About Louisa May Alcott.
Little Men and Other Works by Louisa May Alcott (Unexpurgated Edition) (Halcyon Classics)
She had a rich imagination and often her stories became melodramas that she and her sisters would act out for friends. Louisa preferred to play the "lurid" parts in these plays, "the villains, ghosts, bandits, and disdainful queens.
I will make a battering-ram of my head and make my way through this rough and tumble world. In , when she was 22, her first book Flower Fables was published. A milestone along her literary path was Hospital Sketches based on the letters she had written home from her post as a nurse in Washington, DC as a nurse during the Civil War. Every word rang as familiar to my eyes and heart as a forgotten Christmas Carol. But, but I don't remember ever finishing the book -- until this time.
It's written in an old-fashioned style, and a little harder to follow than some more modern literature, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Even the rhythm of the words takes you back to a sweeter simpler time which was in reality a very harsh time in American history.
Aside from their father being away from home during the first part of the book the war is not a main topic. It's all about the relationships between these sisters, their mother, their neighbor and later their budding romances. Take your time with this one. Read it slowly and savor. This is for the Kindle Edition: The story needs no review, but the illustrations can be a problem. They work fine on the Kindle app on my ipad. On my Kindle Fire, however, the illustrations don't work right and it causes you to loose the first sentence in each chapter.
Not a real problem, but you should try for a sample first to see how that works on your device. The illustrations are nice.

Although it is advertised to have illustrations my kindle edition didn't have any. Maybe it's just me. I read the entire thing over several months, the thing is thicker than an ordinary dictonay and I feel it to be a great addition to your library. Some parts are boring beyond words, just a few, but feel free to skip it. Or you could just plow through it like I did. Literally could not follow the paragraphs, sentences, or line of text. This is a book I've read many times, and with a bit of nostalgia, decided to reread.
Deleted after one or two chapters and repurchased a different edition. Don't waste your time.
A story of love and family. Little Women is a timeless classic. The story is told in two parts. The first part focuses of the four young March daughters: Meg, Jo, Amy, and Beth. The story is told in the nineteenth century in a town setting. The March family is a loving family with a wise and lady mother who is trying to teach values, empathy, and love to her four daughters, while their father is a chaplain in the Civil War. The family is poor and struggle with finances.
But the girls, led by rambunctious tomboy Jo, have wonderful times as they read, sketch, write and perform plays, and invent secret clubs. Each girl is different in character with ladylike lovely Meg, boyish Jo, elegant Amy, and home loving, faithful Beth.

Jo and her family adopt the motherless and fatherless rich boy and neighbor, Laurie into their family. There is love, laughter, sisterly quarrels, and sadness woven into a beautiful family story.
In the second part, the story begins with the marriage of the oldest sister, Meg. Jo pursues her interest in writing. Amy has ambitions of becoming a lady and marrying into a rich family. Beth must deal with her lingering illness and hopes to remain with her family. Laurie is in love with Jo, but will she return the love of "her boy. The March family will touch your heart and remain in your memory as they learn to step out on their own to transition from little women to beloved wives.
However it's not in print any longer so I paid a bit more to buy a good used condition of the book. I'm in the process of reading it with my daughter and I realize it ends when Meg gets engaged. Which is really only half the book, leaving out Beth's death, Laurie and Amy, etc. Just FYI, since that probably explains why it is no longer in print and I would have purchase a different edition had I known that.
One person found this helpful. This is not the complete book.
This is only the first part. Super annoying since I did not see it anywhere in the description. The book it self is wonder but this copy is a waste of your money. I read this book year ago and have two movie versions. It is a lovely story. In this rereading I was cognizant of its simplicity, the numerous moral life lessens and the focus on family relations in their idealistic forms.
It was nice for a change to enjoy these elements rather than today's focus on dysfunctions and amoral or immoral issues of families and society. All I all it was enjoyable and downright refreshing!!! See all 1, reviews.
