    Little Women itself “has been read as a romance or as a quest, or both. It has been read as a family drama that validates virtue over wealth.” Little Women has been read “as a means of escaping that life by women who knew its gender constraints only too well.” Alcott “combines many conventions of the sentimental novel with crucial ingredients of Romantic children's fiction, creating a new form of which Little Women is a unique model.”

    This novel is really something extraordinary. Allingham's characterization is faultless and her portrayal of a sociopathic serial killer is chilling in its intimate portrayal of him. We don't see very much of Campion in this book, but her other characters steal the show. There is the truly wonderful Polly and Annabelle and young Richard are wonderful, but her depiction of Gerry is remarkable. This audiobook is a gripping read and an Allingham tour de force.

    This audiobook has nothing to do with killing yourself; it's about the reasons why you wouldn't. Why Don't You Kill Yourself is the title because most of us would never consider killing ourselves. The thought may have crossed our mind at some extremely difficult point in our life, but we didn't. We didn't do it then, and we wouldn't do it now. One of the reasons is because we have some things we would like to accomplish or create in this life. Even though every one of us has a reason, conscious or subconscious, we wouldn't consider killing ourselves.

    Herodotus wrote the first history book in the world. That is why he is sometimes called the "Father of History". He lived about 2500 years ago in the fifth century BC. He was born at a place called Halicarnassus in Asia Minor. The modern names for these places are Bodrum in Turkey. Herodotus was a keen traveler who went all over the ancient world and was interested in everything he saw and heard.

But the consummate artistry of Jane Austen (1775 -1817) transformed this effervescent tale of rural romance into a witty, shrewdly observed satire of English country life that is now regarded as one of the principal treasures of the English language.
