Journey Through The Classics Update!

Little Women
By: Louisa May Alcott

This was a re-read for me. I had read it many, many years ago so I didn't remember a lot of it beyond liking it. So, I included it on my classics to read list. Turns out, I had better success with it last time than I did this time.

The story is of 4 sisters who live with their Mother and wait for their Father to return from fighting in the war. I loved how close knit the girls were and how unselfish they were. Throughout the reading of this book I kept thinking how fun it would be to hang out with them. These sisters came into creation long before TV ever did, and the ways they found of amusing themselves were great to read about.

Beyond that I got bored with the book. The girls each have little tales in the book, but not much kept me glued. It's a book I can imagine people reading for the comfort factor.

Nice review! I intend to read this book in the near future, as it's on my classics list. It's good at it's a sort of comfort book, nothing too heavy. I like that.

I hope you like it! When I read it the first time, years ago, I liked it. The sisters are a family you enjoy visiting. I don't know what happened the second time around. I think maybe I was wanting to read something different. I don't know. I look forward to reading your thoughts when you read it.
