The following is an honest review of Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery and my suggested age rating.
Anne has been an orphan most of her life bouncing from orphanages to foster homes. Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert are brother and sister and sole care takers of the farm Green Gables. Because they are getting older and the work is getting harder, they decide to adopt an orphan boy to help around the farm. Matthew sets off to the train station to pick up the boy but finds only a little red headed girl. The orphanage, due to a lack on communication or sheer fate, has sent Anne instead. Matthew, being tender hearted, can’t just leave her there so he decides to take her home to Marilla at Green Gables. After much trial and error, the Cuthberts decide to keep Anne and give her an opportunity for a real home, one that offers a huge scope for the imagination.
Review of Anne of Green Gables
I grew up on the @sullivanentertainment versions of this story. It was and still is one of my favorite comfort movies to watch. However, I felt like a bit of a fraud having never read my way through this series. This year I decided to start making my way through them and I’m so glad I did. I loved the book more than I imagined I would and have a newfound love for LM Montgomery’s writing. If you are wanting a book to take you to a completely different place in your mind, pick this one up. It will transport you to a beautiful place full of words and descriptions. And maybe you too will find a kindred spirit in Anne of Green Gables.
Age Rating of Anne of Green Gables
This book does mention orphanages, foster homes, neglect, and some verbal/alcoholic abuse. It is not central to the story. I would give this book an age rating of 10+.
