And never think it is impossible to conuer your fault This is probably my fifth or sixth time through and yes I am totally going to read it again There s just something about this book that s absolutely gorgeous and timelessI love the sisters and their relationships with each other I see so much of myself and my cousins with their day to day interactionsJo the darling is the perfect mix of strength and fear Watching her grow from a brash girl to confident young woman just makes my heart happy You are the gull Jo strong and wild fond of the storm and the wind flying far out to sea and happy all alone And the message of the book Ahh My heart So fullIt often feels like the messages from books in the mid 1800s are saccharine sweet or so heavy handed with their themes that they re ridiculous Just look at the later Anne of Green Gables if you d like an exampleBut this one had just the right mixture of loving family religion life lessons It was beautifully balanced Be worthy love and love will come That being said I do absolutely hate that view spoiler Beth has to die hide spoiler I hated this bookI can t even begin to go into all the reasons I dislike this novel It s dull and preachy through out most of it aside from Jo who is a truly inspired character But everyone else seems one note most of the chapters come off as morality plays than solid scenes or plots And just when Miss Alcott has something seemingly interesting she breaks it for no other reason than to do somethingWhether its the pairing of Amy and Laurie huh the point made CONSTANTLY that Beth s life isn t useless because she is an angel and showed them that angels do exist and is a total Mary SueReally Cause I m glad she died before I died of boredom the forced pairing of Jo and the Professor Why I mean really Just eep her single there is also the message that pursing art is also the message that pursing art selfish Jo giving up her writing Laurie gives up his music Amy gives up her sketching It s not a message I expected this book is "always lauded as one that has inspired countless girls To do what Because outside of "lauded as one that has inspired countless girls To do what Because outside of s sipirt I dont really see much to aspire to in this tsory The overall message seems to be that as a good Christian one should sacrifice being an artist being in love with who you want and any hope of independence It s not because I m from the modern era that I dislike this book Or that I m an adult reading it If you look at other works being done in the same time period you will see that there were stories with less moralizing being done including by Miss Alcott herself I was just really disappointed 863 from 1001 Little Women Little Women 1 Louisa May AlcottLittle Women is a novel by American author Louisa May Alcott 1832 1888 which was originally published in two volumes in 1868 and 1869 Alcott wrote the books over several months at the reuest of her publisher Following the lives of the four March sisters Meg Jo Beth and Amy the novel details their passage from childhood to womanhood and is loosely based on the author and her three sisters 1998 1369 447 1374 9644457757 1385 1388 1393 9786001210532 19 1374 160 9646105122 1374 1375 1376 1374 127 1374 179 1375 160 9645680182 1380 1392 9789645680563 184 1375 160 1376 351 9644171527 1380 1388 1393 9789644171529 1381 88 9646465072 1388 58 9789642621866 1388 1389 1389 150 9789643032128 1389 489 9789643696627 1392 1393 1391 168 9786009007059 1393 114 9786009400164 1394 176 02071399.

Of the time when series start out in the childhood of characters and then follow their growing up the book gets worse But I always liked reading about this ragtag group of galsWarning spoiler ahead and if you complain about me spoiling a book that was published seven spoiler ahead and if you complain about me spoiling a book that was published seven my lifetime ago I will absolutely freak out so don t say I didn t give you a heads upObviously Jo and Laurie were meant for each other and his marrying Amy and Jo s marrying some random old dude was the biggest flaw of this book But even with that this book ended happy and I enjoyed almost every second of itOkay I m sorry but Amy is the clear weak link and didn t deserve Laurie I will not rejoice for them Did I have to take off a half star for that alone Yes Because it upset me immensely And I won t apologize If anyone should be apologized to it s ME And also JO And also LAURIEBut absolutely every other second was a pleasureBottom line This book feels like Christmas cozy comforted joy review to come currently reading updatesI am ready to feel COZY I am ready to feel COMFORTED I am ready to feel JOY Someone I now claimed this no longer has value that she would never recommend it because it s saccharine has a religious agenda and sends a bad message to girls that they should all be little domestic homebodies I say she s wrong on all counts This is high on my reread list along with Pride and Prejudice Jane Eyre and a Tree Grows in Brooklyn You Could Say That could say that m pretty familiar with it Let s see there s a heroine who not only writes but is proud of the fact and makes a profit from it in a time that this was somewhat out of the ordinary Reading this and especially nowing later that the main character is for all practical purposes Alcott herself inspired me to write myself and I haven t forgotten the writing lessons Old books get a bad rapbut do they deserve it Check out my latest BooktTube Video all about the fabulous and not so fabulous Olde Boies The Written Review Don t try to make me grow up before my time The March sisters may be radically different but they all have one thing in common love Their love for their mother and father their love for adventure and for each other unites them in this troubled timeThe Civil War is afoot and all the sisters can do is think about their father away and in battle Their mother tries to distract them but often she can barely distract herself Jo a radical tomboy and aspiring author rallies her family with her amusing plays and scribbles I like good strong words that mean something Meg the beautiful sister often puts her family first and holds them together when her mother cannot You don t need scores of suitors You need only one if he s the right one Amy the youngest was spoiled as a child and oh my it shows But even she can rally when life looks darkest I d rather take coffee than compliments just now Beth sweet and good natured valiantly cheers on her sisters but her frail health often Modern English in Action (Level 12) keeps her at the sidelines There are many Beths in the world shy and uiet sitting in corners till needed and living for others so cheerfully that no one sees the sacrifices till the little cricket on the hearth stops chirping The sisters must face hardships their New England home They must face things that they never would have thought possibleBut even in the darkest of times they will have each other And that is most important of all Watch and pray dear never get tired of trying.
