More About the Author

Louisa May Alcott was both an abolitionist and a feminist. She is best known for Little Women (1868), a semi-autobiographical account of her childhood years with her sisters in Concord, Massachusetts. Alcott, unlike Jo, never married: "... because I have fallen in love with so many pretty girls and never once the least bit with any man." She was an advocate of women's suffrage and was the first woman to register to vote in Concord, Massachusetts.

Customer Reviews

I am 10 years old (almost 11) and would recommend this book for anyone 10, almost 11 and up.
M. Flynn
The only thing negitive I can say about it is that after reading the description of this book, I thought there would be more of her books in this one book.
Pam Koch
This is the fifth or sixth collection that I purchased that were published by MobileReference and they all good.

I know I could get all these books for free, but it was much easier for me to buy this. All the MobileReference versions I have tried are wonderful. With a working table of contents, you can go directly to the book you want to read.

Like the other reviewer I also knew I could get these works for free but I'm lazy (something I'm sure mobilereferences counts on) but they are reasonable and timeless.

I wanted to re-read Little Women because I'd just finished Geradine Brook's Pulitzer award winning book MARCH and found that I wanted to go back and have another look at Little Women.

Thus far I've read a good deal of the collection without quite getting back to Little Women. These stories are timeless but written in a day and time when moralizing in stories was more important that it is today. Alcott's characters are inherently good, the misdeeds they commit seem to pale beside the misdeeds of today's teens. The miscreants always repent and are forgiven, and all is rosey and bright.

Normally I don't care for a book unless someone dies in the first chapter, but these stories are a nice reminder of the kinder, gentler side of our human nature.

As a child, I loved Little Women and Little Men, but as I grew older, I also enjoyed some of Alcott's lesser known writing, so I was thrilled to find them all in one e-book. Alcott wrote during a time when people believed in God, thought parenting included teaching children to overcome their faults, and worked on correcting their own personality flaws, so these may not be for everyone. There's no sex, no "colorful" language, no drugs, only a mention of alcohol, and the romance scenes are few and very tame by today's standards. But they're good stories, some better than others, and if you liked Little Women (probably the best known) you'll probably like some, at least, of the others.

Only two books contained in the Kindle edition. The title should reflect that so that any buyer would make an informed decision based on accurate data. Really disappointed Amazon...please do something about this.

Update (April 9, 2012): Changed my rating from 1 star to 4 star. This actually contains the 23 books as stated, so please note you are getting what you've paid for. However, my initial error arose from the fact that the TOC is difficult to manoeuvre; really clumsy. Took a lot of going back & forth to discover all the books. Good value. Money well spent.

I love her books but since I have Nook and not the Kindle i have to use them on my computer. this one will not convert over to a working Nook book for some reason. Some of them are copyrighted and you can't do that anyway but this one particularly stops at 47% and won't go any further. Sure wish I could read it on my Nook instead of the computer.

It seems like I just purchased this book and it was at my house! I have never recieved anything so fast. The only thing negitive I can say about it is that after reading the description of this book, I thought there would be more of her books in this one book. But I am very pleased with my purchase!
