I'm feeling generous enough to give this book 3 stars because it was laugh out loud funny. Really. There was rarely a page go by that didn't mention someone's pale face or someones eye's welling with tears. I'm not kidding.
Anyway, I picked it up because I recently bought the movie and read that the movie was much better than the book. Well, the movie was pretty funny too, so I just had to know what the book was like. Now I know.
For those who don't know, this was the first novel written by Louisa May Alcott when she was only 17 years old. It was never published in her lifetime and was only recently discovered and published in 1988. You should be able to tell right away why it was never published in her lifetime...
