Elementary My Dear Watson

This book is so elementary and doesn’t have any substance. Comparing this to Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women is like comparing a landfill to an orchard. I can’t believe this girl gets her books published much less made into movies. The narrative is equally as bad. They sound like the recorded voices on a computer and are flat and well, just terrible. I have listened to and read for 45 years and I had to force myself to go beyond the first 10 minutes and only did so cause my 15 year old begged me to. Save your money. I’m getting a refund.

Shallow

This was not a modern day re-write of Little Women. I had difficulty finishing the book. It was a selection for my book club and we unamiously agreed not worth the read.

Don’t Bother!

If you are considering this book based on the description that it is a modern day retelling of Little Women, don’t bother. It doesn’t come anywhere close. To compare 4 of the most endearing characters in literary history to these four is an abomination. The gratuitous sex and foul language alone is enough to turn it off but the characters are shallow and there is no point to the story. All I can say is sorry, Louisa Mae. I will be returning this book if for no other reason than to protest the description.

LOVED IT!!!

I’ve never read Little Women, so I have nothing to compare this book to but I absolutely loved it! ALL the narrators were fantastic. I hope Anna Todd continues writing about the Spring Girls!

A modern-day version of Little Women

I loved this retelling of Little Women with a military backgroud. Very realistic and vivid.
