Product description

Review

"Let's say you've read "Gone with the Wind" at least twice, and seen the movie over and again. So, here's a thought. Buy this handsome paperback edition, just for Pat Conroy's preface. This passionate, nearly breathless love letter is a Song of Solomon to Margaret Mitchell, Scarlett O'Hara, and Conroy's beautiful, GTW-obsessed mother. Indeed, his luminous preface packs a durable wallop, just like the epic Pulitzer prize-winning work that inspires it." -- Jan Karon, author of "The Mitford Years" series

Book Description

One of the most famous love stories of all time

Wow. I just... wow.
A 1000 page book that never gets boring? How?
I hate Scarlett so much, and a lot of people do, but I think that's because we see a lot of ourselves in her, but she just won't let herself feel guilty about it. I'd like to think I'd be like Melanie but I'd also be slapping people who were moaning about dresses when I was hunting for food all day with carpet for shoes. Mainly, everything bad that happens to Scarlett is because of her love for Ashley, who she really doesn't understand at all. In fact, Scarlett doesn't understand anyone and it's really frustrating to see her misjudge people so easily. I was her number one fan when she made money for herself despite people thinking she was being unwomanly, but this is just about the one thing she's got going for her.
Rhett... he should have just told her he loved her. I don't know how he expected someone as selfish as Scarlett to understand his hidden motives. He knew her so well, but he couldn't see this because he hoped she would love him too and forget about Ashley. I didn't even understand that this was what he was trying to do. I thought maybe he'd hoped she'd grow to love him, but even men today think that you'll forgive them and fall in love with them even when they're going off with other women.
I didn't know much about the Civil War, and what I did know did not include conditions for those not fighting. Obviously wanting to end slavery was the right thing to do, but this was done without any plan for what would happen to the slaves once they were free, and without a genuine belief that non-white people were just as good as white people.
Now, onto the film!

Gone with the Wind is one of the most wonderful novels written.
Unlike the movie, where the characters are very stiff and 2-dimensional, the book boasts a set of colourful and complex characters.
Margaret Mitchell excels in painting a picture of Atlanta during the american civil war, she captivates you and takes you back there.
The novel follows the life of Scarlett O'Hara, the rather pretentious daughter of a plantation owner. Initially she has all the naive vanity of an over privileged and utterly spoilt teenager who always gets her own way.
However, through many life changing events brought on by both the war and the love for the rogue Rhett Butler, she grows and changes as a person.
One aspect I particularly like about Gone with the Wind is that it's not a tale of dramatic character transformations. Scarlett starts out as a spoilt and annoying girl, Rhett is a rogue with a air of danger about him... but Mitchell takes you on an epic journey where you learn where the nuances come from. You find out why the characters behave that way, and why they continue to remain flawed.

This is a huge book, and I've given it five stars for content. However, I feel it's important to mention that the Pan Books paperback edition is not bound well enough to cope with 1024 pages. I found that when I got to the last 100 pages or so, they started to fall out. It very disconcerting to be lying on a beach, enjoying the sunshine and enjoying this wonderful book, only to find yourself having to run around like a madwoman trying to catch the pages that you haven't yet read!
If you are purchasing this book, find the hardcover version, even if you have to get it second hand from a Amazon Marketplace.

It's a classic what more can you say. Okay it may not portray things as they were and it's a romantic notion of the antebellum period but thoroughly enjoyable.There is in fact more to the book than the film which makes it quite an interesting read.
