I remember being disappointed with this sequel to one of my favourite books, Little Women. Published in 1886, it follows the lives of several boys who attended the school which Jo March and her husband Professor Bhaer founded. I remember nothing of the plot. Maybe I would enjoy the book now if I re-read it. However, because it doesn’t have a strong focus on the March sisters, I doubt it would compare very favourably with Little Women. I haven’t read Little Men, to which Jo’s Boys is a sequel. I’m reminded of how the Anne series by L M Montgomery similarly becomes less interesting as the character of Anne fades into the background while her children are given more attention by the author.
