In classics, the author usually drones on and on about things that nobody cares about (kind of like I’m doing now). So I don’t like them. My definition of a classic is “action-lacking and boring”. But this summer I found a classic that blew me away! When Anne, an energetic red-head orphan who has been shuffled around through different families all her life goes to live with Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert, she wants nothing more than to stay in Green Gables for good. At first, Marilla is objective and doesn’t want Anne to stay, but soon Anne’s spirit gets to her. Anne gets into problems all the time, and has a vivid imagination. My favorite part is when Anne is acting out a scene from a book and is floating out in a pond in a leaky boat! And this book is NOT boring. (Climbing up on a roof for and falling off, smashing a chalkboard over a boy’s head.) I’d say there are two types of classics: The boring ones and the ones that really deserve to be honored. I know where I would put Anne of Green Gables. Read it!

    I didn’t like this book very much because it was too oldfashioned and didn’t have much going on until the end and even that part wasn’t very interesting.
