Little Women

Read
Little Women is the classic coming-of-age tale of four sisters on their journey to adulthood. Though today it’s considered a classic, Little Women almost wasn’t written: Alcott wanted to publish a collection of short stories instead, but her publisher and her father pressed her to write a book that would appeal to a wide audience of young girls.
The first volume was written quickly and published in 1868; it was a huge success, and Alcott composed volume 2 just as quickly and published it in 1869. By her own account, she didn’t enjoy writing them, and both she and her publisher agreed the first few chapters were dull—it almost goes without saying they were pleasantly shocked at the positive reception the volumes received.
By 1927 it had been acknowledged as one of the most widely-read novels of the era and remains widely read today.

I really love it. When I saw the movie I loved it! Then I saw the book at a local shop and I bought it. I have read it more than 4 times now! It may seem boring to those who like less detailed work but believe me it takes you in and it just becomes very interesting! I recommend watching the movie first just because you get the idea of the story better than trying to guess whats happening if your not the best reader.

отличный классический роман. комплексная история, неожиданные повороты, достойные нравоучения, которых многим сегодня не хватает.

как же здорово иногда взяться за книгу, в которой можно по-хорошему утонуть.

I can absolutely say that little women is a book about life, their ups and downs but most importantly family and love. Each one of the characters in this classic novel is unique, with their flaws and qualities. I can recall that in some chapters of this beautiful book I take little lessons that I can apply in my daily life. The formal English used in this book is exquisite. I wish I could go to this time, where things looked so romantic, classic and poetic.
