      Little men is the second book about the three surviving March sisters. Little Women saw them all married and happy, in Little Men we mainly follow Jo and her boys as she runs a boarding school in the house she inherited from aunt March.

      The old house


      is filled with boys, and more come along the way.

      As the March sisters, they all have character flaws they have to battle.

      The two other March sisters, Beth and Meg, play minor roles, but Meg’s children Daisy and Demi are both pupils at the school.

      The little men of this book are younger than the little women of the first book, so their problems are often of another nature.

      It’s still a well written book though, but it sometimes seems a bit more like a collection of stories than one book.

      The boys ...


      • Little Men - Louisa May Alcott
      all have their good and bad sides, and many could well have lived next door to you.

      Having girls and boys at the same school was way ahead of the it’s time, and although some of the teaching seem a bit dated, it is a nice tale

      of how both genders can contribute by helping each other.

      It’s not all happiness, and in telling how the father of Meg’s husband dies, the author shows real compassion without letting it get too sloppy, making this book a good mixture of the serious and the funny.
