Little Women is one of the best loved books of all time. Lovely Meg, talented Jo, frail Beth, spoiled Amy: these are hard lessons of poverty and of growing up in New England during the Civil War. Through their dreams, plays, pranks, letters, illnesses, and courtships, women of all ages have become a part of this remarkable family and have felt the deep sadness when Meg leaves the circle of sisters to be married at the end of Part I.
Part II, chronicles Meg's joys and mishaps as a young wife and mother, Jo's struggle to become a writer, Beth's tragedy, and Amy's artistic pursuits and unexpected romance. Based on Louise May Alcott's childhood, this lively portrait of 19th-century family life possesses a lasting vitality that has endeared it to generations of readers and listeners.

Little Women is in a league by itself. Why try to compare others?
Kate's voice is very pleasant and she does an excellent job with all the characters' voices. I never once wondered who was talking. The story really comes alive with a great narrator. Thank you, Kate.
Not really. I wanted to take my time with it. And did. It was great to listen to in the car on my work commute. Very calming but engaing.
I am so glad to have narrator choices with Audible, so that I can sample and pick the one I think will suit me best. Thank you, Audible, for the variety!
First read as a preteen; reread in my fifties.
