Little Women

A very delightful and charming book! Pride and Prejudice lovers this should be your next read! Written by Louisa May Alcott in 1867, the book still remains an American favourite even today. The story is about the March sisters, Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy and their coming of age. I can go on forever about this book but I don't want to spoil it for anybody who plans to read it.

After being completely in love with the book, I decided to watch the Little Women 1949 version (with Elizebeth Taylor) on TCM. The movie wasn't atall as charming as the book. The order of the scenes in the movie were also messed up and it also left out some very important details of the book. However, it was a great movie to watch if you are not particular about the details. I still have to get my hands on Little Women 1994 version with Winnona Ryder, Christian Bale and Kristen Dunst.

About moi

I am loud and obnoxious around those who know me. My friends call me "dangerously" positive as I am usually not able to see the "negative" side of things. Ever. I like to laugh and live life to the fullest and don't understand people who can't. I have lived all over the world. My Pakistani background, my American accent, my Irish hospitality and my Iranian appetite all blend pretty well to shape who I am. I cant help but notice that how similar I am to everybody else, yet how absolutely SuiGeneris.
