On reading Little Women

This week I read Part 1 (“Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy”) of Little Women, by Louisa May Alcott.

I mistakenly thought I’d read it before (it might have been the second part), so the seriousness and preachiness of the opening surprised me. Once I got past that, the book was quite engaging.

The moral points were actually a big part of that. A few of them felt very relevant to my situation, which I hadn’t expected. Others reminded me just how much has changed in the past 146 years.

Even those were interesting, though, especially the way Jo conforms to a culture she personally disagrees with.

I’m a bit ashamed that that surprised me, but it will definitely inform how I handle things in Conkers.
