Publisher's Summary

Most people know this book from the Academy Award-winning motion picture starring Winona Ryder. Now, introduce them to the sparkling American classic behind the movie: a charming portrait of the joys and hardships of the four sisters in Civil War New England. Separated by the war from their beloved parents, these "little women" struggle to find their place in the world.

Audible Editor Reviews

Barbara Caruso's rendering is wonderful. She skillfully combines the voices of a fairly large cast. Just as splendidly, she presents the text in an old-fashioned style, tone and pronunciation befitting the setting of the story. The four sisters, though each unique, must be a challenge even for several voices, but Caruso's solo voice always enthralls. The performance is worthwhile no matter what previous experience with Little Women the listener has.

A thoroughly enjoyable book. Many characters are all bought to life by the excellent narrative of Barbara Caruso's who does a wicked interpretation of Aunt Marshe's Parrot.The book is full of the old world charm and graces of America in the 1860's. My favourite character in the book is the tom boy sister.
Pleased that I bought the book and comes well recommended

Heart-warming classic

Where does Little Women rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is definitely in my top 40 but that is only because I have listened to so many.


What did you like best about this story?

This is such a lovely, gentle story it just takes you by the hand and says 'I am going to tell you a story about four little women and by the end you will have laughed and cried but you will love it all the way.'


What does Barbara Caruso bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

For an English teenage boy to be transported so completely into the household of five American women, Miss Caruso must be very talented.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

You experience each of the girls' trials and tribulations alongside them. Be it Jo or Amy, Meg or Beth your heart cannot help but feel for these girls.
