One thought on “Before Green Gables

  1. My actual rating 1 2 starI love the whole Anne of Green Gables series by L.M Lucy Maude Montgomery I have read them all so many times I practically have them memorized, so I was very interested in exploring Anne s earlier life I was very disappointed.One thing I love about the original books is the innocence of the writing Anne of Green Gables was originally published in 1908 Now they are historical fiction, but were written as contemporary fiction.It is obvious that this book was written by a 2 [...]

  2. As a huge fan of Anne as a girl, the adult in me did not want to spoil any of my memories by picking up this prequel commissioned for the 100th anniversary of Anne of Green Gables As a librarian, I felt it was my duty to suck it up and read I was not disappointed.Before Green Gables seems to stay close to Anne s own description of her life before arriving at Green Gables but it s been a few years since I last read it, so purists may have gripes I didn t notice It opens with the romance of her pa [...]

  3. Can a gifted and spirited young soul shine in spite of a terrible home environment I was curious to learn how the author would describe Anne Shirley s birth and orphaned childhood and end up with the lovable and spunky girl we all know from Anne of Green Gables I d say that Budge Wilson has done a good job writing in the style of L.M Montgomery A few scattered items in the writing indicate a 21st Century author unlike L.M Montgomery However, I m not complaining since I am a 21st Century reader.T [...]

  4. Okay, I stopped reading this about halfway through It was a sweet tribute to the Anne of Green Gables series, but I wasn t wowed by the execution This story takes place when Anne is a young orphan, before she goes to her permanent home I just found the character of Anne to bewrong She s talking like a grownup at age 6ah, right I decided to stop reading, and just pretend this prequel never happened.

  5. My wife and I spent our honeymoon on Prince Edward Island and, there, I was introduced to Anne Shirley and Lucy Maud Montgomery, and her Anne books I enjoyed them very much, so when I heard that a prequel was being published to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the publication ofAnne of Green Gables, I picked it up as soon as it came into my local library.This book is clearly very well researched, giving Anne s background leading up to the beginning of Lucy Maud Montgomery s original series It [...]

  6. For all of those Anne of Green Gable fan out there, this is a great book I felt it blended seamlessly with the original series I m not sure why it s not considered a children s book, other than I m sure that it was marketed to reach those of us who are nostalgic and sentimental about Anne I felt that the author was true to the story and characters It was a pleasant and fun read.

  7. Actually, I want to give it 3.5 It s not perfect Anne starts speaking like an 11 year old when she s like 3, there isn t anything especially innovative, and there are some mindsets and turns of phrases that felt anachronistic but in general I liked this a lot than I thought I would It almost ended up on my Abandoned shelf, but I wanted to keep reading about Anne s childhood And the end result was that I got super re energized to reread the actual Anne series, to the point that I started digging [...]

  8. I enjoyed this book because it gave me alook at what Anne Shirley s life could have been like before.This book answered all my question about her and the formative years Sometimes I had to put the book down as I was crying Ohh, Anne It explained so much about how her character came to be and her strong will determination.Thank you, Budge Wilson Thank you for writing this book cause it taught me a lot about life.

  9. An unrelentingly grim discourse on poverty turning people abusive and unloving, and on having many children ruins women s lives with discursions about pre eclampsia and postnatal depression is not really what I was hoping for in Anne profic The constant excusing of male violence towards women was just the icing on the cake There is also the huge issue that almost all the nice characters are on a higher class stratum than the nasty ones, giving another unfortunate message.To top it off, Anne is a [...]

  10. This is a prequel to the Anne books authorised by the LM Montgomery estate The author has done her homework, with things that we know Anne likes after being taken in by Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert being shown to be in evidence in her early life The things that Anne tells Marilla about her early life in Anne of Green Gables are shown in this book as best I can remember I haven t read the first book for a while now.It is not quite in the same vein as the Anne books, as it feels a little like con [...]

