The lovable Jo March, introduced to us in Little Women, is now married with two sons of her own and an adopted family of 12 boys. And she couldn't be happier. Since starting an informal school at Plumfield, Jo and Professor Bhaer provide a haven for poor orphaned boys who thrive on warmth, goodness, and the affectionate interest of the March and Bhaer families. Sometimes it's difficult to tame the wild manners and spirits of wild boys who have had no nurturing. But the Bhaers have time for all and are rewarded with the trust of the boys who confide all their hopes, plans, ambitions, and misfortunes. Download and start listening now!

    " The best of the the three (four) March Family volumes focuses on the boys and girls attending Jo's Plumfield, the country estate left her by Aunt March, where she operates a boys school (and also has a few female students) near her hometown of Concord. Each has distinctive character flaws, like the first section of Little Women, that they choose to try to overcome, some with more success than others. Moral views of the time are also studied, through Jo's admission of poor boys as well as wealthy, and orphans to whom she is a pseudo-parent with her husband, Fredrich Baher. The male reader will enjoy this entry much more than the prior, but the small roles played by likable March family characters makes for disappointment; if Jo wasn't your favorite sister, you may not like this book (Laurie and Meg, respectively, are my two favorite characters in the entire series, and also Meg's husband, John Brooke). Jo is annoying at times; the antics of the young boys and the trials of the older ones make this book more satisfying than the prior---there should be at least one character, male or female, each reader takes to heart, from the large ensemble cast.

    " Another re-read. Not as good as 'Little Women' (one of my all time favorites) but good. Very preachy but you have to wonder if more people read and followed some of the philosophies expounded by Alcott, Thoreau and Walden if the world wouldn't be a better place. "

    " I love Little Women - and Little Men is along the same vein but I didn't get into it as much as Alcott's best seller. Still a charming read though. "
