Someone 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 I haven't forgotten the writing lessons even today don't let money cloud your vision write for yourself first take criticism write what you know Still wise even today Also in this book we see the perspective of a family coping with the financial and emotional strain of having a loved one away at war something that is unfortunately all too relatable today There's also extraordinary in those times common in oursa platonic though not uncomplicated friendship between a man and a woman that is sort of a different kind of love story in a way and a powerful one at that We see people getting married but marriage is never portrayed as The Answer to Everything many of the matches involve sacrifice and struggling The girls though good at heart aren't a picture perfect family of saints They're flawed and human The paragon Beth would seem the exception but the message with her is about how even the uietest among us can make an impact on the world not parading her isolated life as an example only her kindness I won't lie Someone dies there's a war and a father's away so yes God is mentioned I think there's a few Pilgrim's Progress references in passing and there's some talk of faith at moments when the characters most need it To contemporary readers this may seem like a lot but heavy handed it is not It was probably somewhat unusual for its time The thought that everyone's relationship and perception of God could greatly vary and that to be true to your religion was entirely non judgmental and meant being kind to other people and trying to make yourself better not other people? The thought that each person must be allowed to deal with these feelings in their own time in their own way? Wacky stuff I admit it seems like a tough sell to today's kids packaged in somewhat formal sounding language and bearing every indication of being literary broccoli but this book is a classic for a reason It might be a tough sell but I don't think we should give up on trying to think of ways to do it anyway What's inside still counts Don't write it offnote for those of you who liked this review check out my review of the new The Little Women Cookbook by Jenne Bergstrom and Miko Osada Yes 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 old novel to the cutting room floor Alas there's a good reason why Entertainment Weekly once decreed that the film was a great comfort to all post 911 victims The story has no great battles to speak of no violence no terrible disasters The minutiae is symbolic of fragile domestic existences important very fun to read about this coming from a Bridget and Carrie Bradshaw fan of course Little Women is at its core all about Old School American values such as temperance forgiveness hard work It has astute lessons aplenty to rival even old Aesopus himself Laurie and Amy have the best lines there are plenty of groans amidst cute vignettes and harsh but necessary life lessons for Americans and non alike This is relevant today so than On the Road or other so called uintessential American classics that's a genuine plus This one stands as outstanding soap opera theatrics woven intelligently with American history herself Good stuff like a wise mentor of American Lit would say Also mega appropriate for the season we stanhttpsyoutubeKREaj07OEfU Old books get a bad rapbut do they deserve it? Check out my latest BooktTube Video all about the fabulous and not so fabulous Olde Boies The Written Review “Don't try to make me grow up before my time” The March sisters may be radically different but they all have one thing in common love Their love for their mother and father their love for adventure and for each other unites them in this troubled timeThe Civil War is afoot and all the sisters can do is think about their father away and in battle Their mother tries to distract them but often she can barely distract herself Jo a radical tomboy and aspiring author rallies her family with her amusing plays and scribbles I like good strong words that mean something Meg the beautiful sister often puts her family first and holds them together when her mother cannot You don’t need scores of suitors You need only one if he’s the right one Amy the youngest was spoiled as a child and oh my it shows But even she can rally when life looks darkest I'd rather take coffee than compliments just now Beth sweet and good natured valiantly cheers on her sisters but her frail health often keeps her at the sidelines There are many Beths in the world shy and uiet sitting in corners till needed and living for others so cheerfully that no one sees the sacrifices till the little cricket on the hearth stops chirping The sisters must face hardships their New England home They must face things that they never would have thought possibleBut even in the darkest of times they will have each other And that is most important of all Watch and pray dear never get tired of trying and never think it is impossible to conuer your fault This is probably my fifth or sixth time through and yes I am totally going to read it again There's just something about this book that's absolutely gorgeous and timelessI love the sisters and their relationships with each other I see so much of myself and my cousins with their day to day interactionsJo the darling is the perfect mix of strength and fear Watching her grow from a brash girl to confident young woman just makes my heart happy You are the gull Jo strong and wild fond of the storm and the wind flying far out to