    The sweet playful March sisters have grown up Meg has married and is now a mother Amy travels to Europe to refine her agreeable upbringing Jo earns her living writing disposable best sellers even if the novel she had been working on is dismissed by the editors again and again And Beth keeps struggling with her ill health There is not a single chapter where something of interest is brought to the reader’s attention and as the novel progresses the characters bloom into fragrant colorful flowers developing all their potential in the face of adversity unreuited love jealousy irremediable loss or failed expectationsAlcott’s prose can be as soothing as a lullaby or as scathing as a cautionary tale and her greatest achievement is that the reader perceives it as both without a hint of conflicting style in the narrative Action and characters go hand in hand surfing the rough tides of life allowing them space to adjust fight or even surrender when it’s necessary to do so portraying situations that invite the reader to reflectionThe kind of wisdom that Alcott displays in the follow up novel to her famous “Little Women” is rare because of its graceful tone but it shouldn’t be disregarded as outdated womanly insight there is much to learn from the March sisters and much from Alcott’s patient but relentless understanding of the human soul

    If Little Women created my heart Good Wives tore it apartThis book stole away a whole lot of the beautiful charm that Little Women had for me I simply couldn't bear with Jo's refusal to marry Teddy because that's what I expected from them and a part of what I adored them for I've always believed that love is friendship and I hoped their heart warming story from when they were children would have the future of a beautiful love I'd be happier if Teddy hadn't ever fallen in love with Jo and if he hadn't married Amy I never really liked AmyI'm trying to be happy for Jo but I never imagined she would marry an old guy or give up her writing I just can't forgive her she broke my heartLittle Women taught me that life is beautiful Good Wives taught me that dreams don't come true I don't care that the March sisters supposedly have a happy ending They proved something I don't want to believe in wonderful children became dull adultsI wish I hadn't read it in the first place

    Spoilers up ahead Though I advice you to read them so maybe they can convince you to never read good wivesI'm so happy this book is over because this little book gave me so much heartaches headaches and agony I couldn't bear to read it than a chapter at a time and it took ages to finishThough it wasn't my first time reading this book It still struck me as much as the first timeI remember when I was 11 12 I loved little women with all my heart though not a favorite book It still had a especial place in my bookcaseI remember finishing it and dreaming of Joe's future as a successful writer and her happy home with Laurie full of music and writingThen I read this book and well you can not begin to imagine how disappointed and depressed I wasand now after about 4 5 years I read it again this time in English and if not i'm still as disappointed as I was thenMy brain can understand that a lot of concepts in this book are related to the society of the time but my heart certainly can't It is truly hard to see sweet Meg and strong Jo give up their castles and dreams to go and be good little wives to poor old menThe entire talks about how women should apologize first in fights take care of children and husband and never complain is just terrible and no matter how much you tell yourself hello this book wasn't published yesterday you can't help but be angry and upsetThen as childish as it seems and probably is Jo and Laurie not ending up together is like a big bucket of cold water dumped right on your head Even worse Laurie marrying Amy after Jo rejected him was so forced and terrible I wanted to smash my ipad These were actually Laurie's thoughts If you can't have one sister you should get the other and live happily Amy ls like a part of Jo She is the nearest thing i have to her After Jo she is the only women who can make me happy Yeah that's really romantic Imagine this proposal Your sister rejected me but between all the other women in the word I chose you because you remind me of her and I'm sure you can make me happy just not as happy so let's spend the rest of our lives together? WOW isn't that just dreamy?So I really really beg of you If you loved little woman DO NOT read this because it will forever ruin the happy image of four strong sisters you probably have in mind It will be one of those dreams gone with the wind

    4 “I'm happy as I am and love my liberty too well to be in a hurry to give it up for any mortal man”It was great to see how each March sister grew up transformed and learned in their young adultadult years An important point of this novel was the economic situation for women and the time and how this was usually the basis for many decisionsIt might be controversial but I loved Amy in this one She was the most pragmatic and logical she understood that to look after her family she would need to marry someone rich She is passionate for art and learning She grows to learn not to just marry for money but that other factors are important Meg is learning to be a mother and be with someone considered a poor man despite her friends marrying rich and being able to afford things she must learn to be happy and content in the situation she is in Jo is just as wild as in the first book however we are witness to see her solitude and loneliness creep into a depression which then changes her overall wild character to someone mature and considerate of othersOverall it was great to see how the March girls turned out I am looking forward to watching the newest adaptation as it follows what Louisa May Alcott would've wanted instead of what her publishers said she should write

    OMG How could Louisa May Alcott do this? How could she ruin Jo like this? Okay so Good Wives is a lot like Little Women We find out how the girls change as they grow up unfortunately the change is not for the best Beth dies Meg becomes a mom Amy grows up to be the beloved of everyone and Jo the wild lively Jo is turned into a model of domestication and marries a freaking forty year old manThis is unfair Why did the author do this to Jo? I always thought Jo should marry Laurie and it would've all worked out if the selfish stupid annoying Amy hadn't gotten in the way Honestly Amy gets everthing She grows up to be pretty charmming and graceful She gets to go to Europe then marries sorry steals Laurie and becomes rich as well Okay so if Miss Alcott made Amy marry Laurie Fine why couldn't she let Jo remain an independent woman? That would have worked pretty well

