    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ken | 2/11/2014

    " Thought this would be a chick book, but turned into an insightful view into the female mind circa late 19th century US. Some sage wisdom tucked into these pages. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gwendolyn Adams | 2/10/2014

    " One of my favorites of all time. Growing up with all sisters, I love comparing our lives. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bertiesugar | 1/30/2014

    " Was recommended to read it, but it is not my cup of tea "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan Bailey | 1/28/2014

    " Don't be fooled by the cover - it doesn't begin to tell the story. This is a gorgeous oversized edition (measuring 9" x 10" x 2") with an elegant choice of typefaces, filled with color plates, letters written by Louisa and her publisher Thomas Niles and commentary on each page which enhances the reading experience. Shealy introduces the book with an interesting essay about the extensive revisions made to the text between its original publication in 1868 and the revised version in the 1880s. In many respects the revisions were a response to negative criticism about the slang Alcott used throughout the book being a poor example for children! Fortunately Shealy uses the original text which is more vibrant and real. A second essay includes photos of each of the main players from the Alcott family. Alcott drew from the deep well of her personal life to bring Meg, Jo, Beth, Amy, Marmee and Laurie to life. Shealy includes analysis of the era, fascinating anecdotes and great trivia. If you love Little Women, you will want this edition as a keepsake to pass down to children and grandchildren. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anie | 1/15/2014

    " Another childhood re-read. There's no way to get around the fact that this is a very, very preachy book. Immensely preachy. I didn't notice it as a child, but certainly do now. (Of course, since it's a childhood re-read, I'm rather well-disposed to ignore said preachiness.) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bob Young | 1/2/2014

    " A lovely read that pulled me in more than I expected it would...long live Jo March... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shawn Dvorak | 1/2/2014

    " This was surprisingly entertaining, given that it was the vaguely autobiographical tale of Louisa May Alcott and her three sisters during the early 19th Century, and was written as a morality story for girls. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellie | 12/27/2013

    " An endearing story that never dies. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaret Skea | 12/21/2013

    " Great story, except, probably like many other readers, I disagreed with LM Alcott's choice of husband for Jo... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mala Moragain | 12/8/2013

    " This is a story that my Mother read to me as a child, so it's a personal favorite! I am so blessed to have been raised in a home of literature!!! And this book is one of those tales you carry with you forever! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracey | 12/4/2013

    " Librivox edition (mostly) through Craftlit "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa Smith | 12/3/2013

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Georgia Flanagan | 11/5/2013

    " I read this book years ago, it is one of my favorites. I believe every young girl should experience Little Women! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bookworm1976 | 10/24/2013

    " Another one that I can slip in to anytime, any place. A book that I am sure Jo would recommend reading whilst eating apples. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Gwen Snavely | 6/19/2013

    " I'm sorry but this book is soooo slow, and in my opion, unrealistic. I don't think anyone would be that content with being poor, and I don't think it's possible to be that happy all the time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sunandha | 12/5/2012

    " I am sure every girl out there who has read the book will be able to relate to one of the characters in the book. For me it was George.. What about you guys?? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth | 11/30/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maluz Quiroz | 7/3/2012

    " This book just make a lot of feelings came out of my chest, it's one of those light books that make you laugh, cry and believe in good things happening, is the perfectly way to spend a few hours all relaxed with a cup of coffee "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eleanor | 5/31/2012

    " I liked this book when I first read it when I was 9 and I still like it now. Only problem is that I know the story so well i know what is going to happen next. I loved how I felt like I was so similar to Beth! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica De Lellis | 12/23/2011

    " I loved this book. It was seriously one of the best books I've ever read. My AP English teacher called it "elementary", but it really wasn't. This book changed my life. For an "elementary" book it's deep. This book is also very relatable. I think everyone, both boys and girls,should read this book. "
