Okay, guys. If you know me at all you knew it was only a matter of time before another character from the Anne of Green Gables series by L.M. Montgomery ended up being featured on the blog. I’ve already featured Anne, so now it is Gilbert’s turn! (Watch out for some Anne spoilers, y’all!)
I get all warm and fuzzy inside when I think about Gilbert. Has there ever been a more perfect fictional creation? I think not. Gilbert embodies everything one should want in a man: he is handsome, loyal, honest, smart and thoughtful. He eventually becomes a doctor!
The mini-series based on the books is incredible, I love Jonathan Crombie, the guy who plays Gilbert. He isn’t necessarily the most dashing actor in the world, but he is just so Gilberty. He manages to get the troublemaking younger Gil come across just as well as the older, more mature Gil.
I can’t ramble on too much more about him without spoiling the entire Anne series for everyone that hasn’t read them. I can’t recommend reading them enough, they are my absolute favorite books of all time!
