** spoiler alert ** This is one of my favorite volumes of the Anne series. I think I enjoy it for the romance, the friendships, and the number of proposals Anne racks up even if several are not very complimentary. Update: Well, the end is a little mushier than I remembered with Anne and Gilbert walking together and building their fantasy life while talking together as no real people ever would. The proposal from the hired boy completely makes up for it though!

Listened to Blackstone Audio's CD edition narrated by Susan O'Malley. I don't think O'Malley's great so far, she doesn't do a very good job of differentiating among the girls' voices, but I like her better than Barbara Caruso - at least she pronounces Avonlea like a normal person and Davy's voice is much better in this one. After finishing, I'd say O'Malley does a competant job.

Previously read many times.
