Publisher's Summary

First published in 1869, Little Women is the story of four sisters growing up against the background of the American Civil War. Alcott wrote the book at the urging of the publisher, Thomas Niles, who was seeking a story about girls that would have popular appeal. Although it was commenced essentially as a children's book, it developed into something of a bildungsroman, which touches on more serious issues such as the difficulties faced by single-parent families, the death of a sibling, and fractured relationships.

The book was an immediate success at publication and has become a classic of young adult fiction. It has been adapted numerous times for presentation both on stage and on film.

A Masterful Rendition of a Much Loved Classic

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
The production of this version of "Little Women" is truly masterful and enjoyable. As one of my favorite books and authors I did expect to enjoy the audiobook already, but not to this extent. The only reason I didn't give a 5 start performance rate, is that at the beginning of the second part of this audiobook, there were long pauses after some of the sentences which were a little annoying. If the audiobook continued throughout with this problem I don't think I would have been able to finish listening to it. However after a few minutes, the narration went back to the usual pace and made it very enjoyable again.
Great job!

Little Women

Little Women
: Louisa May Alcott

A beautiful classic that never grows old. Here's to Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy for taking us back in time.


The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Lee Ann Howlett, Amanda Friday, P. J. Morgan, Tiffany Halla Colonna, Becca Maggie, Elizabeth Klett, Andy Harrington did this as if a stage or radio play.

Review

This is the most marvellous recording of a famous classic work. I can't praise it highly enough it is just so good. I read the book at school over 50 years ago and it left a lasting impression on me. This recording is a joy to listen to. Having so many actors reading each part is just beyond wonderful as it brings the story to life in a way that would never be possible with one narrator. I am so glad I was able to listen to it and bring some childhood memories back to life.
