    Another selection I only read because my good friend Stacey asked me to for her podcast, Got Lit Radio Holy crap, I m glad I had someone to vent to when I was finished with it.To Lynn Messina s credit, she s a good writer The footnotes on vampire history books and her sense of storytelling are as imaginative as the confines allowed I blame society and book publishers craving peddling a genre to the coffin bed and back than her I love the Alcott classic and was completely annoyed by the audiobook reader, but neither contributed to the fact that this was just incredibly boring Where Pride and Prejudice and Zombies had acres of room for the mashup, Little Women seems airtight in comparison Jo March the female antagonist most strong headed, bookish girls grow up adoring fades under the weight of her revamped storyline Her sisters come off even blander The intimate feeling one normally finds in the March household is entirely missing All the same people die and marry, but unlike in the original, I simply didn t care I felt like I didn t know any of them Also, don t even get me started on their humanitarian vampirism Thank you for nothing, Twilight.Blatant in Little Vampire Women was the feeling that these mashup novels are an attempt to capitalize on the supernatural obsession in today s culture, yet taking a public domain classic and splicing it with blood and monsters seemingly fails to entertain fans of either genre It s like putting bacon in your Earl Grey because awesome awesome double awesome Only it doesn t It equals soggy hog and salty tea No one wins.

    Where the fuck did I put this book

    I am always amazed when an author have to cut and paste an original work that belongs to another writer, you see much of this with Jane Austin redo s and now I guess with Louisa Alcott it is plain to me that readers cannot get enough of her and I certainly understand why she was brilliant and wonderful all in one breath, but I have to say this book is just another book from a writer trying to capitalize on an idea they didn t create I would not recommend this book

    I wanted so badly to like this book But I went into it expecting something that it did not deliver Had I dropped expectations I would have enjoyed it so much However, when I picked this up to read, I was expecting the Little Women story with a few vampires thrown in I was not given this I was given a story about the March sisters that LOO SLY followed the Lousia May Alcott story And I m using the word loosely as a generous description This story was all over the place Characters were changed so drastically that I barely recognized them, and the whole flow of the story was butchered If you re expecting Little Women, don t pick this up

    You know for the bad rap that the mashup books tend to get, I actually enjoyed this YA one Though the story is stagnant in some places, overall the vampire aspect of the book does not read like a re do it reads as if this was the way the story was always suppose to be Certainly recommend for a read through whether you ve read the original story or ll gain a new perspective on a classic novel and still have some fangish fun along the way Happy reading

    This book had all the elements of the worst vampire movies The author didn t know Alcott very well, but she also didn t know vampires.
