Book Review of Little Women

275 Words2 Pages
A great classic I read this year was Little Women. This book was written by Louisa May Alcott. As I read this book, I felt the book came alive. It was an exciting book. It was exciting when Jo, one of the four sisters, was mad at Amy, another one of the four sisters, for burning Jo's manuscript. Even though Jo was furious with Amy, she forgave her. This story took place in a small house in which the four girls, their mother, and Hannah, the maid, lived. The four girls' names where Jo, Amy, Beth, and Meg. The girls' father was fighting in the Civil War during most of the story. This made the girls very tense because their father could have died. He ended up being all right and came back to his family. As the story goes on, Meg falls in love with John Brooke. John Brooke is a tutor to the boy next store. The boy next store’s name is Laurie. He is great friends with the girls, but he is secretly in love with Jo. Jo is his best friend out of all the girls. When he tells Jo he loves her and asks for her hand in marriage, she refuses because they are such good friends. Near the end of the story, Beth gets very sick. I believe the fact she was sick it brought the family closer. They realized how important they were to one another. If you want a sad, but loving story this is the one for you. Not only is it exciting, but it touches your heart. I would recommend this book to anybody.
