    • The book, ladies and gentlemen: (I very much tried to make everything chronological. Anything that isn't, such as Josie whining about acting or whenever the Professor decides to grace the world with his presence, is completely due to my lack of remembrance and also my utter lack of desire to go back through the entire book, rather than skimming for the important bits, as I am already doing.)Professor: *chortles*Plumfield: If everybody could just stop acting in plays here, that'd be great.Nan: ER [...]

    • My A-Z challenge for the year with the lovely and vivacious Karly and Kristin has officially begun! A is for AlcottRead a book that is over 100 years oldLet the games begin.I always find that reviewing an Alcott book is a bit difficult. I kind of have a love/hate relationship with her. I read Little Women only a few years ago at the request 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 preachy, is [...]

    • Finally! I started reading this as soon as I finished Little Men, but didn't really get into so put it down for a few months. Around page 150 I suddenly got hooked on the stories within the book (because every chapter in an Alcott novel has its own individual 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 last page lists what happens to every character - which is a bit sad, as Alcott's novels [...]

    • 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 poisoning from her time as a Civil War nurse, that the lights were really going out, the curtain about to fall.In this book Alcott continues to find a platform for her ideas, including women's suffrage, co-education, rehabilitation for criminals, and temperance, [...]

    • This was a great conclusion of the Little Women series by Louisa May Alcott. If you enjoyed Little Men, you will enjoy Jo's Boys as it tells what happens to the boys of Plumfield as they get older. Definitely check the whole Little Women series out as they are all a joy to read.

    • I just finished reading the entire series of the March family and their descendants. I homeschool and picked up Little Men for inspiration. I gleaned so many wonderful insights for educating young children, finding our personal missions and following your bliss. In reading the entire series, I get a vision of what I want our lives to look like as I raise my children and the kind of experiences I want them to have. It is easy to involve yourself in the lives of the people in these books because y [...]

    • I grew to love all the characters in Little Men, so one is bound to love this one just as much. There's plenty of laughter and fun in this book. The end bit has some emotional scenes with wandering Dan and I would have loved to see him happy. Ah, but that is life! A lovely read.

    • The last sentence of this book had me in tears: " And now having endeavored to suit every one by many weddings, few deaths, and as much prosperity as the eternal fitness of things will permit, let the music stop, the lights die out, and the curtain fall forever on the March family."Its sad to say goodbye to a family that I've come to know and love in this past year Jo has become somewhat of a mentor to me after reading Little Men and Jo's Boys and so, yes, I'm somewhat emotional that I've finish [...]

    • Este es un libro que leí exclusivamente en mis viajes de colectivo. Desde que leí Mujercitas que anduve a la cacería de buscar sus secuelas, por más malas que me dijeran que fuesen. Y si eran de la colección Robin Hood, mejor todavía. No es un libro malo. Sigue la línea de Mujercitas, es decir, el tono aniñado, bien femenino y con grandes moralejas del primer libro. Lo que no me gustó, personalmente, fue que se notaba que Alcott usó este libro para pasar factura a todos los cambios que [...]

    • I am sad to see the curtain close on the tales about the March family! It is a little slower-paced than Little Women, which is my hands-down favorite out of the series, but it was a thoroughly enjoyable read. The thing I love most about Louisa May Alcott's March family series (Little Women, Good Wives, Little Men and Jo's Boys) is the way she gently weaves her philosophies about childrearing, feminism, education and living a good life into her stories in such a gentle, non-preachy way. This will [...]

    • There's a certain sense of emptiness that only booklovers will know. Upon closing a dear book and saying goodbye to its variety of language and characters, it can often feel like some precious part of one's soul is left behind and lost forever. And here I am; with a bittersweet lump in my throat and a melancholic longing for something more."Jo's Boys" by Louisa May Alcott is different from the other books in this series. It is far more dramatic - even violent at times - in its plot, and is gener [...]

    • *opens book* Ah, I can’t wait to re-visit all the characters from Little Men.A few chapters later: It’s kind of boring, but all the boys are still awesome, especially Dan. But he has a beard. That’s weird. Oh, well, I’ll just ignore it.Later: Wow, this is really boring. Too much moralizing. Whole chapters of it. But at least the Josie-wanting-to-be-an-actress thing is interesting. I wish Alcott would focus more on Dan everyone else, though. And am I the only one who sees definite similar [...]

    • some quotes:p. 116 "Virtue, which means honor, honesty, courage, and all that makes character, is the red thread (British put a red thread in their ropes) that marks a good man wherever he is. Keep that always and everywhere, so that even if wrecked by misfortune, that sign shall still be found and recognized. No matter what happens to your body, keep your soul clean, your heart true to those who love, and do your duty to the end."p. 112 "It is the struggle with obstacles which does us good. You [...]

    • "…books are always good company if you have the right sort. Let me pick out some for you.' And Mrs. Jo made a bee-line to the well-laden shelves, which were the joy of her heart and the comfort of her life.”I DID IT! I really did it. I read a series within 4 days! I'm so proud of myself!! (view spoiler)[Aside from falling asleep after reading the first chapter this book was a pretty good read. I like all of the books tied into each other, well except for Good Wives. I just didn't like that b [...]

