So I must confess I never have read Little Women. I know that’s crazy. I did however when I was younger read these little novellas of Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy. So I kinda knew the story.
This book started off really slow and it took me just a little bit to get into the book. After I got into the book though I really started to get into it. I devoured it. It was good. It was just like how the characters were in the books…well modern day wise.
In this version:
Meg is a slut.
Jo is well Jo.
Beth is an introvert. (I was a bit confused how the author was trying to portray Beth. I was getting some mixed signals from this one.)
Amy is a brat.
The story was good but the author left it open for a sequel. Not that I don’ t mind because she developed them so beautifully. It was just annoying that some were left wide open or just ignored and swept under the rug.
I give this a 4 out of 5 stars.
