This final book in the Little Women series picks up 10 years on from Little Men. Jo's Boys are all venturing out into the world to take their adult roles. For some the rapscallion Dan there are more adventures and troubles to encounter. Several fall in love after successfully accomplishing their educational goals. It was a joy to revisit these characters. I smile to myself. No wonder I was such a romantic in my teenage years given this was my reading fodder just prior.
It portrays such wholesome young people and family life. Perhaps it was these women that made me choose to put children and family first in my life, although she does fly the feminist flag, heralding the importance of book education for young women. I find it surprising that these were written in 1860's and 1870's. A far cry from the experience of my own forbears I am sure. ( )

2019 observations:

This book seems less like a story and more like a series of enjoyable vignettes. Alcott pokes fun at authors and their fans, moralizes and lectures in between plots, and wraps things up nicely for most. Nat, who was an effective way to introduce Plumfield, has become a sissy, Franz doesn't show up much, Emil is fun (when he's there), Josie is flashy, Bess is too perfect, Stuffy and Dolly are weathercocks, Tommy is irrepressibly Tom (and, like Emil, doesn't figure much), Dan is predictably trouble, Laurie is admirable, and Teddy is absolutely delightful. Alice Heath, as admirable as she is, seems mostly like an afterthought. It seems as though Alcott largely means Nan and the other women to take the spotlight, but they are so varied and spread out that it becomes hard to follow. The literary references are many--making it even more difficult.

In spite of all this, I really enjoyed Alcott's views (probably more than most of the stories). It isn't a perfect book, but I did enjoy her little dig at women expecting to do this and this "until I marry." And I relished her strong voice for the vote.

Several times women were referred to as superfluous. I used to rankle quite a bit at that, but this read I remembered that we're talking post-civil war era about the hundreds of small towns, and larger ones, where companies and companies of soldiers were lost in battles and sickness. Certainly, the large amounts of single (widowed, never-married etc) women would have seemed overwhelming to the towns. Think of the poverty and the helplessness. Of course women would have wanted to vote and one must, and does, admire Nan and her ilk (and wonder what on earth, if anything, was going on in Daisy's mind).

Sadly, Meg and Daisy do not improve with age. I get the feeling that Louisa either a) didn't have a real-life person to base them on (the real "Meg" died relatively early in life) or b) didn't really find much to relate to in either of these characters.

It was interesting to me to view the switch in my experience with the characters. In Little Women I easily swallowed Meg's desire to have a nice home and children. But Daisy's lack of gumption, headaches, and inability to speak for herself left me rather bored with the character.

I still think that Jo March Bhaer is probably one of her best creations. Rose, in [b:Eight Cousins|14570|Eight Cousins (Eight Cousins, #1)|Louisa May Alcott|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1328864060i/14570._SY75_.jpg|2905864], and Polly in [b:An Old-Fashioned Girl|246546|An Old-Fashioned Girl|Louisa May Alcott|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1347469119i/246546._SY75_.jpg|3719102] have interesting stories, but their characters lack the vivacity and striking individuality that Jo has.

For me Little Women is by far the best book and they slowly go downhill. I still like this book better than most books but compared to the others it isn't as good. ( )

I just didn't care about this book the way I did about the first two. The professor is such a dull character to children, which doesn't help. Neither does the fact that Jo should've married Teddy, damnit.

"If anyone were to have told me what wonderful changes were to take place here in ten years, I wouldn't have believed it," said Mrs. Jo to Mrs. Meg, as they sat on the piazza at Plumfield one summer day, looking about them with faces full of pride and pleasure.
