With all of the pluck and charm of its eponymous young hero, Rachel McAdams (The Notebook, Spotlight, Midnight in Paris) delivers a spectacular reading of Montgomery's beloved bildungsroman. In moments both funny and bittersweet, McAdams' voice is imbued with the spark that has made Anne a much-loved symbol of individualism and cheer for over a century. In this story of "kindred spirits", McAdams' touching and heartfelt narration proves she is just that - bonded on a deep level to this shimmering classic.
When aging brother and sister Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert decide to adopt an orphan boy to help with chores around their farm, Green Gables on Prince Edward Island, neither is prepared for the feisty and imaginative redheaded girl who is mistakenly brought to them instead. Nor are they prepared for the way in which she will change their lives. Through a series of hilarious misadventures, Anne's uncompromising spirit makes her a striking presence in the close-knit village, bringing new friendships, first crushes, and, for her foster parents, a love and openness unimaginable before her arrival.
Rachel McAdams is perfect for this.
Anne of Green Gables is one of my favorite books. Rachel McAdam’s love for the story and her amazing voice are the perfect combination. I have listen to this more times that I can count. The only problem is that it has ruined me for other narrators. I REALLY hope Rachel with continue with the other books in series and with more books in general.
So Well Described!!
The speaker has such a beautiful voice, and paints a silhouette of this extremely well written story of Anne, from green gables, with an adventure of creativity! (And if you read, or listened to the whole book, "I found it quite scrumptious!")
I absolutely love this! One of my all time favorite stories. Rachel McAdams' narration is perfection.
Also, for those experiencing issues with the book, the default beginning chapter is pretty far in the book. You'll have to go to the menu to begin at Chapter 1.
