Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shari | 2/20/2014

    " I enjoyed this book. You learn more about the characters than the movies show. I always thought it was an interesting contrast to Gone With the Wind. How different the Civil war affected those living in the North and those living in the South. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elise | 2/19/2014

    " My dad read this to us during December for a number of years. Nostalgic and lovely for me to re-read and remember. "

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

    " What a sweet, refreshing, and wholesome read. I couldn't help but think of my 3 sisters, of our different personalities and of the way our dear mother raised us. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teresa | 2/15/2014

    " Beautiful imagery. Both of terrible loss and despair of that loss. But also great triumph of over coming great adversity and challenges. A must read for anyone who loves a novel full of true human emotion. One of the best coming of age novels and one of the most honest for girls. I first read it when I was 10 years old, and have read it 4 times since then. It is a true classic. "

    " zzzzzzzzzz... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Josilyn | 1/30/2014

    " It's easy to see why this is a timeless classic. Louisa May Alcott's tale of four sisters growing up while their father is away to war is a series of life lessons about love, wealth, friendship, and family. The tales of Meg, Jo, Amy, and Beth amused me, and taught me to appreciate what I have in my own life. The only qualm I have is that, being written in the nineteenth century, the style is a bit pompous and archaic, but the story is so charming and heartwarming that I didn't really mind. For once, this is a classic that I didn't have to read for English class, but I wish I did, because this is actually enjoyable, and still relevant to everyone growing up today. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fiorella Cecilia | 1/26/2014

    " One of my favorite books, every girl had a special gift.... And shows that everyone is special and to embrace it "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gina | 1/19/2014

    " Total melodrama, but a glorious look into an older time with different traditions and values. This was my grandmother's book that I loved to death. I always wanted to be Jo. I must go back and remember why. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracy | 1/15/2014

    " I read this as a girl and thought Jo was annoying and the littlest sister needed a good slap. And why shouldn't Meg have worn her best dress first? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 1/14/2014

    " OMG it was so long ago I can't remember! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rupertt Wind | 1/2/2014

    " Simple and amiable. Its a beauty to read and no doubt deserving to be a classic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peggy Wardrup | 12/23/2013

    " my all time favorite book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anne Neal | 11/26/2013

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leah Shelton | 11/12/2013

    " Beautiful new cover art - but I'm struggling with the internalized sexism and the way Alcott occasionally uses her characters as a vehicle for the Temperance movement in a way I didn't notice when I first read (and loved) this book as a kid. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan Miller | 10/26/2013

    " Can't believe that Jo didn't want to marry Laurie and Amy did. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shawn Dvorak | 9/2/2013

    " 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 Amanda | 7/5/2013

    " One of my favorite books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ann Gaines Rodriguez | 6/6/2013

    " I still remember so much of this book! And Little Men! That's why I think it rates five stars. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danielle Dunton | 5/23/2013

    " A classic that I used to read over and over again. I will never tire of this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yeammy Torres | 4/8/2013

    " A beautiful story about four sisters with very different personalities trying to develop their lives during wartime in USA. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alli Mcelvany | 4/7/2013

    " This is one of my favorite classics!!!! I love this book so much! It is a great book for people who dont like to read and read. It's a story of 4 girls and them growing up with some trials and blessings. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 N Perez | 1/16/2013

    " I read the book because I was intrigued. A classic but, I thought it was too long and slow at times but a good example of Christian principles and values as well as family unity. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fatface Waitakere | 12/2/2012

    " Beautifully gentle book which, thugh about the loneliness of a family deprived of their father as he's fighting in the Civil War, is never dark or melancholic. Each daughter is painted so well you almost feel they could be your friends. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christena Rulli | 11/28/2012

    " 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 Debra | 11/25/2012

    " I have always really enjoyed this book - except that Amy will drive me crazy every time! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sabrina Messenger | 10/16/2012

    " Top notch. Anyone who doesn't like this story has no soul! A delightful story set in the mid 19th Century but which people living in the 21st century can still relate. I would've loved to have had the March family as my next door neighors with their warm, love and slight non-conformity. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Natalia Taylor | 2/21/2012

    " I couldn't even read the first half. It's sooo SLOW!! Sorry, just my opinion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jocelyn | 1/27/2012

    " It was okay. Think I enjoyed it more in high school. "

    " Old favorite, nice to re-visit this old friend; wish my girls enjoyed it more, love Jo the best, doesn't everyone? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jackie | 5/24/2011

    " One of my all time favorite books. This book made me want to be a better mom while reading it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynnphotos84 | 5/22/2011

    " Very different from the movie. Can't wait to finish it :) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sophia | 5/22/2011

    " I did not like it at all. I think Louisa May Alcott ruined the entire book at the end
    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 5/21/2011

    " I read this a long time ago...but the book on my shelf is calling. I really want to read this again. Jo has to be my favourite character... "

    " I love this book!

    Classic story that I really like.
    I like Jo mostly!
    She's so smart and so enjoyable with her individual behavior who so brave and tomboy.

    " I just finished this book and I really liked it. I wish I had some daughters to read it to. Very insightful and lots of life lessons learned in this book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keely | 5/16/2011

    " I think it is really good to see how some families are coping without their father or other family members I would rate this book a must read!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 5/15/2011

    " I think I only finished this book because I would be up pumping in the middle of the night bored. But I finished it and while at times I was somewhat impatient and annoyed with the submissive "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Torin | 5/15/2011

    " Still a classic. But my husband won;t read it after you know who gets sick.... "
