“Eight Cousins” suffers from the problem that a lot of Alcott's work does—it's occasionally a novel, and mostly a pamphlet on her views on raising children. And while the ideas it promotes were pretty revolutionary at the time (girls in proper play clothes, encouraged to be active and eat well instead of being laced into corsets!), there's nothing particularly interesting to the modern mind.

What I liked about “Little Women” and “Little Men” is that the characters were fully developed, and felt like people instead of mouthpieces. Alcott put her views in, sure, but they were brought up as bits of natural character development, or in conversations between characters that felt like actual conversations. It came across as "Amy learning selflessness", not "Alcott speaking through Jo and Amy for fourteen pages". In contrast, the characters in “Eight Cousins” are mostly just there to promote her views. Whole chapters can be spent with characters discussing—at length—Alcott's stances, and having Rose ultimately prove them right. It's a shame, because there's a lot of potential here. She set up some very interesting, quirky characters and occasionally they begin to feel like people. But soon after, they're back to being walking moral lessons. ( )

I think this may be my favorite Alcott book. I love the interactions between the cousin and their distinct personalities. Beautiful book.

his is a morality tale, showing young girls of the late 19th century what virtue looks like.

And while many of the lessons remain true today – kindness, sacrifice, avoiding bad company and harmful habits like smoking – I struggled with this book.

The heroine Rose is so darn good she sets my teeth on edge. I sincerely thought about abandoning this, but then read the Wikipedia entry and learned that this book was considered quite feminist in its day for encouraging comfortable clothing and outdoor exercise as well as a wealthy young lady wanting to have an occupation to fall back on– which, tear my hair out - turned out to be housekeeping.

I'm glad to have read it as the only other Alcott I've read was Little Women and, from my first reading of it in 5th grade, I was firmly on Team Jo.

This book is not for the rebels at heart. ( )

Lovely as always. I read and reread this so many times that, despite not having looked at it in probably 20 or 30 years, I remembered most of the events as they came up. Of course, that's helped by the fact that it's utterly predictable - Rose really doesn't go in for twists. It's a sweet story; the style is old-fashioned (not unexpectedly - originally published in 1875), but unlike several other books I've read recently, Alcott doesn't obtrude herself into the story excessively. The characters are solid, the language slightly odd but not very, the situations quite familiar - people don't change all that much - and while there is a strong moral message, it's transmitted through and by the characters, rather than by straight preaching. Glad I read it again, I won't wait as long next time. ( )

Sweet story of an orphan with seven cousins being taken care of by her uncle. He encourages her to run, jump and play; not to be lady like. ( )

Rose sat all alone in the big best parlor, with her little handkerchief laid ready to catch the first tear, for she was thinking of her troubles, and a shower was expected.
