    I hated this bookI can't even begin to go into all the reasons I dislike this novel It's dull and preachy through out most of it aside from Jo who is a truly inspired character But everyone else seems one note most of the chapters come off as morality plays than solid scenes or plots And just when Miss Alcott has something seemingly interesting she breaks it for no other reason than to do somethingWhether its the pairing of Amy and Laurie

    that feeling when you spend the majority of the book desperately longing to be a jo but then end up realising youre actually just a beth also the fact that i still like laurie even after he messes around in france trying to “find himself” says a lot about me than it does about him to be fairand dont even get me started on the new film coming out the casting definitely has me feeling some kind of way im still not over the precision of ti

I hated this bookI can t even begin to go into all the reasons I dislike this novel It s dull and preachy through out most of it aside from Jo who is a truly inspired character But everyone else seems one note most of the chapters come off as morality plays than solid scenes or plots And just when Miss Alcott has something seemingly interesting she breaks it for no other reason than to do somethingWhether its the pairing of Amy and Laurie huh the point made CONSTANTLY that Beth s life isn t useless because she is an angel and showed them that angels do exist and is a total Mary SueReally Cause I m glad she died before I died of boredom the forced pairing of Jo and the Professor Why I mean really Just keep her single there is also the message that pursing art is selfish Jo giving up her writing Laurie gives up his music Amy gives up her sketching It s not a message I expected this book is always lauded as one that has inspired countless girls To do what Because outside of Jo s sipirt I dont really see much to aspire to in this tsory The overall message seems to be that as a good Christian one should sacrifice being an artist being in love with who you want and any hope of independence It s not because I m from the modern era that I dislike this book Or that I m an adult reading it If you look at other works being done in the same time period you will see that there were stories with less moralizing being done including by Miss Alcott herself I was just really disappointed

Generations of readers young and old male and female have fallen in love with the March sisters of Louisa May Alcott’s most popular and enduring novel Little Women Here are talented tomboy and author to be Jo tragically frail Beth beautiful Meg and romantic spoiled Amy united in their devotion to each other and their struggles to survive in New England. Someone I know claimed this no longer has value that she would never recommend it because it s saccharine has a religious agenda and sends a bad message to girls that they should all be little domestic homebodies I say she s wrong on all counts This is high on my reread list along with Pride and Prejudice Jane Eyre and a Tree Grows in Brooklyn you could say that I m pretty familiar with it Let s see there s a heroine who not only writes but is proud of the fact and makes a profit from it in a time that this was somewhat out of the ordinary Reading this and especially knowing later that the main character is for all practical purposes Alcott herself inspired me to write myself and I haven t forgotten the writing lessons even today don t let money cloud your vision write for yourself first take criticism write what you know Still wise even today Also in this book we see the perspective of a family coping with the financial and emotional strain of having a loved one away at war something that is unfortunately all too relatable today There s also extraordinary in those times common in oursa platonic though not uncomplicated friendship between a man and a woman that is sort of a different kind of love story in a way and a powerful one at that We see people getting married but marriage is never portrayed as The Answer to Everything many of the matches involve sacrifice and struggling The girls though good at heart aren t a picture perfect family of saints They re flawed and human The paragon Beth would seem the exception but the message with her is about how even the uietest among us can make an impact on the world not parading her isolated life as an example only her kindness I won t lie Someone dies there s a war and a father s away so yes God is mentioned I think there s a few Pilgrim s Progress references in passing and there s some talk of faith at moments when the characters most need it To contemporary readers this may seem like a lot but heavy handed it is not It was probably somewhat unusual for its time The thought that everyone s relationship and perception of God could greatly vary and that to be true to your religion was entirely non judgmental and meant being kind to other people and trying to make yourself better not other people The thought that each person must be allowed to deal with these feelings in their own time in their own way Wacky stuff I admit it seems like a tough sell to today s kids packaged in somewhat formal sounding language and bearing every indication of being literary broccoli but this book is a classic for a reason It might be a tough sell but I don t think we should give up on trying to think of ways to do it anyway What s inside still counts Don t write it offnote for those of you who liked this review check out my review of the new The Little Women Cookbook by Jenne Bergstrom and Miko Osada
