Jack and Jill: A Village Story by Louisa May Alcott, is a children's book originally published in 1880. The story of two good friends named Jack and Janey, Jack and Jill tells of the aftermath of a serious sledding accident. Jack Minot and Janey Pecq are best friends who live next door to each other. They are always seen together, so Janey gets the nickname of Jill, to mimic the old rhyme.

Louisa May Alcott (/ˈɔːlkət, -kɒt/; November 29, 1832 – March 6, 1888) was an American novelist, short story writer and poet best known as the author of the novel Little Women (1868) and its sequels Little Men (1871) and Jo's Boys (1886). Raised in New England by her transcendentalist parents, Abigail May and Amos Bronson Alcott, she grew up among many of the well-known intellectuals of the day, such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Henry David Thoreau, and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

Clear the lulla!" was the general cry on a bright December afternoon,when all the boys and girls of Harmony Village were out enjoying thefirst good snow of the season. Up and down three long coasts they wentas fast as legs and sleds could carry them.

Louisa May Alcott was born in Germantown, Pennsylvania, in 1832. Her family later moved to Concord, Massachusetts, where Alcott was influenced by their neighbours Nathaniel Hawthorne, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Henry David Thoreau. At a young age, Louisa took on some of the family's financial burdens, working as a domestic, a teacher, and a writer. Two years later, she moved with her family to Boston and in 1840 to Concord, which was to remain her family home for the rest of her life. Her father, Bronson Alcott, was a transcendentalist and friend of Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau. Alcott early realized that her father could not be counted on as sole support of his family, and so she sacrificed much of her own pleasure to earn money by sewing, teaching, and churning out potboilers.

Although this here Louisa May Alcott novel, although Jack and Jill is in many ways incredibly preachy and moralising, and definitely much more so than her Little Women, and although I always do tend to cry my eyes out at one particular part (even more so than when Beth dies in Little Women), I keep rereading and enjoying Jack and Jill.

I think this book is the best one I have read. I have read eight of the Alex Cross books so far. The story has the most complete picture of who James Patterson's Alex Cross is and what the "Dragon Slayer" does in order to stop these serial Killers. The killers are most often very intelligent psychopaths who have no feelings of guilt or remorse.
Alex goes through so much in every case that you wonder how anyone could not loose a sense of who he is. His children, grandmother, good friend and music seem to give him the mooring to keep his self coming back and going again. What diabolical people he is dealing with, "Jack and Jill" and the killer of the little children in his own neighborhood, at the same time. He does see the good in some people he interacts with and that makes thing better but you never know who are the good guys and who are the bad guys.
All in all, I believe this book could be a made into a very good movie but there is too much to tell so one of those FX network series might work.
I'm not a book reviewer rather a book reader and writer.

I like the fast pace of James Patterson's books and his short chapters. This is the second one I've read of the Alex Cross series. I'm a slow reader only because I don't read a book in one sitting. I read it in between writing my novels and researching writing techniques and participating on writing boards. I'd say though with this book I became a faster reader, wanting to finish it. It kept me on edge with one twist and turn and new info with each page as the mystery of whodunit unfolded and became clearer. It was definitely a page turner, hooking me from the first page to the last.

I purchased another author's book, which had excellent reviews, and could never keep my interest in the novel. I'm going to stick with James Patterson, Michael Connelly, and Michael Weaver for thrillers.
I'm working my way through the Alex Cross novels, and this one really caught my attention. No one knows who Jack & Jill truly are, but Cross (and the Secret Service) is hot on their trail, but that's not the only case that draws Cross in. I like how there are different plots going on, and they all link back to Cross, who is not just worried about the serial killers looking to kill the next celebrity, or the serial killer who wants to kill another child, but the idea that Soneji is still out there, lurking. The mystery is wonderful, and the time period, as it was written years ago, brings me back. I read it every chance I could get and I look forward to more mysteries and thrilling rides from Patterson and Alex Cross.
A child killer, and some psychopaths killing famous people are he backdrop for this amazing book.
This book opens with the execution style death of a sitting United States Senator and then brutal attack on a small child that leaves the reader gasping.
Dr. Cross is assigned to the child killing, and after the death of the second high profile individual, he is also assigned to work with the FBI during their investigation.
The book proceeds with twists and turns which more than keep the reader's attention.
This writer maintains his style of detail and exciting plot lines.
For a third installment, this is actually really good. It's not as good as "Kiss Girls", but I surprisingly think it is a little better than "Along Came A Spider". For a sequel it delivers well on its promise.

I really love the two main villains in this novel, Jack and Jill. I also like the weird romance between the two that is thrown in from time to time, it just fits the description of them and also fits just how crazy they are. I don't know why, but I kinda route for these two for some reason. I know that I don't really want to, but Patterson does a good job in putting the right attention on them to make me want to. Alex Cross himself feels like he is moving up in the series. He feels more experienced than the other two novels and more alert. Also, his kids are so adorable and cute to watch (or read about). The novel itself takes things to a whole new level and allow a new feeling that stays true to the first two novels.

But then there are some problems that I do have with this novel. There are way to many sub-plots going on at once, one of which is about a child-murderer going on in Alex's neighborhood and it doesn't really fit the story. It actually feels like a completely different story. And as always, Alex gets a new love interest named Christine Johnson. We all know the problem, "it feels a little forced", just like with Jezzie from "Along Came A Spider". While I do like Christine I just can't help but feel that the romance could have been done a little better. But the one thing that I don't like is the ending. I won't spoil anything, but the ending leaves out a mystery that is never solved.

In the end, "Jack & Jill" is a good third installment to the series and I think it holds up well on its own. It offers something new and it continues the story to new levels. I say that "Jack & Jill" deserves the attention of all Alex Cross fans.
