My dad once said to me, "You give a lot of books three stars." I do.
This book just feels so derivative. I know it's because Little Women was heavily influenced by Alcott's real life and this is a fictional account of Alcott's real life but knowing that doesn't make me enjoy the book any more.
I'm not a huge Alcott fan to begin with. My fondest memory of anything Alcott related is watching Little Women at my grandparents in the summer. Maybe if I were a bigger fan I'd like this book more?
