Anne of Windy Poplars - Review
Anne of Windy Poplars by L.M. Montgomery
Rating: 5 stars
Description: After graduating from Redmond College Anne takes a position as principal of Summerside High School while waiting for Gilbert to finish medical school. Friends are made, adventures are had and challenges are overcome. It's told in a combination of narrative and letters to Gilbert.
Genre: Children/YA, Classic
My Impression: When I first read this series this was my least favorite book. I was ready for her and Gilbert to get married already. I didn't reread it for probably close to 20 years because of that but was amazed how much I loved it when I picked it up again. This is Anne at her best. She is still Anne but her poetic way of speaking has been toned down. The book has a good mix of touching stories and funny stories. Also, if my memory serves me correctly, this is the last book that Green Gables plays a major role
Would I Read More of this Series/Author?: Yes, this is my 2nd one this month and I'm about 50 pages into my 3rd one for the month.
Would I Recommend this Book?: Yes, even to those who don't particularly care for Anne.
