    March took me by my idealistic hands and thrust me completely into the Civil War where I experienced it in ways I had not before It was easy for me to become invested in this story because it is based on the mysterious Mr March from Little Women the husband of Marmee, and the father of Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy.With this book Geraldine Brooks wrote an important story In her Afterword, she describes how the characters in L

    It s not that I don t like any historical fiction, I just think that it s a really hard thing to do right, without simplifying everything Nah, I really just hate historical fiction And I think that March is a perfect example of historical fiction gone wrong 1 I hate it in historical fiction when the author seems to cling to one or two details in history and repeat them over and over again In this book, the author seems i

    I wanted desperately to like this book And I sort of did Little Women is one of my wife s favs, and I m a sucker for Civil War novels all five billion of em But this book, though elegantly written, struck me as too schmaltzy and too overly preachy to enjoy It was also a wee bit predictable as a Civ War novel Brooks made sure to hit the Twelve Points of the True CW Novel 1 interracial romance, 2 old urbane southern woman wi

    Ok, to be honest I couldn t finish it I ve completely lost faith in the Pulitzer Prize for fiction It s becoming like a Grammy award for pop music see Mariah Carey and Celine Dion This book is pretentious and short sighted from page one Come on, a vegetarian, Unitarian, abolitionist, transcendentalist, book lover from the North is just one HUGE cliche that, frankly, probably did not exist during the Civil War I know that Louis

    I have wanted to read this book for years Now that I have, I m left with the wish that I d stayed clear.It s not that this is a terrible book There are parts to this story I really enjoyed, and it served as a great reminder of how powerful Civil War historical fiction can be But the characters Other than Grace, I would say no thank you.Now, Little Women is one of my all time favorite books That proved to be part of the problem I

    MARCH is the story of a once wealthy man with strong abolitionist convictions who leaves his wife and children behind to minister to union troops hoping to free and educate slaves.Set during the Civil War, MARCH is filled with slavery s abominable cruelties that test a man s faith in humanity and unmask shortcomings that haunt him during a life threatening illness.As the father in Alcott s Little Women this 2006 Pultizer Prize win

    This was a fabulous read I found itmoving and better written than The Known World which treats a similar subject March and his quixotic battle against slavery and madness during the Civil War is compelling and beautiful Geraldine Brook s writing is astounding and kept me turning pages because I had to know what was going to happen Although the characters were inspired by Little Women by Louisa May Alcott, the story Brooks tells is g

    Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 2006 It s a remarkable work of fiction deserving of all the acclaim it receives Many reviewers and readers like to talk of it s connection with Alcott s Little Women, and while there is a connection, it doesn t define what this novel is about at all This book stands proudly on it s own merit without any help from it s famous connection Other than the name and a few references to the little w

    I was all ready to give March by Geraldine Brooks three stars until I got to this passage I am not alone in this I only let him do to me what men have ever done to women march off to empty glory and hollow acclaim and leave us behind to pick up the pieces The broken cities, the burned barns, the innocent injured beasts, the ruined bodies of the boys we bore and the men we lay with.The waste of it I sit here, and I look at him, and it is
