Before I share my review...
Now for the review part
Beyond this, you feel more connected with the characters and the story itself.
Reading this book is like watching bonus features on a movie. You get to see the outtakes and cuts, that don’t make it into the final product. For example, Diana Barry’s name was originally Laura! I know, it’s hard imagine, I bet even Anne would have trouble imagining that!
What makes this book so wonderful, is that you get to see the real, raw, thing. You can see all of the blood, sweat and tears that the author put into it. The corrections she made, when she crossed things out because she misspelled words, the added words, and whole added paragraphs. Those things are what makes it truly enthralling.
This book is all Anne fans out there
If you are a fan of Anne Shirley and the world she lives in, then I would suggest you read this book. Anne of Green Gables: The Original Manuscript is so interesting and engaging that you can hardly bear putting it down. You can either purchase a copy, or find it at your local library. Either way, I strongly suggest you read it!
