Jo's Boys is the third book in the Little Women trilogy by Louisa May Alcott, published in 1886. In it, Jo's "children", now grown, are caught up in real world troubles. All three books - although fiction - are highly autobiographical and describe characters that were really in Alcott's life. This book contains romance as the childhood playmates become flirtatious young men and women. The characters are growing up, going out into the world and deciding their futures.(Summary from Wilkipedia) (9 hr 36 min)

Reviews

Love it

(5 stars)

Watch out. Rude people here leave spoilers below. I'm so happy with the stories and if you loved Little Women you will love continuing on with the other books in the series. All the volunteers did great. I wish suzie G. Would fix whatever is beeping constantly in the background of all her recordings. It's maddening and those chapters tho read well, are annoying and better read yourself.

Worth listning to

(3 stars)

I always find multiple readers a little hard to listen to, but these did a fairly good job. The story in it self was okay, a bit too moralizing for my taste but quite nicely written.

Beautiful

(5 stars)

A very good end to a very good series. Loved it from start to end. Thank you to all the readers!

(5 stars)

It was so devastating that Dan was in love with Bess and couldn't be with her. His life was already so awful!

Awesome! I hate it when the last page is read. I want more!

What a great story!!

(5 stars)

Great readers! There was one that had a beeping sound in the background and was distracting but she read well just had to pay closer attention.

Calming

I have loved the rest of the trilogy this one is definitely may favourite

(2 stars)

The worst recording I've listened to so far. Some of the readers couldn't pronounce words or names correctly. A few of the voices were VERY annoying to listen to, particularly the young lady who read chapter 20. I wanted to dig my ear drums out. There's a mistake at 8:04 in the chapter entitled Nat's New Year, where the reader repeats a sentence.
