It is Anne’s charisma and intensity, her indomitable spirit in the face of adversity, and her infectious love and need for love that have spread from one generation to the next.

Seven sequels and a century ­later, Anne is big business. For many years, Montgomery hid behind the sort of quaint, feel-good life story befitting a children’s book author. To celebrate Anne’s centennial, there are two new reissues of the original book, yearlong celebrations on Prince Edward Island (where the story is set) and, for those who can’t get enough, two prequels: Before Green Gables by the Canadian author Budge Wilson and a TV movie with Barbara Hershey and Shirley MacLaine.

I got this book because I needed one I could write in for class. However, this was the 100th time I've read it and I still love it. This is an awesome book for anyone ages 12 and up.

I am disappointed that none of the colour plates are in the Kindle version. I should have bought the paperback version. The essays are fabulous and the ability to jump to the notes at the end of each chapter is great, but the lack of images is a shame.
