Publisher's Summary

Jo March, the irrepressible tomboy in Little Women, has grown up and married her professor to become Jo Bhaer. Together the Bhaers have established Plumfield - a warm-hearted, informal school where lessons are taught with a dose of laughter. When Nat, a young orphan joins the happy household at Plumfield, he can’t believe his good fortune. Each day is filled with studying and fun - the boys even enjoy Saturday-night pillow fights. But when Nat gets caught stretching the truth, he discovers there is more to learn in his new home than games and schoolwork.

Filled with real-life characters and situations, Louisa M. Alcott’s spirited classic has touched the hearts and minds of young people from generation to generation. Barbara Caruso’s dramatic narration transports young adults to the late 1800s when life was simpler but was still packed with plenty of adventures.

Love this book

This has been one of my favorite books since I was a child. I used to listen to it over and over again. It’s definitely a classic, it’s not necessarily fast paced or action packed. It’s more about enjoying a simple, pure story about good and kind people. there aren’t too many of those around these days.

Captivating performance

Barbara Caruso's warm, maternal voice brings this narrative of post-Civil War era America to life, telling the adventures and mishaps of the boys at Plumfield when Jo March is all grown up and managing a family of her own.

Very Well Narrated

I enjoyed the narration on this title a little better than Little Women. I don't know if the narrator improved or I'm just familiar with her now.

Little Men is another book I have enjoyed for as long as I can remember. In some ways I like it better than Little Women.

Great, moral story for the young audience

I enjoyed Little Women, so I continued with Little Men. Little Men was a bit more casual and aimed at a younger audience than Little Women, but I still enjoyed it. Barbara Caruso (narrator) did a "first rate" job (to quote the story) narrating.

Little Boys and Baby Voices

Any additional comments?

Lovely book, but it is nothing like Little Women. It was written for children and their enjoyment. It is mostly about how children play, get into trouble and quickly find their way out it. The 12 year old Daisy is read like she is a 2 year old and that annoyed me a bit. I got about 6 hours into it and quit.

Top Notch Narration

If you've never read this classic book, definitely worth reading. A celebration of boys and how to raise little men. Morality, compassion, respect for self and others, self- reliance, work and joy are among the many life lessons painted throughout the story.

Additionally the narrator's performance is stellar; helping the listener along by creating different voices for each character, cadence and enunciation are great. Worth a listen!

I used this performance in conjunction with visual reading for my 13 year old son as part of his required reading for a class. We also enjoyed listening as we played games.

An eccentric read

I love it. As you'd expect, very old fashioned. Old fashioned gender roles very very indoctrinated throughout. Still... it's one of my old favourites from childhood that gives me peace and calm. One of my ultimate winter books.
