  2. I probably judge Little Men unfairly because, well, it s just not Little Women I think I was expecting to much of it I was also upset by, and this is silly, the fact that Jo turned down Teddy s proposal which then led me to view Jo s and the professor s relationship negatively So it had a big strike against it to start with for me Let s be honest, it s hard to top something as good as Little Women I gave it 3 stars, it probably deserved four.

  3. There is not another book in all of literature that I hold as dear as this one I never expect to find another that gives me half as much pleasure It would be impossible to count how many times I ve read it over the years it has to be dozens and dozens by now , and it remains a locale of constant pilgrimage, as I still return to it at least once a year I m always a bit nervous whenever I take it up again that my education of postmodern isms will have made me suddenly immune to its charms and if t [...]

  4. When I was in the 5th grade, my mother gave me this book Granted, it was an abridged version for children, but it was a CHAPTER BOOK, and was REALLY LONG, and was the first absolute first classic story that I d ever read I spent the next two years reading this book over and over again.I remember having a Snoopy sticker the nicest sticker I d ever seen of Snoopy and stuck it to the front cover of my book to mark it as my own.30 years later, I read Little Women Which I loved And a week later, when [...]

  5. I have always enjoyed these classic books They were originally written for older children and the easy language and innocent themes reflect this This is the 3rd in the Little Women series and follows the lives of grown up Jo, her husband and the 12 boys and 2 girls that she teaches in her boarding school It is full of traditional morals and is highly didactic It is essentially a collection of short stories As a mother, these books remind me of some of the traditional values that I want to teach [...]

  6. I found this book to be even entertaining and heart warming than Little Women and I loved, loved, loved that book Little Women, of course, is a pre requisite to Little Men However, my 10 year old boy read Little Men first and still absolutely fell in love with the book and all the characters Now, he is inspired to read Little Women something he felt sure boys would not read My 13 year old girl read Jo s boys sequel to Little Men loved it as well Here is my Little Men review I posted on Paperbac [...]

  7. Reading this book felt so right There are not lots of books out there that you can say this about.I could totally feel those old feelings that I used to get when I was first reading Little Women The atmosphere was so familiar and fortunately, this fact didn t make it a boring read My only problem with it was SPOILER ALERT I m gonna give you some space so that you don t accidentally read it John Brooke s death I mean, why

  8. Little Men is, technically, the sequel to Little Women and picks up a good numbers of years later, after Jo March and her husband, Professor Bhaer, as they start their school at Plumfield, the house that originally was owned by Jo s Aunt March The novel opens when Nat, a street bound boy with an amazing ability to play the violin beautifully, shows up on Jo s doorstep, and from then on out the story features a stable but large group of kids and their kind and guiding adult influences The Bhaer s [...]

  9. I re read Little Women, which resonated with me at age 24 going on 25 in a way that it never did when I was younger, and then since I knew nothing would satisfy me but Alcott, I decided to keep going, since I d never read the sequels.Little Men is utterly charming, and you can tell that Alcott just went to town creating the school of her dreams I told my mom about it and she said, It sounds like homeschooling Each boy has his education tailored to his interests and abilities, when they can t ge [...]

  10. Someone once told me that Little Men was written before Little Women When she tried to get it published she was refused She was told that the public wanted a story about young ladies from a woman, not young men It was after that, that she wrote Little Women Sometime after that became a huge success she published Little MenI m not certain if she found someone to publish it for finally resorted to doing it herself This motivated me to find and read Little Men which was goodd with this prior knowle [...]

  11. Lovable hoyden Jo from Little Women has grown up and married and, along with her Germanic Bhaer of a husband, now runs a school for boys at Plumfield In addition to her own children she s got 12 little men that she s lovingly shaping and wants to add some girls to the mix as well Through a series of vignettes we see Jo and her charges through a series of adventures where the March family continue their almost too good to be true development of real family values in post civil war Massachusetts U [...]

  12. This wasring You can tell Alcott s heart just wasn t into writing this the way it was with Little Women It s episodic, which doesn t bother me, except that the episodes don t make you feel any closer to any of the characters The only ones I felt close to were carry overs from Little Women Jo, Laurie, Fritz, etc The kids all sort of blended together after a while, and I wasn t really invested in any of them Spoiler in this sentence The death of John Brooke felt like it was thrown in to try to len [...]

  13. After finishing Little Women, I dove straight into Little Men, the second volume of the series Little Men continues some years after Little Women left of and details the life of Jo as she and her husband runs a school for young boys.This is a charming book, almost as charming as Little Women but not quite It also lacks the depth of the latter and reads like a series of short stories detailing the lives of the boys attending the school.I really liked Dan, the young wild boy who has experienced s [...]

