Book Review: Little Women by Louisa May Alcott - Reviewed by (28 Nov 2011)

Little Women, a classic for every day that will change your life from the very first page and alter it magnificently after the last page of this terrific book is closed. Then you just have to get the second book in the series.

I adored Little Women and I have a feeling that everyone who reads it will be able to connect with one of the characters, I connected with Jo and felt that she was a marvalous friend by the time I had closed the book, and am now, as I write this, feeling awfully shocked that I haven't continued with the series. I must. Because it deserves it; it is sad, joyful and a wonderful read!


Author Biography - Louisa May Alcott

Louisa May Alcott (29 November 1832 - 6 March 1888) was born in Germantown, Pennsylvania. When she was almost two years old, Louisa's family moved to Massachusetts, the state where she lived for much of her life. The family moved many times over the years, usually back and forth between Boston and Concord (Mass.). Some notable places Louisa lived were 'Fruitlands' in Harvard, Massachusetts; 'Hillside' in Concord; and 'Orchard House,' also in Concord. 'Fruitlands' was the site of her father's attempt at Utopian living, which she wrote about in Transcendental Wild Oats, thirty years later in 1873. Louisa's childhood at 'Hillside' (later renamed 'Wayside' by Nathaniel Hawthorne, when he lived there) served as the basis for the action in her most popular novel, Little Women, which she wrote as an adult living in 'Orchard House.' Interestingly, these latter two houses were located next door to each other, with a walking path through the woods between. They are both still standing and open for tours in Concord. Louisa May Alcott's father, Amos Bronson Alcott, was an important - though controversial - man in his times and in his community. He is perhaps best known for being a philosopher and an education reformer, but he was also a leader in the Transcendentalist movement as well as a teacher, school superintendent, and an author. He established both the Temple School, in Bosto
