Publisher's Summary

Little Women is recognized as one of the best-loved classic children's stories, transcending the boundaries of time and age, making it as popular with adults as it is with young listeners. The beloved story of the March girls is a classic American feminist novel, reflecting the tension between cultural obligation and artistic and personal freedom.
But which of the four March sisters to love best? For every listener must have their favorite. Independent, tomboyish Jo; delicate, loving Beth; pretty, kind Meg; or precocious and beautiful Amy, the baby of the family?
The charming story of these four "little women" and their wise and patient mother, Marmee, enduring hardships and enjoying adventures in Civil War-era New England was an instant success when first published in 1868 and has been adored for generations.

Beautiful Listen

I had always wanted to read Little Women but never had the time with work and children. I searched for this after joining audible and listened to it on my daily commute. This really is a beautiful story wonderfully told. I've laughed and cried on the train and bus as it's such a captivating and moving story. I'm a fan of Pride and Prejudice and really enjoyed this.

Really AWFUL reading of the story :(

Would you try another book written by Louisa May Alcott and Jane Smiley (introduction) or narrated by Christina Ricci?

No. Christina Ricci is hands down the worst narrator I've ever listened to. Her speech and timing is irregular, she drops in and out of accents and her reading is monotone. Really, really bad.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

See above- the story is lovely, and could be humorous in some places, but the narrator killed the enjoyment of it.
