Little Women: A Confession

May 9, 2018

I have never read Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women.  Each time I have attempted to read or watch the movie, any version I can’t pay attention more than a few minutes.  It has absolutely no appeal to me.  I can’t even get through the plot summary to attempt an explanation as to why I can’t bother.

The constant hype makes it even more off-putting.

When I tell someone that I love Literature, that I studied it in college, and they bring up Little Women my eyes glaze over like a Mormon wife, and I think of hot coffee and Bailey’s Irish Crème and wonder if Pisces are really prone to becoming drunks if they drink.

    Hah! It was given to me to read when I was a little girl, and told that it was about girls. The only good part of it was Jo, who was a marriage-resister.

    Except for how she marries a guy two or three times her age! Maybe that was in the next book. Ugh. You ain’t missing nothin’ Kitty.