  11. Anne s life in Nova Scotia before she moved to Prince Edward Island enthralled me The story starts off with her parents, Walter and Bertha Shirley and the birth of their daughter I was intrigued by the various ways Anne takes after her parents and yet was her own unique self I loved listening to the audio of her developing into the precocious child that we have known and loved for many years There is much tragedy in Anne s short life Life at the Thomas s, the Hammond s, and the orphanage were ve [...]

  12. Some prequels shouldn t be written at all they may be ok run of the mill novels, but they don t live up to the originals Some require you to suspend what you know about the original books so you don t scream NO Ashley s eyes weren t blue as you readBefore Green Gables is NOT one of those This book takes very few liberties with what we already know about Anne with an e, and provides a generous history for the beleoved heroine I was entranced by the description of Anne s parents and their life bef [...]

  13. I ve been a fan of Anne Shirley for longer than I can remember I think it began with Megan Follows and PBS It continued with a hardback illustrated copy that my grandmother gave me for Christmas I read all 8 books of the series finally about a year ago So when I heard that a prequel was out granted by another author I knew I had to get my hands on it.Before Green Gables by Budge Wilson is that prequel It tells the story of Anne s life before Marilla, Matthew, and Gilbert Blythe The story begins [...]

  14. 2010 74 Seseorang dibentuk oleh kehidupannya, apa apa yang dilaluinyaBuat penggemar Anne, the little girl with red hair, buku ini sangat menarik untuk dibaca Rentang waktu penulisannya, seratus tahun sejak Anne muncul di Green Gables, sangat jauh, sehingga amat tidak mungkin Budge Wilson meminta pendapat Lucy Montgomery tentang masa kecil Anne Selama ini kita tahu kehidupan Anne sebelumnya hanya dari celotehannya saja, bahwa ia dari rumah yatim piatu, pernah mengasuh anak kembar, sehingga tidak [...]

  15. Eh the book did get better towards the end But there were a fair amount of problems with the book First, I listened to the audiobook and the reader was good except for baby Anne s voice which she made sound like a female version of a chucky doll It was creepy and incredibly fake It made me dislike her and whoever allowed her to continue reading it Seriously It was so bad there aren t even words for it But as she got older the fake puffed cheek serial killer high pitched female voice faded into a [...]

  16. As I have enjoyed the Anne of Green Gables series since I was a young girl, I was excited to hear that a prequel was out However, I am always wary of books about beloved characters NOT written by the original author So, I was prepared not to get too emotionally attached from the get go.I needn t have worried Budge Wilson does a tremendous job of showing us Anne s early upbringing and marrying it with the Anne with an e we come to know and love in the Green Gables series If you love the Anne girl [...]

  17. I would not recommend this book to anyone except fans of the original work It is a book that does not live up to its promise As you read it, you may realize that you loved the book Anne of Green Gables as much for L.M Montgomery s superb writing as for the character of Anne With a pedestrian writing style, the magic of the story fades.Several years ago I started searching out every Montgomery book and short story that I could find, and was captivated by her excellent characterizations Author Wi [...]

  18. This book was a delightful rendering of Anne s childhood before Green Gables I was surprised to read book reviews that thought that this book was depressing because of all the misfortunes that befell Anne in her childhood Weren t misfortunes Anne s lot before she arrived at Green Gables Yet inspite of her misfortunes, it is Anne s ability to use her imagination to get her through the depths of despair and to find joy and goodness in the people and world that surrounds her which makes her story s [...]

  19. As a prequel to the LMM books, this doesn t exactly stand up with the Green Gables series Written as historical fiction rather than contemporaneously, this book has some problems with characterization and tone as well as historical details There were, perhaps, too many characters that were not fully sketched for the reader, and even our beloved heroine was a bit one dimensional This is not an intro to the Anne books, and probably won t be of interest to the casual reader But I did read it rather [...]

