I have read Little women A number of times in my life. This is the second time that I have read it in audio format. I enjoyed the narrator of this book very much she was able to draw me in to the story by the timbre and tone of her voice. I will definitely be looking for more books that she narrates This book was given to me at no cost from the author narrator or publisher for an honest review
I love books...I love storytelling. Audiobooks allow me to enjoy a great story while still being able to do my daily routine. Thanks Audible
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.

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.

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.

Sisters, Love, Hardship
I love Jo. I love her independence and spirit
I though she did reasonably well with the voices and inflections. there were just a few short parts that could have been a little bit more dramatic (we are talking 4 teenage girls), but over all it was good.
There are already many movies made from this book, but the tag line would have to be the same as the title Little Women