    • d the curtain fall for ever on the March family.Little Woman is my inspiration in reading books. I longed to read it when I was in nursery and actually read it in elementary. It was my first book and I'm glad to wait for 7-8 years to read this. I didn't read little men so I was gobsmacked reading the changes of Jo's boys. The transition of roles and generations left me in a daze but it was worth it. I really admire Mama Baer's advice and don't forget the playwrights and drama. It was raw and dif [...]

    • Gosh! I thought Little Women made me cry. This one was even more heartbreaking. Poor Dan. I need to reread these books.

    • I enjoyed this more than the previous book and I'll tell you why. It was bittersweet. Knowing that this was the last book in the trilogy brought forth nostalgia that I didn't know I had pertaining to this series. I might not have loved all the stories of what happened to the girls and their sons, and I might not have agreed with the decisions made, but there was a sense of realism in that. Little Women will always be a classic I will re-read once in a while to recapture that innocence we never s [...]

    • 10 tahun berlalu. Plumfield yg sederhana, kini telah berevolusi menjadi Universitas dan Bukit Parnassus yg penuh dengan keindahan seni serta kesetaraan hak pria dan wanita. Anak-anak Plumfield kini telah tumbuh dewasa, berusaha melebarkan & mengepakkan sayap selebar dan sejauh yg mereka mampu. Sementara bagi perempuan berumur yg keibuan & bijaksana seperti Mrs. Josephine Bhaer, tak ada yg lebih sulit & mengkhawatirkan daripada harus melihat para elang jantannya mulai beranjak meningg [...]

    • "Los astros se hallaban esparcidos por toda la tierra; pero estos seis muchachos y las cuatro chicas son mi esperanza, mi orgullo y mi alegría."3.5/5De los tres fue el que me menos me gustó, porque lo sentí un tanto distinto a los anteriores.Primero que nada, me gustó que vuelvan los personajes después de 10 años de Little Men, pero siento que el libro transcurre a medida que los chicos se van casando y se vuelve bastante repetitivo; además que se casaran con desconocidas me tiró un poco [...]

    • In all honesty, this is a dreary book. Imagine the epilogue to the Harry Potter Series, which most people agree is somewhat hamfisted and not up to par, if not blatant fan service. Now imagine if J.K. Rowling had written it into a full eighth book, rather than a single chapter. That is what we have here. As the third (or fourth, depending on how you care to look at it) and final installment in the chronicle of the March sisters and their families, this draws much too heavily on the less-compelli [...]

    • Obviously readers of the previous two books in their original publications were clamoring to find out what happened to the titular Little Men, and parts of Jo's Boys definitely feels like a concession to popular opinion. It's slower and more overtly moralizing than Little Men or Little Women (though both of those books have their fair share), but I have to say, I salute Louisa May for not giving in to expectations in every quarter. After having had to marry off Jo at the end of Little Women, Nau [...]

    • This was a good read mainly because of the previous books, especially "Little Women". It is interesting to take the narrator of "Little Women", where Alcott writes "So grouped, the curtain falls upon Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy. Whether it ever rises again, depends upon the reception given to the first act of the domestic drama", and compare it to the tired narrator of "Jo's Boys" ("It is a strong temptation to the weary historian to close the present tale with an earthquake which should engulf Plumfi [...]

    • Standing by the 5 stars. As I've said before, these people are too intimately wound up with my psyche to be rated objectively. There's some preaching but to my eye it's not as heavy-handed as in Little Women. There are lots of great female role-models (with respect to the times). All of the young women are working toward careers, with the exception of Daisy (that natural housewife!). The young men are supportive and for the most part, respectful. There are anachronisms aplenty, but there's also [...]

    • Vaikka en ole lukenutPlumfieldin poikiaaikaisemmin, minulle tuli nyt jotenkin turvallinen olo lukiessani. Oli ihanaa vihdoin jatkaa tähän sarjan viimeiseen osaan (en ymmärrä miksi ihmeessä odotin vuoden ennen kuin luin tämän??). VaikkaPlumfieldin pojaton surullinen, se on myös lohdullinen. Pidin siitä, kuinka ajan murros näkyi tässä, sillä myös tytöt pääsivät opiskelemaan Plumfieldin jatko-opistoon (vaikka heitä ei juuri muualle vielä tuolloin hyväksyttykkään). Muutenkin t [...]

    • Una bella e dolce conclusione per la famiglia March anche se non paragonabile ai due primi libri. Ho adorato Nat e Dan e non posso credere che Dan *Spoiler* sia rimasto solo :-( una fine che non mi sarei affatto aspettata per lui perché anche se lui era un'anima "nera" avrebbe solo tratto vantaggio da Bess e lei da lui. Il troppo moralismo di questo libro è l'unica cosa che non posso accettare. Lui meritava come gli altri l'amore perché si è riscattato o cercato di farlo in entrambi i libri. [...]

    • An unforgettable classic; how delighted I was to discover that there were actually sequels to Little Women, although my childhood library did not hold every one. Ah, the magic of those early reading favourites, the escape!

    • This was a delightful read. Very simple, easy to put down and pick up again, and true to the style of Louisa May Alcott, leaves little nuggets of wisdom all along the way. It's fairly short, and a good supplement to read while you're reading something depressing yet beautiful, like a Hardy, to lift your spirits when his story gets too sad. Quotable Quotes"The three sisters stood a moment looking up at the beloved picture with eyes full of tender reverence and the longing that never left them; fo [...]
