      The book, ladies and gentlemen I very much tried to make everything chronological Anything that isn t, such as Josie whining about acting or whenever the Professor decides to grace the world with his presence, is completely due to my lack of remembrance and also my utter lack of desire to go back through the entire book, rather than skimming for the important bits, as I am already doing Professor chortles Plumfield If everybody could just stop acting in plays here, that d be great.Nan ERMAGERSH [...]

      My A Z challenge for the year with the lovely and vivacious Karly and Kristin has officially begun A is for AlcottRead a book that is over 100 years oldLet the games begin.I always find that reviewing an Alcott book is a bit difficult I kind of have a love hate relationship with her I read Little Women only a few years ago at the request of my mother who loved it, but didn t like the other two books in the series And honestly, I agree with her Little Women though moralistic and preachy, is a ver [...]

      Finally I started reading this as soon as I finished Little Men, but didn t really get into so put it down for a few months Around page 150 I suddenly got hooked on the stories within the book because every chapter in an Alcott novel has its own individual plot and read a few chapters every day until I finished it It s obvious at the end that it s the last book she ll write about the March family as the last page lists what happens to every character which is a bit sad, as Alcott s novels are al [...]

      A long, sometimes tedious, but almost always charming epilogue to Little Women and Little Men Alcott wrote it in 1886, eighteen years after Little Women and two years before her death She must have known, feeling the effects of mercury poisoning from her time as a Civil War nurse, that the lights were really going out, the curtain about to fall.In this book Alcott continues to find a platform for her ideas, including women s suffrage, co education, rehabilitation for criminals, and temperance, a [...]

      This was a great conclusion of the Little Women series by Louisa May Alcott If you enjoyed Little Men, you will enjoy Jo s Boys as it tells what happens to the boys of Plumfield as they get older Definitely check the whole Little Women series out as they are all a joy to read.

      I just finished reading the entire series of the March family and their descendants I homeschool and picked up Little Men for inspiration I gleaned so many wonderful insights for educating young children, finding our personal missions and following your bliss In reading the entire series, I get a vision of what I want our lives to look like as I raise my children and the kind of experiences I want them to have It is easy to involve yourself in the lives of the people in these books because you k [...]

      I grew to love all the characters in Little Men, so one is bound to love this one just as much There s plenty of laughter and fun in this book The end bit has some emotional scenes with wandering Dan and I would have loved to see him happy Ah, but that is life A lovely read.

      Another great work by Louisa May Alcott A must read for Little Women fans I just love this book

      The last sentence of this book had me in tears And now having endeavored to suit every one by many weddings, few deaths, and as much prosperity as the eternal fitness of things will permit, let the music stop, the lights die out, and the curtain fall forever on the March family Its sad to say goodbye to a family that I ve come to know and love in this past year Jo has become somewhat of a mentor to me after reading Little Men and Jo s Boys and so, yes, I m somewhat emotional that I ve finished t [...]

      I am sad to see the curtain close on the tales about the March family It is a little slower paced than Little Women, which is my hands down favorite out of the series, but it was a thoroughly enjoyable read The thing I love most about Louisa May Alcott s March family series Little Women, Good Wives, Little Men and Jo s Boys is the way she gently weaves her philosophies about childrearing, feminism, education and living a good life into her stories in such a gentle, non preachy way This will be a [...]

      There s a certain sense of emptiness that only booklovers will know Upon closing a dear book and saying goodbye to its variety of language and characters, it can often feel like some precious part of one s soul is left behind and lost forever And here I am with a bittersweet lump in my throat and a melancholic longing for something Jo s Boys by Louisa May Alcott is different from the other books in this series It is far dramatic even violent at times in its plot, and is generally a far cry fro [...]

      opens book Ah, I can t wait to re visit all the characters from Little Men.A few chapters later It s kind of boring, but all the boys are still awesome, especially Dan But he has a beard That s weird Oh, well, I ll just ignore it.Later Wow, this is really boring Too much moralizing Whole chapters of it But at least the Josie wanting to be an actress thing is interesting I wish Alcott would focus on Dan everyone else, though And am I the only one who sees definite similarities between Nan and To [...]

