    READER ï TEXT Little Women ´ Little WomenSomeone 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

    READER ï TEXT Little Women ´ Little WomenYes 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 o

    READER ï TEXT Little Women ´ Little WomenI 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
