“i was just thinking about this book and wanted write a review and just say: this book destroyed the very essence of my soul. louisa may alcott you are a B*TCH”
“Read for Librivox It's a weird thing to rate this because in many ways its place as a piece of literary history places it outside the realms of mere pleasure reading or even study. It's not Alcott's most accomplished work - and new writers may be encouraged to learn that even those authors of what we now consider classics did write a few wobbly books before they hit their stride. That said there is a piquant charm to this story. It holds many of Alcott's later themes - duty, family, the pursuit of excellence in oneself as far as one's powers will stretch, forgiveness and finding one's place in the world. In Sylvia there is the faint shadow of Alcott's beloved future character, Jo March. It also questions the recourse available to women unhappy in marriage during Victorian era America. Those who dispise love triangles might be pleasantly surprised by the outcome. There is a very laudable and healthy message regarding unselfish friendship and acceptance in here too. That said, I found the often overly Christian leanings and method of delivery rather stuck in my craw. I acknowledge that this is my issue and a marker of the book being of its time. Certainly other 19th C novels have had just such a Christian bent and not irritated me, so it must be me. One for Alcott enthusiasts or those wanting to look at the progression of feminism through the 1800s.”
