An Apple Books Classic edition.
Meet the Marches! Louisa May Alcott’s classic introduces us to four unforgettable sisters: beautiful Meg, tomboyish Jo, delicate Beth, and Amy, the indulged youngest of the lot. With their father serving as a Union chaplain, the Marches help their devoted mother, Marmee, make ends meet as their fortunes dwindle. The book starts with the family performing a small act of kindness for a family even less fortunate than they are and expands from there, drawing us in as the March girls grow up-and experience joy, hardship, failure, heartbreak, success, and love.
Alcott’s novel draws from her own life story. She herself was one of four sisters who all struck out on different paths. Open the pages of >Little Women and fall into a world of innocence and generosity-one that you’ll want to return to again and again.
A definite 5 out of 5 offered stars. I read this book during the summer of 2020, and I practically devoured it. It is an exceptionally charming read, and it goes through two of the things that young women will experience - love and loss. Although this book wasn’t dreadful loss after dreadful, heartbreaking loss. It had its sweet and rather wholesome moments, and the important lessons that the four of them learn throughout the book are so well developed and expressed. This is a wonderful story, might I even say work of art, by Miss Alcott.55
But way too long story45
When I was a kid I watched the movie Little Women with Shirley Temple in it and I loved it and always wanted to read the book. I downloaded it 2 weeks ago and at 56 I have read it. However, I found a lot of it very boring and skimmed through quite a bit of it, though I was determined to finish it because I never like to start a book and not finish it.45
i love you jo march55
a lovely story45
Of course, I’m okay for this.35
A wonderful story of three sisters growing up and all of their challenges and tribulations.55
I was so surprised I liked this book so much because the verbiage was difficult at times. But that is what. The book so amazing!45
This classic is well worth the little time and effort needed to appreciate its timeless value. A relatively small cast of characters and straightforward plot lines make for easy but enjoyable reading.55
