Hello everyone! I was not online for a few days. I hope all of you have read the little women by now. I am not going to be online for quite a while. So, I make elsa the lead of this discussion.

BTW: do you think jo should have accepted Laurie's proposal? When I read this while I was younger, I had thought the two would make a sweet couple. I was a bit taken aback when jo married the old professor. But when i re-read it, I felt they were meant together.


Apoorva | 2 comments I agree! I love their relationship and and I think they should've been together. But, Jo didn't accept his proposal cuz she didn't have any romantic feelings for him but loved him like a brother. That's unfortunate cuz I was rooting for them and I was disappointed when they didn't end up together. There's other thing to consider-they both have strong tempers and they fight a lot but that's not a reason to not be with someone. What do you think?

Yup. The fact that they have similar attitudes should boost their relationship. not stall it. I was really sad when Beth died. She among the four sistrs deserved to live the most. The relation she shared with jo was really touching

what do you think faith ? elsa?


Elsa Carrion (ecarrion) Sorry guys
I read it and I'm still thinking why is this story considered classical.
It's a story of a family of 5 sisters. I found nothing special about this family. I did notice on my second time reading it that there are a lot of religious references that I didn't remember reading the first time.

I thought it was on the lengthy side, due to the fact that it's included, what seemed like five stories in one. I thought that if it was just Joe's story than it would have been maybe more interesting.

I wasn't very fond of reading about Beth, and I found her wimpy. I wasn't fond of Amy either, I found her shallow. I, for the longest, thought Joe had a preference for females, and I thought maybe that was the reason this was a classic, however that changed toward the end of the story. The only two characters I really could stand was Laurie and his Grandfather and then Laurie went and ruined his image in the end.
I'm not sure why I even gave it 3 stars
