About the Author
Louisa May Alcott was born on 29 November 1832 in Pennsylvania. Her father was friends with Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry Thoreau. Alcott started selling stories in order to help provide financial support for her family. Her first book was Flower Fables (1854). She worked as a nurse during the American Civil War and in 1863 she published Hospital Sketches, which was based on her experiences. Little Women was published in 1868 and was based on her life growing up with her three sisters. She followed it with three sequels, Good Wives (1869), Little Men (1871) and Jo's Boys (1886) and she also wrote other books for both children and adults. Louisa May Alcott was an abolitionist and a campaigner for women's rights. She died on 6 March 1888.

I can't even remember the last time I read Little Women, or seen the movie, but it was nice to reread some of these chapters again and relive them. It makes me mad all over again that Jo did not end up with Laurie...WHY?!
Coming from a family of only sisters, with no brothers, this was definitely something I could relate to very much. Although, certain parts, especially between Jo and Amy really frustrated me.
Great read nonetheless.
