Hey guys! I was supposed to write a review for school, so I thought why not post it on here? 😀 I wrote this a while ago. 😉
Title: Anne of Ingleside (Book #6 of the Anne of Green Gables Series)
Author: L.M. Montgomery
Number of Pages: 277
Summary: Anne is now living at Ingleside with Gilbert, their five, soon to be six, children and Susan Baker, their faithful handmaiden for fifteen years. The children come upon many adventures and mishaps including a ‘GLOOMY HOUSE’, a new baby sister, and a journey of six miles alone in the night.
Anne of Ingleside is the sixth book in the Anne of Green Gables series, but in my opinion, it is one of the best. This book covers the childhood of Anne’s six children: Jem, Walter, Nan and Di, Shirley, and Rilla and all their mischief and mistakes. All of their stories are very cleverly told and it is hard to set this book down in the middle of a chapter.
L. M. Montgomery wrote the book in the point of view from both Anne and her children. While they don’t actually narrate the story, they each have their own chapters that tell about the adventures in a way that makes you sympathize with the children.
There is no real main character- there is not even a huge plot- but it is just as interesting as any other book with a full plot. Really all the author wants is to tell about the children, sometimes stringing in larger parts that involve all of them, and sometimes just giving each child its own problem. They usually come to their beloved mother (Anne) with their problems and Anne will tell them what to do next time.
I believe the author meant to write about Anne’s children in sort the same style she wrote about Anne herself in the first book. And I think she did that very well. The writing is not hard at all to read, but it still is a very good book. She does sometimes spend a bit too much time on topics that are not quite so interesting as others, but the way she tells things makes it worth reading every part.
I think Anne of Ingleside is one of my favorite books and I highly recommend reading it. Of course you should read the five books before it, but do not stop after the first one or you will miss many lovely stories.
That was a little harder than I thought it might be! Did you enjoy this review? Have you read any of the Anne books?
Goodbye for now!
