    One thought on “Anne of the Island”

    1. OH MY HEART.I love Anne and I love Gilbert and I love everyone and I love these books.Following Anne's story has made me SO HAPPY it's just so lovely and I can't deal with how good this series is. Anne at college and all her adventures are so lovely. <3I have no other words besides that I love these books.

    2. My sentimental favorite of the Anne series. I always thought college was going to be just like that - my best friends, a cute little house in a great neighborhood, and my childhood friend, madly in love with me. Anne is one of my favorite literary heroines, and I liked her transition between girlhood and adulthood. She's grown out of classic Anne of Green Gables, but she's still the same person.I must have read this book 30 times, and it never gets any less fun. It's one of my top 5 comfort book [...]

    3. This one could basically be summed up as "no, Anne will not marry you."The first is still my favorite, but there were a lot of quotes I loved in this one as well! And 5 stars for Gilbert.

    4. Ah . . . more comfort food in the form of a book.After an eventful summer, changes are in store for Anne as she prepares to leave Avonlea for Redmond College.Anne dressed in the cheerless gray dawn, for an early start was necessary to catch the boat train; she struggled against the tears that would well up in her eyes in spite of herself. She was leaving the home that was so dear to her, and something told her that she was leaving it forever, same as a holiday refuge. Things would never be the s [...]

    5. Montgomery, L.M. 1915. Anne of the Island."Harvest is ended and summer is gone," quoted Anne Shirley, gazing across the shorn fields dreamily.I don't know if there are enough words to describe how I feel about Anne of the Island. It is one of the most magically, wonderful, giddy-making, purely-delightful, satisfying books I've ever readd rereadd reread. Reading this book makes all the world seem right. (At least during the reading process.) It picks up shortly after where Anne of Avonlea leaves [...]

    6. "In imagination she sailed over storied seas that wash the distant shining shores of "faery lands forlorn," where lost Atlantis and Elysium lie, with the evening star for pilor, to the land of Hearts Desire. And she was richer in those dreams than in realities; for things seen pass away, but the things that are unseen are eternal."Dear Lucy Maud,Thank you.Love,Jo.Dear Manchester,Anne says hi.Hope you’re well.Jo.Gilbert,[Censored]Always,J.Mrs Gardner, You called your son Royal?ROYAL?What is wro [...]

    7. Gahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. How did Ieverrate this book less than five stars???!!!!!It was brilliant. No, more than that. It was captivating, thrilling, and soemotional.I don't know why I gotsoemotional while reading this. I almost yelled out loud, and I cried about five timesH. THIS BOOK IS AMAZING.Where has my love for it been all my life?!!! Why have I not read this 20 times yet?!!!!I loved it to bits.Definitely a new all-time-favourite. I loved it, okay?!!!!What made me cry: 1. When [...]

    8. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!! :D :D :D :DI loved this book SOOOOO much!! Probably as much as the first book, if not maybe even a little bit more! :)) It was really hard at first to determine which one I liked better, but I think I like Anne of the Island more since she just starts college and all ^_^ I felt like I could relate to her and the things she went through more in this book. There were so many little, tiny things that I enjoyed about this book, but the main thing I loved….(I think you can guess [...]

    9. Holy crap, do you guys know what this is?! It’s a New Adult book that was written ONE HUNDRED YEARS AGO! (Seriously, that’s what this is!) I had no idea this sub-genre existed back then, lol! College? Check. Relationship drama and angst? Check. Sassy, funny girlfriend? Check. Handsome, cocky love interest? Che— Wait, NO. No, no, nope! Move over all you hot, arrogant assholes, cuz Gilbert Blythe blows ALL of you out of the fricken water!I totally loved this. LOVED. THIS.Love love love love [...]

    10. Now this is the college life I longed forAll challenges overcome with a bit of plucky effort and everything always works out just the way it needs to. By the third novel of such coincidences, I am starting to grow a little tired of the sheer perfection of everything.I really dislike how Diana Barry - who was so essential to the first books - is pushed aside now that Anne's in college. Instead, we have Prissy Grant and new friend Philippa Gordon in addition to Anne as she heads to college. They s [...]

    11. Anne is a little older and goes to school at Redmont with her friend, Prissy. Along the way they meet Phillippa Gordon (who may be my favorite character so far in the series, I mean besides Anne of course!). Phil, Prissy, and Anne find a house to let -- quaint and practically perfect. The house is called Patty's Place and they all soon move in. They find themselves with three cats- a fireplace, and imagination which makes for a lovely setting. Anne is trying to figure out what love is and how sh [...]

    12. When I get to heaven, I want to meet Lucy Maud Montgomery! What insight the woman had, and what depth. I loved the first book for its tenderness and vitality, the second for its insight and humor. This book had all of those things, but added something more--tremendous depth. I believe the theme of this book is maturity, and the old characters as well as some new ones gain and display this quality without making the book at all dry or humorless--it is quite the opposite. Of course, there are othe [...]

