Little Women begins the much-loved story of the March sisters: Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy. The girls grow up amidst the turmoils, adventures, and hardships of the American Civil War. There is Meg, the eldest, plump and fair; Jo, the tomboy who longs to be a writer and fights against the constraints of her sex; Beth, shy, timid, and delicate, who brings out the protective instinct in others; and Amy, the youngest and brightest and, at least in her own estimation, the most important. The household is presided over by Mrs. March, their "Marmee," who tries to rule with kindness and to create harmony amongst her four little women. Download and start listening now!

    " i like the book but i really wanted Jo with Laurie and in all truth Jo only got a husband as to her author's critics and employeer. that is why i love anne of green gables more becuase anne changed her mind and saw that gilbert was all that she wanted and her silly romance ideas were simply hogwash. mr.bhaer is not a BAD man but he is just a man and she saw something in him that we do not see. He is older man and mind you older men was what she wanted. i mean copare laurie to bhaer. laurie is young,idealistic and hot-tempered and so is Jo but I think she was wrong for her choice but she seemed happy in her life with him but I think Laurie and Jo would be best together. But Bhaer is older,wiser-almost sage-wise and emotional. She likes him for who knows why and we can't change the book though you may right a billion lame fanfictions he still married young Jo and Amy who is still silly and stupid in my eyes as i have a youner sister who is exactly like her and anyway Amy is still the beloved wife of Laurie. They were eachother's first love nad first love sometimes cannot last unless the two people make it work through maturity and time. I think that if Laurie proposed later when they both had found themselves they would have been beautifully full of vigor and love and life. Besides he never supported her many passions and rituals and she was spunky and wild and he loved the chase. But she married a man we dislike but we cannot choose who loves who... I wish,we all wish that but we cannot it just happens like the stars shining it happens... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 bdavis | 2/18/2014

    " This book seemed boring to me at the begining. But when I really got into it, I couldn't stop reading. I loved how all the sisters were so differente, yet wanted the hapiness for each other and loved her mother and father the most. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica Clegg | 2/18/2014

    " This book has a great meaning and moral, but at times can be very dull. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristina Miranda | 2/17/2014

    " One of my favorite books of all time. My grandmother read it to me, chapter by chapter, when I was a little girl. A must read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aly Hughes | 2/16/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 2/16/2014

    " A staple of my childhood. I loved Jo, and whenever I wanted to immerse myself in reading or writing, I couldn't do it without thinking of Jo eating apples and writing or scribbling. For a long time, I thought that was how it HAD to be done. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Autumn | 2/15/2014

    " One of my all time favorite books. I've read it many times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaylie Singleton | 2/15/2014

    " Little Women is a great book which is based in the nineteenth century, and is about four girls who grow up and become women, all while their father is at war. I think older students would enjoy this, and the stories and struggles about growing older,and having to mature. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nina Griffin | 2/15/2014

    " One of my favorite books. I reread it every couple years. The characters are real and enduring...I and I still cry at all the sad parts, even though I know they are coming. I have also read the sequel for Jo...but have not read Little Men. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Astrid Phoenix | 2/14/2014

    " I read this as a child, and haven't read it in a long time, but I remember really enjoying it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shiloh | 2/12/2014

    " At first I thought the writing was a bit fru fru, and I wasn't sure I would like it, but the characters were so great that I was reading it one night and put it down to go to sleep and I began praying for the characters and had to remind myself that they are not real. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly Knutson | 2/11/2014

    " Little Women is beautifully written, capturing an endearing story of the purest love amongst sisters - that is a range of heart break, rage, growth, compassion, disappointment, and laughs all resulting in a heart felt classic that will live on forever! It is a must-have for anyone with sisters or girlfriends. Or a simple desire to journey into the lives of four sisters and experience the full range of emotions as only sisters could overcome, endure and delight. It. is a lovely read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judy Mahan | 2/9/2014

    " Read in the 1950's as a young girl. I loved it then. "

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

    " A simply lovely novel, without a "sensational" plot it still manages to entertain, teach and make you love each and every character. "

