Little Men by Louisa May Alcott

Little Men by Louisa May Alcott is the book I most recently finished. I read this in the course of over a month, but if I had read it more frequently, I would have finished it sooner. It is the book between Little Women and Jo’s Boys in the Jo March trilogy.

Jo March has started her school, taking in boys and girls of all different backgrounds to teach them and love them. Similar to Jo’s Boys, there are quite a few different characters, and plot lines, because Alcott basically writes a summary of what happened at Plumfield over the course of six months. I won’t get into much of the story, but if you like Alcott’s work, this would be a good book to read since it has a lot of beloved characters in it.

Alcott’s style can be slightly confusing. It is definitely not modern; therefore, it might be necessary to reread sentences multiple times to understand who is speaking, or what the meaning of the sentence is.

Overall, I’d suggest this book to anybody who really likes Little Women. It’s definitely not as good as Little Women, but it continues the story of our beloved March (and Lawrence, and Bhaer, and Brooke) family.
