Character Connection: Little Women

Its Thursday, and time for another Character Connection hosted by Jen at The Introverted Reader.

I chose the book Little Women by Louisa May Alcott, because I've kind of grown up with the characters, and know how I can relate to each of them. Yes, each of them :) Ok, ok, except Amy- I really don't like her that much. But more on that another time.

Margeret (Meg) March- I connect to Meg in that I hope to get married and have my own home one day. I am also like her in that I am the oldest in my family, try to be responsible, and keep the younger ones in check ;) I also am like Meg in that I don't talk much, but I am not necessarily as quiet as Beth is.
Josephine (Jo) March- I think many writer's sympathize with Jo, and many people that have a short temper ;). I have always enjoyed reading how Jo becomes a woman in the book, but still gets into scrapes.
Elizabeth (Beth) March- I connect to Beth because she is gentle and quiet, and that's usually the words people use to describe me (I don't think they're very accurate ;). I also understand how Beth likes to stay home and gets nervous about being in public and all. I fully sympathize with that. She also likes to take things slower.

Join in! You can name character's from one book, one character, or like Jen did this week, a character you love to hate. Make sure you enter in the linky Jen's put up on her blog!


  1. I love this book! Such a great analysis of the girls, even of Amy who was a complete snob. Great connection :)

  2. Aww this is great! your so good at this meme.

  3. i love that you chose three characters! it's so difficult to name only one sister from the Marches, they are all interesting in their own ways.

  4. I love little Women! :) It was my favorite book when I was younger. I still like it, but books like Pride and Prejudice has taken its place among the number one favorites.

  5. I hate to admit it, but I tried reading Little Women when I was little and I thought it was boring. =/ I thought the same thing about Anne of Green Gables, which became one of my favorite books later on though. I just picked up Little Women at a library book sale to give it another try all these years later. So many people love it, surely now that I'm older I'll see what everyone else sees.

    I like how you related to an aspect of each of those three characters!

  6. Little Women is one of my all time favorite books! I love Amy, for the same reason that I love Marianne from Sense & Sensibility: She's passionate and free and spirited. I also think that she grows the most out of all of the sisters.

    Thanks for writing this, it was great.

  7. It's been a long time since I read this book, but can remember I loved it. I really should reread it, or maybe even pick up 'Little Women and Werewolves' as that one is probably easier to find at the moment


I appreciate your presence. Feel free to share your opinions and perspectives in good spirit! :)