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

    " Now, if she had been the heroine of a moral storybook, she ought at this period of her life to have become quite saintly, renounced the world, and gone about doing good in a mortified bonnet, with tracts in her pocket. But you see Jo wasn't a heroine; she was only a struggling human girl, like hundreds of others, and she just acted out her nature, being sad, cross, listless or energetic, as the mood suggested. ~ Louisa May Alcott "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 7703viola | 2/7/2014

    " This is a fiction/auto biography book because it's like a fictionized version of the author's life. It's the story of 4 girls and their struggles and adventures. I really liked this book because there was a lot of detail in it. Anyone who is looking for a classic to read should definitely read this(even boys!). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Betsy | 2/4/2014

    " Wonderful. I enjoyed it so much more as an adult. Everyone should reread it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samaira | 2/4/2014

    " A nice story to cuddle up with. Full of love and relationships, differences coming together and standing together as a family. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anne Neal | 2/3/2014

    " Loved it. My mum read it to me when I was a child and I have now done the same with my daughter. What a beautiful, heartwarming, sad story. Jo is by far my favourite character. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keila | 2/3/2014

    " Another classic that made me think in the possibility of becoming a writer. I wanted to be Jo March. "

    " Old time favourite-passed it on to my little women, my daughters "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Eloise | 1/30/2014

    " This book is so boring. I have never read anything so uninteresting. Having tea all the time is not a good subject for a book. Maybe I am unfair but I was forced into reading it by a friend and I really actually almost fell asleep. It is not for someone who likes action. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cynthia Murphy | 1/28/2014

    " This was and still is a favorite book of mine! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Orena Beqiri | 1/28/2014

    " Quite a dull rendition of young love - especially with such inconsistent characters. When all is set and done, had this story been sold in 2 parts, I'd have only bought the first. The second story ruins the magic of it all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Softwhitelightbulbs | 1/26/2014

    " I remember this being the first "real" book I had read as a child,ya know, the kind without pictures. My grandmother had given it to me, and was very special to me not only because it was a gift, but because of the story of the lives inside the book. Anyways, I remember finishing this book in just a few days, I was torn, happy, sad, and hopeful during this book, and it will be a classic fora very long time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa Smith | 1/24/2014

    " This book is so old-fashioned and out-dated(or just a study in a different time period.) but I'm reading it to my daughter and remember why it was one of my favorites in elementary school. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pat | 1/24/2014

    " I loved this book as a child, and I finally became absorbed in it half way through. But it really is not the book that I remember (though it was unabridged), which says more about me than it does about the book. It is still a classic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joy | 1/23/2014

    " Absolutely love this book! I love the complexities of each sister and how Jo's feminist nature is so eloquently described. A must read! "

    " Little Women (Chapter 47 - The Last) I gave you time and my attention, but in return I got something much worthwhile: a family to join, a friend to gain, a lesson to learn and best of all a sense of my internal innocence. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kari Talbert | 1/21/2014

    " I loved this book when I first read it growing up. To me, Jo and her sisters were good role models--independent, loving, hard-working, not afraid to dream even in hard times. Now I read it to my daughter. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Abby Miller | 1/20/2014

    " I loved the idea of a book teaching values. This book tells you about respect, friendship, honesty, responsability, in a pretty direct way. And I enjoyed that for a while...up until 70% of the book. Then I just lost interest. It got boring. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Izola Sapia | 1/5/2014

    " This is probably my favorite book ever. I get so caught up in the story each time I read it, and I still cry. I am one of four sisters, so I can't help comparing ourselves to the March sisters. I love this book, and I think everyone should read it at least once in their lifetime. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sofia Amorim | 1/4/2014

    " It has been several years since I have read this book but I do remember it is beautifully written account of a mother and 4 sisters during the Civil War and several years after. The path of the story follows the rhythm of life, pain and joy in equal measure "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dannibeth Farnum | 6/15/2013

