Description

Most people know this book from the Academy Award-winning motion picture starring Winona Ryder. Now, introduce them to the sparkling American classic behind the movie: a charming portrait of the joys and hardships of the four sisters in Civil War New England. Separated by the war from their beloved parents, these "little women" struggle to find their place in the world.

Critiques

"Barbara Caruso's rendering is wonderful. She skillfully combines the voices of a fairly large cast....The performance is worthwhile no matter what previous experience with Little Women the listener has." ( AudioFile)

Great audiobook

The narrator did such a good job! Perfect pacing and the dialogue was great. Of course the content was good too. Since a warm-fuzzy book about sisterhood and growing up. I loved it!

Timeless Listen

I first listened to this book, read by this narrator, at age thirteen, and I was thrilled to find it again. The book itself can only be called comfortable, and Caruso's warm, gentle but expressive voice seems meant to read it. She speaks by turns as the motherly Mrs. March, the rough and wild tomboy Jo, gentle Meg, prim Amy, shy, quiet Beth, or even such characters as Laurie, pensive and mischievous by turns, and his gruff but kindly grandfather, and never fails to sound natural. I have been disappointed with other renderings of the story, such as the recent film, simply because they were not as well acted as this one. I always feel as if I'm listening to it being read by the author herself. Maybe it's classified as a book for children and teens; maybe it was written over a century ago. But the story of the four sisters can never be outdated or outgrown.

Glad I waited for this release!

What a wonderful reading by Barbara Caruso! She brings this book to life. I almost bought the other unabridged version, but I held out for another one to be released--and I'm glad I did! This reading is so much better. If you love Little Women, don't hesitate to buy this.

Timeless nuggets of wisdom

What did you love best about Little Women?

I have to admit that I read this at the request of my wife who was covering it with our home schooled children. I was not excited about it as I prefer more "sensational" writings as the character "Joe" puts it. However, I found that it was indeed splendid! I particularly enjoyed the characters, who were vivid and real, and grew through the experiences and trials of life that face us all.

What did you like best about this story?

I thoroughly enjoyed the story and especially the embedded pearls of wisdom and truth judiciously placed throughout. Even though the cultural norms are far different than our own, I found the stories easily understandable and very enjoyable.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This was certainly a book that I did not want to "put down"!

Any additional comments?

I wish I had read it earlier!

definitely worth a listen

I agree w the first reviewer - the narrator is absolute perfection for this particular story. In listening, I realized that my beloved childhood book was most certainly abridged, for this one does go on a bit :-)

And it reflects some odd notions of the time. Of course, the puritan work ethic reigns supreme, but also the place of women, class distinctions (even tho the March's were poor; evidently the Irish were poorer). A LOT of sentimentality, so if you didn't like this as a child, you're not going to like it as an adult.

But if you keep the time frame and point of view of the author in mind, it's really a delightful listen.

Louisa May Alcott's Classic

If you could sum up Little Women in three words, what would they be?

I adored this book when I first read it over 40 years ago. It's timeless, funny and warm without being too saccharine or sentimental. The ending is drawn out a bit long, but doesn't take away from the enjoyment of the story. I'm a picky reader/listener and Barbara Caruso did a top drawer job narrating. She reads with enthusiasm and gives honor to Louisa May Alcott.

Head's Up #3!

Why pay $5.95 for this "Audio Book Du Jour" when the kindle edition is $0.00 (Caution...there are multiple Kindle editions - make sure you select the right one) and after you "purchase" that book the Audible audiobook is $2.99. ***After purchasing the free Kindle book you actually have a choice of 4 different versions of the Audiobook at the $2.99 price. Narrated by Barbara Caruso, Flo Gibson, Lorelei King or Laural Merlington. Obviously this is not a review but I didn't know where else to post.

Aspiring Motherhood

As a mother to both one girl and one boy, this book rightly found its way into my heart. What more could a mother pray for than that her children walk in Truth, humbly serving their family and neighbors with contentment - whatever their social standing?

Mehr als man erwartet!

Dieses Hörbuch wird nicht nur mit viel Liebe zum Detail gelesen, sondern hält auch noch eine angenehme Überraschung parat. Die Fortsetzung 'Little Wives' ist enthalten und nicht wie bei den meisten Veröffentlichung eine eigene Ausgabe. Also nicht wundern wenn der Klassiker 'Little Women' zu Ende ist, das Hörbuch ist es nicht.

Toller Klassiker

Nachdem ich den Film "Betty und Ihre Schwestern" mit W. Ryder kannte, wollte ich nun das Original hören. Es ist absolut hörenswert und wirklich schön. Die Charaktere werden in ihren ganzen Eigenheiten und Besonderheiten lebendig und man genießt dieses Buch einfach - vor allem im englischen Originalton kann man die Sprache genießen. Schön ist , dass "Little Wifes" mit dabei ist. Außerdem ist die Stimme der Sprecherin sehr angenehm zu hören und auch ihre Art der Betonung. Das finde ich sehr wichtig, gerade wenn man 20 Stdn. zuhören will.
