The relationship between Anne and Gilbert is phenomenal and a definite reflection of my own personal relationship with my boyfriend. The last chapter of each book makes me cry each time I read it. My boyfriend also is handsome, high achieving, and sweet. And I have red hair and he likes my nose of all things. The Anne story is so similar to my own (college included, but not the orphan part) that it has been a favorite since early childhood. Amazing, huh? I would love to hear others' replies how the Anne story has touched their lives in one way or another.
Anne of the Island transports me back to another
place and time. I'm surprised that even now Anne
of the Island still holds an attraction for me. I
enjoy the flowery language, and of course, the

This story is my most favorite among all the Anne series!!!! It is mostly about romance, and i just love ramoance stories! i really like the thing going on with Gilbert Blyth, Roy Gardiner, and Anne. She has like, i think, five suitors! But the main thing is Gilbert, Roy and Anne. i agree with the others that this book is a must read!!!!
Lucy's books inspired me to have more of an imagination. Her books are spectacular. I get bummed when my mom tells me I have to stop because it's full of suprises! I wish I was like Anne and be missed and loved by many!!!
I am no longer a teenager but I was fifteen years old when I first read the story of Anne. The story captivated me and I was consumed with a desire to learn more about Anne's creator, Lucy Maud Montgomery. Only recently have I obtained her journals and though "Maud" denied it at times, it is easy to see that she was, in her heart, Anne. I think Anne is Maud's life as Maud wished it to be. Maud Montgomery was a gifted writer and a complex person. Under the sunny surface of her stories one can find the fragments of her own pain. But more than this the stories Maud wrote are a celebration of life. Every sensitive, life-loving girl must have a little Anne in her soul. I think Maud sensed this in some way with that amazing ability she had to understand people. I wish this site would add her journals as well as "The Blue Castle"
This book is a great trilogy to the other two!!! It is a definite must read book. Outstanding work by Lucy Maud Montgomery. Especially the last chapter!!! This book is and overall must read!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh my gosh! This is SUCH a good book! It talks about love, love, love, and Anne, Gilbert, and Roy. Anne has like 5 proposals! But Gil wins!!!
WOW! I mean, what can i say, you have really done it this time, Maud Miester. I mean Anne of the island - peace out. It really took my breath away. Gilbert Blyth is like a giant spool of thread - so mystical and gracious. This is a must read for everyone who can. I hate everyone that puts down this book - period.
A DEFENITE must read!I have it and it is definitely one of my all time favorites!Especialy the wole thing that goes on with Gilbert Blyth.Iam just saying that this book is a must read!!!
