“Anne of Green Gables” is the beloved classical novel by the Canadian authoress Lucy. M. Montgomery. It is the story of a little orphan girl who was adopted by Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert. Anne’s life changed radically when she came to live at Green Gables with the benevolent elderly brother and sister. There, she found the home she had never had. Anne was surrounded by love and affection by the people in the Province of Prince Edward Island. For the first time in her life as a teenager, she was appreciated and treated with tenderness and dignity, which she was severely deprived of throughout her troubled childhood. In Matthew and Marilla, she found two loving and kind parents who raised her as their own child and gave hope, shape and meaning to her life and girlish dreams.
Anne was endowed with the divine gift of winning the hearts of the people whom she met. She was such a unique young girl. She was good-natured and generous. She had an insatiable desire to learn, to get the best out of life and be useful and obliging to the people whom she trusted. She embraced her new life with genuine passion and lived it cheerfully.
The stories about Anne are uncommonly hilarious. She is possessed with a wild and vivid imagination so that she never grows bored of things. Anne has the extraordinary ability to make you burst into laughter with the things she says and does. She possesses an adventurous spirit and each new scrape she gets herself into, carries you away in the wonderful and blissful world of Anne, where there is “much scope for imagination”.
In conclusion, “Anne of Green Gables” is a true masterpiece. The plot, characters, the splendid and charming landscapes of Canada and the timeless message of the novel are presented as a valuable work of art in which everyone may partake and revel in.
Last but not least, we wish to inform all the bookworms out there that there are eight books in total. Anne’s story starts when she is but a teenager and the reader meanders throughout the beautiful stages of womanhood and adulthood in Anne’s fascinating life. It’s worth reading all eight. Enjoy.
