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.More
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.

It is definitely in my top 40 but that is only because I have listened to so many.
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.'
For an English teenage boy to be transported so completely into the household of five American women, Miss Caruso must be very talented.
