I'd consider listening to this again with one of my children or nieces. It was a wholesome story that was incredibly moving.
I felt so bad for Laurie at his low point, but chuckled because I knew that Jo was right.
I enjoyed the girls playing at Pilgrim's Progress, but I was moved the most by Beth's final days.
Four diamonds in the rough: cut, polished and sparkle in love's light.
Read this book at your own peril. I listened to it as an audio book and can attest that you will laugh, cry, celebrate and mourn along with the characters in this book. That might sound wonderful, but when you're walking along in public with earphones in and start cracking up laughing, you'll get the strangest looks from people.
I fell in love with the March daughters in this book and find it a wonderful tale with a strong morality. While I don't have daughters, I'm picking up a copy of this book for my nieces who I hope enjoy the story as much as I did.
As I understand it, the book was broken into two parts - Little Women and Good Wives. Together, they were excellent. In the unabridged version I listened to, the narration by C. M. Hébert was outstanding. By her tone of voice, I could easily distinguish between the dozen or so characters she was portraying.
Overall, I thought this book was really good and I highly recommend it. It's a wholesome tale that will move you and very much might stir you to become a better person.
