Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Georgiana 1792 | 2/10/2014

    " Un po' deludente, troppo didattico e Rose troppo perfetta per essere vera. Vedremo se le cose cambieranno con Rose in Bloom, il seguito. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natasha | 2/8/2014

    " Wonderful, sweet classic story about a family that pulls together to raise their orphaned niece. Love all the boys in this story and the authors humor and style! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel N | 2/8/2014

    " Every bit as sweet and charming as Little Women. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 1/27/2014

    " I read this in fourth grade - it's really good then, angled towards a younger audience. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mackenzie | 1/27/2014

    " I had to read this for History. It was pretty good considering that it was like written like 100 year ago. But I felt like in some parts that it went through my ear and out the other. But I would for sure read this at lest one it gives you a great perpective at what it was like back then. Rose the main characher i found intreging and very interesting. My favorite part is near the end when they are reading part of "The Spider and the Fly" which was cool. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jess | 1/24/2014

    " After reading a few darker adult tales I desperately needed something light and fluffy. Eight cousins and Rose in Bloom are two old favorites of mine and I used to read them a couple times a year between 11-14 years old and I enjoyed them just as much this time. Not as well written as Little Women surely and certainly hasn't grasped as much attention but I personally love them both just the same :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Psalm | 1/22/2014

    " It was a great book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 JaNae | 1/20/2014

    " Don't remember this one super well. Guess I need to reread it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/19/2014

    " One of my favorite childhood reads. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margali | 1/8/2014

    " A little on the didactic side, as is the sequel, but still one I reread every few years. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Farah | 12/27/2013

    " Loved it! And I especially loved Louisa's inadverdant morality lessons and opinions on children's behavior! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 12/18/2013

    " So wonderful to come back to an old favorite and find it still to be as good as you once thought it was. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 J. | 12/17/2013

    " Always enjoyed this book, beneath the moralizing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise | 12/13/2013

    " or, The Aunt-Hill. I read this one to shreds. I wanted Uncle Alec to be my dad and I was in love with Mac. I wish Alcott had written ten more books than she did. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 12/7/2013

    " A wonderful book to give to a young girl to set her on the path to reading. I read this when I was 11-years old--three times that summer--I still remember the laughter, tears and warm feelings. Recommend everyone read it at least once. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 T. | 12/7/2013

    " While other people fell in love with "Little Women", I was reading "Eight Cousins". It's still my favorite Louisa May Alcott book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 9/10/2013

    " Enjoyed it far more than Little Women! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan Hawthorne | 7/8/2013

    " Loved this book - practically wore the pages through. Read it every summer when visiting my Aunt Daisy in NC "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bethany | 4/12/2013

    " Very funny and intriguing book, I loved it and wish she had written more!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anie | 2/22/2013

    " An engaging little book, not nearly as religious as Little Women. Rose is lovely, the boys are cute, and overall it's just a pleasant little read (though my opinion of it may be colored by having read it in childhood). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roxcy | 1/14/2013

    " My mom gave me a box of my old books the last time we were home and this one was in it. I liked it as much as I remembered liking it when I was younger. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maria Gonzalez | 10/23/2012

    " Liked this book, not as much as little women, but definitely liked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meridithrichards | 8/25/2012

    " Very cute. Reading the sequel. Wish my daughter would read this book. Wouldn't it be nice if children acted this way today??? Did they ever really act this way?? I can dream, I guess. Sometimes there was so much righteousness (for lack of a better word) that it was almost unbelievable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janice | 3/29/2012

    " I read this more than once as I was growing up. It was one of my favorite of the Alcott books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kendra | 2/28/2012

    " I loved this story. It is cute and a fun read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Casey | 2/21/2012

    " I looooooved this book when I was a kid. I thought her cousins were super cool, even if she was a bit of a sap. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gnmsmom | 1/10/2012

    " This is one I missed during my own childhood. I was looking for something light and cheerful to listen to on a road trip, and this absolutely fit that need. Just a really sweet book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha | 11/10/2011

    " I like her stories though she tends to get preachy at times. I think it's funny to read as she admonishes children not to read certain types of thrilling novels, when in fact she wrote many of them herself under a pseudonym. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mena | 10/24/2011

    " Though the title sounds like this could be "A West Virginian Love Story", it is nothing like that. I love this book and the sequel; I have since I was a child. The spirit that Rose, the heroine, is imbued with appeals to and inspires me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suicide Blonde | 6/3/2011

    " I read this book when I was around 12 or 13, it was my mom's favorite book when she was little and she gave me her copy of it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 5/21/2011

    " The book was very delightful. It reminded me a bit of 'Secret Garden'. I loved the theme of outdoors, laughter, fun, and great friends can really make a difference in your life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elisa | 5/10/2011

    " I enjoyed listening to this book. It was a fun story. The adventures of the boys are fun and I love uncle's experiments! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 4/21/2011

    " I really liked this book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meridithrichards | 4/7/2011

    " Very cute. Reading the sequel. Wish my daughter would read this book. Wouldn't it be nice if children acted this way today??? Did they ever really act this way?? I can dream, I guess. Sometimes there was so much righteousness (for lack of a better word) that it was almost unbelievable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristy | 4/1/2011

    " I loved this book when I was young - I can't wait for my kids to read it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gina | 3/23/2011

    " This book has a similar style to Alcott's Little Women, but it is about a delicate, young orphan girl. Her life takes a drastic change when she is brought to live amongst her seven boy cousins. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bettielee | 3/18/2011

    " Another childhood favorite. Somehow, Alcott makes her characters more than just people in a book. I still think of her characters almost as friends. I know that sounds weird, but I think it's a testament to the author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 sinta | 3/9/2011

    " Pengen punya paman kayak Paman Alec!! Dan ngebayangin kamarnya Rose sukses bikin iri "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tammie | 3/1/2011

    " It's Louisa May Alcott, what else do you expect? Great inspiring little book. I love how her Uncle Alec teachers her both educationally and morally. What a great man he was. He is definitely my favorite character. Seems to bring so much joy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allison | 2/2/2011

    " Love Louisa May Alcott. I feel so moral and wholesome! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 1/30/2011

    " I LOVED this story as a child - re-reading to see if the appeal is still there...

    What I liked in this story IS still there, but I think today's child would find Rose a little too good to be believed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruhee | 1/16/2011

    " good book! enjoyed it even thogh it was back in the day.
