I have been very happy to learn what happened to the characters I had learned to known in The Cousins and to read Louisa May Alcott again. I used to love her novels when I was a teenager and I still do as a grown up.

I really enjoyed when I was young the prequel, Rose & her cousins. This sequel is written in the same style, and the story continues. An enjoyable moment of reading, full of good values and deep characters!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Kindle Version is Error-Ridden 4 septembre 2011

This review is not about the story (which I enjoyed), but focuses only on the editing of the Kindle version. Long sections of dialogue are missing most of their punctuation, leaving numerous run-on sentences. I had to work hard to decipher when one sentence ended and another began. It's as if someone was transcribing hurriedly from the book, and not stopping to put in the punctuation.

In one section near the end, it seemed as if basic plot information was also missing. I could make no sense of it, and finally just moved on. I have not seen this problem with Alcott's other works in Kindle. It's hard to complain about something that was free, so I'll just say, if you want the gist of the story, this is fine. But if you want a smoother read, it would be worth paying for a better version.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 One of my favorite's from Louisa May Alcott 18 juin 2011

Lovely story, for adults and children. I recommend that you read "Eight Cousins" first as this is the sequel to that story. I love the story of Rose and Uncle Mac and all her cousins and I still get a little weepy when I get to the chapter, "Alas, for Charlie!" I've read this book about several times over the last 20 some years. It has a beautiful conclusion and goes to show that a book that was written over a hundred years ago still can be so beloved today. I also recommend "An Old Fashioned Girl" by Louisa May Alcott if you like this story.

Rose in Bloom is a beautiful gem of a book, penned by the same hand which authored the time-honored novel Little Women. This is the sequel to the charming volume entitled Eight Cousins. A more "grown-up" Rose Campbell returns to her family clan after travelling around the world with her friend Phebe as companion.

I love this book because Rose in independent, yet desires to serve others. Suffice it to say, she is a good role model for girls. I found her to be very much selfless. Even though Rose possesses personal wealth, she wishes not to shower herself with glories but to disperse it to those less fortunate. Creating a lifestyle considered progressive for a woman (especially in the 1800s), Rose in blooming into a mature woman of society with tender confidence.

Since I cannot describe Miss Rose Campbell as well as the author once did, here's a direct picture of our blossoming heroine:

"Not a remarkably gifted girl in any way, and far from perfect; full of all manner of youthful whims and fancies; a little spoiled by much love; rather apt to think all lives as safe and sweet as her own; and, when want or pain appealed to her, the tender heart overflowed with a remorseful charity which gave of its abundance recklessly. Yet, with all her human imperfections, the upright nature of the child kept her desires climbing toward the just and pure and true, as flowers struggle to the light; and the woman's soul was budding beautifully under the green leaves behind the little thorns." (Chapter 3, Rose in Bloom)

With her seven male cousins surrounding her, along with the odd assortment of various aunts and uncles, there are many who desire to see Rose grow. They cherish her presence among themselves and attempt to flatter her at every turn. Advances in love flourish as Rose once again settles among the people she knows best in the world.

Phebe Moore, Rose's befriended maid, too is experiencing her own way of making it into society -- only through a different course. Her life has always been destined to contrast Rose's, as her place on the social ladder started out on a much lower rung. Quickly she is learning how to climb higher though, and soon wins the heart of a familiar face, without intended design. However, the social implications simply couldn't converge for a winning marriage. So what can a girl do?

As usual, Louisa May Alcott has written another charming book. The story contains many good life lessons. As Rose tries life out on her own, sometimes becoming a bit too daring or risky with her choices, she soon makes her way back and settles into routine. In essence, the reader learns much of Victorian idealism and traditions of young adults during that time. I did so enjoy getting to catch glimpses of what all of those Eight Cousins became as they turn into adults.

