Anne of Green Gables
|Prince Edward Island|
I first read Green Gables as a child, but haven't read it for many years. I'd forgotten how funny it is, and also how moving. There is occasionally a touch of the goodie-goodie child of Victorian fiction, but generally Anne comes across as a realistic portrait of a child of her times with many of the incidents, I suspect, coming from real life.
This is definitely a series I would like to re-read/read again, never having read the full sequence. Gloriously funny, and with a big wodge of nostalgia it's a great read. Perfect for gloomy winter days, a real up-lifter.
