I’m a big Anne of Green Gables fan.. I’ve read all the books and have enjoyed Anne’s adventures. I found this book slightly confusing and honestly boring. The book was sectioned off into little short stories. I found Montgomery’s usual descriptive language lacking as I found myself lost continually in lost in the plot. The characters were flat and not enough history was given to really develop them. I certainly wouldn’t read this book again and wouldn’t recommend this book to others.

'Anne of the Island' hovers awkwardly between subverting romanticism and embodying it, but is still the charming dreamboat I loved in elementary school. Largely responsible for the illusions I had about college life.

The stories are individually charming but too similar in aggregate. How many old maids finding love does a story collection really need, after all?

4 stars for Anne of the Island and half of the short stories. They got exhausting at the end and I definitely took my time to finish them.
