Listener Opinions

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

    " 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. "

    " Wonderful story. Touching. Heartfelt. Beautiful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yeammy Torres | 2/6/2014

    " 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 Christine | 2/1/2014

    " I read this several times as a kid. I adored the characters, the story, the life dramas..I'd give it four stars, except for the fact that I always felt slightly dissatisfied with the way it ended. Some day I'll read it again as a grown-up, and see if my perspective has changed at all. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellie Jean | 1/21/2014

    " I cried. I cried a lot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nina Griffin | 1/18/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah Young | 1/15/2014

    " One of my favorite books "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristie | 1/11/2014

    " Finally done with this one. Was determined to finish it though. It has its fine points. I like how it got all tied up at the end though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shelly | 12/21/2013

    " Loved it!! One of those books you can reread 10000 times!! :) "

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

    " Probably my favorite book/movie ever. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diana | 12/5/2013

    " As I previously posted, this is actually March by Geraldine Brooks, not Little Women. The first half was fairly dry and I wasn't eager to finish it. I loved Ms. Brooks's previous works, and I expected so much more from this one, especially since it won a Pulitzer Prize. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Annette Suann | 11/19/2013

    " One of mt all time favourites "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cwelshhans | 11/16/2013

    " I just find this book so comforting. I had not read it in years, and perhaps without the nostalgia factor, I would have found the writing too precious and the plotlines too sexist. Instead, I just enjoyed it so much and appreciated all of its virtues. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erica Musyt | 11/2/2013

    " I have always loved this story! It was a little tough for me to get through. After all, I'm so used to the Winona Rider movie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne Louise | 10/23/2013

    " It's a wonderful book, if occasionally preachy. Just don't bother with the abridged versions. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bretont | 9/16/2013

    " It's my favorite book and I cried. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Syamim | 8/28/2013

    " GREAT book of all time. Kept reading it every year. I'm the combination of Jo and Beth so imagining thing wouldn't be so hard though I loved to see Jo end up with Teddy. Altogether, still a very good book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Victoria | 8/16/2013

    " i read it whilst learning to knit, and learning to read aloud with mum ... subsequently didn't really like it that much, but do like the film :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shouq | 7/29/2013

    " I really did enjoy it and its one of those books that keep you going. I would've finished it in a day but i couldn't, thanks to school. Such a great book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie Sutfin-hanlon | 7/27/2013

    " A re-read of a cherished book from childhood. Though set in the Civil War era, many of the situations continue to be pertinent to modern times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica Baumgartner | 6/10/2013

    " I cannot remember how many times I've read this growing up and each time it is still as encompassing if not more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandi | 4/15/2013

    " One of my top 10 fav. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elaine Orr | 4/11/2013

    " Some books stay with you forever. I can still see the sisters sitting close together by the ire, reading to each other or sewing. This is also the first book that made me cry! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Corrie | 3/29/2013

    " One of my favorites as a child. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eat5hams | 2/12/2013

    " Just as moving as the Audio Drama version by focus on the family. Seriously on my "everybody should read this" list. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Desiree Boils | 1/4/2013

    " The characters are very original, and I got so involved with them that when something bad or sad happened I cried right along with the character's in the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Renee Johansson | 12/6/2012

    " Quite possibly my favorite novel ever! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Armaine | 11/30/2012

    " It well suited me and my idle ways for the summer. Furthermore, it inspired me to be more patient and sincere. This "domestic drama" is quite a good read for girls within Amy and Meg's age range. "
