  • One of the parts I like best is when Alcott writes about Jo and her new found fame as a writer, she's really writing about herself and many absurd fans and fan letters she got and it is really amusing

      Jo’s boys is the last book about the March sisters, their offspring and all the children at Jo’s school. In this book, the children are growing up, the March girls’ mother is dead as is Laurie’s father, and the young folk are off to university or off into the world find their own way and to earn their own income.

      As they all go more or


      less different ways, it’s several different store-lines, some linked, some standing on their own.

      As the children aren’t children anymore, their problems are now often of the romantic kind and there is a lot of budding couples in this book.

      Alcott deals with several things that she didn’t like with her own time, some of which can seem a bit dated and her solutions maybe overly ...


      • moralistic today.

        The boys are off on more dramatic adventures, and some of them travel far away from home.

        They all come home though, but now it’s not always as easy for the Jo and her husband to find solutions for their problems.

        One of the parts I like best is when Alcott writes about Jo and her new found fame as a writer, she’s really

        writing about herself and many absurd fans and fan letters she got and it is really amusing.

        The plays and school seem a bit too moralistic in this book, but I like how both the young men and the young women in the end find out what they want to do with the rest of their lives, without it turning into a too sloppy and tear-dropping happily-ever-after.
