eBook ´ Little Women ì Louisa May Alcott

Little Women is one of the best loved books of all time Lovely Meg talented Jo frail Beth spoiled Amy these are hard lessons of poverty and of growing up in New England during the Civil War Through their dreams plays pranks letters illnesses and courtships women Yes yes I AM a grown ass man reading this but I'm not even remotely ashamed What I tried to do here was dispel the extra melodrama embrace the cut outs fat trimmed out of the Winona Ryder film I was on the hunt for all the new ha stuff that the regular person well informed of the plot involving four young girls growing up or in the case of Beth not never even knew existed But it seems that the film did a great job not adding many scenes than direly needed like the Byrne Ryder night at the opera scene it explains why she doesn't choose Laurie after all nor taking indispensable scenes from the century a half old novel to the cutting room floor Alas there's a good reason why Entertainment Weekly once decreed that the film was a great comfort to all post 911 victims The story has no great battles to speak of no violence no terrible disasters The minutiae is symbolic of fragile domestic existences important very fun to read about this coming from a Bridget and Carrie Bradshaw fan of course Little Women is at its core all about Old School American values such as temperance forgiveness hard work It has astute lessons aplenty to rival even old Aesopus himself Laurie and Amy have the best lines there are plenty of groans amidst cute vignettes and harsh but necessary life lessons for Americans and non alike This is relevant today so than On the Road or other so called uintessential American classics that's a genuine plus This one stands as outstanding soap opera theatrics woven intelligently with American history herself Good stuff like a wise mentor of American Lit would say Also mega appropriate for the season

Check out my latest BooktTube Video all about the fabulous and not so fabulous Olde Boies The Written Review “Don't try to make me grow up before my time” The March sisters may be radically different but they all have one thing in common love Their love for their mother and father their love for adventure and for each other unites them in this troubled timeThe Civil War is afoot and all the sisters can do is think about their father away and in battle Their mother tries to distract them but often she can barely distract herself Jo a radical tomboy and aspiring author rallies her family with her amusing plays and scribbles I like good strong words that mean something Meg the beautiful sister often puts her family first and holds them together when her mother cannot You don’t need scores of suitors You need only one if he’s the right one Amy the youngest was spoiled as a child and oh my it shows But even she can rally when life looks darkest I'd rather take coffee than compliments just now Beth sweet and good natured valiantly cheers on her sisters but her frail health often keeps her at the sidelines There are many Beths in the world shy and uiet sitting in corners till needed and living for others so cheerfully that no one sees the sacrifices till the little cricket on the hearth stops chirping The sisters must face hardships their New England home They must face things that they never would have thought possibleBut even in the darkest of times they will have each other And that is most important of all Watch and pray dear never get tired of trying and never think it is impossible to conuer your fault This is probably my fifth or sixth time through and yes I am totally going to read it again There's just something about this book that's absolutely gorgeous and timelessI love the sisters and their relationships with each other I see so much of myself and my cousins with their day to day interactionsJo the darling is the perfect mix of strength and fear Watching her grow from a brash girl to confident young woman just makes my heart happy You are the gull Jo strong and wild fond of the storm and the wind flying far out to sea and happy all alone And the message of the book Ahh My heart So fullIt often feels like the messages from books in the mid 1800s are saccharine sweet or so heavy handed with their themes that they're ridiculous Just look at the later Anne of Green Gables if you'd like an exampleBut this one had just the right mixture of loving family religion life lessons It was beautifully balanced Be worthy love and love will come That being said I do absolutely hate that view spoiler Beth has to die hide spoiler
