Anne fans, I INSIST that you try Emily at some point.
I love the Emily books so much. Her passion and her dreams, along with her dignity, were expressed in a way that really appealed to me when I read them as an impressionable teenager. The formative years of every girl's life are filled with wild hopes and worries and exhilaration, and as an adult, I re-read ...more

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 Emily is more brooding and withdrawn like me, whereas Anne is someone I wish I was like.

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

The beauty of the world despite its flaws and evils (which Montgomery also shows). The world in this story is not sugary or happy-ever-after. I am pleasantly reminded about that and somehow I think I enjoyed this more now than I would as a child.
The fairytale-like images of Emily's (and Montgomery's) world and the words to describe it, make me want to look for the best in my ...more
It is of course a bit sentimental, given its period, but I enjoyed it enough to continue the series in the future. I liked the way that Emily matured during the course of the story, and the mix of characters with whom she interacted as she found her place in her world.
And it's not just about Emily: Ilse, Teddy and Perry make it a strong quartet, laying good foundations for the story to come.
This has to be LMM's best series. There is nothing twee about Emily. I could have done without the ...more
