Book Review: Anne Of Green Gables Clothbound Classic by L. Montgomery - Reviewed by Romi Foster (02 Jul 2011)
Though Anne of Green Gables was written a very very long time ago, it seems mostly as if it were only written a very short time ago. The few historical moments, mentioning Slates for writing on and the old picturesque country towns, very few of which you'll be able to find today, it is a true, hearty, country classic, written for every age of every era- it is beautifully written and Anne is one of the most amazing characters and she seems like she would be an amazing friend.
Anne of Green Gables, in this amazing Puffin Classic edition with cover designed by Lauren Child, is the perfect companion for any child or adult, a perfect read for anytime.
Author Biography - L. Montgomery
Lucy Maude Montgomery (1874 - 1942) was born on Prince Edward Island, off the east coast of Canada. She spent her childhood there, living with her grandparents after her mother's death when she was only two. Many scenes in Anne of Green Gables are drawn from her happy memories of the island and the farmhouse where she was brought up. She was an avid reader and was always writing poems and short stories. Her first published work, a poem, appeared in the local paper when she was just fifteen. After school and university she became a teacher, always continuing with her writing. When she was asked to contribute a short story to a magazine, she dusted off an idea for a plot she had jotted down when she was much younger, and turned it into Anne of Green Gables, one of the most popular books ever written. Lucy said about the book- 'I thought girls in their teens might like it. But grandparents, school and college boys, old pioneers in the Australian bush, girls in India, missionaries in China, monks in remote monasteries, premiers of Great Britain, and red-headed people all over the world have written to me, telling me how they loved Anne and her successors.'Lucy married a Presbyterian minister in 1911 and moved with him to Toronto. She continued to set her stories on 'the only island there is' and where her heart always remained.
