Oh my God. I can't believe how I ever ignored my mother's suggestion to read this. This has to be one of the most beautiful, worthwhile, funny, and heartbreaking books I have EVER read-- and trust me, I read a lot. Louisa May Alcott is amazingly good at depicting the workings of a small family, and I teared up and/or cried at least five times while reading! As a young writer, I empathized with Jo March, but surely everyone will find some bit of themselves in every one of these four sisters and their "brother" Laurie-- they are some of the most human characterizations I have ever seen. Some believe this book is outdated, but I honestly do not care-- it is an amazing achievement, and those who do not read it due to length or the belief it is "boring" are missing out. Do yourself a favor and READ IT!
A must-read for all young women, in my opinion. I was practically raised by Louisa May Alcott, and I re-read this book once a year. Amusing, touching and historically honest.
A classic enjoyed as a child and adult.
My second favorite book!(Black Beauty is 1st) Full of lovable and memorable characters, and living morals. An assortment of personalities all with their faults and adorning traits. My favorite books work like a good sermon to me. They leave me leaping inside to trample my own faults while loving to cultivate the good things in myself.
A warm, readable family story.
I personally liked to movie better, but once you get used to the style, it is entertaining
The classic that never gets old!!
Little Women is an American classic...
