This book had some entertaining vignettes--one that had me laughing out loud for several minutes straight--but it fell far short of the previous books. Anne needs balance--Marilla, Gilbert, Diana, Mrs. Lynde, and Davy were such important characters, all of them with real personalities and interesting things to add. None of them were in this book! The narrator, whose wise presence is such a comfort and point of humor in the other books, is even less prevalent, as much of the book consists of letters written by Anne to Gilbert. I feel any effort by L.M. Montgomery is better than average, but I was disappointed in this one. Too much Anne, not enough depth, very little plot. I might skip this one (with the exception of the very humorous vignette) when I reread the series in the future.

Stacey I agree with you whole-heartedly! This was my least favourite as well.
