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 ours a 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 Ans
Yes, yes I AM a grownass man reading this, but I m not ashamed I also read the Twilight sa ha ha ga a bunch of Charlaine Harris as well, remember Some rules simply do not apply.What I tried to do here was dispel the extra melodrama and 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 and 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 and 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, s
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 time.The 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 h
I M IN LOVE, I M IN LOVE, AND I DON T CARE WHO KNOWS IT When I was a child, my mother used to drag me to antique stores all the time There is nothing boring to a kid than an antique 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 ashtray.On 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 1868.Ever since, Little Women has tantalized me.I am very pleased to say it lived up to every expectation.This 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 gals Warning, spoiler ahead, and if you complain about me spoiling a bo
A new movie is coming out December 25thI ve never read it so I might have to do a readalong for it that month I hated this book.I 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 something.Whether 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 Sue Really 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
The book begins Christmas won t be Christmas without any presents, grumbled Jo, lying on the rug.It s so dreadful to be poor sighed Meg, looking down at her old dress.I 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 sniff.We ve got Father and Mother, and each other, said Beth contentedly from her corner There 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 book.Louisa herself was fiercely independent and didn t marry Of course, Jo, her doppelganger and the heroine of the book, did marry I think the struggle for girls and women to be themselves while following convention is an experience that resonates today I also think that, ironically, when people today want to return to the simple life, they all forget that there was no simple life Although youngest sister Amy carries her books to school, writes with an inkwell and fights over pickled limes, her father is fighting a real war fought for ideology and national unity Martha Stewart has us searching for the good things and harkening back to garden bounties but nineteenth century girls and women were nearly bound to
