Grade 5 Up—Louisa May Alcott's 19th-century classic is the story of the March sisters—Meg, Jo, Amy, and Beth—who live with their beloved Marmee, while their father is away serving as a chaplain during the Civil War. They must make many sacrifices during this time, but they learn that happiness is not dependent on riches, and trouble doesn't last forever. Rebecca Burns's homey, perfectly modulated voice easily moves from one character to another, and her narration for the male characters is credible. The CDs include tracking every three minutes. The companion ebook features automatic start-up, keyword searching, PDF printable format, table of contents, and index. A great choice for classes studying New England family life during the Civil War period—Kathy Miller, Baldwin Junior High School, Baldwin City, KS

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

I cannot tell you how disappointed I was to finally receive this book and realize that this is not the same book we admired so much!!! While the cover looks the same, this book more likely resembles a thick magazine. Gone are the pictures. The front cover illustration is no more than a cheap photocopy of the original. What is the most disappointing is the font. It is so miniscule - you will break your eyes trying to read this book.
The delivery of this book took a couple of weeks, very strange and unusual for Amazon. Now I am suspecting, that the publisher is just printing those books on demand and does it very cheaply. I am returning this book. Do not judge the book by its cover, but this "book" is not a book I was looking for! This is not even a book! Very sad that the publishers stopped printing classics because people stopped reading and buying them...