      some quotes p 116 Virtue, which means honor, honesty, courage, and all that makes character, is the red thread British put a red thread in their ropes that marks a good man wherever he is Keep that always and everywhere, so that even if wrecked by misfortune, that sign shall still be found and recognized No matter what happens to your body, keep your soul clean, your heart true to those who love, and do your duty to the end p 112 It is the struggle with obstacles which does us good You must padd [...]

      d the curtain fall for ever on the March family.Little Woman is my inspiration in reading books I longed to read it when I was in nursery and actually read it in elementary It was my first book and I m glad to wait for 7 8 years to read this I didn t read little men so I was gobsmacked reading the changes of Jo s boys The transition of roles and generations left me in a daze but it was worth it I really admire Mama Baer s advice and don t forget the playwrights and drama It was raw and different [...]

      Gosh I thought Little Women made me cry This one was even heartbreaking Poor Dan I need to reread these books.

    19. Manisha on said:

      I enjoyed this than the previous book and I ll tell you why It was bittersweet Knowing that this was the last book in the trilogy brought forth nostalgia that I didn t know I had pertaining to this series I might not have loved all the stories of what happened to the girls and their sons, and I might not have agreed with the decisions made, but there was a sense of realism in that Little Women will always be a classic I will re read once in a while to recapture that innocence we never see in bo [...]

      In all honesty, this is a dreary book Imagine the epilogue to the Harry Potter Series, which most people agree is somewhat hamfisted and not up to par, if not blatant fan service Now imagine if J.K Rowling had written it into a full eighth book, rather than a single chapter That is what we have here As the third or fourth, depending on how you care to look at it and final installment in the chronicle of the March sisters and their families, this draws much too heavily on the less compelling Litt [...]

    23. Anne on said:

      Obviously readers of the previous two books in their original publications were clamoring to find out what happened to the titular Little Men, and parts of Jo s Boys definitely feels like a concession to popular opinion It s slower and overtly moralizing than Little Men or Little Women though both of those books have their fair share , but I have to say, I salute Louisa May for not giving in to expectations in every quarter After having had to marry off Jo at the end of Little Women, Naughty Na [...]

    24. Elvira on said:

      This was a good read mainly because of the previous books, especially Little Women It is interesting to take the narrator of Little Women , where Alcott writes So grouped, the curtain falls upon Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy Whether it ever rises again, depends upon the reception given to the first act of the domestic drama , and compare it to the tired narrator of Jo s Boys It is a strong temptation to the weary historian to close the present tale with an earthquake which should engulf Plumfield and it [...]

      Standing by the 5 stars As I ve said before, these people are too intimately wound up with my psyche to be rated objectively There s some preaching but to my eye it s not as heavy handed as in Little Women There are lots of great female role models with respect to the times All of the young women are working toward careers, with the exception of Daisy that natural housewife The young men are supportive and for the most part, respectful There are anachronisms aplenty, but there s also love and jo [...]

      Una bella e dolce conclusione per la famiglia March anche se non paragonabile ai due primi libri Ho adorato Nat e Dan e non posso credere che Dan Spoiler sia rimasto solo una fine che non mi sarei affatto aspettata per lui perch anche se lui era un anima nera avrebbe solo tratto vantaggio da Bess e lei da lui Il troppo moralismo di questo libro l unica cosa che non posso accettare Lui meritava come gli altri l a perch si riscattato o cercato di farlo in entrambi i libri Sono romanzi di formazion [...]

    29. Katie on said:

      This was a delightful read Very simple, easy to put down and pick up again, and true to the style of Louisa May Alcott, leaves little nuggets of wisdom all along the way It s fairly short, and a good supplement to read while you re reading something depressing yet beautiful, like a Hardy, to lift your spirits when his story gets too sad Quotable Quotes The three sisters stood a moment looking up at the beloved picture with eyes full of tender reverence and the longing that never left them for th [...]
