Wow

- Absolute favorite5 star

I loved reading this book growing up and still do to this day. An absolute classic novel, beautifully written, with characters that will forever hold a special place in my heart.

- Wholesome and Heartwarming5 star

This book doesn’t fail to lift your spirits and make you feel like you’re part of the March family yourself. It’s such a great book for when you want to relax and remember to cherish small moments in life.

- Little Woman4 star

Such a classic. So detailed and I absolutely love the dialogue, and the way the characters are set up. I do wish though that the book was a little shorter. I mean come on, 1,400 pages? Crazy. My oldest daughters have all read it, but my two youngest ones have not. I can’t wait for them to dig into this masterpiece.

- Made me wayyyy to emotional5 star

I’m obsessed with this book, so much that I woke up at two am to continue reading. I laughed so hard at some parts and cried my way through part two. Part two was very sad in my opinion... but I won’t spoil it. I personally feel that both Laurie and jo deserved better...their relationship made me laugh and cry the most. The reason I gave it four stars was that I feel like part two had too much confusion and hurt feelings, I cried my eyes out even more than the characters did, proving that I was way too attached to it. But it’s a good book.

I read the book little women by Louisa May Alcott and it touched every corner of my heart I loved it so so much. -Emmy Turek (11)

- My Little Women5 star

This book was great! At first it was slow and I didn’t really like it but after I got into it, I found it amazing! As I read Little Women I found myself in all the characters. Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy are all very relatable. I found struggle, happiness, and romance in Little Women. All those things made this an awesome book. I suggest you read it. You might think, it’s a classic, classics aren’t good, they’re slow and boring, they really aren’t. I suggest you read this book. It might get you hooked on classics like it did for me.

- 😡😡😡3 star

I’m on pg 220 and I’m already bored. I have 2370 pg in this book and I already hate it, take no affence author but, THIS IS A BORING BOOK!!!!!! It’s only about girls talking and is so boring.

- A Long Overdue Read5 star

I loved this family and all they brought to one another and us the readers.

- Not the best edition3 star

Lots of spelling errors in this version.

- Heartwarming5 star

This book gives you a view of the love and devotion and patience it takes to have a good, faithful life.

- Hi5 star

Hi I like this book

- Little Women5 star

My new favorite book!! Every woman and man, little or big needs to read it!

- Worst book around1 star

If you don't have to read this book, then I do not recommend it. Thanks for your time.

- This is fantastic!5 star

I love this book! It's a classic that everyone should read! I wish they had us read this in my school!

- So Happy I Took the Time5 star

I found this to be so much more enjoyable than I was expecting. I really liked it and got all caught up in the goings on of this family. I don't know how I missed reading it when I was growing up. I think the storyline was entertaining while also having several morals. After reading, I was left with a good feeling.

- So good, every women should read it.5 star

I laughed and cried way too much. Beautifully written, and I can't help but wish I was part of the March family. But feel as if I lived through every part of the story with them.

- Little Women4 star

I did so enjoy this delightful book. Never read it in my youth. So glad that I got too. Very winning.

- Little Women5 star

So very wonderful !! This is what our young people are missing - perfect read for family story night. Only wish I'd have read it so long ago- would have thought me a great deal of basic relational boundaries as well as understanding of the human spirit - would have saved my dear ones so much pain.

- Little Women5 star

A delightful book. I had read it as a child but that was so many, many years ago it was like new. At first it seemed rather slow and boring, and so old fashioned and I wondered why I had loved it when I was young.....and then I got into it. I loved it. And I think as an older adult I saw many things I overlooked as a child. More depth to it. The old classics are well worth reading again!!

- By uuibvrfiujbgbijbiovbohivgrboiugbugrnihrgboiu1 star

Hate it so bad

- Okay... Good for romance "happy-end" people4 star

I was going to give it 3.5 but I rounded because there is no such option and 3 is to harsh... I mean it is a good book, well written, but I have a feeling that it is just a classic because it was written 200 years ago. Just a regular romance book, nothing special.The language is really good, and I enjoyed reading it.

- Incredible5 star

This is one of my absolute favourite books of all time! It is a must-read that people across the world can relate to.

