    One thought on “Anne of Windy Poplars

    1. Maureen on said:

      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.

      "Nobody is ever too old to dream. And dreams never grow old."I see by the reviews that a lot of Anne-fans are disappointed in this one. On this, my third reading, I must admit that I was, too. I think it is the lack of the "old familiar." Anne is away, serving as principal of a school in Summerside. Gilbert is far, far away, studying medicine. Other than letters, there is no repartee between the two. Avonlea, and her beloved residents, is only visited during the holidays and summer breaks. There [...]

    3. Anne on said:

      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 e [...]

      Oh Anne, you wonderfully bold and beautiful galShe's finished college, runs her own little school and is in constant correspondence with her fiance, Gilbert. We have a bit of switching perspectives - Anne in third person throughout the novel and in first person as we read her letters to Gilbert. I can see why those letters are included - it's a way for the readers to remember that she's still very much in love with her fiance. Yet, I cannot say that I'm a fan of it. We only see the one-sided gus [...]

      ~4.5 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 [...]

    7. Tiffany on said:

      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 onet 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 [...]

    8. Britany on said:

      So far, this is my favorite Anne book in the series. I fell head over heels listening to this book on audio. A cast of characters that exceeded any cast in the series so far (which is hard to believe-- I know). Anne goes to Summerside to be a principal while her betrothed Gilbert is in med school. The book is mostly comprised of letters to Gilbert about the goings-on in Summerside. Rebecca Dew might just be my absolute favorite character in the series so far. I just loved her and her snarky ways [...]

    9. E.F.B. on said:

      4.5 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 he [...]

    10. Audrey on said:

      Anne is finished at College and is now the Principal of Summerside High School. She writes to her beloved Gilbert who is continuing his education to become a medical doctor. Anne shares her experiences with the colorful and eccentric folks at Summerside. This is another charming story that will delight all readers.

    11. MAP on said:

      Please someone tell me if I'm crazy.Did Anne Shirley and a student named Lewis meet with a ghost, take a picture of him, and then when they found out he was a ghost, they took in total stride and gave the picture to his father?Did that seriously happen in this book? Or did some of my pages have LSD on them?

      So far, 'Anne of Windy Poplars' has to be my least favourite Anne book. This might change, because Ididlike it. Some bits I really liked. Some bits I found so boring I found myself taking a nap.What I liked:1. Windy Poplars. It sounds likesucha beautiful place to live!!! Little hidey-holes and secret reading places?!!!! YesPlease.I'd love to live in Windy Poplars. (And the name is scrumptious.) (Did you know that it was originally called 'Anne of Windy WILLOWS?' They asked Montgomery to change i [...]

    13. Jeanette on said:

      After reading Anne of the Island, my favorite book in the Anne series, Anne of Windy Poplars always seems to fall a little flat for me.Anne and Gilbert are engaged and while Gilbert is off at medical school, Anne has taken a job as principal at Summerside High School.Much of this book is made up of letters from Anne to Gilbert. I just wish there was more of Gilbert in this story like maybe some of his letters to Anne. L.M. Montgomery rarely wrote much from the hero's side in her books, something [...]

    14. Manisha on said:

      My love for Anne is boundless. I was pleasantly surprised with this book. The format was different from the previous books, which helped greatly since Anne and Gilbert were separated during this novel. Honestly, the highlight for every single novel in this series is Anne. Anne, who is unapologetically herself. Anne, who triumphs over adversity. Anne, who is good and kind. Characters like her become fewer with each passing year. It's an awful thought, because we must all strive to be Anne Shirley [...]

    15. Megan Baxter on said:

      I've said before that Emily is my favourite Montgomery heroine, and that holds. But that doesn't mean I don't have a huge soft spot for Anne and her life. She is much more domestic in orientation, at least in every book after this one, and that has its appeal. Ordinary life is painted in such vivid and interesting colours that it leaps off the page, putting the lie to the idea that such things are beneath our proper notice.Note: The rest of this review has been withheld due to the changes in po [...]

    16. Ferdy on said:

      Didn't care about all the new characters, there were way too many of them and none of them stood out. They also felt pointless as it was obvious Anne would probably never hear or see from most of them again. The Summerside setting wasn't all that great either, it didn't match up to the homeyness of Green Gables/Avonlea. And when is Anne going to fully pursue her writing career? The teaching has been done to death.

    17. Grace Buckner on said:

      4.5 StarsI've been reading through the Anne series, but I decide to skip this one this time-again. Anne of Windy Poplars never interested me nearly as much as the other books, but once I finally read it, it was a really good book. Just not in the mood to read it this time.

