    Little Women kindle à Paperback 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 huh? the point made CONSTANTLY that Beth's life isn't useless because she is an angel and showed them that angels do exist and is a total Mary SueReally?

    Little Women kindle à Paperback Little WomenThe book beginsChristmas won't be Christmas without any presents grumbled Jo lying on the rugIt's so dreadful to be poor sighed Meg looking down at her old dressI don't think it's fair for some girls to have plenty of pretty things and other girls nothing at all added little Amy with an injured sniffWe've got Father and Mother and each other said Beth contentedly from her cornerThere's an undercurrent of anger in this book and I think Louisa May Alcott would have gone much further with it if her publisher had allowed it and if it weren't a children's bookLouisa herself was fiercely independent and didn't marry Of course Jo he
