I don t often give books five stars and as I neared the end of this book, I gave some thought to how many stars this book deserved I ve read the Anne of Green Gables series once before over twenty years ago In spite of the amount of time that has elapsed, I clearly recall reading the last book in the series very slowly and thinking to myself, I will be so sad to not be able to read about Anne any When I picked up this book a few days ago to re read it, I found within a few chapters that it was like seeing an old friend Anne was even delightful than I recalled, since I now have daughters who share her scope for imagination, her penchant for large words and her zest for life Reading about Anne s appreciation for life s loveliness made me appreciate my daughters and long to live in the moment myself So, I decided that a book that feels like an old friend after twenty years deserves five stars.Anne Shirley must be one of the most delightful characters ever written, largely because she is far from perfect She makes mistakes, as we all do, but her mistakes are much funnier than my own feel and she makes me see the value in learning from each of them, laughing at them and moving on Like my middle daughter, there is no lukewarm with Anne I love that she approaches life enthusiastically, despite have spent a decade belonging to no one.I also like that Anne talks straightforwardly about wanting, seeking and building friendships Even now, I am hesitant, awkward and scattershot at building relationships I may meet someone who seems a kindred spirit, but lack the time or, let s be honest, sheer boldness to approach them and seek to build a friendship We see Anne seek and build relationships not only upon her arrival in Avonlea, but during her time at Queens.One reasons I re read this book was because two friends recommended it for it s fluency in writing dialogue Unlike Little Women, which I attempted to read for the writing, this book did not disappoint The dialogue sounds exactly like each character would sound and it flows smoothly from narration to dialogue and back In fact, I m baffled that Little Women routinely makes top 100 lists while Anne of Green Gables is nowhere to be found on the lists of must read classics Unlike the Little Women characters who are archetypes rather than three dimensional characters, Anne is a bold a female character who refuses to be categorized That s exactly why I love her and love this book. Dear old world, she murmured, you are very lovely and I am glad to be alive in you This quote really accurately depicts how Anne lives her life and what makes you love her as a character She s stubborn and makes mistakes, but she also has a huge imagination and sees the world as beautiful and full of possibilities.I loved this SO much and I m sad I never read it before I love all the characters and the plot, and it s really fun to see Anne grow up through this book The writing is also really really lovely.I can t wait to read the sequels and follow Anne s story This has made it up to my favorite books of all time list, that s for sure.REREAD NOTESI didn t think I could love this book but somehow I do I AM SO EMOTIONAL. How do you review a book that transcends books Do you ever love a book so much that it doesn t feel like a book You re so immersed and reading is so effortless that you don t feel like you re reading at all The characters are real enough to be people, and their problems and happinesses feel like they re happening to you That was me with this book.Which is all well and good until it comes down to reviewing it Basically what I m saying is I m at a loss for words I m saying I have nothing TO say This is just too damn good.I didn t read this as a kid, or for many years after I didn t think I d be interested I had a copy for years with no intention of picking it up, because I am shallow as hell and only bought a copy in the first place because it s pretty In my defense look HOW pretty Honestly, I can t remember why I decided to read it in the first place.But I am very, very, VERY glad I did.I love Anne so much I love Green Gables I love Diana, I love Matthew and Marilla, later on I love Gilbert although I don t really understand how people love him from this book alone Not much to see After reading this, I was obligated to chase the high of the reading experience by picking up the next two installments as quickly as possible, and they were just as good Mostly But still an unparalleled level of good.I guess what I m trying to carry across here is that somehow this hundred year old children s classic about an orphan girl moving to a rural island in Canada was one of the most unputdownable books I ve ever read.And also the writing is as pretty as the cover.Bottom line I want to live in this book, please and thank you fun fact joy exists as a concrete object, and it s called Anne of Green Gables.THIS BOOK IS PURE JOY.review to come
