Anne’s House of Dreams by L M Montogomery–Book Review


Rating : 3.5/5
Source : Second hand copy
Genre : Children’s Fiction
Year of Release :  1917
Anne’s House of Dreams is the fifth book in the Anne of Green Gables series about which I have written many posts in this blog.

This book starts with Anne’s marriage to her sweetheart Gilbert Blythe who has finally become a doctor. Gilbert and Anne moves to Four Winds where they start their life in their new house. Four Winds has quite a few interesting people like Captain Jim who grows to be very much dearer to Anne & Gilbert, Leslie Moore with her tragic life and Miss Cornelia who is always criticizing men. Gilbert and Anne leads a happy life at Four Winds with so many loving friends around. Anne also become a mother while living there.

As I have written many times ( hope you are not bored reading them) I love this Anne of Green Gables series. I have read the first four books while I was in school, but I read Anne’s House of Dreams for the first time. You may see reviews of the next 3 books very soon since I acquired all the four last books in one go last week :)

Personally I didn’t find this book as interesting as the previous books. This could be because it was more of a narration of Anne’s life at Four Winds. There weren’t much personal thoughts or experiences in the book. But all these reasons didn’t stop me from finishing the book in a few days :)

Probably this diminishing interest is pointing out to me the painful fact that I am no longer a school going child who looks at the future with a lot of hope and optimism. One thought that came to my mind was that life may not treat you so well in many ways as it was for Anne in this series.
