I know Little Women is supposed to be one of those classic stories that everyone must read. Personally, I thought it was quite boring. There wasn’t really a plotl ine in the book. I found the whole book to be very dry, without meaning, and had an extremely hard time finishing it.
There are only two things that saved this book from a 0 star rating. The first was the connection I felt with Jo March. Her troubles, failures, successes, beliefs, and mannerisms are very similar to my own. Because of this I wanted to learn how her story came to a close, how she solved her problems and overcame her difficulties.
The second reason for Little Women receiving any rating at all was the writing style. Everyone I know who has read this story have said it was a difficultto read, but other than that the writing was excellent. The author did a fantastic job showing who each character was. I really felt as though I knew everyone extremely well. Alcottmade me laugh with Jo over her trivial mistakes, pitty Amy’s selfishness and cry over sweet, innocent, little Beth.
I would recommend this book to girl’s who are around 12 or 13 years old and wish to hear a story they can relate to. Also, anyone interested in exploring different writing styles would enjoy reading Little Women.
