The day Louisiana teenager Rory Deveaux arrives in London marks a memorable occasion. For Rory, it'sRead Review
In picturesque nineteenth-century New England, tomboyish Jo, beautiful Meg, fragile Beth, and romantic Amy come of age while their father is off to war.
One of my favourite classics.
A frankly just great book.
The story combines the different personalities of four young sisters and portrays many morals through the mistakes of each characters. Despite it being set in an earlier time the interactions and events of little women, are still relatable. Little women is by far my favourite classical book, and still brings a tear to my ear each time I read it.
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
The beautiful Meg, tomboy Jo, shy Beth and royal Amy shares their life stories of joy, tragedies and love while their father went off to war and after.
This lovely classic has a moral for each chapter but sews all the chapters into one story. I recommend this to young readers who will find out that the past is pretty similar to now.
This book follows the lives of four sisters, determined to be good throughout life. It is a fantastic book, and I loved every single part of it.
In the book, the girls start on their own "Journey" through life, like pilgrims, to be as good and helpful as possible. The idea is brilliant, and even though they endure many hardships along the way, they succeed to the best of their abilities. I cried early cured when Beth died, because I loved her so much!
I've heard complaints that this book is annoying because it has morals for every chapter, but personally, I don't see why that's a bad thing. Isn't it nice to be able to take lessons from stories, to prevent yourself from committing the same mistakes that the characters did? Others say this book is full of Mary-Sue type characters who are so unrealistic, but I've come to realise that of all ficional characters, the one I relate to the most is Jo. In fact, with three sisters in my family, I can't help but gape in shock when I read a scene between the girls, realising it is mirror to the interactions between my sisters and I. Clearly, I adored this book, it's beautiful and sweet, and a lovely read particularly for young girls, I think. Don't let the thought of it being a classic put you off - you'd be surprised at how things from the past are still applicable today.