    " One of my favorite books ever! I love Alcott's style of writing, her details make the story come alive through all 5 senses. I can hear Beth playing the piano and smell the fire wood burning. I try to read this book as often as possible! "

    " This may be a classic but the girls were so saccharin sweet I couldn't bare it. I like my protagonists a bit more real. "

    " Fantastic book! I loved each character equally for different reasons. Of course, it's easier to relate to Jo but I always felt a small connection to each of the sisters. Easy to read over and over again. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jenna | 4/14/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christena Rulli | 7/18/2012

    " Just like all of Dicken's books, Little Women is one that I have read several times over the years. It's one of those books that your thoughts on certain issues change as you reread it and as you get older. It's a classic that is parallel to Jane Eyre and Jane Austen's novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Goad | 7/15/2012

    " Jo, Beth, Marmie, etc reading this book was an experience that I often repeat. I even liked little men! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martha Johnson | 5/15/2012

    " So fascinating now to think of the novel and to understand so much more about ALcott herself. The biographies that have come out are illuminating and one is constantly struggling to understand a girl/woman/writer in relation to her mother and father "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna Hosie | 3/27/2012

    " This book doesn't blow me away, and I find Jo really annoying, but it is a rather sweet book that shows lovely sibling dynamics. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danielle Simmons | 3/19/2012

    " This is a really good book. It is one of my favorite. I love all the sisters and how each of their personality adds to the book. I think girls would like this book more than boys but, this is a must read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bess Boschetti | 1/3/2012

    " This is my favorite book. I love how Alcott tells us the story of the girls growing up. There's no violence, just a little bit of love, and is mainly a coming-of-age story. This book makes me feel content. Overall: sweet and sincere "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christine Adye | 12/31/2011

    " This is one of the best books I have ever read and it's a timeless classic. I highly recommend this book to young women because you related to one or all the characters in this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tailsmo | 7/1/2011

    " I do like the definition of the March family living in poverty - no one works, they have a maid and wait for their rich relatives to take them on a grand tour for months on end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie Sutfin-hanlon | 5/28/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aimee | 2/6/2011

    " Couldn't finish it. It was too slow and I wasn't interested. Maybe I will revisit since it was middle school when I read it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joan | 1/24/2011

    " Was a good family orientated story, what I was bale to read of it. For soome reason, got to a certain part and the ereader just went blank. So don't know how it finishes. Oh well never mind, sure I can find another book to read. "

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

    " I first read this about 1993. All I can say is I loved it; tragic but one of those books that gave me a sense of how families should be. And, I will never forget . . . literature professor Grace always said if you want a great example of proper use of a semicolon, you'll find it here! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shirley Turner | 12/17/2010

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 11/29/2010

    " This book was given to me as a gift and I was inspired by the strength of the characters even at my young age and even thought the writing was not as in-depth as the novel. I've hung onto this book until this day. I read it now to my daughter. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 ✬♆✬ƤƦøɱϵϵȶ⍺ | 9/18/2010

    " This is a great novel depicting love, family and relationships. I loved it. Also shows that women in those times also had plenty of courage and self-confidence etc. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan Stolz | 7/9/2010

    " I'd first read Little Women as one of the Great Illustrated Classics series. I liked it, although it wasn't my favorite compared to some of the other adapted classics. Still, it's a good book and an important piece of American literature. It's comforting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martha Johnson | 5/23/2010

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandra Raby | 2/18/2010

    " My addiction when young. If you loved Little Women, you must read her other books that continue the story. Jo's Boys and other novels let the reader become lost in the family again! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Molly | 2/14/2010

    " Initially, I didn't like this book because it felt rather pointless. After further reflection, it seems to me that this book is like the precursor to sitcoms; each chapter is like a new episode with new "adventures." It wasn't half bad. Not my favorite, but not too horrible. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kerry | 9/23/2009

    " A wonderful story about the March family. It's a good old fashioned heart warming tale of one family's struggles, successes, day to day lives & the love that holds them all together. I could read it time and time again, great for children & adults alike. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Phoebe | 3/11/2009
