I've dubbed this book the adult sequel to Alcott's "Little Women" and encouraged those in my study group to re-read Alcott's book before reading "March." "March" is an extremely thought provoking story of the pains of war and the agony of being separated from family. There is running through this novel, the question of how one deals with one's personal concept of courage and responsibility to loved ones and strangers. Geraldine Brooks paints pictures of her characters in the readers minds that make them seem very real. Her use of actual historical people and events make one forget that this is actually a fictional piece. An excellent book and one that stimulated much discussion in my study group in several categories; the slavery issue, the horrors of war, family separation, Rev. March's faith and Christian beliefs, and personal courage today.

This author is skilled in writing about upsetting, brutal, believable events in a beautiful language that somehow gets you through. This book is filled with powerful conflicts, physical & psychological & is generally a pretty heavy read. Excellent character development & extremely thought provoking. Recommended for those in a strong mind set.

Good story; well researched with many arcane facts woven in. Well worth the time it takes to read it. Nice take off from the classic.

This is how history could become fun to learn. It certainly was fun and easy, and now I know a lot more about the Civil War and the times that made it happen.

The minor character of the father in Alcott’s Little Women comes to life in this remarkable book. Imagining his years away in the Civil War and his ultimate return, Brooks has created a novel that stays in one’s memory and heart. A lovely bit of writing and a Pulitzer Fiction winner.

I didn't find it up to the standard of the other books by Geraldine Brooks (which are outstanding!), but an interesting and thought-provoking read.

"March" exceeded my expectation. I have come to expect a superior read from Ms Brooks, her research intio the time period she is taking u s through is so well written that you do indeed feel "you were there". I look forward eagerly to my next excursion with Geraldine Brooks. In the meantime I felt that "March" put a fitting conclusion to the world of "Little Women".
