as you pointed out, their writing is different. And also is their "intention". I mean, JA tried to write novels that depicted the "real world" while being satirical at the same time; on the other hand LMA's aim seems to have been to convey a moral teaching, you know, with plenty of characters trying to improve themselves, and being better people, and always a young person dying to show you the dark part of life.
I think that there are very few points in common. For instance, in Little Women you have four daughters growing up and getting married (well, not Beth). They are rather genteel, beautiful, but lack money. But not in a million years would I say that it has any resemblance with P&P!
