Author: Louisa May Alcott
Narrator: Andrea Emmes
Length: 17h 36m
This was actually my first experience with Little Women, be it reading or listening, so I was pleased to be introduced to this beloved book. There were times when the narration really had to work to keep my attention, but then again I am usually doing something else while listening to an audiobook, and can easily have my attention pulled from what I’m listening to. I think this is because so many years of listening to music in the background just to have some noise.
This book really pulls the reader into a different time, and Andrea Emmes narration helps to really transport the reader to the world of Little Women. I give this audiobook 4/5 stars.