  20. Anne with an e is one of my favorite literary characters of all time, she is up there with Hermonie and Scarlett O Hara I loved learning about Anne before Prince Edward Island Even though she is fictional, I admire her ability to remain positive through constant adversity I love this series, I recommend it to all

  21. Using the allusions to Anne Shirley s childhood garnered from the original L M Montgomery stories, Budge Wilson gives us her rendition of Anne s life prior to her arrival at Green Gables The book opens before Anne is even born, allowing us a glimpse of Anne s parents and their idyllic marriage These passages are slow but the story picks up speed after Anne s birth, which leaves her mother weak and susceptible to a fever that sweeps through their town in Nova Scotia and ends up claiming her life [...]

  22. It s not perfect I don t think there is any way a modern author could accomplish the doubly impossible trick of going back in time and jumping into another author s head I honestly can t imagine the book being any better, even while I note its flaws.One of the difficulties of imagining Anne as she must have been before she arrived in Avonlea, is that Anne was extraordinary at age 11 What forces caused her to become that 11 year old child Who influenced her, what events shaped her In trying to an [...]

  23. When I saw this book at the store, I was immediately excited, then wary As a devoted fan of the Lucy Maude Montgomery s treasured series, I wondered if this book could live up to the true Anne books.I was pleasantly surprised Authorized by the Montgomery heirs, Budge Wilson did a good job of capturing Anne s spirit through her turbulent upbringing I wondered as I began reading how a story we already know as sad could be an uplifting book but the author reminds us that Anne has always been good a [...]

  24. We know how critical one of us bookworms get when our favourite books are adapted into a film But what happens when a different author writes the prequel of one of your favourite book I m one of those people who needs to watch every film adaptation and read every prequel even if it was written by another author, even when I knew how bad it s going to turn out If you re a fan of the Anne of Green Gables series, do read this book It s fascinating to find out the events which happened before the or [...]

  25. I was excited when I found this book, because I love the Anne of Green Gables series However, this book was a disappointment The story line was just o.k and I found it to be very wordy and very redundant We all know that Anne is a talker, but when the author is not showing us Anne s thoughts or what she s saying, she doesn t need to repeat the same things over and over There were several times when I was able to skip a large paragraph or even an entire page in order to just get on with the story [...]

  26. yes 5 I do not think that I could have asked for any from this book I didn t know how much I missed Anne I also would not have thought that it would be possible to bring her back to life, but the tone, the pace of this book was just perfect This book was pretty tragic, Anne did not have a nice beginning to her life This sad story on it s own would have been unenjoyable, but knowing the ending that happens in the original Green Gables just makes this story perfect It fills in holes and questions [...]

  27. Walter and Bertha and baby Anne were too perfect, which made some dichotomies overly noticeable It tried too hard to tie in with the main books, leading to a lot of repetitive scenes for those already familiar with the series, but it was interesting to read one take on the what ifs of Anne s childhood before Green Gables That was really the only reason I finished it.Edited to add I must have blocked out my first read because somehow I checked it out again My second foray did not improve my view. [...]

  28. A breathtaking look at the beginnings of the ANNE OF GREEN GABLES series, we see her parents and their lives before being touched by Anne We follow Anne through family after family up till she comes to Green Gables Wilson s storytelling and writing expertise is a gem, the characters are well rounded and detailed, their hardships not taken lightly throughout the whole story I ll definitely be rereading BEFORE GREEN GABLES again.

  29. I adored this book It was totally Anne worthy and made me nostalgic to re read the series.The only downside is that my heart was aching the whole time that I read the book It is so sad to imagine that any child could and can have such a difficult life It was made even heartbreaking by the fact that in spite of everything that life threw at her, Anne remained a happy and hopeful child.

  30. As an avid Anne fan, i found this a very loveable prequel to Montgomery s series Although no writing could ever be quite like Montgomery s, this book is written simply and convincingly from the child Anne s perspective A charming, enjoyable read, which introduces us to Anne s parents before their deaths, and takes us to the brink of her meeting with Matthew Cuthbert.
