Growing up I never realized that Little Women was only the first of three books written by Louisa May Alcott. I loved reading Little Women and when I discovered there were more books, I grabbed at the chance, re-read Little Women and immediately followed it up with Little Men....

Too often in today's world, young folks don't realize how wonderful these stories of old are, how much proper teaching goes into them, how ethical they are, and how beautifully written they are full of inspiration and wonder. I found Little Men very inspiring with teachable moments both for parents and children alike. I enjoyed following the story along as the realization of Jo's dreams to have her life filled with lots of boys came to fruition. It was also extremely nice to see her value little girls too and bring them into the fray and teaching both boys and girls alike.

I listened to this book to audio recording and immensely enjoyed the verbalization of the reader. Each character had his/her own voices and it was extremely lovely to just drive and enjoy the story as it unfolded.

I highly recommend this book to all - old and young alike - as each can learn and take away great lessons in respect, love, and responsibility.

Happy Reading!

Louisa May Alcott was one of my favorite girlhood authors, and Little Women is still one of my all-time favorites. But although I have read it several times (as well as listened to an excellent audio version), I have never re-read the sequels Little Men and Jo's Boys since my initial reading of them at about age 12.

I recently obtained audio copies of both of these books and anticipated listening to them as eagerly as my first reading, since after so many years I really remembered nothing at all about them. And while Little Men was merely satisfactory (more about that in my review of that book) Jo's Boys proved to be an enjoyable and satisfying conclusion to the March family saga.

Although not quite as captivating as Little Women, still it shares many similarities. Taking place 10 years after the end of Little Men, it continues the stories of the young men of Plumfield as they each seek to find their place in the world. So while the narrow focus of Little Men on children and its exclusive setting of Plumfield made it the dullest book of the trilogy, in Jo's Boys Alcott again returns to a wider setting as she recounts the adventures and misadventures of the various young men and women introduced in Little Men in settings as varied as Austria, a Kansas prison, and of course, dear old Plumfield, now transformed into Lawrence College.

Fans of Little Women will be glad that Jo, Meg, Amy and Laurie, after an almost total absence in Little Men, are again center stage. In fact, Alcott worked in a bit of autobiographical elements as "Mrs. Jo" has now become a famous author, who writes stories for young girls, and who struggles with the trials and tribulations of celebrity-hood. She also works in some of the current elements of the times in which she wrote, as the young ladies discuss higher education and careers for women, as well as suffrage.

There are only a few weaknesses in Jo's Boys, none of them major. A couple -- namely Emil's relentless use of nautical jargon and Jo's frequent lapses into Marmee-esque moralizing -- carried over from Little Men. Although I am glad that Alcott didn't give everyone a happily-ever-after ending in Jo's Boys, still I felt that the end of the book came a bit too abruptly, almost as though she just got tired of writing it.

Although this is a bit no-frills as audio books go -- no introductory music or announcer, for instance -- still it is an excellent production. Tantor doesn't always have the best narrators, but I must say that Tavia Gilbert did a fine job on this one.

Because these are public domain books, the publisher simply downloaded the scanned version from somewhere and printed. I like the cover, but because the original was scanned, there are odd skips in the lines that make no sense, disrupting the reading. I love LM Alcott books, so I'll keep these, but my enjoyment is severely tempered by the poor quality of this publication.

When I was a little girl, this was one of my favorite books. I read and re-read it many times and always with great enjoyment. I bought it recently as a bit of nostalgia. I still enjoy the book.

The book is filled with little morals that had a great impact upon me as a girl, and I can see why now. They are woven into the story. The characters of the boys and girls are good examples of the values and beliefs of the time. They had little wholesome adventures and had their faults. They also had unusual parental disciplines. All quite realistic.

Christian families looking for wholesome children's reading will find this a good selection.

The story is for five stars worth of wonderful Louisa May Alcott. This sequel to "Little Men" is set ten years after the first book and follows her "Little Men" as the become young men. HOWEVER, this paper back format and send about 11" x 13" and the font is rather small, hence the loss of a star.

No page numbers, book information- such as year published and random characters and symbols! See the attached photo.
Makes me wonder how much of this text has been screwed up.
