AND GET YOUR SENTENCE LENGTHENED Now he s cryingOH MAN I JUST WANT TO REACH THROUGH THE BOOK AND HUG GET YOUR SENTENCE LENGTHENED Now he s cryingOH MAN I JUST WANT TO REACH THROUGH THE BOOK AND HUG feeeeeeeeeeeeeels Rest of the book Well everything s turning out okay Dan s back home everyone s happily married or engaged EXCEPT DAN Who it seems will never get a happy ending WHICH IS NOT FAIR I m soooo glad Nat and Daisy are going to live happily ever after though They re both sweet Now she s wrapping up the story and DAN DIED DAN DIED DEFENDING THE INDIANS NOOOOOOOOO spends the rest of the day moping around the house because DAN Yes indeed I do have to admit that while Little Women is both brilliant and will always remain a strong and magical Meditation Express: Stress Relief in 60 Seconds Flat personal reading favourite and that Little Men albeit unfortunately not uite as delightful as Little Women is still engagingly readable and as such also a solidly successful seuel Jo s Boys the third and also the final instalment of Louisa May Alcott s Little Women series while I guess that it doesrovide a decent enough conclusion in so far that it resents and features how in articular the characters encountered as Plumfield students in Little Men live and thrive or conversely sometimes fail and do not not succeed as adults well Jo s Boys has for me and in my humble opinion for the most art been a rather massively disappointing and indeed also often uite frustrating and even mildly to majorly annoying reading experience For although both Little Women and Lit A long sometimes tedious but almost always charming epilogue to Little Women and Little Men Alcott wrote it in 1886 eighteen years after Little Women and two years before her death She must have known feeling the effects of mercury oisoning from her time as a Civil War nurse that the lights were really going out the curtain about to fallIn this book Alcott continues to find a Communicating With Animals : The Spiritual Connection Between People and Animals platform for her ideas including women s suffrage co education rehabilitation for criminals and temperance and makes a mini Republic out of Plumfield where they canlay out Also interesting were Jo s troubles with being a famous writer which must have echoed Alcott s This is the only book in the series that often strays from New England out west I figli di Jo e Fritz Bhaer Teddy e Rob erano soprannominati il Leone e l'Agnello il rimo era coraggioso come il re degli animali mentre il secondo era mite come un agnellino La madre lo chiamava la mia O London to a shipwreck at sea and these Our Fake Relationship parts seemed to be either very sparingly drawn or leaning toward melodramatic It took some suspension of disbelief to read about Emil s shipwreck and daring heroism and Dan s rescue of twenty men from a flooded mineStill I though Jo s Boys gave an interesting window into Alcott s ideas and the changing world of the late 19th century the telephone and camera both make apperances It s hard not to read it as a what could have been given the differences between the characters and theeople on which Alcott based them By the time she wrote Jo s Boys two of Alcott s sisters had died one had lost a husband and Alcott herself had never gotten marriedThis was a compelling read for me though for its famliar characters and the world it created for them than for its literary genius and I felt a little sad at the end knowing the curtain had indeed closed on the March family Finally I started reading this as soon as I finished Little Men but didn t really get into so The Blitzkrieg Legend put it down for a few months Aroundage 150 I suddenly got hooked on the stories within the book because every chapter in an Alcott novel has its own individual The Crown plot and read a few chapters every day until I finished it It s obvious at the end that it s the last book she ll write about the March family as the lastage lists what happens to every character which is a bit sad as Alcott s novels are always such sweet simple reads Luckily I have Eight Cousins and Rose in Bloom on my bookcase to read I once read the synopsis of one of Alcott s older less Über Nacht popular novels on and it was described as a collection of wholesome and moralistic stories which I think is aerfect description of Jo s Boys A lot of eople these days don t like stories which have meanings and morals but I do I guess I m kind of old fashioned in that way I would love to live I do I guess I m kind of old fashioned in that way I would love to live a family similar to that of Jo March s 910 My A Z challenge for the year with the lovely and vivacious Karly and Kristin has officially begun A is for AlcottLet the games beginI always find that reviewing an
Alcott book is a bit difficult I kind of have a lovehate relationship with her I read Little book is a bit difficult I kind of have a lovehate relationship with her I read Little only a few years ago at the reuest of my mother who loved it but didn t like the other two books in the series And honestly I agree with her Little Women though moralistic and reachy is a very beautiful and tender story about the lives of four sisters and how those lives grow and change every year into adulthood and marriage and motherhood but that sisterly bond that they have remains strong and steadfast despite the change and distance time has laced on it Little Men is basically about the students at the school that Jo and her husband have founded and though there are some sweet and touching moments in that one I found the complete and utter lack of an ongoing lot rather boring and as most of the stories contained in it are about the everyday lives of children I found the whole thing kind of dull Now in Jo s Boys the Everything But The Girl preaching and moralistic side of Alcott is in full force but I admit I enjoyed this one much better than the second installment I will break it down into Pros and ConsPROsI still love Jo She is such an intelligent and witty character and Alcott.

