I also love Teddy Kent. Such a romantic character, and how lovely to have your childhood friend be the love of your life!

I love her spunk, though. When she hid under the table to listen to the family conclave and was retorting furiously to them in her mind, I immediately thought, "I like this girl!" I also feel like I relate more to Emily than to Anne. Emily is more brooding and withdrawn like me, whereas Anne is someone I wish I was like.
Delight and magic are fo...more

Altogether I found the story-line very beautifully written. I prefer Anne to Emily but there was something special about Emily in the way she acted and talked. She was special. When I read the book I felt as if I was Emily. Truly, I did. In the dairy with Aunt Laura, listening to Cousi...more
dan ternayata hal itulah yang saya dapatkan. L.M. Montgomery menuliskan kalimat-kalimat yang sangat imajinatif namuh agak sulit untuk dibayangkan atau dipresentasikan didalam ruang imajinatif otak saya, sehingga saya perlu diam bebrapa saat, membaca kal...more
This morning I noticed Mel Campbell's review of the book come up in my newsfeed, and my first reaction was a sharp intake of breath--a kind of preemptive wince born of the idea that anyone might, in any way, not love Emily wholeheartedly, or love her the way that I do. Clearly Emily's passionate loves and jealousies were something I was drawn to as a child!
As an adult, I enjoy the latter Emily books more--Emily is less dreamy, more pragmatic, though still drawn to making disastrously bad decisio...more
Until last year, I thought the Anne of Green Gables series was L.M Montgomery’s maste...more
That is Emily Starr talking, the young blossoming writer, that will touch your heart, with her creative and interesting, ways and ideas.
Within just the first chapter of the book, you'll already be intrigued by Emily's charm, and her topsy-turvy imagination. All through the story, Emily meets new people and friends. Some will help her on her way to becoming a writer, "a painter that uses words". Others will shoot her dreams down, as...more
Suka banget sama si Emily. Dan fantasi fantasi nya keinginan dia buat nulis. Jujur aja, awalnya agak males buat baca buku ini, kesannya gimanaa gitu tentang anak kecil yatim, pinter, dan aku awalnya pikir "duh, pasti membosankan. covernya aja membosankan". Haha, iya sih, ada kata kata "don't judge a book from it's cover", tapi kan kalo covernya gak menarik mana mau baca sinopsisnya, pegang aja ogah. Tapi buku ini exceeded my expectations. hahaha.
Suka gimana Emily mak...more
I think people identify with Emily and Anne because--well, spirited, bookish girls live on in all of us, and I'm...more
2 parts I particularly loved were the chapters regarding Father Cassidy and Mr. Carpenter. I liked Mr. Cassidy because it was just a beautifully crafted vignette. Mr. Carpenter was Emily's 2nd school teacher, and his chapter needs to be written out here for anyone involved in teaching their children. The book is worth reading for itself, but especially for the parts about how Mr. Carpenter mentored...more
I recently picked up Emily at the request of my friend who is a fellow Anne lover but admitted she really liked Emily more. It took me a few chapters to really start enjoying Emily but once I started I finished all three books within a week.
For the millions of girls who love Anne of Green Gables, this series provides a glimpse at another girl who is just a little different in the Victorian world of Prince Edward Island. Emily, although she has a good friend who reminds one of Anne a great deal, is drastically different from L.M. Montgomery's other heroine. Emily grew up with her ailing writer father, who dies, leaving her orphaned in the hands of her mother's upstanding and very proud family. Tw...more
Saya Selalu Suka Novel-novel Asing (Amerika/Inggris) yang bercerita tentang kehidupan anak-anak (terkhusus gadis kecil) yang klise dimana ibunya meninggal/ayahnya meninggal karena sakit parah dan gadis kecil itu harus diasuh oleh keluarga besarnya (salah satu dari paman dan bibinya) yang dalam hal ini sangat banyak dan tidak menaruh simpati sedikitpun pada si gadis kecil kecuali sebatas tanggung jawab dan menjaga nama baik.
Emily of New Moon juga tidak jauh berbeda dari kisah kisah klise itu (...more
I got caught up in the story of Emily by watching the Emily of New Moon series on children's television. The production is a balm for eyes longing to see expanses of water and shoreline, lush greenery, and the wardrobe. Stephen McHattie's sensitive portrayal of cousin Jimmy i...more
"Thank you," said Emily shyly, looking up at him with great grey eyes that...more
