Margaret Mitchell's epic novel of love and war won the Pulitzer Prize and went on to give rise to two authorized sequels and one of the most popular and celebrated movies of all time. Many novels have been written about the Civil War and its aftermath. None take us into the burning fields and cities of the American South as Gone With the Wind does, creating haunting scenes and thrilling portraits of characters so vivid that we remember their words and feel their fear and hunger for the rest of our lives. In the two main characters, the white-shouldered, irresistible Scarlett and the flashy, contemptuous Rhett, Margaret Mitchell not only conveyed a timeless story of survival under the harshest of circumstances, she also created two of the most famous lovers in the English-speaking world since Romeo and Juliet.

5 Stars. Buy it Spoilers This was definitely a favorite while I was growing up and helped me really like long novels. One thing I’m noticing is that despite being quite a bit older since I’ve last read this, is that it’s still really hard to understand when the slaves are talking. DAMN it. M...

5.0 Review: Gone With the Wind
The classic square for my Spring Book Bingo challenge was the one that worried me most because I am just not a classic reader. Classics don't interest me and I was racking my brain trying to think of something to read for this square. Gone with the Wind is one of my favorite movies. I have a paper...
