Little Women is loosely based on Alcott's childhood experiences with her three sisters.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book looks lovely. Unfortunately, it is full of editing errors. I can't believe the publishing company couldn't find a clean copy of these titles to just print. Little Men and Jo’s Boys have been terrible, way worse than Little Women which had a few errors. My 14-year-old daughter is exasperated. She has been finding errors non-stop. 'Joe' instead of 'Jo', 'yon' instead of 'you', 'can' where it should be 'can't' changing the whole meaning of the sentence, and many more. In other news, my daughter would like a job as editor. She will work for a clean copy of this book. For $25 this is a disappointment. She was hoping to re-read this often, but it is really garbage. We will just get free copies at the library. If you ever do a decent printing of this, we’d love an exchange.