Has always written her with a lot of depth Her relationship with her much older husband Fritz is absolutely beautifully ortrayed here and I think their brief tender moments beat out any Nicholas Sparks insta love romance fest any day The way she cares for the boys and girls at the college she founded is very sweet and her relationships with many of them are actually very endearing She was by a mile my favorite Modern Art Death of a Culture part of this bookDan Dan Dan Dan Dan I absolutely love the character of Dan who was the iconic bad boy of Book 2 We see him as an adult in this one and I completely fell in love with his rugged outdoorsy good looks and his boyish charm He still has the bad boy thing going on but Dan has matured and has a strong will to do somethingositive with his life one that his adoptive mother Jo can be The Lost Library: The Autobiography of a Culture proud of him for I longed to read his chapters and I only wish he were a biggerresence in this bookThere is much of a ongoing Das Unbewusste vom Standpunkt der Physiologie und Descendenztheorie plot in this one unlike Little Men even though stories of each character make up thatlot I found it much engaging and a lot less boring that its Ibn Saud: The Desert Warrior Who Created the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia predecessorI loved Amy and Laurie s daughter Bess and Meg s daughter Josie and thought they were amazing counterparts to younger Amy and Jo from book 1 Bess is a wonderful artist and Josie is a very talented actress and I love that Alcott wrote about two such female characters whoursued and were successful in the arts Love Letters particularly during a time when women were not as successful in those endeavorsOk now for the CONSI really really really don t like what Alcott did to Meg s character I admit that Meg was always my least favorite of the Little Women but she is so god awful in this one I wantedunch her in the is so god awful in this one I wanted to Eat to Beat Illness punch in the She is so moralistic andreachy and wants her children to be and do exactly what she wants them to do and not what they want to do She forbids Daisy to marry Nat even though THEY HAVE LOVED EACH OTHER FOR TEN YEARS simply because Nat isn t rich enough for Daisy Last time I checked didn t Meg marry a oor man when her family didn t want her to And she keeps insisting on a career for Demi that she wants even though Demi obviously wants other things But Demi always the dutiful son wants to lease his mother #Than He Wants To #he wants to happy Barf Barf Barf I wanted Meg to dieAdult Amy is SO BORING She makes Lissa from Vampire Academy look like Amy Poehlerview spoilerSeriously Why is Dan not good enough for Bess They OBVIOUSLY loved each other I could tell during the first 10% that there was a major love interest for these two And its kind of a beauty and the beast thing which could have been awesome and beautiful and ure But NO Dan is not good enough for erfect Bess who needs someone with wealth and status and Λίγη Ζωή power I would have loved sweet Bess to tame Wild Dan a bitbut Dan could have given some zest to her as well taken her out west toaint beautiful landscapes And these two could have been really happy together I saw a whole ending lanned out for the two of them I kept believing it would work But no Alcott had to take what was left of my romantic impulses and smash them BOO HISS Instead Bess ends up marrying some nameless schmuck and Dan ends up dying alone and unmarried I almost dropped a star because of this hide spoile. Azioni e la vivacità della ropria fanciullezza; con i suoi riccioli selvaggiamente arruffati con uelle gambe e uelle braccia così lunghe sempre in movimento e con la voce ossente Ted s'imponeva su tutt.
