You need to read this! Little Men keeps you engaged and makes you feel like you are in the book with all the characters. This book has all the emotions which makes it even more entertaining to read. If you haven't read this book already I would recommend it to you, and if you have try reading the other books in the series.

It's really great to continue reading the story of Jo and Professor Bhaer in this book. Even though it focuses on the boys they teach and take care of, it's easy to see their characters shine through. The boys (and girls) get in a lot of trouble, but ultimately try and fix their mistakes and learn to be moral people. One thing that the afterword noted which I found interesting is that there is no villain in this book, even though it is a children's book (the writer compared it to Harry Potter, LOTR and others where there is a prominent villain). Alcott shows that the evil is inside of people when they choose to act on it, rather than on good. Jo and Professor Bhaer teach this to the children and try to show them that acting good is always better in the end. It's a good moral book for children, teenagers, and adults alike.

Such a sweet and timeless book. The lessons and setting are a wonderful, relaxing experience.

After reading Louisa M. Alcott's biography in the 'Childhood of Famous Americans' series I couldn't resist reading this, no matter how much I usually hate reading old-fashioned stories. This is the best book I've ever read, old-fashioned or not, I loved it.
