Frå Goodreads: Follows the adventures of Jo March and her husband Professor Bhaer as they try to make their school for boys a happy, comfortable, and stimulating place.
Forfatter: Louisa May Alcott
Frå Goodreads: Better known for her novels Little Women and Little Men, Louisa May Alcott continued the story of her feisty protagonist Jo in this final novel chronicling the adventures and misadventures of the March family. Entertaining, surprising, and overall a joy to read, Jo's Boys is nevertheless shaded by a bittersweet tone, for with it Alcott brought her wonderful series to an end.
Beginning ten years after Little Men, Jo's Boys revisits Plumfield, the New England school still presided over by Jo and her husband, Professor Bhaer. Jo's boys -- including rebellious Dan, sailor Emil, and promising musicain Nat -- are grown; Jo herself remains at the center of this tale, holding her boys fast through shipwreck and storm, disappointment... and even murder.
Popular for more than a century, the series that began with Little Women continues to hold universal appeal with its powerful and affectionate depiction of family -- the safe haven where the prodigal can always return, adversity is never met alone, and our dreams of being cherished, no matter what our flaws, come true.
Eg trur eg sa til meg sjølv at eg trengte ikkje lese disse bøkene med ein gong, men nå er det gjort. Eg har faktisk aldri høyrt om disse bøkene før nå, og med min kjære Kindle så var det ein enkel sak å få dei lest. Idag veit eg ikkje om bøkene hadde overlevd det harde bokmarkedet, men for a little light reading er dei perfekt. Skjønne bøker om skolen til Jo March og Professor Bhaer, om guttane som kom dit, og korleis dei endte opp til slutt.
And now, having endeavoured to suit everyone by many weddings, few deaths, and as much prosperity as the eternal fitness of things will permit, let the music stop, the lights die out, and the curtain fall for ever on the March family.XOXO
