It's written in an old-fashioned style, and a little harder to follow than some more modern literature, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Even the rhythm of the words takes you back to a sweeter simpler time which was in reality a very harsh time in American history. For the uninitiated, LW details the life of four teen-aged sisters in the Civil War Era. Aside from their father being away from home during the first part of the book the war is not a main topic. It's all about the relationships between these sisters, their mother, their neighbor and later their budding romances.
Take your time with this one. Read it slowly and savor.
As a child with no sisters, I read with wonder the day to day relationship between the sisters, leaving me envious and longing for that kind of closeness. When I first read this book, my youngest brother was very ill and died soon after, I felt such sorrow and empathy for frail, gentle Beth.
"Little Women" has the grace and charm of the 18th century and is a sparkling look into the fascinating world of girls as they become women. I recommend this classic novel to readers of all ages.
Although it is advertised to have illustrations my kindle edition didn't have any. Maybe it's just me.
I read the entire thing (over several months, the thing is thicker than an ordinary dictonay) and I feel it to be a great addition to your library. I would also recommend "Little Men" by Louisa May Alcott.
Disclaimer: Some parts are boring beyond words, just a few, but feel free to skip it. Or you could just plow through it like I did.
Hope this helps.😊
