At the heart of this exquisite episode into Anne's life is a love story, but it's not merely of romance. Anne falls in love with college and the pursuit of intellect, and that's what makes it one of my favorite books in the series. She finds her college friends, and they form an intimate circle. She starts to write, though this gets downplayed as the book continues--which is odd, since this is one of her dearest wishes. And, yes, she learns what it means to be in love, not just in the fairy stories, but for real.

Let's get spoilery, though. Proceed only if you want to be spoiled.



In the past, I've given Anne a hard time about refusing Gilbert the first time, but rereading it since I've been married has given me a little perspective. I have the feeling that if Gilbert had been alive 100 years later, that proposal would not have taken place, because the pressure to marry would have been less existent and he would have seen how very friend-driven Anne was. I think he fell into the trap of social conditioning. Anne, as it was, was not ready to marry *anyone* at that time in her life, and I don't think she would have been happy had she accepted Gilbert then. She had to realize of her own accord that she was in love with him, and to his credit, he backed off once she said no and only tried again when given a friend's encouragement that Anne would possibly be more receptive.

I also think that Royal Gardner exists to show that a *physical* ideal is not the same as your *actual* ideal, because good grief, that man sounded hideously boring. I believe, too, that Anne needed a relationship with a flat and uninteresting character to contrast Gilbert's vibrant and supportive personality. Had she married Roy, she would have been thrust into the role of society wife, for which she was entirely unsuited and unprepared. And that's an alternate-universe fanfic I would be kind of interested in reading, now that you mention it. ( )

Anne of the Island is the third novel in the Anne of Green Gables Series by Lucy Maud Montgomery.

Plot:
Anne is finally ready to go to college – and Redmond beckons. Together with Gilbert, Charlie and Priscilla, they go to Nova Scotia to study, while Diana, Marilla and the twins remain back in Avonlea. Many things change for Anne, she makes new friends like Philippa (called Phil) and studies hard, while Gilbert becomes more insistent in his pursuit of Anne – much to her worry.

Reading the Anne of Green Gables series is really wonderful escapism – there is such a warmth and utterly humanistic core to the books, it’s simply a pleasure to fall into Anne’s world.

More like a 3.5. A fairly slow read for me, but I still love the story and characters, and I will continue on with the rest of the series in the future. Read my full review here. ( )

When I first started reading the Anne of Green Gables series I was a pre-teen. I had never left my hometown at that point, and knew that Canada lay north. I imagined that Canada was just the Niagara Falls because that's all I ever saw about it on television. To read a story about an orphaned girl that comes to live with a brother and sister and slowly worms her way into the hearts of them and her neighbors living on Prince Edward Island in the 1900s.

I chose to read book #3 of the series because honestly this is my favorite. We get to see Anne, Gilbert Blythe, Charlie Sloane and Priscilla Grant (all old friends of Anne's) going to Redmond College in Nova Scotia.

Anne is definitely more mature in this book, and a lot of subjects that are looked at definitely are more somber than previous books. I loved Anne a lot in this book because even though she didn't want to admit how everyone and everything is changing, she realizes that she can't keep herself and others frozen based on how they behaved as children. Anne has a falling out with Charlie Sloane (has a chilly reconciliation) and starts to see that she feels something for Gilbert Blythe, but doesn't think it's love. When Anne meets someone else who is her romantic ideal, she initially is happy, but starts to wonder if this is what she's looking for.

We have the introduction of a new characters in this one, Phillipa Gordon, who I found to be funny. We also get to revisit with old characters such as Anne's kindred spirit, Diana Barry, Marilla, Mrs. Lynde, and Dora and Davy Keith who Marilla took in during book #2 (Anne of Avonlea).

The writing is not really complex in these books and honestly I like that. Once you read the first Anne of Green Gables books you will get a better idea about the people and past escapades of Anne.

The flow for this one was not that great though. I think it's because you have a huge passage of time in just a short amount of pages. A lot of events felt rushed and summed up in just a few short paragraphs.

The setting of Redmond College does come alive in this book. One great thing that L.M. Montgomery always did in these books was set a perfect scene of where places are and how they looked.

The ending was one of my favorites in this series. We have Anne having her eyes truly opened about what she wants and who she wants to share her future with. I always thought it was a wonderful the way things wrapped up.

I always enjoy spending time with Anne and am probably going to go back and read the other books in this series later this year. ( )

The Anne books are just plain lovely. I absolutely loved them when I was young and they still make me warm inside thinking about them now. ( )
