    NOT the Whole Story!!!

    This is a wonderful classic and the format is fantastic. However it is a little known fact that Little Women was published in two separtate volumes, the first in 1868. This version is only part one of what has been traditionally recognized as Little Women since 1880. At the end of this story Beth is still alive! This is ridiculous. It is such a shame because my daughter loved reading this book but now needs to continue reading from another complete copy of Little Women. The publisher did the same thing with Heidi. In their version Clara never makes it up to Grandpa's and that should have tipped me off about Little Women.

    Good

    Good, classic novel. Never had to read it in school so decided to read it as an adult. Was pleasantly surprised. A little slow at some points but glad I read it since it is considered a classic.

    THE GREATEST BOOK OF ALL TIME

    This book is very touching and how they showed kindness to each other. And yes it is a very long book but I think it is worth reading it. In my opinion this is a must read book during middle school to high school. But I as an adult think you shiuld read this bokk again when you are an adult because you might find some thing you never noticed when you are reading it. This book is a real historical fiction book af it shows love for each other and I am not ashamed to tell you tis but I cried at some parts of this story because it was soooooooo touching. Parents/gardian you have to tell your kids to read this book because it changed my life when I was 12 years old. And this was the first time I read this book and I am really happy that I read this book. I hope you are goin to read this book and HAPPY READING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Alicially

    This is a very good book and I think anyone who likes reading would enjoy it. Although it is taking me a while to read. It keeps on getting stuck when I try to read it and I can't find the page I'm onand that is really annoying but other then that i think this is a very good book.

    ALL Time Favorite Author

    this is my favorite book of all time, one I re-read every year around Christmas time - nothing will ever be able to compare, even Pride and Prejudice (which is also one of my favorites).Little Women was originally written in two volumes: Little Women and then Good Wives; today these two books are combined, so will be my review... ((this may be a bit long of a review so bare with me - there is just soo much to cover in this book))

    Loosely based off of her own life, Alcott presents a story about four women who grow both individually and together as a family during times of trouble, turbulence, and peace. Each sister has their own hopes and dreams, and each sister finds their place in the world only after discovering heartache, pain, love, and loss. Jo, who is loud, rambunctious, hard headed and impatient, finds solace through her writing. She struggles greatly to find peace within her self and accept herself as she is. Meg, the oldest remembers a time when the March family was revered and was not in financial hardships, making it hard for her to accept life as is, all the while being kind and understanding to her young sisters. Beth, the quite and timid sister, who is always kind and sees the good in everyone and everything, desires nothing more than to remain at home with her family and dolls. Amy, the youngest of the sisters, is constantly concerned with how prime and proper she should look, act, and speak, but remains true to her character.

    Laurie, the boy next door, finds himself a home he never expected in the March household as he finds it hard to live up to his grandfather's expectations of him. He is seen as an older brother to all the sisters, never faulting in his devotion to them, that is until his feelings for Jo grow into something more. However, Jo is unable to see Laurie and he wishes and her desire to find her place in the world is never greater.

    You really see the divide between childhood and adulthood when each of the sisters go their own way: Meg gets married, Beth remains at home, Amy travels abroad to Europe, and Jo goes to New York (Laurie is also left to his own devices, first going off to college and then working for his grandfather in Europe). It is only when tragedy hits the sisters, are they all able to come back together, as new adult women.

    While this novel is filled with girls knitting, needlepoint, and darning (which were expected of women of the time), it goes much deeper than that. Alcott presents the constant struggle that many women had, and even many women of today, between their loyalties to their family as well as to theirselves, and trying to find a balance between the two. This is a wonderful novel that can teach anyone many different lessons about life and love and family.

    Anyn: part two of the story at burgur res six...

    Letting out a sigh, he stepped inside the house. His aunt, most likely still on the stupid game, yelled at him,"Take of your dam shoes! You're making a racket with your footsteps you dunce!!" "My footsteps aren't even audible you 'dunce'!" He paused midstride and rolled his eyes. His aunt was nearly always wrong when it came to his outfit and the way he presented himself, but she always managed to remind him about things he should have done in the place of say "taking off his shoes", like removing his jacket and backpack. He chuckled to himself as he removed it and set it on a rack in the closet near the door. As he puts back his backpack on, he comes up to his aunt and sees headphones on her and a mirror reflecting the front door to her. He throws his hands up in exasperation,"Aunt, seriously!!? You can't even HEAR ME!!!" He shakes his head and made an effort of making huge steps to the stairs, stomping as loud as he could. He jumped up the flights of stairs to the third floor in wide strides. He walked down the hallway and hummed a lively tune. At his door, he paused and saw a note on the handle. It read "Clean your freakin rom yo brat!" He smiled as he saw the misspells. He ripped the note in quarters and stuffed it into his jean pocket. He turned the cold handle and entered into his room. It was clean, as always. What he didn't get was why his aunt thought a trashcan full of crumpled papers full of his sketches was a mess. He takes a deep breath and bups his head on the chandlier,"Oh. My gosh. I moved that stupid thing up three inches yesterday!" He yelled at the gothic light adornement. His aunt had most likely moved it down so the chain suspending it wasn't pulled up. He reached up and pushed the chandlier out of the way, only to have it crack back into his head when it swung back. He rubbed the back of his head in annoyance and a scrunched up face,"Whatever. Too much work for a day. I'm not fixing you until my brain cells fully heal." He says talking to the still swinging light. He turns around and surveys his bland room. A simple bed, a small desk, and a chair with a lamp. Why couldn't he do his drawings here, because of the camera that would be constantly watching him. He thought about his aunt. Why would she play video games when she had soooo many drawing untencils and the such? She wastes time on the pc when she could be making art. Real 'dunce' i am...he sat on his baed, rolling his eyes at the camera. It wasn't on, yet. It came on only when she was in bed, and it didn't stop rolling until she could stop it. He thought of moving to another room so she couldn't see. But when he did try, she put cams in all rooms. So no matter where he went, her stupid black, empty, and unfeeling eyeball would be following his every innocent move. She started this madness when her art went missing two years ago, when his mother died in a train wreck off of the nearest highway. His aunt was superstitious and thought her "evil sister" had been haunting the house. He lauged at the notion of ghosts and layed back in his bed. Still in his clothes, he sighed and watched the moon cascade down the horizon to the east. His eyes sparkle as he sits up and crosses his legs, watching the moon with more intensity. His vision began to blur and the flashbacks began anew. He smiled faintly as he remembered the nature walks,"Okay. Yeah step there, no no!! Now you're wet!" He remembered the laughing, they were rossing a river...the visions stopped and he slept.
