    "Love the book, but not the narrator"

    This narrator is the same person who reads the Patricia Cornwell Scarpetta series. She reads those very well, but her voice just wasn't what I wanted to hear when listening to Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy.

    I love the story, it's a classic I read many times growing up. I just should have picked a version with someone else reading.

    "Very Enjoyable"
    If you could sum up Little Women in three words, what would they be?

    Classic... Heart... Life


    What other book might you compare Little Women to and why?

    Little Women is in a league by itself. Why try to compare others?


    What about Kate Reading’s performance did you like?

    Kate's voice is very pleasant and she does an excellent job with all the characters' voices. I never once wondered who was talking. The story really comes alive with a great narrator. Thank you, Kate.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not really. I wanted to take my time with it. And did. It was great to listen to in the car on my work commute. Very calming but engaing.


    Any additional comments?

    I am so glad to have narrator choices with Audible, so that I can sample and pick the one I think will suit me best. Thank you, Audible, for the variety!

    "Excellent"

    I love Little Women. I first watched the film with Winona Ryder before reading the book, but think they complement each other. I love the little moralising stories, with good overcoming evil, and hard work, patience and fortitude winning the day. It is a story I always feel uplifted having listened to (despite some tears at certain points). I found Kate Reading a very good narrator - one of the most important things when in audio format.
