Editorial Reviews

“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…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.” AudioFile
