*Book Review- Little Women by Louisa May Alcott*

Book Description-

The timeless tale of four sisters – Meg, Jo, Amy and Beth – experiencing both hardship and adventure in Civil War New England. Though the March family may be poor, their lives are rich with colour, as they play games, put on wild theatricals, make new friends, argue, grapple with their vices, learn from their mistakes, nurse each other through sickness and disappointments, and get into all sorts of trouble. In this simple, enthralling tale, Louisa May Alcott created four of American literature’s most beloved “little women”. (From Amazon)

Book Review-

As soon as I saw the trailer for Gretas adaptation of this book I had to read it before going to watch at the cinema! (Always read the book before the films) but found out this book is part one!!

What a little delight the book was! I really enjoyed immersing myself in those times and reading up on the sisters adventures through life and growing up- their trials throughout the year. I liked each sisters views on the ups and downs and what each of their priorities were. All sisters had a unique talent and it was interesting to find out that the book is a semi autobiography of her and her three sisters made it even better.

Nice read for all ages – a quick light read to get you into the mood for more of a Jane Austin novel. Also I think we all have abit of a Jo (or Meg?) in us and can’t actually pick a favourite character this time as they were all good! Now to read part two…….

8/10
