Perfectly inhabiting spoiled Amy, sensible Meg, noble Beth, and forthright Jo, narrator Kate Reading interprets Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel with a blend of seriousness and humor. The story of four Massachusetts sisters and their beloved mother awaiting their father’s return from the Civil War, Alcott’s book about the real and imagined dramas of childhood has been popular since its publication in 1868. The style is more formal and the sentences longer than in many modern children’s books, but Reading offers a clear and accessible narration that makes listening easy. And the voices chosen for the major male and female characters help us empathize with everyone, even silly Amy when she offers to cut off her golden curls. A.C.S.
