Classic!

I listened to this book on audio. I was a little put off initially because it was so preachy. Once I put myself in the time frame that the book was written I let down my guard and found it absolutely charming. There are so many life lessons throughout in the plot and I became completely absorbed in each character. My favorite was Jo because I could relate to her clumsiness and being social awkward, but there was something I could identify with in each character as well as something to admire. Of course this is true with every individual, but the author demonstrated it in such a lovely way. Now I need to buy the book because it would be easy to pick it up and just enjoy little senarios when I am in the mood.

I do not recommend listening to it in public towards the end of the book. I made a right fool of myself out gardening in my front yard, crying at the loss of a favorite character. You have been warned.

Great book, flat reading

Alcott's Little Women is a great book. I wasn't enamored of the reader, who sounded smug and made the characters flat. I had a hard time hearing the differences in the many characters, especially Teddy.
