Publisher's Summary

Little Men brilliantly extends the March family saga begun in Louisa May Alcott's classic Little Women. Jo---now married to the good-natured Professor Bhaer and with sons of her own---has become the unflappable matron of an extended family at Plumfield, a school that the Bhaers have founded with Aunt March's legacy. Jo's rambunctious youngsters grow up in an atmosphere full of high spirits and misadventure---a world enlivened by Alcott's unique powers of observation and sympathy.

The reader is just awful.

We listened to this book last year for our homeschool. We wanted to listen to it again and this is a different reader then the version we borrowed from the library last year. My boys just could not deal with the reading.

Narrated well.

As expected, Louisa May Alcott never disappoints. Easy to listen, descriptive, and a great follow up to little Women.

Justine also beautifully narrated this book - giving my imagination the chance to live in a another world. I loved going through it.

Good narration, great story!😇

I love how Mrs. Jo teaches the kids how to be little men! The narration is slightly hard to understand but DON’T slow down the narration speed! Slowing it down takes the emotional feel out of it. -Connor, 10 years old

Wonderful!

This was a wonderful follow-up to Little Women. The story is wonderful, and Justine Eyre does a lovely job narrating.

Not a continuation of Little Women

Something happened to Louisa May Alcott between her masterpiece and this sad sequel. The Jo in this book is just a shadow of the character in the first book. She has no inner thoughts or feelings. And the other reappearing characters are likewise pale reflections. Instead we have one trite anecdote of little boys' precious antics after another, with nothing deeper going on. Really a disappointment. I was all set to binge the entire trilogy but I couldn't even finish this silly nonsense.

an amazing piece of work

I listened to this while mowing the grass, and I never looked forward to a chore as much as I have so far this summer! Truly a wonderful story for a mother and for children, both boys and girls, with hilarious and sobering tales migled throughout

The best of humanity illustrated by Alcott.

the author was obviously a tremendous human being, gifted by God with wisdom and a mind to articulate so beautifully what really matters in this life
