I wish I had read this when I was younger. It's a bit sanitized for my adult mind. Nevertheless, as a long-time fan of Little Women and an admirer of Louisa May Alcott, it was a pleasure to read. I enjoyed seeing which parts of one of my favorite books stemmed from real life. I also learned some interesting facts about Ms. Alcott which only served to increase my admiration.

If you have a lover of Little Women in your home, this would be a great book for them. Especially if you're trying to encourage a little reader to branch out into non-fiction. ( )

Apparently this biography won a Newbery medal, so perhaps I'm a bit of a philistine.. but I didn't find this particularly engaging. I am very interested in the life of Louisa M Alcott, and did find it interesting to see how it was mirrored, in many ways, by her best-known novel for girls, 'Little Women'. But although the research was evidently extensive, in a pre-internet era, and her lifeline and circumstances portrayed thoroughly, I found it dry - too full of description and facts, with little to engage my interest.

Perhaps there was too little source material, or perhaps the author simply wanted to outline Alcott's life in this way; evidently it was considered an excellent work by those who award medals. But despite it being a relatively easy read, I found it hard going in places, and difficult to concentrate. I rapidly lost track of all the many locations where the family lived, and most of the family friends, too.

Still, worth perusing for anyone interested in this writer. ( )

[Invincible Louisa] is a very dry and unexciting book. Cornelia Meigs could have described the people better, and included more quotes from Louisa's life. I like how she tells little stories here and there though. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this book to young readers. ( )
