Generations of readers young and old, male and female, have fallen in love with the March sisters of Louisa May Alcotts most popular and enduring novel, Little Women. Here are talented tomboy and author-to-be Jo, tragically frail Beth, beautiful Meg, and romantic, spoiled Amy, united in their devotion to each other and their struggles to survive in New England during the Civil War.It is no secret that Alcott based Little Women on her own early life. While her father, the freethinking reformer and abolitionist Bronson Alcott, hobnobbed with such eminent male authors as Emerson, Thoreau, and Hawthorne, Louisa supported herself and her sisters with womans work, including sewing, doing laundry, and acting as a domestic servant. But she soon discovered she could make more money writing. Little Women brought her lasting fame and fortune, and far from being the girls book her publisher requested, it explores such timeless themes as love and death, war and peace, the conflict between personal ...

Little Women Reviews
This really is one of my top 5 favorite books of all time... it never gets old.
I just love every single character and the entire story SO much that I don't even know what else to say. It's perfect. That is all.
And I know the movie is way different, but I still love that as well!
قرأت هذه الرواية في سن الخامسة عشر تقريبا
وهي رواية لطيفة اكتسبت شهرتها عبر السنوات
من خلال اقتباسها في أعمال سينمائية
وفي ابتداعات الرسوم المتحركة
بل حتى الأوبرا كان لها نصيب من ذلك
حيث ألف الموسيقار الأمريكي مارك آدامو أوبرا نساء صغيرات في عام

A classic! The book and movie both did me in... Tears!!
When I was 11 years old, I used to watch its anime show on a channel, that time I didn't know its name. I was merely interested in the show.
But thankfully, I remembered the names of the characters so that when I was in my higher secondary school, I saw this book in school library with the picture of four girls and their Mommy. I suddenly remembered the show.
Since that day I wanted to read Little Women.
When the librarian said that this book cannot be issued, I wasn't worried. I would to go to l ...more
Yes, yes. I'm a grown ass man reading this, but I'm not ashamed. I also read the "Twilight" sa-ha-ha-ga & a bunch of Charlaine Harris as well, remember? Some rules simply don't apply.
What I tried to do here was dispel the extra melodrama and embrace the cut-outs (fat trimmed out) of the Winona Ryder film. I was on the hunt for all the "new" (ha!) stuff that the regular person, well informed of the plot involving four young girls growing up (or in the case of Beth, not) never even knew existe ...more
So in keeping with my recent attempts to write reviews for all my five star reads here's one for my absolute favourite book from my childhood, Little Women.
This was the first hardback I ever read that had no pictures or any such things to tempt a child. I remember feeling quite grown up when I first read it as it was just a plain old red book that had lost its dust jacket many years previously. Nothing bright or colourful that would have tempted me in the years previous. I suppose I must have be ...more
Eesh, this was dull. I can't even try and appreciate it taking historical context into account. These little women are so blah. And they speak like they're reciting Hallmark cards half the time.
