I can write a review of the movie. There are no other movies to compare it to. It stands alone. The book. I never read it until now.
Excellent? No! Way above any other novel written, and I don't care to know what you think about other authors.
This was a lark. This was a fluke.
As I read, I think of Margaret Mitchell typing away pages on her portable Remington typewriter during the deadful days of the Great Depression.
Pouring her heart out over characters she created based on true people she grew up with in the old south full of folklore and imagination.
A wonderful lady, a lady in need of caring for she was to be killed while crossing a street...a decade later...after all the excitement of the movie and the popularity of the book was surpassed by the turmoil of World War 11.
No, I need write no review about the movie at all.
It's what the heart needs most to read, and I will get to read it finally.
We are living truly in a civilization "Gone with the Wind" now, and all that remains is this literary achievement that was only published through the stubborn tenacity of a traveling agent.
Margaret Mitchell never wrote anything more than one big novel.
Not like most authors who keep writing about all kinds of things, she just wrote random chapters and kept it hidden until someone came snooping around.
And now, some seventy years later, it turns out to be, without doubt, the best all around novel ever written.
Scarlet O'Hara..."If I have to lie, steal, cheat or kill, as God is my witness, I'll never go hungry again".
For all these reasons, we exist and continue onward, but something beautiful gets lost...forever.
I'd seen the movie many times, but don't remember actually reading the book until now. Just did it for a book club meeting, but boy am I glad I did. Such detail and character development is uncommon in books written in this decade - even in the one's I really like. Now the trend is to make every story part of a trilogy or a lengthy series. This book was like having several books in a series put together. It's a real insight into not just a period of time but of human nature itself including the good, the bad, and the ugly. (Sorry wrong genre but it still fits!) The paperback was in great shape to have been from 1976, and didn't require any downloads, special software, or updates. Just open the pages and connect to brain via biological optical devices - (eyes!)
Just one of the books ever written. Drama at its best! Margaret Mitchell's work stands as one of the best written romantic dramas of its time. Of any time! Scarlett manages to be infuriating and delightful characters ever to be put ot page. Lovely Rhett Butler.
Had never read this classic before. Was convinced to buy it because of the good price. I am really enjoying the story. It is an excellent telling of how the South came through the Civil War. Really admire Scarlett's hard headedness.
I watched the movie but it was not nearly as good as the book. A love story you will never forget. The book is very long but you will not be able to put it down. I would recommend reading this timeless novel.
