Little Women, by Lousia May Alcott is one of my favourite stories, along with the sequels, Good Wives, Little Men and Jo's Boys.
While I love the books, I get rather disappointed by the movies (of which there are several). The movies aways combine Little Women and Good Wives, but never go on to the rest of the story in Little Men and Jo's Boys.
My biggest compliant, however, is with how the character of 'Beth' is portrayed in the films. She is always portrayed as a spineless, sappy person. That's not really how she is at all. In fact, I think she had more courage than all her sisters.