    This book took all that was good about Little Women and crushed it grinding the sharp pieces of my despair right in my face It's so bad I can't pick up Little Women without remembering this book and knowing that everything I read is a filthy lie and that all happiness shall soon cease to existI want to purge my memory of Good Wives but I can't I wish I'd never read it If I had a time machine I'd go back in time and slap this book out of my own twelve year old hands And once that was done I'd go even further back in time just to be absolutely sure and make sure Louisa May Alcott never even had the chance to write it in the first place

    • 15 stars •rounded down because now I have beef with Louisa May Alcott 😡 NOTE This review is solely based on part 2 of Little Women My copy of the these books divide it Here is my review of the first partLittle Women Warning very negative review ahead written by a very bitter and dissatisfied person Sorry in advance if I don't get across my points as well as I intend I have a lot to say and not a clear idea on how to say it And lots of spoilers tooOof okay I don't know where to start But I guess I should tell you the obvious I hated this book I wholeheartedly wish I was Jared 19 right now It really had potential to be a new favorite as I adored part 1which I will refer to many times in this review Especially for a classic as I always have problems with older writing The writing is the only reason I added that extra5 along with the occasional warm feeling I felt reading this Here all are the reasons I so thoroughly despised this• the lessons I thought the lessons of family and relationships were sweet and as someone with siblings uite refreshing I don't read much about family But some of the new lessons it is preaching are overally pretentious and annoying Especially in the romance and marriage part You would think that I should have taken the fact that this book was called Good Wives as a hint that this was going to include preachy and unbearable agendas of the 1800s• Margaret Meg Wow She really became just a background character There was one part that especially irked me which was when Meg and John were a bit disconnected because they were leading sperate lives With John always at work or at the neighbors discussing politics and Meg taking care of the house and the twins When Meg expresses to her mother how she felt neglected Mrs March spins it as if Meg was perhaps the one neglecting him Because she is spending all her time taking care of her kids That's not how it works Meg is overburdened by the task of this and I'm sure Mr Brooke could insist upon helping if he wanted Then they would have time together John seems great don't get me wrong he perfectly suits sensible and kind Meg but this part made me mad It's not Meg's job to make sure he doesn't fell left out I'm not a mother and much too young to be able to slightly fathom the challenge but from what I observe from my family and other relativesall the difficulties of doing so shouldn't be put upon one parent• Jo I love Jo She is amazing Undoubtedly But her ending was pretty unsatisfactory What happened to her writing? Did she just kinda give up after Beth She now just decided to run a boarding school for boys and that was not her original and admirable goalAlso her marriage to Mr Bhaer who seems so nice but in my opinion Jo should have ended up single If not with Laurie than an independent women There is nothing wrong with that It would have fit her character well• Beth Okay can we just come to an agreement that Beth dying was absolutely unnecessary and annoying? Sweet Beth who had nothing to anyone deserved better In fact I don't even remember what she died of? Is that badI don't know •Amy I don't like Amy She rude and uptight She devoted her whole life to marrying rich She was wholeheartedly ready to marry Fred because of how rich he was the only thing that stopped her was Laurie Because she loved Laurie And happend to be also filthy rich The man who she by the way calls my Lord which is so funny to me because why I also don't like how we just never find out what her art skills lead to Did she also like Jo kinda of give up her passion? Or did I miss this part as I was literally skimming the last uarter of this book out of boredom a short intermission to show you some art I found I've been I adding it to my status updates but in case you haven't seen them CreditCredit continued• Laurie I said this before was let me say it againWhere did his love for Amy come from It felt so unnatural and forced Almost like he felt as if Amy could be the only one to fill the whole that Jo left because of their relation He consoled himself for the seeming disloyalty by the thought that Jo's sister was almost the same as Jo herself and the conviction that it would be impossible to love any other women but Amy so soon and so well Laurie has always had a friendship type relationship with Jo and a sibling bond with Amy Friends to lovers as a trope is an acceptable one Do you know what trope isn't? Siblings to loversHow odd and spontaneous this relationship felt• it was boring I didn't find myself attached to the story or the events as I did with the first half I skimmed a lot of it Especially those letters and poemssongs This was the minor aspect I didn't like in part 1 but it is really pushing it in this book• petting what the hell does that mean? Laurie always talks about being pet or asking for Jo to pet himand Jo asked Beth to pet him when she was awaylike a dog I'm confused This is weird and I am scared overall thoughts I'm sad dissatisfied and frankly kind of disappointed I came into this so hopeful that I would love it but didn't I was let down Perhaps I will pretend that part 1 was a standalone I don't know that I will continue with the series too which sucks because I bought the entire box set for really cheap and now it's probably gonna gather dust in my bookshelves I do realize that a lot of people probably love this and I totally see where they may from so if you do these are just my personal experiences and I am jealous that you had better time with it than meEnd of review

    I love this book I mean the fact that I've read it five times now does say something about how I much I love it

  10. Melindam Melindam says:

    Well strictly speaking this book is part of Little Women so I should not treat this as a different bookWhat I would add to my review of Little Women is that as the girls are growing up the horizon is broadening or in some of their cases shrinking so we see of the outside world and are offered a bigger chunk of society around them if not by much This and also the character development makes it interesting and while still occasionally didactic it advocates valid true values nevertheless that are very relatable
