Sophia's Corner- Book Review of Little Women


Little Women, Louisa May Alcott




This is the story about 4 sisters. Their names are Meg, the oldest, Jo, Beth and Amy the littlest. Their father was at war and the girls lived with their mother. Meg gets married, Jo is a writer, Beth is very kind but gets very sick and Amy grows up and goes lives in Europe with her aunt. Many sad things happen about sickness and happiness. But there's good happy parts too.

What I liked best: I liked their Christmas and when they gave breakfast to the poor and how they helped eachother.


What I didn’t like so much: There is a very sad part in this story that made me cry about one of the sisters.
I liked this book but it’s not one of my favourites even though it has pretty photos.

I give this book 3 castle only because it was good but it wasn't one of my favourites.

It's a wonderful story.

That's one of my favorite parts too.

This was the first 'grown up' book I ever received. It made me want to have sisters just like the March family. I only have brothers. I wanted to be just like Jo!

I hope you read more classics like this one. I'm reading The Secret Garden to my daughter now.

Thank you for your review! :) I never read this one, even though I was given a very pretty hardcover one for Christmas one year. One of these days I'll pick it up!

Classics are fun..I LOVED the Secret Garden!

I read it, and then devoured all the sequels too, after I had my appendix out as a kid and was stuck indoors during summer.

I can't believe I've never read this book! Thanks Sophia for your review! I may just have to read it, even though it's sad.

Sophia, I am so glad to see you are still writing reviews - great ones too. I loved Little Women, and it made me cry too. My favourite is Jo.
