If you wish to start reading classics, but find their size and language too intimidating, this is a good book to start your journey.
I really like this book due to the characterization of one character, Jo. She is different. She does not wish to shackle herself with all the things the girls of her generation were made to be boxed in. She wishes to become a writer and spends her time directing plays for her sisters.
Along with that, this is an excellent books on what happens to families who are struck in the countries that are at long wars. The poverty, the issues that come to the fore are really well handled.
One does take time to get in touch with all the characters, but at the end of the book certain things happen where you actually realize you do care.
On the whole, this is an easy classic that many would really like, I rate this book a 4 out of 4.