In closing, enjoy some advice on life from dearest cousin, Mac Campbell ("the Worm" was always my favorite of Rose's cousins anyway):

"I have my dreams and aspirations, and some of them are pretty high ones. Aim at the best, you know, and keep climbing if you want to get on." (Chapter 2, Rose in Bloom)

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Star rating is entirely for the extremely poorly edited and formatted Kindle Edition 16 mai 2013
Par Kate McMurry - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book is a sequel to Eight Cousins. It was originally published in 1876 as a contemporary novel. Rose was 13 in Eight Cousins and is currently 20 years old. She just spent two years traveling all over Europe with her guardian, Uncle Alec, while her best friend, Phebe, studied music and improved her amazing voice. Rose informally adopted Phebe soon after they first met when Rose was 13 and Phebe was 15. Like Rose, 22-year-old Phebe is an orphan, but instead of being an heiress who is part of a large, loving family like Rose, Phebe was a foundling.

Rose is amazed at how mature and grown up her seven male cousins are. Archie and Charlie are 23, and Archie is soberly working for rich, merchant Uncle Mac, while Charlie, son of a rich ship captain, is a social butterfly. Mac, like Phebe, is 22. He plans to become a doctor and will study with Uncle Alec, who has been a doctor for many years. Steve is 20 and seems to do nothing but go to high-society events. Will is 19, and Geordie is 18, both of them attending a military academy. Jamie is 13 and acts as if he's about 8-9 years old, perhaps because he's the baby of the family.

Rose is dismayed to discover, when Jamie blurts it out, that her relatives hope she will marry one of her cousins and keep herself (and her large fortune) in the family. Archie's mother, Aunt Jesse, and Mac's father, Uncle Mac, hope Rose will marry sober, reliable Archie. Charlie's mother, Aunt Clara--and Charlie himself--think he's the man for Rose, but unfortunately, he has a drinking problem that disgusts virginal Rose. No one but Uncle Alec thinks that Mac is the cousin with the most potential to make Rose a good husband. Mac is unpolished and bluntly spoken, but he is brilliant, multi-talented, and as honest as the day is long with no bad habits.

Where Eight Cousins is clearly a children's book, this story is geared more for older girls in their teens and might, today, be called "young adult." In the nineteenth century, though, all ages read these books.

I read this book so many times in my childhood, I practically had it memorized. I was happy to discover that, after many decades since I had last experienced it, this book was just as delightful a read for me now as it was when I was young. It is not called a "classic" for nothing.

I rate this novel as follows:

Heroine: 5 stars
Subcharacters: 5 stars
Family drama plot: 5 stars
Romance plot: 5 stars
Writing: 5 stars
Overall: 5 stars

The rest of this review pertains to the free Kindle edition:

Most people purchasing this classic story will have read and treasured it in their childhood and desire to either re-read it themselves or hand it on to a child or grandchild. Unfortunately, anyone familiar with this book will notice immediately that in various places, words are missing. In addition, this is one of the worst formatted and edited Kindle books I've ever read, and I've read hundreds. I would not recommend this edition of Rose in Bloom to anyone.

Amazon does state clearly in the product description: "This book was converted from its physical edition to the digital format by a community of volunteers." That seems to indicate that this is a Project Gutenberg edition. However, I downloaded that edition in the Kindle for PC app just before writing this review, and as far as I could tell by quickly skimming it, it does not seem nearly as badly formatted as this edition. Somehow in making it available here on Amazon for instant download, something was lost in translation.

This sequel to Eight Cousins continues the story of Rose, her cousins, and her treasured friend, Phoebe, as they mature into their early adulthood. The language may seem quaint and the tone overly sentimental but Louisa May wrote in the manner of her time. Her books were intended to be entertaining and even instructive with their carefully phrased but very obvious morality lessons.

If sharing her stories with young people, the adult will find material still worth discussing (even in the 21st Century context): the loving and supportive relationships of friends and family, the concept and practice of honor, and a hope or trust in the virtue of simple happiness. A parent will not find a need to pre-censore text when reading this to young children.

An adult reader may rediscover with pleasure an old and gentle friend that asks little in the effort of reading, but leaves the reader feeling more peaceful at the end of each chapter.
