertones in this novel and the strong female pro [...]

    9. I've always been and always will be one of Anne's biggest fans! Her poetic love for the world and her vivid imagination has always capture me in ways unexplainable. Even so, I've never read this particular book, for reasons beyond me.This is most definitely my favourite! It makes you smile, it makes you cry and it makes you feel.To think I've missed out on it before is almost heartbreaking. But never the less, it's part of me now and I will forever cherish it and hold it O so close to my heart.L [...]

    10. I mostly liked all of the book but it was a tiny bit choppy to me. but I don't know if anyone else feels that way but me.

    11. Oh.goodness.I must sadly admit I didn't like this one, at first the second half it had grown on me immensely. I must say that I find this to be the most sorrowful Anne book. There do seem to be many more tragedies wrapped up in this one than any of the others. I find this one to be darker, too. Not in a bad way. But the feel of it is just so different. I have to say, that that is why I didn't like this at first. But, the book did have many happy moments, as well. (Also, when I was reading the ma [...]

    12. ANNE AND GILBERT SITTING IN A TREE. K-I-S-S—OH WAIT THERE'S BARELY ANY KISSING IN THIS ONE EITHER. Yes, if you read between the lines (and "decode" the stork metaphor), then you know that there's a lot more than kissing happening in their "house of dreams", but the on-page count is in the single digits. Saddest trombone noises.1. I am very frustrated by my reaction to this book on this reread. It's for multiple reasons, but the gist of it is that it didn't tell the story I remembered it tellin [...]

    13. Thoroughly enjoyed this one in the series and it was very ably narrated by Karen Savage for LibriVox. Highly recommend.

    14. 2.5 starsReally didn't like the setting, every page seemed to have some long, detailed description of Anne's House or the area surrounding it and it was plain boring. I did enjoy some of the new characters though, Cornelia, Owen, and Captain Jim were all great. The parts that were most interesting though were the ones which mentioned Green Gables or had old characters from Green Gables pop up. Anne/Gilbert's relationship was rather weird, after four books of waiting for them to properly get toge [...]

    15. I really enjoyed the Anne of Green Gable series and this book is no exception. In this book Anne marries and has her first 2 children. This book is sadder than the others and there is a sense of loss through the book that can be paralleled to the loss within L.M. Montgomery's life at the time. I don't want to say anymore than that and give anything away. I wish that we knew more what Gilbert is/was thinking in this book-- I think she (L. M. Montgomery) could have done more with his character, bu [...]

    16. Review December 2014: Oh this book. I mean, I love all the books in this series but AHOD has a special place in my heart because it's the first (and only) book that is all about Anne and Gilbert. The previous four books are more about Anne and all the people she meets throughout the years with Gilbert (of course) sprinkled in. And the next three books (especially the last two) are focused mainly on their kids with Anne and Gilbert mentioned in third person. But this book, this is their book with [...]

    17. I probably first read this book back in elementary school, and have reread it a few times since then, but I sat down last weekend and actually reread every word, and just LOVED this book all over again. Anne and Gilbert are grown up and get married in an early chapter, and then leave Avonlea to start their lives together far away (60 miles!) from Green Gables. This book was moving, and sad, and funny, and everything that you want for a favorite character as she matures. There may not be as many [...]

    18. After rivalling one another throughout grade school in book one, keeping a distant friendship in book two, Anne coming to realize that she truly loves Gilbert as she is threatened with losing him in book three, and spending a long courtship apart in book four, Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe are now getting married. The book begins as Anne spends her last evening as a single woman reminiscing with her bosom friend, Diana Wright. The next day, a simple, yet beautiful, September wedding takes plac [...]

    19. میدونم خواندن این کتاب به سن و سال الان من نمیخوره اما همیشه معتقدم گاهی باید بخاطر کودک درون هر کاری و انجام داد حتی خواندن آن شرلی با رویاها و آرزوهای شیرینش

    20. I don't tend toward gifs in my posts or reviews or whathaveyou, but about halfway through Anne's House of Dreams (the Librivox audio edition) I realized the best way to describe my reaction to listening to this series is this way:Me, listening to Anne of Avonlea and Anne of the Island:Me, listening to Anne's House of Dreams:I usually say Windy Poplars is my favorite Anne book; not this time around. Not just because it took me forever to find an audio edition (or because when I did find one the r [...]

    21. Audiobook performed by Justine EyreIn book five of this much-beloved series, Anne begins her married life. I don’t want to say any more because I don’t want to include spoilers. What I love about these books is Anne, herself. She’s so optimistic and friendly, with good common sense, a kind heart, and a generous spirit. She is no stranger to trouble and heartache, and this book definitely includes some heart-wrenching events, but she relies on her strength of character to see her through, a [...]

    22. Well, that was an emotional rollercoaster in the best way! This book had more emotional depth than I expected. I thought it would be a fairly light story about Anne and Gilbert finding their “house of dreams”, but while there were certainly plenty of happy moments to be had, there were also some really deep themes about motherhood, grief, the unfairness of life (but still having hope for better things in the face of that unfairness), and making morally correct choices whether they are “eas [...]

    23. A beautiful treasure of a book!I’m feeling a little melancholy right now as this is end of the stories in which they are all solely about Anne— and the next are all focused on Anne’s children which I plan to go ahead and read, nonetheless, because let’s be honest; who wouldn’t want to read about Gil and Anne’s kids? I want to see who inherited the red hair as it played a major contribution toward their existence. ;) and so much more!Anyway, this book explores the beginning of Gil and [...]

    24. SUMMARY: Anne is marrying Gilbert Blythe!

But Anne is always up for an adventure, especially when she has Gilbert by her side.The newlyweds settle right in to their house of dreams. Anne couldn’t be more content—the house is darling and fits all of her lofty requirements: a bubbling brook running thr [...]

    25. Anne's House of Dreams chronicles Anne and Gilbert's first years together in the little "house of dreams" in the picturesque, lonely and sometimes wild seascapes of Four Winds Harbour. It introduces intriguing and entertaining new characters - Captain Jim, the tragic Lesley, the outspoken and warmhearted Miss Cornelia and homely Susan. Here Anne experiences her first grown-up tragedy and grows up a little while retaining all her charm, romance and (eventually) warmhearted optimism. There are the [...]

    26. The setting of this book is one of my favorite things about it. The sea, the lighthouse, the dunes, the lovely little cottage nestled in flowers. *sigh* I can see it all like a painting. I love Captain Jim, and Cornelia was fun comedic relief. This book has a more central, focused plot than Windy Poplars, which I greatly appreciated. Yes, it's very predictable at times, but there's such a nice fairy tale feel pervading everything that I don't mind the author orchestrating a few happy endings. Th [...]

    27. آنه و گیلبرت بالاخره در خانه‌ی رویاهاشون با هم زندگی می‌کنن. در این کتاب هم مثل بقیه‌ی کتاب‌ها آنه با آدم‌های جدید مواجه میشه و مستقیم و غیرمستقیم روی زندگی‌شون تأثیر میذاره. گرچه این کتاب رو از قبلی بیشتر دوست داشتم، ولی انتظار داشتم یه کم بیشتر درباره‌ی آنه و گیلبرت باشه [...]
