I don't know what I could say about this that other have not said. Yes, the girls are superbly "goody-goody", and though they have flaws, they improve on them. There's no real antagonist, it's a bit dated regarding women's roles (well, in once sense; one could argue that actually it reveals Alcott's feminism quite strongly too)... but you know what? It was very pleasant to read. Really, it practically puts a smile on your face :]
