Resumen

Cuando en lugar del chico huérfano que pretendían adoptar, Ana Shirley, una niña pelirroja de once años, aparece en las vidas de Marilla y Matthew Cuthbert, dos hermanos solteros que viven en su casa familiar de Tejas Verdes, en el pequeño pueblo de Avonlea, sus vidas y las de cuantos la rodean cambiarán para siempre. Con s u vivacidad, risas y lágrimas, y sobre todo su alegría e imaginación, Ana conseguirá formar parte, por primera vez en su vida, de una familia, y tener un lugar al que podrá llamar hogar para siempre. Ambientada a principios del siglo XX, en un lugar tan mágico como Prince Edward Island, en Canadá, Ana, la de Tejas Verdes nos llevará a través de los ojos de esta despierta e inocente niña a sentir el mundo como algo totalmente nuevo, a emocionarnos y reirnos con sus ocurrencias, y en definitiva, a ver la vida desde un prisma más positivo y estimulante. Esta obra, al igual que toda la serie de Ana Shirley, conjuga los valores de la vida rural y la familia con las cuestiones universales que todos nos plantearnos en algún momento, como la pertenencia a una tierra, el valor de la amistad o la esencia del amor.

In a lifetime full of being able to reread books over and over again, Anne of Green Gables is high on my list of "books I can reread at any time." It's one of the most delicious books I've ever come across, for the writing, the atmosphere, the characters and the scenery. Anne is a loveable girl, but there are so many other characters that capture your heart that it's impossible to pick a favorite. There's Matthew, Mrs. Lynde, Marilla, Aunt Josephine... actually the weakest characters are Anne's childhood companions. I found them all rather typical and undistinguished, whereas the adult personalities fairly leap off the page with their vivid and well-written personalities. Josie Pye was actually the best of the bunch for the children. The only other weakness is the big dose of religion, which is hardly surprising considering it was published in 1908 by a woman who was engaged to a minister. It does at least try and lighten the severe religion of the adults with the dreamy, imaginative version Anne has in her own head, but it is fairly heavy-handed at times - such as when a teacher tells her children that by age 20 their characters will be fixed and pretty much implies that there's no hope of changing thereafter - what a thing to tell a child! Anyway, those weaknesses really are completely incapable of spoiling the book. It is charming, it is beautiful, and it is a wonderful book to curl up with at any time of year and revisit as with an old and faithful friend.
