This week’s choice for My Favorite Reads hosted by Alyce At Home With Books is Louisa May Alcott’s Good Wives .
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott has been read by almost all, but the same cannot be said about its sequel Good Wives. Though I like Little Women much more than this book , Good Wives being a sequel does a very good job of letting us know what happens to our favorite characters. The March girls have grown up and are moving in to the outside world and learning to lead life away from their parents protective surroundings. There are some surprises thrown in but the narrative is just like the first book. Sequels sometimes can spoil the taste for the original work but this book does complete justice. Actually after finishing this I even read off Little Men and Jo’s Boys which take the story forward and I have no regrets of doing that.
I think people who have read Little Women should read Good Wives..
