Customer Reviews

DO NOT BUY THIS BOOKDO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT if you are looking for a readable version of this beloved classic for your child (or even yourself). This reprint is published through CreateSpace, which is not a bad thing, but in this case the publisher simply typed in the story as massive blocks of text with very narrow margins, lines as close together as possible, and few paragraph breaks. I am an avid reader, and I normally do not worry about white space on a page, etc., but this book was typeset/formatted in such a way as to make it unpleasant for me and unreadable for my ten-year-old. She had enjoyed my aging and dilapidated copy of this book so much, that she wanted her own copy. The first thing she asked when she saw the book was, "What's wrong with the cover?" It was completely blurry and totally unprofessional. When she opened the book she said, "Mommy, I thought this was going to be like yours. I can't read all this." I found that particularly sad since she sometimes has doubts about her reading ability, and since she had already read this same book in a better format. She was so disappointed by this book. If only I had checked the publisher more carefully. Hopefully, this review will help save someone else some disappointment.1Anne of Green Gables is a wonderful classic story and it gets 5 starsAnne of Green Gables is a wonderful classic story and it gets 5 stars. This particular printing, however, is completely unacceptable. It's as if someone typed it into a document, and printed it off--no page numbers, not titled at the top of each page, the lines don't even break properly (see photo). Purchased as a gift, thankfully with enough time to purchase a better quality copy--probably for less money! A disgrace to the publishing community.1This is the edition you are looking forI wouldn't begin to rate the story itself. It has stood the test of time and is still beloved.This, however, is a beautiful edition. It is nicely bound, perfectly sized, and has a classic yet updated vintage look. If you are looking for a copy of Anne, pick this one.5Missing Two Books from SeriesDecent enough, however it is missing two books, Anne of Windy Poplars and Anne of Ingleside, though the listing does specifically state that they are included. One star for being completely misleading.1Buy Another Edition, One Which Doesn't Profit a ThiefThis is a great book, but buying this edition which Marco Pedulla purports to have translated constitutes buying stolen property.The book was written in Englilsh, so Pedulla has translated nothing. What he has done has taken material free in the public domain and offered it on Amazon.Amazon should NOT support theft.1Very poor print-on-demand editionBUYER BEWARE! The version published by "CreateSpace" is slapdash print-on-demand garbage. I hoped an illustrated version would be good for a child, but I returned it on first inspection. Nowhere could I find evidence of thought or effort in layout to justify any price. Illustrations are small, extremely infrequent, and essentially worthless. Some shameless soul has simply taken LM Montgomery's text, which, as it is in the public domain, is freely available to anyone, and tried to make money selling it. Interested readers would be advised to download a free ebook or pay for a handsomer edition, such as the Puffin In Bloom version. We went with the Puffin in Bloom version and are much more satisfied.1Buy another versionThis review is of the kindle version of Anne: The Green Gables Complete Collection and does not reflect on the L.M. Montgomery text. The Anne books have always been favorites of mine. Buy the book, but get another edition! First issue: Really random pics grabbed from some art history textbook do not qualify as illustrations. They are more distracting than I would have imagined. Why didn't they leave the totally unrelated images out? Second issue: This is some new definition of complete that I am unacquainted with. This is Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea only. None of the later books are included. False advertising. A text I am being pulled out of by unnecessary distractions. There have to be better options. I am going in search of one.1but this kindle version is absolutely terrible.This is falsely advertised as the complete collection; however, it is only the first two books. Also, the first few chapters are riddled with random pictures and ads. Anne of Green Gables is a lovely story, but this kindle version is absolutely terrible.1Bizarre IllustrationsThe illustrations are actually random pictures that are creepy since they are in the beginning when Anne meets Mathew Cuthbert so they insinuate a romance between them. And the free audiobook is click bait to set you up to download an app and give your email address to spammers. Screen shots of the "illustrations" below.1Beautifully written, timeless books. Includes "Windy Poplars" and "Ingleside"!How glad I am that I grew up before "reading experts" decided that a young reader can enjoy only books which are "relevant" - in other words, books which act as a mirror to the child's own circumstances. I don't remember reading a single book when I was growing up that resembled my life as a 1950's kid growing up in a working class family in a suburb in a medium-sized Southern town with parents and siblings and pets. I was living that life. Why would I need or want to read about it?To me, reading was (and is) escapism and no adult ever tried to tell me otherwise. I assume they thought that reading about other times and other cultures would add to my knowledge and sharpen my imagination. I read Nancy Drew and Tarzan and historical novels and romances and biographies and a copy of 1984 that I found in the attic. And I read and loved the "Anne" books.The poignant story of an orphaned girl born fifty years before I arrived on earth was as real to me as my own life. The setting on a farming island community in Canada was quaint, but the themes and characters were familiar. Which is another way of saying that they were universal and timeless. The people in the Anne books dressed differently and talked differently, but I had no trouble recognizing and understanding their dreams and aspirations, their anger and pettiness, their generosity and jealousy.My sisters and I read and loved and shared them and 60 years later we sometimes say, "Do you remember when Mrs. Lynde said....?" or "Doesn't that remind you of the time that Gilbert and Anne....?" We had no trouble at all "relating" to those books and I wish that the author knew how much enjoyment they gave us.I can (and do) still read them and in some ways my enjoyment is deeper. Although the author was a relatively young woman when she wrote the earliest of the series, she had grown up with old relatives and was capable of painting them realistically and lovingly. The generations weren't segregated as they are today and children and old people were often close companions and allies. What a wonderful way of life.When I first got my Kindle, I down-loaded a collection, but it lacked ANNE OF WINDY POPLARS and ANNE OF INGLESIDE, which are two of my favorites. I know now that the author wrote the first book of the series (ANNE OF GREEN GABLES) in 1908 and (following up on its popularity) continued with ANNE OF AVONLEA (the story of Anne's two years as a village "school ma'am") in 1909, ANNE OF THE ISLAND (the story of Anne's four college years) in 1915 and ANNE'S HOUSE OF DREAMS (the story of Anne's early years as a wife and mother) in 1917. Two books that dealt primarily with Anne and Gilbert's grown children (RAINBOW VALLEY and RILLA OF INGLESIDE) appeared in 1919 and 1921.Then the author left the series for more than a decade. It wasn't until the 1930's that she went back and told the story of Anne's three years as a high school principal (ANNE OF WINDY POPLARS) and the story of her young family growing up (ANNE OF INGLESIDE.) Those two books are not yet in the public domain and I don't know why they are offered for free in this collection, but I'm glad to have all of the books together with a fine interactive chapter of contents.I re-read WINDY POPLARS and I still think it's a delightful book. Times have changed, but there are still wealthy, influential families who think they are above the rules and children from poor families struggling to over-come huge obstacles. There are still teachers who pour their hearts into their jobs and resentful ones who wish they could be somewhere, anywhere, else. There are tragedies and frustrations and some people deal with them wisely and others foolishly. Lucy Maud Montgomery had her own problems in life, but her belief in the value of doing your best, cheerfully and generously, shines through her stories. Her observations are sharp and humorous, but never vicious or unkind. These books are not out-dated, but as relevant today as when they were written.5
