Mixed quality of readers

(2.5 stars)

Well written story, well read by some of the readers, but there are other readers who detract from the quality of the narration. Those chapters are a challenge to listen to.

a great book

(5 stars)

A vary good book like all the rest of Lucy maud Montgomerys Books! for girls 10+.

(5 stars)

Such an amazing book! Oh, how it got me worked up with emotions.

Great book, some narrators good.

(3 stars)

not sure what's going on in chapters 5, 6 and 13. Ridiculous toneless narration, as tho the reader is racing to get it over with. lovely that people spend the time to contribute but really ought to do the job with some interest and attention. Other narrators excellent and read with beautiful expression.

(5 stars)

I was wrapped up in the story from the first word. I mostly like the readers (especially reader J.F.Parks), but some got on my nerves . (chapters 5,6, and 12,13. ) I was frustrated with Emily because she would not get married. But I was very happy with the end. THUMBS UP!!!! Loved itsoooomuch!!!!!!!!!

Not my favourite

(1.5 stars)

The plot seemed to drag on and on with no resolve of any kind for far too long. To the point of being almost boring. I like L.M.Montgomery books but this one just didn't cut it. Sort of a disappointing ending to a good series.

(4 stars)

A satisfying round-off to the trilogy. Many of the librivox readers were good but I had to find a text version to read on line for a couple of chapters which were unintelligible in this librivox version.

good story kept me interested

(4 stars)

Liked the story very much. Almost all the readers did well. All but chapter 13. Reader seemed to just want to be done with it with poor enunciation and poor punctuation.
