あらすじ・解説

Hollywood icon Laura Dern breathes new life into Louisa May Alcott’s classic coming-of-age tale that follows the lives of four sisters against a backdrop of the American Civil War. This autobiographical novel takes place in and around the girls’ New England home. 

This great American novel demonstrates Alcott's extraordinary talent at portraying the joys and struggles of family life in an unforgettable way. Generations of people - young and old, male and female - have fallen in love with the March sisters. This classic of young adult fiction transcends genre, gender, and class with its examination of personal quests, societal restrictions, family ties, and the end of innocence.

This new audio original dramatisation of Little Women stars a full cast led by two-time Academy Award-nominee, four-time Golden Globe-winner, and Emmy winner Laura Dern (Little Women, Big Little Lies, Jurassic Park), along with veteran narrators Suzanne Toren, Lauren Fortgang, Allison Hiroto, Emily Bauer, and Carly Robins.

Enjoyable

I had never read Little Women (apart from the Children's version when I was younger) and wanted to read it before the newest movie. I specifically waited for this new Audible Original version because I love Laura Dern and was super excited for it. It is what it is - an abridged dramatization of the book. I was not aware of this, but this did not affect my rating. I rated it based on what it is. That being said, although quite enjoyable, I personally would have preferred to listen to the full novel. I do wish they had made this more clear to the listener, though I may have still chosen to listen to this version because, Laura Dern. Can she just read the whole thing next time? I found the beginning difficult to differentiate the characters and their voices. The dialogue is without "said Amy" or "said Jo". As the stories begin to separate and each sister has their own path/narrative, it is not an issue. I loved Jo, Marmee and Laurie's voices the best. I found some of the voices to be a tad overdone, but it did not distract from my enjoyment. In the beginning I found the extra sounds - like foot steps, horses or a cackling fire interesting, but they lose their appeal by the end. They just don't add to the story in an effective way that makes you feel like you are part of that world. In the end, I would think twice about listening to another "dramatization", though I think the idea overall has potential. I can see why however, someone who may have read the full novel already, might appreciate this as a new way to experience a beloved tale; but I don’t have that frame of reference.

Very poor execution of this classic tale

Instead of allowing the cast to tell the story naturally through their performance, the action was constantly interrupted by a narrator adding snippets of backstory - sometimes right in the middle of active dialogue! All of this backstory could have easily been woven into the story and told through the cast performance. It was too distracting to continue listening. Also, the actors cast for the girls were a bit too similar in sound/portrayal and I struggled to differentiate who was speaking in scenes with the 4 of them. I could have possibly overlooked the highly censored (historical and faith-based content removed/altered to make the story more in sync with our current "PC" world) and abridged aspects (though I would always prefer a true to the original portrayal when given the choice!), however the constant switch in POV was too jarring to allow myself to get lost in the story, or enjoy it on any level. Overall a very disappointing mess of a beloved classic. Be sure to take the time to listen to the full sample offered to see if this is something you would enjoy - which I often don't because I know I can return books I don't enjoy - to save yourself a bit of frustration and a lot of wasted time spent hoping it might get better further in. It doesn't.

Ew

I could not get past the second chapter. I love this story, but the saccharine voices of the characters contrasts too much with Dern’s dry narration. It bothers me that they did not stick to the original manuscript. This is a dramatization, not an audiobook.

Censored

This version is not just abridged, it is censored. i didn't catch it until I was nearly through, but by trying to find my place in my kindle book, I realized one of the most moving scenes of the whole book, when Beth died, was edited of anything meaningful about the Lord or heaven. Now I've been paying attention and any mention of God is removed. No wonder I thought the book was just "okay." I'm going to have to start over again with an actual version of the book.

Bangin', Clangin' and Emotin'

Note to self: Do not EVER get another "dramatized" audio book. Laura Dern of course is superb as a narrator. But the music, sound effects, dramatization? The Book: "She wept." The Dramatization: "Bwahahahahahah...snort...bwahahaha...Bwa! Ha! Bwahahahahahahahahahah." Good god just get to the story will you? Other than that, classic-novel-breaking-gender-roles etc. etc.

Excellent!

I finally fell in love with the March sisters, and I will be forever grateful. I never read Little Women as a kid, just because the book seemed big and daunting to young me. I am kind of glad it took me until now to read it, because it's exactly what I needed at this time in my life. I am in my twenties and soon to graduate college. I have a lot of big life decisions quickly approaching, and I felt comforted hearing about the March sisters having to carve out their own life paths. Each sister imparts their own wisdom in some way. Meg teaches us how to enjoy the little things. Jo teaches us to nurture our passions. Beth teaches us how to love honestly and deeply. Amy teaches us about the beauty of change. I know Louisa May Alcott considered her own work "moral pap for the young", but I thought it was full of so many lessons that apply to people's lives today. The narration was fantastic too! Laura Dern and the rest of the cast performed the lovable characters with charm and bubbly energy.

AMAZING but I wish it were closer to source book

Like I said in the headline, this edition of Little Women is so beautifully done and so fun to listen to; of course Laura Dern sold it to me and then killed it, her narration is gorgeous. I'll be honest, I wish she'd just narrated the whole thing. The actors for everyone sounded SO alike and their childhood voices were so fake sounding... Laurie sounds sooooo old it constantly took me out of the story haha. But I think it's perfect to listen to if you loved the movie or loved the book, just keep in mind it cuts out a lot from the book too.

Enjoyable Listen

I have seen a few not-so-great reviews about this audiodrama. Some hated the voice cast, while others were bothered that it's an abridged dramatization rather than the novel verbatim.  I do not have those complaints.  I enjoyed the voice work and the dramatization.  This was a wonderful story and I loved listening to it.  I feel like I got the full story even though it was a dramatization. And the cast brought the characters to life for me.

Difficult to distinguish voices

I found it very difficult to listen to as they do not introduce the different voices, and it is therefore difficult to know who is speaking. The girls’ voices sound very similar.

This is not Little Women

There is so much of the detail and the nuance of the book missing! I can only imagine Louisa May would be embarrassed to see her work stripped of so much of the skill and effort she had put into it.

Loved this version!

Really enjoyed listening to this version, got used to all the voices quickly most of the time it was obvious who was speaking. Really brought the book to life would recommend to any fans of the book or films, great performances and a wonderful story that stands the test of time.

Love, love, love!

An extremely enjoyable and beautifully performed classic. The cast really brought this story to life, I thoroughly adored their performance and I would 100% recommend to anyone wanting to fall in love with a classic novel. It most certainly is a fine work of art created by not only the author but each and every cast/production member. A true credit to all who worked on it.

Why does everyone love this book so much?

This is my mums favourite book, so I was excited to read it when I was given it at age 12. Unfortunately, I could barely get past the first chapter without getting bored. I didn't feel a connection to the characters at all, and just got frustrated with their way of whining. With the release of the new film rewritten by Greta Gerwig, I decided to give the book another chance and listen to it via audible. What a mistake that was. These women are insufferable. Jo is a character that has influenced so many influential women in my life, but all I wanted her to do was shut up. She was selfish, annoying, and the way they related everything back to being 'good little pilgrims' was just so incredibly boring. The only thing she actually gets herself worked up about is listening to two strangers talk about god??? The narrator did a good job but I think listening to the book just made it much more obvious how awful the writing was. it's basically Christianity propaganda. I don't even want to watch the film any more.

I wish it matched the book

I loved it I was great but I got it so that if I wasn’t reading the book I could at least listen to this but there was one point where a whole chapter was different than what was in the book.
