Little Women

Title: Little Women
Author: Louisa May Alcott
Reading Level: Young Adult, Adult
Rating: 5/5

In picturesque nineteenth-century New England, tomboyish Jo, beautiful Meg, fragile Beth, and romantic Amy come of age while their father is off to war.

This is one of my very favorite books of all time. When I read it in high school it just really fit with me. I have seen all the different version of the movies way before I ever read the book. I didn't want to read it because I always felt like Jo & Laurie should be together. I didn't like the ending. Until I read the book I never understood. I totally believe that the books ending is how it should be. This is such a classic for me. I love to read it every winter. Helps me get into the season. It is a classic for a reason. Enjoy!


  1. I've only seen the film versions and they make me want Jo and Laurie to be together too. I should read the book and see just why Alcott thinks they shouldn't. Great review!

  3. How very cool. I think what's so amazing about this book is that each one of us can see ourselves in one or more of the sisters.

  4. BIG confession: I have never read this book in its entirety...isn't that horrible? Especially since I am such a fan of the movie. I must fix this!

  5. I've always wanted to read this. I love the story, and I love the film version with Winona Ryder and Christian Bale. Have always wanted to sit down and get into the book. :)


I love to hear what you think.
