    Well you will soon be able to get a very cheap copy The reviews on Amazon are really trashing it so I imagine it will be bargain basement priced soon.

    Everyone knows redheads are best, so why they'd even try to go blonde is beyond me.

    Terrible move. I bet some heads will roll for this mistake.....

    I'm aghast at this. It is absolutely a critical part of the story that Anne is a redhead.

    I don't think this is a mistake. I think this was well-planned by Amazon. Look how much publicity they are getting for a 100-year old book on which there is no longer copyright.

    Even though I wasn't much into the tv series, I did read the books, went to Lucy Maud Montgomery's house in PEI and all that, and to have anything other than a redhead Anne is sacrilege, IMO. Must be a redhead. It would be like Little Orphan Annie having a jet black mohawk or something.

    Yep. I didn't watch the tv series although I've seen clips of it, but I read those books over & over as a kid.

    It's like giving Rapunzel short hair!

    After mentioning this thread discussion to my daughters, one of them found the movie on Youtube to watch this weekend. Was good but I always love the books more!

    Totally bizarre move.

    Like changing Pippi Longstocking to have short brown hair or something. You just don't take away a character's trademark look. Are they trying to, like, sex her up, or something? Yeesh.
