March (Novel)

My book group chose to read Geraldine Brooks' March, after having read Little Women last month.  I've liked Brooks' other works so I was excited to pick this novel up.

Here's the review I posted to Goodreads:

Given my lukewarm reaction to Little Women, I was a bit hesitant about March, even though I've liked Geraldine Brooks' other novels. March, however, quickly caught my attention and I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Mr. March is such an obscure character in Little Women; it was a pleasure to see him as an idealistic, passionate youth. It was also refreshing to see Mrs. March as a real, flawed person given to furious outbursts and headstrong actions. I can see why this novel won the Pulizer.
