I really like Louisa May Alcott, and for a classic book, Little Men is a surprisingly easy read. Normally it takes me a while to adjust to the language in classics but I'm able to get right into Louisa's books without any adjustment.

This book was similar to Little Women in that it's epic, filled with little simple moral stories and simply written, but I didn't like this book as much as Little Women. Little Men covers probably a year or so in the lives of the characters, so there aren't huge changes in the characters over time as in Little Women. Most of the characters in Little Women are part of this story, but are only briefly mentioned and not discussed in detail. I missed those characters and wanted to hear more about them! Also, there were many more characters in this book than in Little Women, so I didn't feel that I got to know each boy quite as well.

But overall, I did like it, just not quite as much next to Little Women.
