ANNE OF GREEN GABLES by L. M. Montgomery (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below). One of the most beloved heroines in all of literature, Anne Shirley is a wildly imaginative, red-headed chatterbox of a girl trying to fit into the narrow confines of Victorian expectations. Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves. NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio's Earphones® Award-winning narrator Susan O'Malley. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here. “Susan O’Malley reads this wonderful book with great sympathy, bringing Anne’s world to life.”—Looking Glass Review •EXPERIENCE.

RATING: 4+ Delightful and essential listening for children and teens. ___________________ Anne Shirley, the orphan child who brings happiness and love into the lives of her foster family, is one of the most beloved heroines in all literature. This wildly imaginative, red-headed chatterbox tries to fit into the narrow confines of Victorian expectations, but her exuberant spirit keeps leaping delightfully beyond the bounds. When Marilla Cuthbert and her brother Matthew find that they are getting too old to work the farm by themselves, they decide to adopt an orphan boy to help out. To their dismay, they are sent a girl by mistake—an impetuous girl with a hopeless lack of manners. Pragmatic Marilla is determined to return her, but warm-hearted Matthew urges that she be given a chance to prove herself. The challenge laid down for this eleven-year-old girl—and the mishaps that befall her before she wins the heart of her foster mother—make for a delightfully charming story.
