I like the Story Girl, but the theme of The Golden Road is so great. Montgomery called childhood "the golden road", and in this, Bev the grown-up narrator was able to pinpoint the time when they were all just about to leave the golden road. The children only had a small hint at the time that something was about to change, but the adult, looking back, knows.

It's one of those Montgomery books that strikes you while you're reading it as a child, but really reaches you when you read it as an adult.

SNIFFFF. I'm getting sentimental reading this book.

What I love:
1. THOSE KIDS. I love them. Dan, annoying as ever, Felicity, bossy as ever, Cecily, sweet as ever, Peter, lovely as ever, Sara Ray (crying, as ever), Beverly, Felix, and The Story Girl. I love these. WHY DO THEY GROW UP. Nooooo. I consider this ending a sad one, you know.
2. Their magazine. THEIR MAGAZINE. I *love* their magazine. It's the funniest thing ever. My favourite section is Cecily fashion bit. I love that. And the commentary

Saya tidak pernah mengira buku klasik bisa membuat saya tertawa. Menyentuh, mungkin. Indah, bisa jadi. Bertele-tele, kadang begitu. Tapi siapa sangka bab-bab awal buku ini saja sudah membuat saya tertawa, dan akhirnya tamat dalam satu hari. Berkat terjemahan yang apik, kisah anak-anak Carlisle ini jadi terasa hidup dan lucu dalam bahasa Indonesia-nya. Celetukan-celetukan mereka serta balas-membalas ejekan di antara mereka sungguh menghibur, walaupun saya jadi makin sebal sama Felicity yang sok p ...more

It was a delightful book, I thought it had a little more depth than the first one, though I couldn't say which one is best, it was maybe a little less cheerful, and I thought it so sad how it ended, just the last words. I really enjoyed reading about the love story of the Awkward Man. I really liked the theme of growing up, and how Beverly says that when we are young, we walk the Golden Road.

The Golden Road is even more episodic than The Story Girl, perhaps, and maybe that's why I took a fairly long time reading it, returning to it every now and then when I felt like this kind of reading. I loved it, nevertheless, the stories that were at times heartwarming, at times wistful or even scary, but always have that combination of life and beauty which is characteristic of Montgomery. There's a bittersweet air of the end of childhood, with the narrator Beverley looking back to those years ...more

Saya ga rela buku ini tamat. Rasanya kata-kata ga bakal bisa menerjemahkan reaksi-reaksi yang bergejolak di dalam diri saya mengenai buku ini. Singkatnya; keren, keren banget.
Buku ini bikin saya dipenuhi oleh rasa bahagia yang aneh. Rasanya, begitu buka buku ini kupu-kupu menebar bubuk bahagia ke muka saya.
Saya menangisi masa kanak-kanak saya, dan saya jadi lebih peka dengan alam sekitar saya. Duh, klise banget kelihatannya. Tapi bener deh, pendeskripsian dan gaya bahasa buku ini pas dan ga meny

Oh, I sooo enjoyed this sequel to "The Story Girl". Both of them together create the most delightful of books.

Now that I've finished reading it, I feel sad to leave my new friends behind. Beverley, Felix, Cecily, Peter, Felicity, Dan, Sara Ray, and, of course, Sara Stanley (better known as the Story Girl). Such charming friends that I won't soon be forgetting. Oh, and Patrick Grayfur too, for a good cat mustn't be forgotten either.

Oh, Maud, your characters live and breathe, beautiful and funny. They stay with me like no others.

Gorgeous descriptions as usual, and I really love all the little stories woven into the children's adventures, which are all both hilarious and poignant. The children bicker a lot, but it's obvious they are all fond of each other. I was touched by Felicity's sorrow at the Story Girl's departure.

I particularly like the love story of the Awkward Man, and the characters Peg Bowen and Uncle Blair. The

"Lama berselang, kita semua pernah menapakkan kaki di sebuah jalan indah keemasan. Jalanan lebar penuh kenangan, bersaput bayang-bayang dan bermandikan sinar mentari; setiap kelokan dan turunan menyajikan pesona segar dan keindahan baru bagi hati yang penuh semangat dan mata yang belum banyak melihat.

Other adventures beckon as well. One day, while Uncle Alec and Aunt Janet are away, a woman comes to visit. They assume that she is their Great-Aunt Eliza. Knowing that she is deaf, Dan makes ...more

I'm so glad that I read this book. I loved the Story Girl however I was a little disappointed when it ended; I felt there was more to tell. So when I read this book I was much relieved. Of course there were more stories to tell! You can't read the Story Girl without reading this book and vice versa.

