After trying quite hard to read something and make my tiny brain expand in terms of knowledge about this world and also my limited vocabulary, I actually finished my first book of 2021 just last month. But nevertheless, it was actually worthwhile or in the words of Jo March –had a capital time!
A little premise:
Okay, so little women for those of you who don’t know is about the March family consisting of four sisters – Meg, Jo, Beth, Amy and their mother and a maid as well as cook. The father of these sisters was out in the war field and thus the story begins when they befriend their neighbour, Laurie.
My thoughts on characters:
I really like these girls. Jo is my fab but Beth is a darling. I just can’t get enough of her. All of these characters have such unique characteristics that makes them what they are. But apart from this, they show some other traits which makes them all so appealing. Like, they are not just the stereotypical traits they are initially describes as –Meg the motherly one, Jo the tomboyish one, Beth the kind one, and Amy the little one but with an air of importance, but so much more.
Louis May Alcott’s writing makes me feel so cuddled up in a blanket and gives me the vibe of good times, if that ever existed.
Well, now to talk about Laurie, well he in my opinion, the charming but also a bit bitter but a dear friend of the March’s. He is really an actual ally of the March family in the times of crisis.
And Marmee is just an ideal and loving mother. I really liked Marmee’s character in the sense that she was a balance of all of her children. I like the way she condoles Jo while she was having a bad day (in the Jo meets Apollyon chapter).
And Mr Laurence is one of my faves. His relationship each and every character is different and likeable in its own way. I specifically, liked his relationship with Beth. (I absolutely adored the chapter, Beth finds the palace beautiful).
My general thought on the book:
I really really liked this book a lot, not gonna lie. The book made me feel so warm and comfortable as if I am wrapped around in a blanket sitting near the hearth kin the March’s house watching their daily adventures.
Would I recommend it?
Absolutely! This book is all you need to set your mood alright. Also, I am really surprised that I enjoyed a classic, cause’ I thought that day would never come. This could be given to the fact that this book is written pretty much in an easy to comprehend way, and it was easy to go through.
I will especially recommend it reading this book during these difficult times when all we want is a warm hug. And I assure you, this book will give you many!
