Before Green Gables by Budge Wilson

Last night (later than I should have, given that it was a week night), I finished reading Before Green Gables, Budge Wilson‘s authorized prequel to L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables series. This is not a book I ever intended to read. I’m not a fan of authorized sequels or prequels to the works of dead authors. However, I read an article highlighting the book in the Dalhousie alumni magazine and was intrigued.

I enjoyed the book. It did seem more suited to a slightly older audience than the original works, so I would definitely recommend that this book be read after the original eight books, rather than before them.
