really liked it

Ah, this is just a lovely classic novel, even if its moralising tone and advice on marital life feel a bit out of date ;) Still, I thoroughly enjoyed it and wish I had persevered all those years ago when I first attempted to read it! I guess I got discouraged at the time by the opening chapters which paint such an idyllic family scene that the pages seemed sticky with sugar ;) It's a lovely tale though, of growing up, finding your own voice and discovering the complexity of human nature. There is a great deal of humour too, and all characters are vivid and likeable. I could definitely relate to Jo in so many ways! I'm glad this happened to be my Christmastime reading :)
