A featured School Classic review.
Little Women is the heartwarming story of the March family that has thrilled generations of readers. It is the story of four sisters–Jo, Meg, Amy and Beth– and of the courage, humor and ingenuity they display to survive poverty and the absence of their father during the Civil War.
Little Women is a captivating story that illustrates the power and strength within a family, even when poverty strikes.
There is joyous laughter, overwhelming heartache, tears, and encouragement that will follow the reader long after they finish the book. The characters are charming each in their own way and the readers (mainly female) will be able to relate to at least one of the girls (Meg, Jo, Beth or Amy) and sometimes even all of them at once.
Its a clean read, void of sexual scenes and cussing, and the only thing that could disturb the reader is the intensity of heartache in the midst of the trauma the March family must endure. There are lots of moral lessons that the readers can take away and its a very touching book to readers of all ages.
So, Little Women is an excellent title to read and I give it a full 5 out of 5 stars. Recommending it to readers, mainly girls but guys can certainly still enjoy it, of about 13+.
