I received this audiobook from Audio Book Worm for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are entirely my own.
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott, set in the 19th century follows the lives of four sisters, Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy March as they live, learn, love, and grow as young pilgrims and blossom into fine little women.
Based on the author’s childhood, Little Women is one of the most beloved stories in American literature. It continues to touch listeners both young and old. Alcott takes you on a prolific journey which will make your heart swell, your soul laugh, and your heart ache as we experience the lives of the March sisters as they endure their lessons, scrapes, castles in the air, their romances, and more.
Because I have already reviewed the book Little Women, this review is specifically for the audiobook version narrated by Andrea Emmes, if you are seeking a review of the book itself, please visit this review. Thanks 🙂
Andrea Emmes has the prefect tone of voice to narrate Little Women, with her tone being soft, gentle and captivating. She does very well at giving the girls a distinction between voices so the listener can guess accurately who is speaking before she says it.
I did find the flow of her words to be a bit choppy, especially when she read dialogue containing “he said” or “she said”, it just seemed that she would add these with too much delay in the sentence.
Overall, I enjoyed getting to listen to Little Women and I give this audiobook 4 stars out of 5 and do recommend it 🙂
