5.0 out of 5 stars perennial favorite for the ages February 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very early reader, I received a copy of "Little Women" at age 7. From the very first time I read this lovely book, I fancied myself as Jo, and so thoroughly identified with her that even through all the succeeding decades and thousands of other books read, this book will remain one of my top five favourite books because of her. I read and reread this book sitting in a big apple tree in my parent's back yard, laying on the grass on a summer's day, and under the sheets with a flashlight I now suspect my parents knew I had stashed under my bed.

In an age of easily digested and mass-produced books with weak characters and plot, "Little Women" is a stand-out that resists the passage of time for its exemplary characters, theme of family unity, and love on so many different levels (friendship, familial, true love, and romantic love).

Readers today might find the writing and occasional chirpiness of the March sisters when faced with their poverty a bit difficult to relate to, but knowing stories of how my own mother and sisters faced the Depression and then WWII in the UK made me realise from an early age that trying to find things to rejoice in is essential to surviving tragedy and loss on a personal level.

The March sisters encapsulate female society in most countries even now, and are well-written individual characters, each with a different goal they wish to fulfil in life. The girls do not become career women, and their parents do preach the importance of family life and sacrifice, however, each one does what was expected of young girls at that time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classics are sometimes best October 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I read "Little Women" when I was in junior high school and I loved the book. I decided to re-read it and I am glad I did. So much fiction today is lacking in plot, character development, and thought, in short, this is good literature. This is one of the best books around for people of all ages. I so appreciate that the March family experienced the joys and pains of everyday living and handled both with dignity, spirit, and a genuine love for each other. Even though poor, the March family rose above it. So many lessons are taught in this book that young people, particularly, could benefit from reading it. I will add this to my reading list of books that I read every couple of years!

4.0 out of 5 stars A re-read for me October 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I managed somehow to never read this book as a youngster but corrected that when I was in my 20s. Since it had been so many years (about 30) and I was getting ready to read March by Geraldine Brooks, I wanted to go back and re-read this first novel.

As many other reviewers have said, this story starts off quite slowly and I was initially disappointed. It wasn't the book I remembered. Deciding to stick with it, I kept going and it picked up steam as it went along becoming the book I enjoyed previously.

I wonder how young girls react to this now when "The Hunger Games" and "Gossip Girl" seem to be the norm and are so vastly different from this. The early stages are sugary sweet and there is quite a bit of preaching on religion and morals throughout that might make the younger ones roll their eyes a bit. While it has largely aged well, it must be read for the time period in which it was written.

I am very glad I re-read it as an adult.

3.0 out of 5 stars An Old Classic April 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Incredibly moralistic tale. Classic that I had never read and was free to download, so though I would give it a shot. Worth the read just to know it as a piece of history. Not exactly a page turner for me, but a nice hint of nostalgia.

5.0 out of 5 stars love it of course October 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
great book of all times. I enjoyed this best in its audio book version, as it is very long, but the words are the same, so enjoy either way. A classic that all women should read.

This is an AWFULL printing of a great story. There is no formatting; it is like someone clicked print on an ebook. Seems very scam-like. The cover art is pixelated. There is no table of contents, no page breaking at chapter breaks, almost no formatting such that the text runs off into the margins and paragraphs are barely distinguishable. The story is a classic, this publication is not what you want.

Filled with human frailties, hopes and desires; love does indeed triumph. Time does not mar Little Women - it has earned its place among the classics for everyone.
