I really enjoyed this series; all 8 books! The last book caught me by surprise. I wasn't expecting a historical fiction (which is my fav), but that is exactly what the last book is. I am sure that LMM didn't expect to write a historical fiction book, but when the Great War (WWI) broke out she didn't have much choice. I love the way the last book ended. It was so sweet it left me smiling for a while. Today I found myself wishing I had another Anne of Green Gables book to read. The only book I found difficult to get through was number 6. It focuses on Anne's kids a lot, in fact the last 3 books are about her kids. The 6th one was some what dull though. There was no real plot, just discriptions of them as they played. As a mother I love to watch my kids play, but as a reader I need more of a plot. Overall the series is a must read!

I have a feeling I will love them, so I went ahead and bought the series. I figured later Anna can read them too.

Kim the girls loved the book, I was surprised at how much they got into it. we are reading the Harry Potter series, right now, but we will probably go back to this series at some point.