- Little women2 star

ITS WAY TOO LONG there were way too many pages and its only about women why is it so long

- Very interesting book.5 star

Personally, being at a very young age, even I can enjoy this book even while surrounded by all of the games and other fun, brain-demolishing items. This is a book for everybody. Though it may be long, it never loses a reader's attention. In my opinion, this is one of the best books to read, since it is all-around. At first, there is adventure and happiness. Then there is sadness and death. Finally, romance and more joy come into play. To all of the illiterate people who have no idea how great this novel is: You either do not like books at all, or you are a desolate person. I suggest this book to anyone who has patience to see its outcome.

- Favorite book5 star

Everyone should have this book on their phone

- Wow😍📕5 star

I will never be so proud and happy of anything as this beautiful book that describes the life of The March family. From dear old Mr. March to little dear Amy. I've read this book five times already and never seem to become tired of it😍💙📕

- Drags on and on and on and on.1 star

Excitement: A word Louisa May Alcott did’t know the meaning of.

- Love this book!!!5 star

At first I really didn't get it, but as the story went on it got better. All of the characters are very in depth and intuitive, and the story is extremely through.

- Very good one of my favs now5 star

I love this book all of the mysteries and exit meant I love it

- Bear5 star

I love this book it is one of my favorites. Classic!😃

- Little Women5 star

If I could grow to be half the woman as any of the Marches, I'd be happy with that. Wonderful lessons on life, love, and being a woman, that I believe this world could sorely use.

- Great book!5 star

I love this book! It was so interesting and addictive I read the whole book in a week or two. My favorite character is Jo. This book has two parts. Part one was fun to read. Four girls living happily together everyday. Part two had a different air to it. More melancholy, mature, more "lovering" as the author calls it. But I loved it just as much as the first. It made me cry when Beth... well, I will let you read the book. I highly recommend it!

- Little Women's5 star

This book was very touching, I definitely recommend reading it.

- Little women1 star

This book was horrible never read it. It is the worst book ever. I would rather read a documentary than this book. Please do not read it is a waste of time

- I love it5 star

I loved this book it's full of action and mystery I really recommend it!!!

- Little women5 star

I think this book was fantastic ! The author described everything so well, it feels like you are in the story while it's going on! This author is one of my favorite author ever, but this book is my favorite . It teaches a great lesson and this book might even be a good influence on kids! I think you will love this book! I can't wait to read the others

- Re-read, re-read and then...5 star

It is impossible to count how many times I have read this book over five decades. I am deeply moved every single time. There is purity in the story of Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy. While a tad thick with sentiment and roses, the characters are true to the story and the lessons offered are as gentle as Beth’s touch, as deft as Marmee’s, wise as Jo’s and rich with dignity and purpose. There are a few three-hankie moments but, more importantly, there are moments when one is part of an intimate understanding between friends and lovers, participant in life’s most common journeys and left feeling as if goodness will be enough. When you are done, find Little Men and Jo’s Boys.

- Little women5 star

I loved it it is my most favorite book and the best I've read

This book is great but it's sad when Beth dies. I cried. Trying to get my BFF to read this book. She is 35 and so I am cause we were friends since we were 6 so that's 29 years of friendship. Sorta like the little women minus the fact we aren't sisters. U must read Rick Riordan.

The book is an all time Classic! It's filled with drama that makes you want to either laugh or cry. I did however think the book dragged on at times but above all it was a good book!

- Little Woman5 star

An old book I read many years ago, I really enjoyed it a second time around

- Little Women5 star

Little women is a sad yet beautiful story about 4 young girls try to find there purpose in life. There are some sad times and lots of specials times along the way. The last thing I have to say is that this story really touch's your heart!

- Little Women3 star

A charming book full of character and quite insightful years later into people’s foibles. You will fall in love with the March sisters and long for more adventures by them.

- Warm book5 star

A place to find warmth and power when life is hard

- Hi4 star

Good

- Oh my!4 star

This book is absolutely marvelous! It is emotional, sad, joyful and all sorts. The only negative (do excuse my pessimistic side!) is that if Laurie really did love Jo, why would he marry Amy? And also I see no good in Professor Braer. My favorite character is Beth. The horror and shock I had when she died! Ph darling Beth, such a shame! Laurie deserves Jo. I don’t know why they couldn’t marry each other. To me, Jo did love Laurie.

- Little Women5 star

Having read this beautifully written book countless times, it never fails to make me feel every emotion that all the characters are feeling. Only a superb writer can make you fall into a book so completely you feel as though you are part of it.

