Susan G. Baird
AudioFile, November 2015

The contrast between chatty, warm Anne and reticent, aloof Marilla Cuthbert makes audio the perfect format for this classic. When Anne is mistakenly sent to live with the Cuthberts, who preferred to adopt a boy, performer Liza Ross is off and running with her delightfully spirited rendering of Anne’s story. It’s enjoyable to hear about Anne’s life as she settles down on the Cuthberts’ farm, makes friends, and goes to school. Ross also breathes life into Matthew Cuthbert, as well as the teachers and students Anne encounters as she takes her school by storm. Even the contrasting sad and sprightly music seems to come under Anne’s spell. © 2015 AudioFile