This book made me reflect on my own childhood and all the good times I had exploring the woods and building forts. It actually gave me more drive to create lasting memories with my children. It's such

It took me a while while reading "The Story Girl", but by now I have fully warmed up to the Kings, who are a lovely bunch, all of them. Each child's distinctive personality comes through beautifully in this book, and they're such fun. I thoroughly enjoyed this story, which is just a long homage to childhood and growing up in PEI. I actually think it's one of the funniest LMM books I've read, the newspaper editions in particular I always looked forward to. Maud Montgomery has done it again, makin ...more

The Golden Road is the magical and melancholy sequel to The Story Girl, in which Bev, Dan, Cecily, Sara Ray, Sara Stanley, and Carlisle's other colorful characters return for more misadventures.
L.M. Montgomery's writing is lovely and evocative as usual, though it sometimes crosses over into "purple prose" territory, especially in Blair Stanley's elaborate verbal observations. The characters are lovable as ever(though Felix is quite a flat character and doesn't really do much of anything), the

A word is dead,
When it is said,
Some say,
I say it just,
Begins to live,
That day. E. Dickenson.
L.M. Montgomery certainly seemed to live by that poem, because when you read her words you yourself are transported to her world. She writes and it's like your going home, but as if you haven't been there in a while and you are ecstatic at seeing your old haunts again. You feel in her writing the joy of youth,the pain of loss, the expectation of the future. You look at the future without f

Saya yakin siapa pun yang membaca novel ini akan merindukan masa kanak-kanaknya. Setiap manusia pasti akan melalui jalan keemasannya, tidak ada jalan untuk kembali, hanya hamparan jauh penuh perjuangan mencapai impian.

Saya sendiri meneteskan air mata saking terbawa suasana 'The Golden Road'. Memang tidak ada lagi jalan menuju masa lalu yang penuh makna

I did want to like this book, and overall it isn't bad. It certainly isn't a two star to the same level as some other books I have rated the same. But, at the end of the day, I was kinda bored throughout this. It's possible that reading all of the L M Montgomery books one after another might not be the best option so take this with a pinch of salt.

I am still confused as to why this book is included in an Anne of Green Gables collection - and I doubt I will ever make sense of that. Also, having n

What a truly delightful little story. I'm referring not only to The Golden Road but also its first part The Story Girl, which should be read first to truly appreciate this novel, not to mention to be able to make sense of it.

I find The Story Girl series to be light, fun and full of imagination. I've grown to love Lucy Maud Montgomery's writing style and The Golden Road offers you plenty of pleasant reading without forcing you to get into too much character history. It's kind of like diving into

As with all Montgomery's series, I liked the second book more than the first. The characters were a bit more adult, and we found out more about them and got deeper into them. Again, the Finnish translation felt a bit too modern for me and somewhat annoying ("Meidän Lehti" and the other missing possessive suffixes, argh!), but I'm starting to get used to it.

I was worried sick about poor, sweet Cecily. I skipped to the end because I couldn't stand it---I had to find out what happened to her!

I thought the Peg Bowen character was a nice and creepy touch. At the beginning, I thought it would turn she was really just a good and misunderstand old lady, but Montgomery really made her into a hag of sorts.

I love cats, but man did I get hella sick of the travails of Paddy. He's the most hypochondriac cat in the history of literature, not to mention being the only plot-driver. I also get irritated with these vague diagnoses plus premonitions of death in characters. You can't 'look consumptive'. Consumption is TB, and that doesn't just hang around for decades. It's a virulent infection that can kill you even in 2011, let alone 1911. If you caught it as a child or a baby you'd be dead and what's more ...more

March 2010 review:

The Golden Road is the sequel to The Story Girl, but not nearly as good. Most of it is boring and kind of sad. The Story girl and her cousins are all together for the last time on their Uncle Alec’s farm and they decide to edit their own newspaper (parts of this are really funny, and probably my favorite part about the book). At the end of the year, during which they have had many adventures, the Story girl returns to Europe with her artists father, and Beverly and Felix go ba

Few books capture the innocence of childhood as do the works of L.M. Montgomery. I loved her books as a little girl, and I love them still now. This one ends bittersweet - childhood innocence giving way to adulthood.

I grew up watching Sullivan Production's Road to Avonlea and because of this my understanding of the King family is messed up. However, if there is one constant it is that Felicity is as bossy and opinionated in both the book and the show. I feel like the book could have ended on a happier note. I also get that it was never intended for the Story Girl to remain an island girl. Unlike the show, the end is pretty sad.
As always LMM's descriptions of Avonlea/Carlisle are spot on: foggy mornings and

A lovely ending to a delightful coming of age story. I thought it was so fun to experience the adventures of the children as they traveled down the "golden road", and found myself laughing and crying along with the characters as their childhoods came to a bittersweet ending. This book had more depth than the first and the last few chapters, including the one where the Story Girl makes predictions, are absolutely thrilling and chilling.

None of L.M. Montgomery's other books will ever outdo the Anne series, but this was still a beautiful book to read. Her descriptions are so vivid, they are almost poetic in nature. Her characters are real, with realistic faults and strong points. Her description of the "Golden Road" being one you walk through childhood, made me sad for today's youngsters, because in many ways modern children never get to experience this golden road, as life is so completely different nowadays and children grow u ...more
