4.5 Score: 4.5 (From 814 Ratings)


While their father is away at war, the four March sisters try their best to maintain life in their New England home. Fifteen-year-old Jo, modeled after author Louisa May Alcott, is a bit of a tomboy, tends to get in trouble, and loves writing. The oldest, Meg, works as a governess and puts herself in charge in the absence of their parents. The kind and charitable Beth loves music and being a caretaker. The youngest, Amy, is slightly spoiled and frustrated by being treated as the youngest.
Alcott gives us a realistic account of the girl’s lives – the ups and downs, tragedies and triumphs, successes and failures. It’s long remained one of the most relatable and appealing works of American literature.


  • Super good!

    By jjlish paige
    I read this book for a book report, it was a little long, but really informative. It’s a classic, so it was really good! My mom read a smaller book and we talked about the book. In her book, the detail wasn’t really there. Compare the 2 books together one is obviously more detailed and an overall better book. So 5 stars!
  • A spectacle of timeless themes

    By Qnikha
    This book was amazing from Alcott’s timeless and beautiful writing to the story of these four iconic and beloved girls. The book is their story through their childhood to their adulthood and is so nostalgic towards the end. I cried so many times, and even the ending made me think for hours and hours of the meaning behind the Genius who wrote Little Women. You won’t regret it and I urge you to read it even if you are unsatisfied at some moments, for it has everything and teaches the most valuable lessons without being in your face about it. There’s a reason it is such a timeless classic and watching Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy explore what it means to be content, happy, Rich, successful, or in love is a lesson for us as they discover how different it means to them as well.

  • The Book Worm

    By Hockey Girl 99
    I loved this book from the start. I read every night before I go to bed. When I first started this book I couldn’t put it down. I was up a lot later than I normally stay up while I was reading this book. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a quick read
