A warm Welcome to the new cover!,
This review is from: Gone with the Wind (Paperback)
So pleased that a version of this great book has been printed which doesn't undermine the whole novel. The previous orange cover (beautifully dramatic) was also misleading, and pure "bodice-ripper" material. From what I recall there's only a kiss (or two?) between Scarlett and Rhett in the whole story - not unreasonable, given that they married!
What there is though, is a fascinating novel deep and detailed about the destruction caused by the American Civil War, and the changes it brought to the lives it impacted.
Never boring, the whole glorious thing never slacks pace, and is a fabulous "read".
Don't expect to like Scarlet, though, she has some good points, but being "nice" isn't one of them as she develops from a spoiled princess into a mature woman who needs to rebuild her life - yet again.
Well worth the price - I'll ditch the bodice-ripper copy I have, and get one of these.
