There should always be a tale like this somewhere for boys and girls, ladies and gentlemen alike. The story revolves around a humble family: the March family. The four daughters of varying personalities are the stars of the tale along with a brother next door, a friend, a loving patient mother and the most inspiring of fathers.
Little Women is a tale of growth, love, strength and determination. Life is never easy, as the girls find, but love will always come to those who live with their hearts open and passions bridled.
I love the stories innocent love and admirable language, the humor is sincere and the characters so real i couldn't put the book down. Little Women one of my perfect places to go: back to a simple living in the American past. With horse-drawn couches and satin-silk gowns and balls, Louisa May Alcott wrote a worthy moral tale of a lifetime.

I read this book on a very long plane ride to South Africa. I had received it as a birthday present and figured that it would keep me entertained. It was alright, as far as books of that time period go. Jo was a very interesting character, who had a great track of growth and development throughout the novel. However I think it is Amy that has the most development throughout the story. It may be that she is a girl when it begins, but I feel she was a well developed character. This book is a great sort of coming of age book for girls.

Meet Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy March. Meg, the oldest, is very mature and careful about her prettiness. Jo is a very adventurous girl whose real name is Josephine. She is a tomboy and wants to go with her father to fight in the war. She also has remarkable hair and then she sells it to help her mother go to see her father when he is injured. Beth is a very shy girl that sadly dies and she loves to play piano and wishes she had a prettier one, but she doesn't say it out loud because she is too shy to do that. Amy, a very vain girl, loves to do art like me and "loves" to say very fancy words that aren't right like "Oh, Meg, I'm so degradatated." I also recommend the movie of Little Women, the one with WInona Ryder as the sister Jo.

This might be a long book, but it's totally worth the time. Spotted throughout this fantastic book are morals that applied in the 19th-century and still apply today. 'Little Women' is one of the most intriguing books I have ever read, so intriguing that I cannot find the words to describe it. I still think Jo and Laurie would have been great together, though...

This is a beautiful story with brilliant tension building and climaxes all the way through the story especially with the father ill, the German child dying and Beth ill. These 3 events really made sure that my hands were firm on the book. The sort of thing that Jacqueline Wilson would write about so this is great for 7-11 year old girls.

Loved it!! I think its great for young women today, and I particularly love the moral and godly aspects of the book. Modesty, humility and other honorable themes are presented in a non-threatening and captivating and humanly and funny way. And who can forget the romance and love...God truly does love us and care and I love how this book conveys it.
