Little Women is one of my all-time favorite books and stories. As a child I fell in love with the 1994 version, and then I saw the 2019 version, and it was so different and unique and the actors were so great that I fell in love all over again. Christmastime always brings me back to Little Women, not that it's a Christmas story particularly, but it feels like it to me, plus the movies always have great winter scenes. So this year, to take it a step further from just reading the book and watching my two favorite movie versions, I decided I would watch ALL the versions I could get my hands on. I was not able to find the 1917 and 1918 silent films, but I watched the 1933, 1949, 1994, and 2019 movies as well as the PBS mini series...
I know this is probably an unpopular view, and I don't know why it is, but I find when I read Tolkien my mind loves to wander. I love his stories, I love his characters, I love the movies based off his books, but I lose focus when reading his books. It took me a while to figure it out but I believe it's because there is little dialogue compared to description of adventure. I think I'm a reader who thrives off character interaction, and sometimes I would read two whole chapters in The Hobbit where there was only a line or two of dialogue.
This was a big book that blended magic and Salem history beautifully! I am happy I chose it for my Halloween read this year. It's a story of many things; witches and suffragettes, love and evil, motherhood and sisterhood. So many themes run through this well-thought out novel that it kept the pages turning furiously for me.
This was not the typical witch story I thought I was going to be getting when I picked this up. Wanting a story of magic and maybe even some scares, this was nothing like that but still it did not disappoint. This is a fantastic story of mothers and daughters...with a little magic tossed in here and there. If you like Alice Hoffman, you'll love Louisa Morgan!
