Introduction

LITTLE WOMEN is a novel by American author LOUISA MAY ALCOTT (1832–1888). The novel follows the lives of four sisters – Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy March – detailing their passage from childhood to womanhood, and is loosely based on the author and her three sisters. The novel has three major themes: domesticity, work, and true love. All of them are interdependent and each is necessary to the achievement of a heroine’s individual identity. Little Women itself has been read as a romance or as a quest, or both.

  "Not For Our Club"by Dyna (see profile) 05/31/10

We felt compelled to read this book and we hated it! It was so slow and long.

 
  "A classic"by Khains (see profile) 03/02/10

Little Women is worth reading. The characters and how they grow and change keep you reading. It stimulated a decent amount of discussion as well.

 
  "All-Time Favorite!"by sajennin (see profile) 08/12/09

I have read Little Women at least ten times throughout my life. Each time I discover something new to love and learn from. If you haven't read this classic, I highly recommend it!

 
  "Wonderful Book Club read"by iamom05 (see profile) 07/21/09

This book is highly enjoyable to read. There is plenty to discuss here and it is interesting. Due to it's length, we spread it out over 2 months to make it more manageable. It's breaks up nicely.

 
  "Loved this book and didn't think I would!"by hartleystudio (see profile) 07/21/09

This book is so interesting to read as a mother of two small children. I found Mrs March to be such an inspiration, albeit a unattainable one. I loved reading about the lives of these wome... (read more)
