Little Women  

Tuesday, June 24, 2008

-Louisa May Alcott-

This classic is not a personal favorite, but it is still a great read if you don't mind 562 pages of small print. Little Women is a tale of just that, four adolescent girls and their softspoken mother. Long chapters introduce readers to the four March girls: traditional Meg, outspoken Jo, frail Beth, and socially-aware Amy. Lavish parties, intimate weddings, and close friendships give a sense of hope to a novel otherwise filled with common familial struggles, both financial and personal.


Read the book, then gradually work it into conversation at a dinner party. Everyone will be so impressed at how smart you are.