  14. Una lectura tremendamente entra able y a apropiada para estas fechas navide as a pesar de que ninguno de los cap tulos se desarrolla en Navidad sino que se cubren aproximadamente 6 meses que van desde un poco antes del verano hasta Acci n de Gracias.En esta novela acompa amos a la en otro tiempo indomable Jo March que dirige junto con su marido una escuela hogar para ni os algunos son hu rfanos y otros son simplemente son ni os cuya educaci n le han confiado, entre ellos, la de sus sobrinos Demi [...]

  15. A very good read Loved reading the journey of Jo s boys and girls Each one was unique and the way they re taught the virtues in the school is very nice A heartwarming read IT s as good as the first book

  16. One of my childhood favorites I actually read this long before I read Little Women Nat was one of my favorite characters In rereading, I realized that really the book is a series of little stories There isn t a real overreaching plot other than watching the boys develop over a short year s time There s quite a bit of preaching that I completely missed when I read it as a child All I remembered were the characters and some of the incidents It s a sweet read about a time and place that no longer e [...]

  17. Il capitolo in cui Dan viene scagionato dall accusa di furto vale l intero libro Certo, chi come me ha trascorso l estate a contatto con bambini e ragazzi delle medie, sorrider dell ingenuo candore dei Piccoli uomini della Alcott, ma che importa Il lettore, io in prima persona, avevo voglia di credere ai buoni sentimenti che spingono i protagonisti del romanzo, e quando l autrice non si perde troppo in prediche e panegirici edificanti il racconto vibrante, coinvolgente e a tratti commovente.

  18. I think the last time I read this book was about in 1989 and was surprised at how much of it I remembered It is rag tag and episodic, as the author herself freely admits, but genuinely involving It gets dreadfully sentimental at many points, but so does Dickens To a modern reader, or at any rate this one, it s interesting how much of it is an apologia for her father and his educational theories famously his school was closed down after Louisa s novel became best seller, his own Record of a Schoo [...]

  19. I never realized there was a continuation of the stories and lives of my beloved March family Therefore it was such a pleasant surprise to reunite with the dear characters once Little Men follows Jo Bhaer and her husband in their quest to educate and raise young boys at their school I was a little disappointed to find that the majority of the March family was forgotten and merely existed as a background story But as the little women grew up, I guess it was time to focus on a new generation of l [...]

  20. August 2016 re listened with the kidsFor the last 20 years this book has been one of the greatest influences over my life The moral lessons, as are commonplace in Alcott s writing, are tender and sweet The storytelling is so enjoyable The characters are lovable and easy to invest in Taken together, however, the effect is downright inspiring LMA has proven that she knows and loves boys and their pranks as much as she loves girls and their many complexities I am a better mother, a better teacher a [...]

  21. What a delight to read this book in the summer time and the majority of this book took place in the summertime Oh boys will be boys and that is certainly what this book is about Jo and her husband have their own children and run a school where there are lots of boys of all ages and each chapter tells of the antics It was an easy read with the warmth and love that only Louisa May Alcott can write.

  22. If I had to grab just a few books out of my burning house, this would be one of them I learned about how to parent and educate my son in this delightful story than I have reading any other book specifically written on those subjects It is a treasure that I will cherish as long as I remain a parent.

  23. This is just a lovely little romp, very similar to Little Women, and therefore very warm and comfortable, just like its predecessor If you like Little Women, you ll like this It s one of those books that just meanders on, and feels so familiar and charming because it captures the child in all of us.

  24. Star Rating 4.25 starsPlot With two sons of her own, and twelve rescued boys filling the informal school at Plumfield, Jo March now Jo Bhaer couldn t be happier But despite the warm and affectionate help of the whole March family, boys have a habit of getting into scrapes, and there are plenty of troubles and adventures in store description What I Liked Everything Oh it s so hard to narrow down to just a few things what I like I could go on for hours The main thing is probably the characters, th [...]

  25. I m just going to say that this book was adorable Demi and Daisy, Nat and Dan, ALL the boys, and Nan, made up the book so wonderfully well and added such detailed characters it would be hard not to like almost all of them.My favorite was Dan, however Because he entered the book as such a ruff, loveless, wild creature, who harmed the school and was sent away But when Jo Mother Bhaer sees him all torn and hurt lying in the straw, pleading with his eyes, you just want to rescue him yourself And the [...]

  26. I like this one better than Little Women but not as much as Jo s Boys I adore Dan from the moment he slouches in, and Tommy Bangs reminds me of my own boy There s not as much overt moralizing here as in LW, and the scenes of domestic life are somehow a little vibrant in their cheerful chaos It s in this book that one really sees how perfect the Professor is for Jo, and how happy she is with a houseful of harum scarum boys to tend It s certainly hard to be objective about a book one has read a z [...]

  27. I was curious to see how this had been abridged to make it palatable to modern youth I d read most of the original as a child but had lost interest part way though This version at less than 100 pages is a good adaptation and at 5 for the dollar a good bargain It gives the feel of the story and could be good for young readers Perhaps as bed time stories It s a bit treacley for adults but I might just dig up the original and give it a go.
