Little Women

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Louisa May Alcott

Narrated By: Rebecca Burns

Publisher: Tantor Media

Date: August 2008

Duration: 17 hours 30 minutes

Summary:

Generations of people-young and old, male and female-have fallen in love with the March sisters of Louisa May Alcott's most popular and enduring novel, Little Women. Talented tomboy and author-to-be Jo, tragically frail Beth, beautiful Meg, and romantic, spoiled Amy remain united in their devotion to each other and their struggles to survive in New England during the Civil War.

It is no secret that Alcott based Little Women on her own early life. While her father, the free-thinking reformer and abolitionist Bronson Alcott, hobnobbed with such eminent male authors as Emerson, Thoreau, and Hawthorne, Louisa supported herself and her sisters with 'woman's work,' including sewing, doing laundry, and acting as a domestic servant. But she soon discovered she could make more money writing. Little Women brought her lasting fame and fortune, and far from being the 'girl's book' her publisher requested, it explores such timeless themes as love and death, war and peace, the conflict between personal ambition and family responsibilities, and the clash of cultures between Europe and America.

    I have not seen the movie or ever read the book. This is now one of my all time favorites. Loved the cast as well.

  • Devra Hermosilla

    This was a well done version of the story, with great voices. I enjoyed it all the way through to the end.

  • Joan Lindley

    This is one of my all-time favorite books. I read it about once a year from the time I was 10 until about 16 or 17. I enjoy the book more than a radio theatre version of it. That is why I gave it a 3 star.

    Not being a strong reader as a child, I knew Little Women was a classic "must read", but didn't have a clue what it was about. I had the opportunity to listen to it....... boy, I wish I had read it as a child. I too, at age 51, find it to be a classic tale, not to be missed.
