Anne Shirley has many faithful fans, and this Focus on the Family Radio Theatre production is likely to please even the most discerning and critical among them. Its faithful adaptation nicely captures lovable, irrepressible Anne, and given its extensive use of dialogue, the book lends itself well to audio. Nearly thirty cast members contribute to this production, and all are professional and capable. Matthew, Marilla, and good-hearted busybody Mrs. Rachel Lynde are especially fine, and Anne herself (narrated by Mae Whitman) sounds appropriately breathless and fervent. The production’s pretty musical score and tasteful use of sound effects (realistic and well-chosen) provide what Anne calls “scope for imagination” and complement the actors’ performances. This story will indeed be enjoyed by the whole family. J.C.G. 2005 Audie Award Finalist © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