    18. Theresa on said:

      WellLMM does it again. Anne Shirley, once of Green Gables, has completely stolen my heart in her next adventure.Now at Windy Poplars, Anne is older, wiser, and school principal. The book is told half through letters to Gilbert Blythe and half third person narration. My only problem with this was all the love letters were excluded, and I really missed Gilbert in this book. Once Anne's competition and own worst enemy is now the love of her life. I couldn't be happier about this, because I've been [...]

      شايد شخصيتِ اصلى اين كتاب هر كسى جز آنه شرلى بود، مرا دلزده مى كرد. شخصيت هاى خاكسترى براى من محبوب ترند تا يك شخصيتِ كاملا سفيد و مثبت. اينجا آنه شرلى تقريبا به ٢٥ سالگى ميرسد و من واقعا نميدانم ٢٥ سالگيم چه شكلى خواهد بود؛بنابراين درك زيادى از آن سن ندارم.حقيقتا دلم در اين كتا [...]

    20. Deborah Pickstone on said:

      Some people dislike this being written mainly as letters but I really enjoyed it. This has developed from a 'children's' book to HF, and well done at that, as well as a classic. Of course it wasn't HF at the time of writing!I also saw questions raised over (view spoiler)[the child who died of pneumonia. Yes, this scenario was entirely possible, no antibiotics and a child could - and did often - die in just days. We have no idea how easily children died in times past; it is our perception that is [...]

      Pur collocandosi cronologicamente a metà della storia, Anne of Windy Poplars è il penultimo romanzo della serie, scritto dall'autrice nel 1936, ventun anni dopo Anne of the Island, il capitolo precedente, e diciannove anni dopo Anne's House of Dreams, quello successivo.Si tratta di un romanzo di passaggio che contiene le lettere scritte da Anna al suo amato nell'arco dei tre anni che li vede separati e lontani da Avonlea, lei impegnata a ricoprire l'incarico di preside in un istituto di Summer [...]

      It's been several decades since I read all of this series, so I decided this year was time for another visit to them all. I'm glad I did because I'm enjoying this book so much. Anne has graduated from college and grown up some along the way - but not enough to loose her fresh way of seeing things. She's teaching at, and is principal of, a High School on PEI, but it's an entirely new community for her and not everyone loves her at first. This book covers the three years Gilbert is in medical scho [...]

    24. Elizabeth on said:

      As much as I enjoy the original Anne of Green Gables, this and Anne of the Island are probably my favorites in the series. Anne's grown up, still both stubborn and dreamy, and I find it easier to read her stories at this stage of her life than when she was a small child. For similar reasons, I'm not as fond of the later books in this series, where Anne becomes a flatter, duller character, and then eventually fades to the background, letting her children's stories come to the fore-front. This is [...]

    25. Leah on said:

      Ok, I have loved all of the books in this series so far, however, this one was a little shall I say this - eh. That's what it was. Eh.Anne writes lots of letters to Gilbert, but we never get to see any letters that Gil writes to her. Also, lots of new characters are introduced in this book and I wonder how on earth Anne is going to keep up with all these people.Also, Anne has officially turned into the perfect person who changes the life of everyone she meets. Honestly, does this woman have a fl [...]

      This is the fourth book in the Anne of Green Gables Series, and this is my 100th book for my 2016 Reading Challenge. Wuhuu 200%! HeheAnne of Windy Poplars by L.M. Montgomery is fun, sweet, enchanting read. Told mostly in letters from Anne to (my) Gilbert, hehe It's a cute story that feels a bit random. I enjoyed the new characters and there are several hilarious scenes. The dinner scene with Cyrus's family was my favorite. A visit with Anne Shirley is always nice.Favorite quote :"My esteem and, [...]

      کسالت‌آور بود خیلی.و سوال: چرا هر لفظ عاشقانه‌ی آنی به گیلبرت رو سانسور کرده‌بودن؟ -_- «برایت بوسه می‌فرستم» رو تبدیل کرده‌بودن به «برایت می‌فرستم.» . همین رو تعمیم بدید به سایر بخش‌های عاشقانه‌ی کتاب. -_-و این که اون‌قدر کاراکترها گذرا بودن که آدم نمی‌تونست بشناسدشون اصل [...]

      Had a great time reading Anne of Windy Poplars. I believe the Anne series are the sort of books that really let me lose myself in. It is a joy to see her grow up, too. I kind of miss that ill-tempered, slightly clumsy, red-headed child though. I can always revisit her anyway in Anne of Green Gables.
