Oh God! Where do i begin to start!! I had a strong feeling that it being a classic won't be that good but boy! was i wrong...Rhett Butler!!! That's the only thing which comes to my mind whenever i think about Gone With The Wind. Scarlett no doubt was a bitch! and the ending couldn't get any better...

Gone with the wind
What a tremendous book!! I was really amazed at the comparisons made of the differences of the upper crust familes before and after the Civil war. The staunch bigoted attitudes of the whites toward the former slaves. A must read for all. Roger

Gone with the Wind, written in 1939, is my all-time favorite book. I love historical fiction. I tend to gravitate to historical fiction from Revolutionary times through the Civil War and Reformation. I particularly enjoy Gone with the Wind because within the pages of the book you live through tragic romances and happily ever afters. The story takes place during the Civil War and the reader is lost in the story through the eyes of Scarlett, Rhett, Ashley, and Melanie, along with a cast of other characters. Of course this time period was very unsettled and the reader learns about such topics as peer pressure from society -- staying loyal to one's family and friends and the South or taking up the cause for the North. As the war continues, some lose everything and, left with nothing, are forced to rise above the rubble and overcome the tragedies of the war. Of course, the haves and the have nots become more divided and further apart, yet adding more frustration to the time period. But, I think perhaps the strongest theme running through the novel is around feminism. As the men leave to join the war forces, the women are left to take care of the home front. There lives as they knew them change and they find themselves rising up to keep their families and their homes safe from harm. I have read Gone With the Wind probably 20 times and every time I read it I seem to always find something new about the characters and the events.
My parents gave me Gone with the Wind when I was still in grade school; a book considered a little "racey" for a grade schooler. At that time, I wasn't allowed to take the book to school, nor did I get to watch the movie, but I am so glad my parents gave me the opportunity to enjoy Gone with the Wind!

It's an incredible book, there's no doubt about it. Not my favorite, and the writing was often a little more redundant than I prefer, but it's a good story. The book made me hate Scarlett while the ... Read full review

I still don't understand what drove me to read this book, years ago when I saw the movie, I didn't like it, I found it long and boring and the main character was a shallow person, but I'm glad I gave ... Read full review