    13. Anne Shirley goes to Redmond, makes friends, discovers boys are A Thing, and returns to Green Gables and Avonlea which she is startled to realize no longer feel quite like home. Every time I try to approach these books logically to provide a thorough critique and commentary on them, my soul cries out and I'm left clutching fistfuls of tears shouting about my childhood. There's something so intrinsically linked to who I was when I first read them that I can't separate myself from them. It's just [...]

    14. It's a sad reminder how times change when you approach the bookstore with a gleam in your eye of rediscovering a childhood favorite only to find that they no longer carry it. That was my recent experience where instead of finding Laura Ingalls Wilder and L.M. Montgomery I found vampires, sorcery, and scantily clad teenagers glaring at me from overly bright and shiny bookcovers.I will not claim that the Anne series is monumental fiction but it was too me. I wonder if youth today are getting in th [...]

    15. I loved going away to college with Anne. Her life there with her friends at Patty's Place just exudes charm and cozy-feelings. Of course, I was thrilled with the happily-ever-after, while completely relating to Anne's nostalgia about days gone by. I think Anne, and myself, needed the reminder that even when it's sad to leave the former things behind, there are always good things to come. Anne is such an indescribably charismatic character, one that is sincere and lovely to be around. The seconda [...]

    16. PERFECT. This book is my favourite in the series, if only for that ending. I fangirl-squee every time I read it, and I never fangirl-squee. P.S. I love Anne and Gilbert together and Gilbert is wonderful

    17. Continuing my friendship with Anne with the third book in the series, I had the same surefire calm vacation experience as I've done reading the ones before. There's not much to be said about a new Anne book - other than the fact that if you've enjoyed one of them, you'll probably enjoy another too. There was only one thing slightly off in this one for me - it's supposed to be a book about Anne in college. And yet - Anne's college goes by without any college. I feel like we don't hear about it at [...]

    18. After this book the series has lost its charm, I don't think I'll read any of the other books. This wasn't exactly a bad book just kind of tedious. It takes place over 3 years and goes between Anne being at college and at Green Gables. The best part: Anne and Gilbert finally get together!The good part: It's fun to see Anne and her friends making a home out of Patty's place, even if her new friend Phil is extremely annoying.The bad part: Davy is still disturbing to read about. He cries because he [...]

    19. - Mama, čitam sad ostale knjige o Eni iz Zelenih Zabata; poslednji put kad sam ih čitala bila sam mnogo mlađa od nje i sve mi je bilo uzbudljivo, a sad sam ja po prvi put starija nego što je ona.- Ja i dalje kad čitam ono sto sam pročitala u detinjstvu, gledam onim mojim nekadašnjim "očima".Ja ne znam gde je ono moje ‘unutrašnje’ dete, možda ga nikad nisam ni imala, nego samo derište koje je izrazito ljuto što u ovoj knjizi nema ONOLIKO divnih opisa hrane i prirode kao u prethodn [...]

    20. This was pretty disappointing. Lucy Maud spends WAY too much time describing unimportant incidentals, like when Anne spends a summer teaching in Valley Road (I had to Google the name of the town because I couldn't for the life of me remember it, so what's that tell you about how riveting the chapter was?). It had absolutely no relevance to the story and the only thing I recall about it was that the woman driving the cart was flat-out obnoxious. "Jog along, black mare!" Ugh, it's like fingernails [...]

    21. I had forgotten how delightfully humorous this book was. But as Anne grows up and leaves for college there is also lessons to learn and heartache to face. This is another favorite that can be enjoyed many times over.

    22. It was pretty good, but Anne was too much of an idiot in this for me to fully like her, thankfully she got some brain cells by the end. Also, everything seemed way too rushed and plot driven, there wasn't as much fleshing out of characters and setting compared to the first two books.

    23. I fell in love with Anne of Prince Edward Island when I was 13. I remember that summer vividly. I brought home each book in the series from the library and read them avidly. Anne and her simple troubles were such a contrast to my divorcing/fighting parents.I was looking for a way to avoid my summer/homework reading (an assignment from our principal) when I spotted an Anne book on my classroom bookshelf. I snarfed it up.I was once told that the definition of a classic novel was a book which could [...]

    24. Review June 2017:This book is delightful. I refer to it as Anne, the college years. I love her time at Redmond, Patty's Place, her visit to Bolingbroke, etc. I laughed at the trying-to-chloroform-the-cat scene even though I probably shouldn't. And oh, Anne and Gil in here. Anne and Gilbertjusth. THOSE LAST TWO CHAPTERS ARE A ROLLER COASTER OF EMOTIONS. "Anne, don't look like that -don't look like that!" - is such a tug on the heartstrings. And then, "I don't want sunbursts and marble halls. I ju [...]

    25. Following Anne´s life continues to be as entertaining as ever. Something that made this installment extra interesting is that Anne is about the same age as me and it was quite fun to compare our situations. Also loved all the new characters (Phil especially) and the ending made me tear up. Going to pick up the next one soon as I just can´t seem to resist Montgomery´s utterly lovely books!
