Review: Anne of Green Gables by LM Montgomery

Anne of Green Gables is such a cute story. I loved her spunky personaility and endearing character. Cannot wait to see the DVD series. The book is written with such description that you can imagine sitting on the bridge overlooking the stream and watching Anne's life unfold. The story truly made me smile.
 SYNOPSIS by Barnes & Noble
As soon as Anne Shirley arrives at the snug white farmhouse called Green Gables, she is sure she wants to stay forever...but will the Cuthberts send her back to the orphanage? Anne knows she's not what they expected-a skinny girl with fiery red hair and a temper to match. If only she can convince them to let her stay, she'll try very hard not to keep rushing headlong into scrapes and blurting out the first thing that comes to her mind. Anne is not like anybody else, the Cuthberts agree; she is special-a girl with an enormous imagination. This orphan girl dreams of the day when she can call herself Anne of Green Gables.
"Which would you rather be if you had the chance - divinely beautiful or dazzingly cleaver or angelically good?  It doesn't matter much, it isn't likely I'll be either".
"All sorts of mornings are interesting, don't you think?  You don't know whats going to happen through the day and there's so much scope for imagination."
"Blessed are they who expect nothing for they shall not be dissapointed.  But I think it would be worse to expect nothing than to be disappointed."
"Boiled pork and greens are so unromantic when one is in affliction."
"Isn't it a wonderful morning?  The world looks like something God had just imagined for His own pleasure, doesn't it?"
"I never knew before that religion was such a cheerful thing.  I always thought it was kind of melancholy, but Mrs Allan's isn't, I'd like to be a Christian if I could be one like her."
"Isn't it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?"
"There are others that you have to try very hard to love.  You know you ought to love them because they know so much and are such active workers in the church, but you have to keep reminding yourself all the time or else you forget."
"There must be a limit to the mistakes one person can make, and when I get to the end of them, then I'll be through with them.  That's a very comforting thought."
