    1 thought on “A Double Life: Newly Discovered Thrillers of Louisa May Alcott”

    1. The three stars are for the final story of the five, which I quite liked. It's the one with the most good moments, and some surprisingly modern moments (great bit at the end!) and the most mature and feminist of the female protagonists. Unless you're a fast reader or a die-hard Alcott fan, you might want to skip the other stories in the collection. They were one star: boring, predictable, dated.

    2. Anyone who loved Little Women will want to read this book. It's a collection of five short stories Louisa May Alcott published under a pseudonym since they were a little too racy for her "Little Women" image. As you'd expect, classic author that she was, she penned some great short stories. My favorite is "Ariel: A Story By the Sea." Highly recommended.

    3. Madeleine Stern is a remarkable literary historian and researcher, discovering Louisa May Alcott's secret life and tracking down her writings. The stories themselves are a marvelous illustration of the times, and cause you to wonder where and how Alcott researched her sensational thrillers. Stern is an amazing woman and I loved reading her biography.

    4. Stories were just ok (old-fashioned thrillers and romances), but the fact that they were written by Louisa May Alcott and so different than what we know of her most famous works raised my rating. I did like the book as a whole.
