I don't get why everyone keeps going on about Gilbert Blythe when he's hardly in this book. To my disappointment it's all Anne's fault and her obstinate efforts to remain a grudge holder for 5 years. Five years she held a grudge for him for calling her "carrots", even thought he immediately apologized and sucked up for two years; and yet, Josie Pye has done worse 10x over and Anne remained cordial with her. I don't get it. As an Adult this rambling is rather immature and I don't contest that. It's just, what else am I suppose to say when there are thousands of other coherent reviews already out there? I don't have anything original to add, so there, whateves! :-PDespite Anne's ability to annoy the hell out of me at times, it was nice connecting to my inner chatter box and dreamer. She made me laugh more than she annoyed me in the grand scheme of things and she'll always have a special place in my heart.
