Read full description of the books Anne of Green Gables Boxed Set:
I was hands-down, totally over the top OBSESSED with Anne (with an E) of Green Gables for a large majority of my childhood. She took that crucial spot for me after Laura Ingalls and before Madonna and Punky Brewster. You could call it my post-Victorian era, I suppose.
First, I'll admit it. I saw the made for TV movie first. We recorded it on video. I watched it over and over and over. I had all the lines memorized. I cried when I found out the adoptive dad died in real life. I made my dad pledge to PBS so I could own my own copy of the book. It was a beautiful edition, with gold-leaf pages and a picture of Anne on the cover that inspired many many pencil drawings by moi. Let me tell you, I read the shit out of that book. It took me a while, because I wanted to savor it. I think it took me so long, that by the time I had made my way to Anne of the Island, I had lost interest, and started reading Christopher Pike or something.
Anne was a hero to me, because she was tough, and she was on her own. She fantasized about her own death (I can't tell you how many times I wished I had a canoe to lie down in and a fistful of flowers), and lived in her own intellectual world. She wasn't all that hot by the standards of the day (plus she carried that fugly carpet bag), she was independent (some would say "strange"), but she still snagged that catch, Gilbert, or whatever his name was. She was a bit mixed up, super fiesty, and she was human. Anne rules!
