It is a first Alcott's book I read.

First of all, Polly is the most angelic character I’ve ever encountered. There is her inner dialogue and script from her journal and so on but it is like she’s just too good to be true. But I do believe there is a person like that in the world. Her story is simple but sweet. A very down-to-earth story about a girl and her daily struggles as a young woman.

But there is one thing I have to complain. I bought the translated version and found it weird to read. Odd translations. Wrong grammar and everything. It’s very clear that even an ordinary reader like me (without a perfect ‘A’ in my language class) can find faults in the translations and I really feel quite disturbed because of it. It is a pity because it is a good story. I couldn’t enjoy it as much as I wanted to.
