really liked it
bookshelves: youth-fiction

Montgomery always manages to add an interesting new character and this time it's in the form of a seemingly flaky, flirtatious college coed (who actually does have brains but never seems to show them in her conversation) whom Anne befriends. She actually changes more than Anne in this final volume and, to be honest, I began to tire of Anne's obtuseness with regard to poor Gilbert.

(By the way, I hope young men would no longer consider such long engagements. Those were all very well in a day where Victorian morals and scruples ruled, but I fear they court either eventual boredom or disaster in this day and age.)

Anyway, I knew Anne would have to be hit over the head to finally come to her senses, and I'm glad the author eventually brought us to that point. Still, it's difficult to leave Anne and all her friends on Prince Edward Island...unless anyone knows of any more books in the series.
