Summary

Saoirse Ronan’s Jo is an instant cult classic after her portrayal in the Academy award winning ‘Little Women’. I mean, who isn’t in love with everything Greta Gerwig touches? Well, much like finding out there’s an extra Harry Potter you haven’t read, the Little Women saga continues. Our following of Jo, literature’s favourite feminist rebel, concludes with ‘Jo’s Boys’.

Ten years after ‘Little Men’, Jo’s Boys are making their way in the world, and always returning back to their loving Jo and her husband, Professor Bhaer, at their school Plumfield. Led by our favourite girls, the boys must navigate struggles, love and find their place in the world. Drama, sailors, doctors, another fierce tomboy to fall for, and even murder, make this another classic by Alcott.

As always, women’s rights, modern thinking and so many questioning morals feature as we follow each character on their journey. What is quite sure is, you may come to catch glimpses of your favourite characters, but you’ll leave enamoured by new ones

Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888) discovered writing at an early age, where she often thought up stories about villains, ghosts, or damsels in distress. Driven by economic misfortunes, she worked several jobs but later chose writing as her sole purpose. She was a devout feminist and did not marry throughout her life. Her most famous works include the novel "Little Women", its sequel "Little Men", as well as "Good Wives" and "An Old-Fashioned Girl". Her masterpiece "Little Women" was made into a highly successful 2019 movie starring Saoirse Ronan and Timothée Chalamet.
