The reason I get nervous is because I already have an emotional connection to the characters. I already have an idea of how I feel the story should go. However, I was excited to see how Anna Todd would modernize LITTLE WOMEN to help make it relevant to today's current issues.
I can't express how disappointed I was. It started okay, but with each passing page (over the course of over 400 pages) it flung itself into a downward spiral which left me more than a little angry.
This is a character-driven novel, but lacks all that I loved about the original characters. First off, all of the characters act older than they really are. Though they are all teenagers, they are crude, vulgar, constantly talking about sex, and are disrespectful. They call their mother by her first name, Meredith. Even Beth doesn't call their mother 'Mom', which seemed very out-of-character.
Though Amy is only twelve-years-old, she also uses the F-word, talks about sex, and watches disturbing videos on the internet.
The girls do nothing but fight, their mother does nothing but drink, and there doesn't seem to be anyone, or anything, keeping the family together.
Since when does making something modern mean creating the most dysfunctional family you can? The original novel was full of heart-break, yet also hope, courage, love, and forgiveness. I saw very little of that here.
I also felt the girls weren't given the opportunity to change. Many of the heartbreaking incidents were removed, which didn't offer the growth opportunities that the girls had previously had. Those incidents had brought the family closer together, and made the girls stronger. Also, in the original novel we were able to grow up with the girls and see how their relationships resolved, as well as more of the people they became. There is no fast-forwarding in this novel, and I felt the pieces were left still scattered and broken.
This is a very rare moment for me, but I am giving THE SPRING GIRLS 1 out of 5 Stars.
The story is interesting in the sense the daily struggles of teenage girls, their budding awareness of their sexuality, their surroundings and entailing realizations
I found the characters not clearly etched, but thats just me.
Meg is the eldest , she's supposedly the leader and her mom's shoulder to prop on. But her physical attributes fascinated the writer more than her moral attitudes.
She's a bit promiscuous and is very aware of her effects on boys
Amy , though plainer in comparison, is by no means less attractive . She generally follows Meg
Jo is really wild in her imagination and attitude. Materialistic to a fault, she comes across a tad too insensitive at times. And she's a potty mouth !!! Very outspoken and opinionated, she can argue !!
Beth is the Baby and adorable
I'm going to be honest and say , calling their mom Meredith or marmee, irritated me a bit
All in all interesting story
Just my opinion -Classics shouldn't be messed with. End of !
Please go ahead and enjoy the book
