100 Book Challenge, Classic, Fiction

Book #59: Little Women

We’re trying out a family book club.  Honestly, I’m struggling to keep up with all the reading, but since I made this ambitious goal of reading 100 books this year, I figured it would incentivize me to spend every spare minute reading.  Oy.

My 11-year-old wanted to kick off our book club with Little Women by Louisa May Alcott.  This is silly, but I’ve only ever read Little Men, and that one a few times.  Little Women is much longer and smaller print and I knew the story well enough to pass off as being well-read in company.  Lazy, I know.

I made it halfway through and was surprised to find how much I enjoyed it.  It made sense to me that Laurie and Jo never end up together because they would have made each other crazy.  It almost made sense why Jo ended up with Professor Bhaer.  The extra stories that were never portrayed in the movie adaptations were delightful.  In all, I can see why it’s a timeless classic.  More importantly, I can see why my 11-year-old has read it three times.

Goodreads rating: 5 stars