- Lovely Women5 star

Such a beautiful story! Although sad at times, it truly is a guide for any woman Loved it :)

- Never would I have chosen4 star

As the title suggests I would have never chosen this book to read however I did due to a recommendation from a friend. A chapter or two in and you can't help but wonder what happens to the characters. There are parts to this book which can easily be skipped over and the reader will still not miss anything of the storyline, which was the only downside I found other than it getting overly descriptive at times. I thoroughly enjoyed this heart warming story.

All I can say is if you are a Christian read Louisa May Alcott's books every day.

- A worthwhile read!4 star

An uplifting read, supports the divinity and importance of family life with humor and elegance. I feel every woman should read this book and reflect on the type of impact she wants to leave upon the world.

- Love It!5 star

The first time I read this book was in the 1st grade when I stumbled on a copy on my parent's bookshelf. Since then I have read and reread this book and each time I fall in love with it more and more. This book describes the lives of women in such a relatable way and is beautifully written.

- little women5 star

this is one of the best books I have ever read even though it is a long one or is very good. at the end it is very touching with the girls talking to one another. And when jo refused Laurie I thought that he was gonna die. Then with Amy in France and all. He just fell in love but didnt realize it. And the part with Jo and Mr.Baher it was also touching and chapter 46 where Jo cried because he was leaving and he said that it was good and he proposed to her in the rain. And then when aunt march died and left plumfield to Jo that was nice. this book deserves all five stars

- One of the Best Books of All Time5 star

I read this book for the first time in second grade, seen the movie countless times and have reread the book some years later. This book demonstrates love, loss, romance, and hope and it is a book that I will cherish for eternity. It will always have a place on a bookshelf in my home.

- Great book (:5 star

My new favorite book. Alcott gives vivid descriptions of characters and their bonds which makes Little Women seem more relatable, even though it was written in the 1800s. Little Women delved into the personal world of four sisters and their family and friends, allowing Alcott to present a story from different points of view and express every emotion, making this book even better. It's long, but definitely worth the read!

- Little Women5 star

An amazing book, I didn't know that a married life existed for the sisters. I've only read the abridged versions.

- Inspiration5 star

This absolutely timeless book has been so enjoyable and yet, fairly discreetly, taught me so much about my own life. I am sure it will do the same for any others who read it willingly and openly.

- Little Women5 star

In the year 1951 as a young lad of ten years, I recall my 21 year old sister saying she was reading Little Women. Whether in 1951 or 2013, young boys are not generally interested in reading novels, they have other pursuits and interests; mine were not unique. I am now 71 years of age and wish I had read this wonderful story at an earlier age as did my beloved sister. She incorporated the simple, wise approach to life and marriage as put forth by the author; had a few days short of fifty years marital bliss, and a son as princely as his father. I suspect Little Women touches the unknown, indescribable humanity in all of us. The author accurately describes the feelings I have for my wife much better than I could hope.

- Great book!4 star

Love this story! I can read it again & again!!

- Awesome5 star

This THE best book ever, and I am a kid and think so! I highly recommend this to all readers

- Little Women5 star

Life changing, I encourage all girls to read it what ever age. It's a great book filled with words of luxury. it always encourages me to do my best, my favorite character is Jo. The story is so amazing, I lived it. I felt as if I was in it. It's amazing. I'm only in third grade and I enjoyed it so much. I want to read it again though only more than half way done, I want it to never end. I feel as if I could read it till the end of the world. Though in a very sad chapter Beth has scarlet fever and their father who was in the army was gravely ill. Though I still say it's the best book in the world.

- Wonderfull!5 star

Such a old and good story, everyone should read it at least once :)

- It's beautiful!5 star

This is a beautifully written book. I advise everyone to get this book I love that it is about sweet,caring, Christian women.EVERYONE BUY this Book!

Best book ever! read it or you haven't lived!!it's funny, sad and so amazingly written.I'm just sad that beth died.But everything else worked out so read it.

- "Little Women" must read for all young people5 star

I read it the first time as a Pre-teen nearly 50 years ago and can still remember the enchantment. Through the years, I have occasionally revisited Alcott's stories and find them still as powerful. In them, healthy attitudes about everyday life resonate within captivating storylines and characters. I can't wait to introduce "Little Women" to my granddaughter in a few more years.

- Timeless5 star

Little Women is a wonderful timeless story.
