Little Women, narrated by Sandra Burr

Ms. Burr makes the prose come alive. It is like listening to a radio play. As a listener, you trust in her strong narrative voice and miss it when you put the book down for awhile. The text is a great moral prescription for men and women young and old, but I believe the audio book helped me perceive the moral nuance more clearly. Reading alone, I would sometimes grow distracted by some of the longer philosophical passages, so if that's the case for you, the audio by Sandra Burr is recommended.

Wonderful story.

I now understand why this book is such a classic, the narration is first rate. I don't have any profound words to add to the other reviews, so I will leave it at that. I enjoyed this tittle very much.

Great story BUT disappointing ending

I think the development of the story demonstrates that life is full of surprises. Some of the surprises though were rather disappointing within this story. First, I can't believe Teddy ended up with Amy. The complete opposite of Jo, not to mention her sister. Yet, the story implies that Laurie considered Amy as a replacement for Jo since before they became a couple. It was a little sad. What really was a heart breaking was the fact that Jo ended up marrying Mr. Bhaer, and against what the worda say, the development of the story demonstrates that she ended up with him because of solitude, not because of love. At least that was my interpretation. The story presents Jo as a strong and independent woman. Even past the middle of the story, I was certain that she would commit to her resolution to be single like her aunt. You can imagine my disappointment when she ended up with the professor. To be fair, she did mention that the feeling of loneliness made her think she would have taken Teddy, as he proposed to her during that late stage of her life. What is worst, I believe, is that the professor never really respected her as a writer, and hus comments about her writing made her lose confidence in her writing to the point that she stop doing it until her mom encouraged her to give it one more try.
The detail in the story, and most of the development is great. However, the last chapters seemed rather disappointing, at least in my non professional opinion.

A great listen!

I really enjoyed listening to this recording. The narrator did a fantastic job, she had a different voice for every character. I definitely recommend this to anybody who loves this book.
