Journeying into the past..

What did you love best about Little Women?

I love this book more than some others as this is the book I used to read A LOT during my early teens, even though I didn't understand some things as clearly as I do now. I remember making warm bread and tea to read this book, and both of these are linked in my mind so much that every time I pick up this book I yearn for a cup of warmth that I felt in the past. The narrator has a motherly voice, and you get a warm feeling listening to the book in her voice.

What did you like best about this story?

The best is the links it has got with the history of mankind, how good things used to be in the past, and hope that I can bring up my daughters as well as the ones in this book.

Which character – as performed by Victoria Mcgee – was your favorite?

Her narration was superb overall. The manly voice doesn't suit her when she reads out their dialogues though.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

None at all.

Any additional comments?

I can listen to this book again and again! And I will!

Lovely classic!

Beautiful story! Enjoyed the readers voice. She does a nice job. I have listened to several of her books. Love reading the classics with my two young daughters.

Timeless story, terrible narration

My children think SIRI is the narrator of this book. Will be trying another audio version.

Don't know how she accomplished this

I have no idea how Victoria McGee accomplished this, but she ruined a book that I adored as a child. I think, perhaps, she tried too hard to dramatize the text rather than letting the words pull the story forward. She did not successfully (in my opinion) distinguish the voices of the characters, but she made them all sound insufferably stuffy. They all lacked vibrancy and character.

First Audiobook experience

As this was a new experience for me, it took me a little while to get into the book. The narrator was also a bit monotone. However, after I got used to that voice, it would be weird to hear it in any other. The book kept me captivated, and I really enjoyed it (besides being disappointed with certain parts of the story)!

Timeless Classic for Everyone

One of the sweetest stories every written. Filled with good principles for living a decent and happy life. Uplifting, emotional, and encouraging. A story for everyone, boy/girl, young/old.

Can’t Beat the Classics!!!!

The setting is archaic. The customs are from another era. However, the story has much to inform the alert reader.
