From Library Journal
How would one describe this latest recording of the classic story from Alcott (Little Men, Audio Reviews, LJ 11/15/96)? The answer must be, clear, competent, and unexciting. Laura Grafton is a precise reader, but her voice lacks expressiveness, and she makes little attempt to vocally differentiate (and/or animate) the characters. The result is an inoffensive and slightly dull rendering. There's nothing wrong; the tapes just won't grab the attention of the casual listener. The producer has made a praiseworthy attempt to reduce costs by having each cassette side carry double text. At $22.95, this tape set is an excellent value. Unfortunately, this double-track format requires a stereo cassette player with a fully functioning balance control. Most portable cassette players and some car stereo systems do not have this feature. Since, at least anecdotally, a large percentage of recreational audiocassette library borrowers are commuters or exercisers, one should consider whether this format would be used by patrons. Libraries purchasing this format might also consider purchasing (and lending) the associated headphone adaptor plugs. Recommended for libraries with limited audiobook budgets and/or appropriate user populations.AI. Pour-El, Iowa State Univ., Ames

Imagine my shock to discover that at the end of THIS edition, Jo has not written a book, Amy has not gone off to Europe, Professor Baer has not made an appearance of any kind and....you'll never believe this....Beth is still carrying on a conversation (I'm trying not to spoil the plot of the real thing here).
That's because, apparently, "Little Women" was initially published in two parts ("Little Women" and "Good Wives"), which are generally published as the same book. Whole Story has chosen to stop at the half-way point, so much of the story you remember, loved, cried, and laughed over is just not here.
Imagine getting only the first half of Tom Sawyer...leave him stranded on the island forever!
I feel completely conned. It's a five-star story - make that maybe even a seven-star story - but it's a one-star edition.
I was a bit disappointed to find that this book contains only part I of Little Women, ending with Chapter 23 ("Aunt March Settles the Question"). It does not have Good Wives (aka part 2 of Little Women). Luckily, I have what I call my "home copy" of the book which has both parts...so I don't feel like I've made a mistake in purchasing this one. But I thought I'd let you know this book only features part I so that you know what to expect!

I wish this was required reading when I was younger. I have ear-marked and highlighted some of the phrases because they are such gems. I will read and reread. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Amazon Customer
I love how this book alternates between characters and focuses on one per chapter. This keeps a focus for each chapter. Her writing is obviously superb, making this a classic. Read morePublished 8 days ago by corinnef1117
I never read this as a child, and as an adult I find it too sugary and too dull. I didn't get very far.Published 13 days ago by Saul
This isn't a color book! When I did a search for color books this was a choice. I was excited because I want this type of pictures. But it's a BOOK NOT A COLOR BOOK. Read morePublished 20 days ago by Theresa Sangre
The March's are bound by love and learn how to pursue their calling. Their life lessons make a good read for those who are fascinated with applied virtue.Published 24 days ago by anonymous
