Little Women, by Louisa May Alcott

Title: Little Women
Author: Louisa May Alcott
Borrowed from Fairfax county public library Audiobook
Started: 6/20/2017

I've always wondered about this book and finally gave it a try.  Pretty damn good, obvious why it is a classic.  A bit preachy sometimes, but I barely noticed.  I was sucked in immediately and found myself smiling or tearing up with each chapter. I'm an old softy. 

The book I listened to was book 1 in the series, ending with the proposal to Me one year after the start of the book.  I understand subsequent volumes go through the adult lives, but I might stop here. Almost too perfect to carry on.
