    Story
    "Those little women are the loves of my life!"

    I've read Little Women several Times, but never listened to any audiobook of this title. I'm glad I listened to this one! The story really came to life - more extended than the movie already made. I love this story told to the heart and soul by everyone who reads and listen to it.

    It doesn't have an actual plot - in fact it has several plots. It's tales from the author's life (coming of age) and based on her life with her 3 sisters. If you wonder which of the sisters are Louisa May Alcott, it's Jo March - the girl with the temper and ambitions.

    The story is filled with a lot of wisdom and you'll get happy and sad and sniff a bit here and there. It's like watching 'The little House on the Prarie' all over again, and who can get enough of that?

    Narrator Andrea Emmes was wonderful in her narration and made the story come to life like a movie! I especielly loved how she made the baby sister Amy come to life and it takes some skill to create voices to so many females, as in this book. Thank you, Andrea, for this wonderful experience!

    I love Little Women...it is a classy story of a family of girls living with their mother while their father is at war. They struggle to live and what's interesting is the difference in each girl. Love laughter and a deep family connection.
    I liked the narrator...not loved but liked...she did provide nice pacing of the story but her voice just wasn't my favorite..but didn't turn me off from the story

    Classic, try it out for free at Amazon.com..

    I will be reading "Little Men (Little Women Series Book 2)" next.

    "A classic"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a true classic that has lasted through time. It isn’t a book I have read before but I totally enjoyed the read. This is not my normal read but I found it interesting. Everyone should read this once in their lifetime.

    Ms. Emmes did an outstanding job of narration with wonderful character voices that fit the time period. I heard no background noise or any place where the audio volume changed from chapter to chapter. Her voice was clear, crisp and clean. It was easy to know who was talking and what each felt through the emotion given in the narrator’s voice. She really brought the characters to life making you see the pictures of each scene in your mind. I have not listened to anything by this narrator and was thrilled with the audio. I look forward to listening to more from her.

    "A Proper and Delightful Listen"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Ms. Emmes' narration was true to the period. Her voice carried the proper, articulate and delightfulness of each character. It was a pleasure to listen to Little Women. I enjoyed it almost as much as watching it on video. This story is still a classic favorite for me. Thank you Ms. Emmes.

    "Beautiful story"

    I've read Little Women many years ago, but the details had left me. The narrator, Andrea Emmes, brought this book alive for me. She really did a wonderful job capturing the heart of the story.
    Little Women is such a wonderful novel. I love all of the characters, especially Jo. Times have surely changed, but family, love, and being kind to one another are examples we all can always strive to follow.

    I had never read this book before, but always knew it as a classic. It is a good story that spans many years. It would not be easy for me to sit and read, but listening while driving allowed me to enjoy the story. The narrator did a good job as well.

    "Outstanding update on an old classic!"
    Any additional comments?

    Little Women by Louisa May Alcott is one of the best known stories written by an American author that resists the passage of time due to the well defined characters and tight-knit family unity. Based on her own childhood experiences, Alcott captures what it was like to grow up in an impoverished, but very loving family in the 19th century. The story follows the lives of four March sisters as they grow up from being young girls who frequently engage in play acting with the neighbor boy, and into fine young women with infatuations, heartache, and eventually true love.

    Each time I listen to this book (and read it decades ago), I can't help but picture myself as Jo. I am the second sister out of five girls (I have one more sister than Jo), and we grew up very poor in West Virginia. Forty years later, I still remember fighting with my sisters and even arguing over boys. Two of us even ended up dating one of the same boys, albeit years between each other - just like Jo and one of her sisters. Also like the March sisters, no matter what life throws at us, we ultimately stand by and support each other, even though we might not always agree with what the one did or how she handled a situation.

    I listened to the Audible version of Little Women narrated by Andrea Emmes. She did a wonderful job narrating this book, providing distinct and consistent voices for all characters. Her narration really contributed to my satisfaction of the story. I would recommend this audiobook to anyone who enjoys the old classics. I received a copy of this audio in exchange for my honest review.

    Story
    "A lovely adaptation of this beautiful American classic"

    I was transported back to my youth by this wonderful adaptation of a favourite from my youth. The characters are as real and compelling as they were to me when read in print so many years ago; this time however, with the added bonus of the excellent narration of Andrea Emmes the story was brought vividly to life.

    Ms. Emmes does an excellent job with the many characters. I particularly liked her portrayal of the Tom-boyish Jo March and the flighty, rather silly, Amy. For all lovers of this American Classic I highly recommend this audio version.

    I received a free review copy for my honest opinion of it.
