Well I never

This is not knitting related.

I have never understood why Jo doesn't marry Laurie. She always ends up with the other fellow every time I read the silly book . Each and every time I think she ot to end up with Laurie. Absurd.

I have been knitting but mostly sleeping and reading.

I have read Gordon Which is a very odd book
Threshold another odd book, and back to a classic Little Women.

I agree -- I never saw chemistry between Jo and Prof. Bhaer. And Laurie and Amy? That's just weird. >

I've never understood the Prof thing either...always leaves me with an aching heart.

Nah, after the first few times I didn't understand but now I'm against the Jo / Laurie thing. I love the professor. Laurie is too wussy. Jo would roll all over him and then she'd never respect him because he'd be a doormat. Whereas Laurie ends up with the perfect little doormat socialite of a wife for himself, and Jo ends up with an intellectual who can actually discuss and ARGUE with her. Laurie will never argue with her. She needs someone to stand up to her. >

I'm going to have to go and reread Little Women again, aren't I? Oh.The.Trauma. (<-major tongue in cheek! I love the book!)

Laurie never would have stood a chance with Jo. It looks like a good match, but he never would have been able to keep up with her! >

I've often wondered the same things... or at least why Laurie would settle for Amy. He was obviously just after the family connections. >

ITs a sad but happy, sad, silly, fun, family, sad book. Laurie was bound to get in the family somehow and someone had to marry Amy. Must go find my copy of Jo's boys now.
