Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I read this when I was a child and loved it. Reading it again at this stage of my life, I still enjoyed it and I can see why it is a classic.
It is the story of the four March sisters and what happens to them as they become young women and adults. It is autobiographical and most of the story elements represent what happened to Louisa and her sisters.
Jo is Louisa and she tells the story of her family and her early writing. Her writing is so vivid that it makes the characters seem to be friends and I found myself identifying with each of them. What happens to Beth seems as poignant today as it was when I read it so many years ago and I found myself crying once again.
