Louisa May Alcott's overwhelming success dated from the appearance of the first part of Little Women: or Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy, (1868) a semi-autobiographical account of her childhood years with her sisters in Concord, Massachusetts. Part two, or Part Second, also known as Good Wives, (1869) followed the March sisters into adulthood and their respective marriages. (Summary from Wikipedia) (10 hr 27 min)

Have always loved this book but it's even more effective read. Some of the readers have pronunciation issues, though, that keep me from the 5-star rating I'd give it otherwise. (Not talking about the German girl, she did very well, in spite of the accent, but the Americans that can't say English words)

Prepare for tears

(4 Sterne)

This book always makes me cry and the audio was no exception. I usually prefer books with a single narrator but on the whole the readers on this version are very good.

I love the beautiful idyllic text written by Louisa May Alcott. The reading was very good although I had difficulty understanding the German girl. it did not dispel the excellent writing and poignant notes of this wonderful book.

Good Wives

Great story! Excellent readers with one exception. It is easier to understand the dialect of readers whose primary language is English.

I love the book,but I did not like the reader for chapter 14

enjoyed this story but find some narrators difficult to listen to. I've never narrated any book yet but I can imagine it takes more then a good vocabulary. it's been a treat, thank you.
