☆ Read Ù Anne of Windy Poplars by L.M. Montgomery ¿ Now while Lucy Maud Montgomery s Anne of Windy Poplars is considered the fourth of the Anne of Green Gables stories according to the timeline of Anne Shirley s life and describes with both meticulously descriptive detail and often very much delightful, sometimes even wickedly hilarious humour her three years teaching at a girl s academy in Summerside, Prince Edward Island, whilst her fianc Gilbert Blythe is studying to be a doctor , Anne of Windy Poplars is actually the second to last novel of the series if one looks at its publication date of 1936 with only the sixth story of Anne s life, with only Anne of Ingleside coming later, being published in 1939 And whereas I as an older adult reader now do indeed very much consider Anne of Windy Poplars as one of my absolute and all time personal favourite stories abou Anne of Windy Poplars Anne of Green Gables 4 , L.

Anne Shirley Has Left Redmond College Behind To Begin A New Job And A New Chapter Of Her Life Away From Green Gables Now She Faces A New Challenge The Pringles They Re Known As The Royal Family Of Summerside And They Quickly Let Anne Know She Is Not The Person They Had Wanted As Principal Of Summerside High School But As She Settles Into The Cozy Tower Room At Windy Poplars, Anne Finds She Has Great Allies In The Widows Aunt Kate And Aunt Chatty And In Their Irrepressible Housekeeper, Rebecca Dew As Anne Learns Summerside S Strangest Secrets, Winning The Support Of The Prickly Pringles Becomes Only The First Of Her Delicious Triumphs I loved this one I think at the beginning I was a little skeptical, especially since Montgomery kept omitting the parts where Anne had the right pen to write love letters to Gilbert I wanted to read Anne s love letters But for all that, I loved the characters in this book Rebecca Dew cracked me up, as did Aunt Kate and Aunt Chatty, with their buttermilk secrets Dusty Miller the cat Katherine Brooke Nora Nelson and Jim Wilcox little Elizabeth Cyrus Taylor oh, but that was a hilarious episode and all those old ladies with bizarre quirks, like Aunt Ernestine, Miss Minerva Tomgallon too much Dickens, quoth Anne , Mrs Gibsonand of course all the Pringles It reminded me of Rock Ridge, the town in Blazing Saddles where everyone is calle In a word.
disappointing It was good enough to finish but it took 2 or 3 weeks to get through This is a good indication of my interest level, because really great books keep me up at night until I finish them This one.
not so much.
I didn t care for the style half letters from Anne to Gilbert, and half third person, with no good reason to switch back and forth between the two There are a ton of new characters, but the sheer volume precludes any satisfying character development Anne seems to be a miracle in the life of everyone she meets, which worked okay for a book or two, but now feels like a rehashing of the same old stories with different names attached If it were a stand alone book, I would have liked it better, but as part of a series, it felt too redundant That is the worst of my criticism, though There are some I am pretty disappointed with this one I mean, in comparison to the first three books in this series, this one was rather weak Unfortunately, it just didn t keep me interested enough to thoroughly enjoy it, even if this series is reminiscent to my childhood.
The writing itself was lacking any kind of interesting description, the plot was confusing and pretty much all over the place and for me, telling the story through half written letters to Gilbert, really didn t work.
I do enjoy the Anne of green gables series, and I love Anne as a character, but this little book of stories, I see to being rather unnecessary and somewhat pointless I mean, did I really need a book crammed with unlikeable asses I will finish this series despite my disappointment with this one.
5 stars I wasn t too sure about how I would like this book once I realized that most of it was just Anne s letters to Gilbert But I was pleasantly surprised by how much I did enjoy it It could definitely be a little slow in some areas, and I don t think it is in any way my favorite out of the series as a whole, but I am still glad I decided to continue on with this beautiful series that L.
M Montgomery has created I am looking forward to reading the fifth book really soon because of view spoiler Anne and Gilbert s wedding coming up D hide spoiler
5 stars I LOVE THESE books Are they perfect No Are they very much enjoyable nevertheless YES Things I liked I really loved Anne s newfound maturity in this book She s still the young, imaginative, energetic, loving, enthusiastic Anne we know and love, but the life lessons she learned in the previous book have settled in and I really liked how grounded she was, and how secure in her engagement to Gilbert Unlike in the previous book, there was never a time when I wanted to take her by the shoulders and shake some sense into her, which was very nice, indeed.
I ll also add that I once again found Anne s kindness an inspiration Some might call Anne a meddler, and yes, sometimes she does meddle and experiences the consequences However, there are also times when she goes out of her way to be kind and care for individuals she barely even Possibly 3.
5 5 but idk yet.
I still really enjoyed this book because Anne is my FAVE, but I think the back and forth between her letters to Gilbert and third person narrative was a little bit much I didn t really love that switch and I missed Gilbert throughout this book, though I understand why he wasn t in it I still love Anne as a character DEARLY and I will honestly love her forever She is so kind and compassionate and lovely and just EVERYTHING.
