Book Description

Feb. 1 1989 New Canadian library
In the second volume of the celebrated Emily trilogy, Lucy Maud Montgomery traces the often stormy course of Emily Starr’s life as she moves from the world of childhood into that of school and adolescence.

Emily Climbs unsentimentally reveals the world of the young as it really is – with its great moments of unalloyed wonder and joy, as well as its cruelty and suffering.

Along with Emily of New Moon and Emily’s Quest, Emily Climbs is a vivid, heartfelt portrait of youth and the road to maturity.

Product Description

From the Publisher

Emily Starr was born with the desire to write. As an orphan living on New Moon Farm, writing helped her face the difficult, lonely times. But now all her friends are going away to high school in nearby Shrewsbury, and her old-fashioned, tyrannical aunt Elizabeth will only let her go if she promises to stop writng! All the same, this is the first step in Emily's climb to success. Once in town, Emily's activities set the Shrewsbury gossips buzzing. But Emily and her friends are confident -- Ilse's a born actress, Teddy's set to be a great artist, and roguish Perry has the makings of a brilliant lawyer. When Emily has her poems published and writes for the town newspaper, success seems to be on its way -- and with it the first whispers of romance. Then Emily is offered a fabulous opportunity, and she must decide if she wants to change her life forever. --This text refers to an alternate Mass Market Paperback edition.

About the Author

Lucy Maud Montgomery was born in Clifton, Prince Edward Island, in 1874. Educated at Prince Edward College, Charlottetown, and Dalhousie University, she embarked on a career in teaching. From 1898 until 1911 she took care of her maternal grandmother in Cavendish, Prince Edward Island, and during this time wrote many poems and stories for Canadian and American magazines.

Montgomery’s first novel, Anne of Green Gables, met with immediate critical and popular acclaim, and its success, both national and international, led to seven sequels. More autobiographical than the books about Anne is the trilogy of novels about another Island orphan, Emily Starr.

In 1911 Montgomery married the Rev. Ewan Macdonald, a Presbyterian clergyman, and they lived in Ontario, where he was the pastor of parishes in Leaskdale and, later, in Norval. They retired to Toronto in 1936.

Lucy Maud Montgomery died in Toronto in 1942.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm blessed because I know the world of Emily May 12 2002
By Lizette
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I've re-read this book so many times. It's like visiting an old friend.Wonderful to recognize.Loving every word.
Emily is one of the very few persons, in books that I can say that I really know. She's like noone else.
And I agree with one of the other reviewers, this isn't a book for just little girls. I belive that everyone could read them, no matter which age they are in.
If you have read some of Montgomerys books this is surelly one you don't forget. Emily will allways be with me, just like Captain Jim in "Anne's house of dreams" and Walter in "Rilla of Ingleside". That is two books I also recommends,with all my heart.
The only bad thing is that I don't have all the books in Swedish. The first one is no longer availiable at the publisher.
That sucks. So I have to go to the library if I want to read it.
But I'm glad that I have to other ones. They are so precious to me. So I would like to end this review as one of the other reviewers - I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT

5.0 out of 5 stars More of Emily's Magic March 11 2002
By Kate
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am a big fan of L. M. Montgomery, and a few months ago, I was enchanted by Emily of New Moon. Of course, after reading that wonderful piece of literature, I HAD to read the sequels. When I finished Emily Climbs this morning, I was amazed at just how well L. M. Montgomery was able to capture the images of Emily's world. This volume in the Emily trilogy tells of her three years at Shrewsbury High School- her troubles, her triumphs, and most important of all, her promising literary career. This book sees the return of characters such as Ilse, Perry, Teddy, and Dean, as well as all the Murray relatives. There are, of course, other characters in Shrewsbury that come into play as well. The magic that L. M. Montgomery used to describe Emily's world and her adventures in Emily of New Moon has reappeared in this volume. This is one of Montgomery's best works, and it is reccomended to any L. M. Montgomery fan!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Emily books are wonderful! Aug. 19 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I believe that Anne and Emily are Lucy Maud Montgomery's most precious and beautiful creations. The stories are perfectly woven, they will grab you and won't leave you even long after you put down the book. These are stories to grow on, they will enlighten and enrich, and there is nothing here that will harm a young girl. In Emily Climbs, the story of Emily Byrd Starr continues as Emily goes from a little girl to a teenager in high school. Her world is changing as she grows up, but she is still the Emily we knew in the first book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the Emily Series July 12 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is certainly the best of the three Emily novels. LMM's wonderful treatment of the sitauations is in keeping with her own special blend of humour. The carictures are clearer here - and the milder romance here is much more beautiful than the slightly heaver tones in "Emily's quest" ad the completely absent ones in "Amily of New Moon". All the three of course, are must-reads. This is a must-own. LMM also made it pretty clear here as to path of Emily's romance (through the dream part) and so one is not totally downcast when Teddy fails to mouth his heart. Anyway, it is a great book. One which should keep you stuck in it for the whole part. Now again - please do not compare it to Anne. The two are different caricatures. I would like to describe it as - well, say - I would like to parent an Anne, and would like to have an Emily fora sister - or maybe even a bride. Anne radiates life and pleasure, while Emily builds it up slowly. There can be no ground for comparison between the two - both of which are the finest creations of LMM -and two of the finest characters of literature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely one of L.M.Montgomery's best Dec 1 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Emily Climbs was the first of the Emily books that I read, and it's the best. Testament to that is the fact that my own copy is falling apart :). Emily Climbs is an achingly beautiful, realistic, and poetical work, that improves upon re-reading. It holds the middle ground between the innocence of Emily Of New Moon, and the darkness of Emily's Quest.
Do not expect this book to be another Anne of Green Gables! The Anne books are for children, the Emily books are not. There is much more to this book than anyone would expect -- wonderful, complex characters, and very subtle, sly underlying themes. This book is a slamming indictment of small-minded Victorian society. Emily herself is no pure, innocent character (read the chapter about the Old John House). She has a dark side that makes her fascinating. Anne was sweet, but Emily is bittersweet. People who are already familiar with L.M.Montgomery's unique humour will know what to expect, but to those who have not read her books before, trust me, there are passages that WILL make you laugh out loud. Basically what I'm trying to say is -- if your idea of literature is the Sweet Valley High books, then you won't enjoy this book. For those who will enjoy it...well, you know who you are :).
