I never read this as a kid, and I can now see why it's such a classic. I just loved it! The characters are beautifully drawn, with a unique personality to each. Reading about their toils and joys as the four sisters grow up in Civil War-era Boston is fascinating, and the romantic in me loved their relationship troubles and happinesses. Aspiring writers will love Jo (my favorite), musicians Beth, artists Amy and maternal women Meg. Great ending, too. I actually shed a few tears! Ladies, if you haven't read "Little Women" yet, you really should - It's a delightful and easy read.
