Last month, my book group chose to read Little Women, followed by Geraldine Brooks' March.
Here's the review I posted on Goodreads of Little Women:
Despite having owned Little Women for years, it took the decision of my
book group for me to pick it up and read. Upon starting, it was very
difficult for me to get into the book, for the writing is so very heavy
and the style very preach-y. But soon I great invested in the girls and
wanted to know what would become of them. Jo, representing the closest
thing to a modern woman, was my favorite. Marmee was frustratingly
annoying in her wisdom and flawlessness. The sisters remind me of the
Bennet sisters from Pride and Prejudice and that sisterly dynamic always
makes me yearn for a big family. I don’t think I’ll ever read this
again but am glad I did.