sea and happy all alone And the message of the book Ahh My heart So fullIt often feels like the messages from books in the mid 1800s are saccharine sweet or so heavy handed with their themes that they're ridiculous Just look at the later Anne of Green Gables if you'd like an exampleBut this one had just the right mixture of loving family religion life lessons It was beautifully balanced Be worthy love and love will come That being said I do absolutely hate that view spoiler Beth has to die hide spoiler A new movie is coming out December 25thI've never read it so I might have to do a readalong for it that month This book means SISTERHOOD FAMILY HAPPINESSTOGETHERNESS THANKFULNESS GENUINENESSSOLIDARITYBELIEFS RESPECTUNCONDITIONAL LOVEHONESTYKINDNESSThis is magical book when I get into my hands for the first time I was only eleven and for decades I kept on getting it into my hands reread it several times and same words resonated different for me awoke different feelings made me look at the characters’ flaws and differences at brand new perspectiveEven though I know the ending I laughed I cried I sighed I smiled I jumped I felt peaceful and at the end I LOVED IT TRULY DEEPLY so MUCH Christmas is coming You think there won’t be Christmas without presents and I think there won’t be any meaningful celebration without doing my yearly reading of this book and reconnecting with Holly March Sisterhood Joe tomboy book worn hot tempered writer definitely closer to my character Meg Romantic sweet natured peace maker older sister Beth sweet shy cute friendly fallen angel musical prodigy and Amy spoiled childish artistic elegant refined youngest one I LOVE YOU BOTH It is why this book is always my all time favorite one Time to reconnect with the sisters and feeling the best holiday spirit I 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? Cause I'm glad she died before I died of boredom the forced pairing of Jo and the Professor Why? I mean really Just keep her single there is also the message that pursing art is selfish Jo giving up her writing Laurie gives up his music Amy gives up her sketching It's not a message I expected this book is always lauded as one that has inspired countless girls To do what? Because outside of Jo's sipirt I dont really see much to aspire to in this tsory? The overall message seems to be that as a good Christian one should sacrifice being an artist being in love with who you want and any hope of independence It's not because I'm from the modern era that I dislike this book Or that I'm an adult reading it If you look at other works being done in the same time period you will see that there were stories with less moralizing being done including by Miss Alcott herself I was just really disappointed I’M IN LOVE I’M IN LOVE AND I DON’T CARE WHO KNOWS ITWhen I was a child my mother used to drag me to antiue stores all the time There is nothing boring to a kid than an antiue store It smelled like dust and old people and everything looked the same dark wood and if we were in a particularly bauble heavy shop I had to clasp my hands behind my back like a Von Trapp child in order to avoid invoking the you break it you buy it policy on a 42 crystal ashtrayOn one such excursion when I was like eight I found a vintage ish copy of Little Women Because it was a book and because it had some kind of illustration of pretty girls in pretty dresses it was far and away the most interesting thing in there So I indulged in what was then and what remains one of my favorite pastimes asking my mother to buy me something She said no both because it was confusingly expensive and because she doubted eight year old me’s lasting interest in reading a 750 page book from 1868Ever since Little Women has tantalized meI am very pleased to say it lived up to every expectationThis book is so cozy and delightful and happy A lot of the time when series start out in the childhood of characters and then follow their growing up the book gets worse But I always liked reading about this ragtag group of galsWarning spoiler ahead and if you complain about me spoiling a book that was published seven of my lifetime ago I will absolutely freak out so don’t say I didn’t give you a heads upObviously Jo and Laurie were meant for each other and his marrying Amy and Jo’s marrying some random old dude was the biggest flaw of this book But even with that this book ended happy and I enjoyed almost every second of itOkay I’m sorry but Amy is the clear weak link and didn’t deserve Laurie I will not rejoice for them Did I have to take off a half star for that alone? Yes Because it upset me immensely And I won’t apologize If anyone should be apologized to it’s ME And also JO And also LAURIEBut absolutely every other second was a pleasureBottom line This book feels like Christmas cozy ✓comforted ✓joy ✓review to come currently reading updatesI am ready to feel COZY I am ready to feel COMFORTED I am ready to feel JOY that feeling when you spend the majority of the book desperately longing to be a jo but then end up realising youre actually just a beth also the fact that i still like laurie even after he messes around in france trying to “find himself” says a lot about me than it does about him to be fairand dont even get me started on the new film coming out the casting definitely has me feeling some kind of way im still not over the precision of timothée chalamet as laurie the literary character who embodies so many young peoples first experience with f boi heartbreak i mean will you just LOOK at my son?
