The cows in Anne of Green Gables

I recently decided I should read Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery. I never read it as a kid and I understand most American women who grew up in my generation and the previous ones read this childhood classic. So I borrowed the illustrated version from the library.

When you get the illustrated version of a book, you see a couple of illustrations every chapter to match the text. Well, I had no idea there were cows in this book but Matthew, Anne’s adoptive father, owns a farm and gets to milk cows with his family. So here’s what I saw where I turned one of the pages:

 Oh well, that will teach me to try to catch up with the classics. And on top of it, I thought the book was so awful after reading a third of it, I just schemed through all the pages to be done with it today and move on to my next book. To think of it, that cow looks pissed off. I should have taken it as a sign…

    1. Ah, somebody who liked the book. Did you read it as an adult or only as a child? I think to like this book as an adult, you must read it and like it as a child. Anne is one of the most annoying and vain girls around, throwing huge temper tantrums over the color of her hair. And the book was so, so long and overdone. At least the pictures made up for some of it… ;-)
