Publisher's Summary

Little Women is the story of a wife and her four daughters living in genteel poverty in the environs of Boston while the father is away as a chaplain in the Union Army during the Civil War.

So natural are the actions and dialogue of the charming Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy, that even today Little Women is readable without a sense of Victorian stiffness.

This heartwarming story is Louisa May Alcott's masterpiece. She was born in German town Pennsylvania in 1832. Before becoming an author, she was a nurse at the Union hospital in Georgetown during the Civil War. She died in 1888.

Lots Duncan says of Little Women: "It speaks directly to the hearts of people of any generation who know what it's like to be part of a caring family."

historical artifact

A very interesting book, if partly read as an historical artifact. It is a must read, but it certainly does not have a contemporary feel whatsoever. More of a sequence of little morality plays, strung together, than a cohesive piece of work in a 20th century sort of way. A necessary companion to "March," also available on Audible.

This particular audiobook has a significant weakness, however. Poor recording and/or narrator exposition. It is very hard to listen to, whatever its other merits. Audible should be tasked to find a higher quality recording by the same narrator, or a different audio version altogether. I would certainly give it another try with a different recording. This recording is hard to recommend.
