Little Women by Louisa May Alcott is by far, one of the most comforting classics I have ever read. Alcott's novel follows the familiar March family, sisters Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy, growing up in post-civil war America. The themes of…

SO sexist It's hard to believe this was written by a female. I just let the messages of self-sacrifice and servitude and domesticity fly over my head and enjoyed the wholesome childhood fun in the first part. The second part gets a lot…

My mother introduced this book to me at a young age, and I loved the book and loved watching it turn into a movie as well. The four sisters are lovable characters with each possessing unique qualities in which young girls can relate to.…

A classic of children's literature, and a must-read for any age! It speaks to the author's talent that a tale firmly fixed in the Victorian Era is still highly readable today. The only reason why I didn't give it a full five stars is…

A very good classical book that is inspiring and teaches people how to be happy despite hard times. Beth, Amy, Jo, and Meg all are very poor but their mother teaches them that money doesn't buy happiness and they learn that lesson…

Never read it as a child, so I’m reading it now. I have seen the classic movie, so I was aware Jo was a tomboy & gifted writer, but had no idea she was manic-depressive, which she clearly was, from the book’s description of her behavior.…

I finally got around to reading this classic novel in anticipation of seeing the new movie. Unfortunately it didn't really hold my attention and parts of it really dragged. Jo was by far the most interesting character.

The story is told in an almost fairytale manner and the episodes are often accompanied by clear morals. But what struck me the most was the intensity of the love amongst its characters and their willingness to see past faults and…

Many life lessons

An American classic, not written, but still relevant for current time. I’m particularly fond of, in Part 1, at-home plays on stage drama, journal publishing, postal delivery... in contrast to and more healthy than modern kids’ social…

A teacher put this book in my hands at the age of 8, and I have had a lifelong relationship with it. Louisa May Alcott has taught me bravery, adventure, love and loss, feminism, imagination, among many other life lessons. Far ahead of…

I had a hard time to be hooked in the beginning until I came to the middle of the part when Jo met the boy at the party. Overall, it's not bad and I wish I could have the wisdom of Mrs. March to hold my tongue when I supposed to do.

This is a wonderful book, not without it's faults in some areas and it was certainly not written by me. But I think that it is a very pleasant way to learn about life's moral lessons through the avenue of these young characters lives. I…

A must read. It was difficult for me to get into at first as I am not used to classical literature, but the morals of this novel are so relevant even for today’s society. It was nice to see an all female led cast of characters in an…

This book was absolutely wonderful. I loved following the story of the March family and the four March sisters. Many lessons were taught throughout the book: self loathing vs. self esteem, how to be grateful for what you have, how to be a…

Little Women certainly deserves to be called a classic. As Louisa May Alcott tells the stories of this fictional family, of these four sisters growing up together, it seems so real. She based some of the stories off of her own life, and it…
