Audio Book Summary

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Literature, Margaret Mitchell's great novel of the South is one of the most popular books ever written. Within six months of its publication in 1936, Gone With the Wind had sold a million copies. To date, it has been translated into 25 languages, and more than 28 million copies have been sold. Here are the characters that have become symbols of passion and desire: darkly handsome Rhett Butler and flirtatious Scarlett O'Hara. Behind them stand their gentler counterparts: Ashley Wilkes and Melanie Hamilton. As the lives and affairs of these absorbing characters play out against the tumult of the Civil War, Gone With the Wind reaches dramatic heights that have swept generations of fans off their feet. Having lived in Atlanta for many years, narrator Linda Stephens has an authentic ear for the dialects of that region. Get ready to hear Gone With the Wind exactly as it was written: every word beautifully captured in a spectacular unabridged audio production.

    I am almost 50 years old and have not seen the movie before. I wanted to read the book first and I finally have. This book was wonderful. I don't think I could of appreciated it as much if I had read it as a much younger woman, so I am glad that for many reasons I didn't get the chance to read it until now. I understand why it is such a well known book. It is very well written, and the characters are full and alive. The story is meaningful and engaging. I laughed, bawled, grew frusterated and angry...I was very emotionally involved! The narrator was EXCELLENT.I highly recommend this book and although I know the book version is always much better then the film, I look forward to the movie as well. I will be reading this book again. Something I rarely do.

    Wow. Everyone should read this book BUT NOT bc it is a good book. In fact, this may go down as one of the WORST books I have ever read/listened to, (despite the narrator being excellent). By way of background, I never saw the movie, Gone with the Wind. So I thought this was a love story, but I didn’t really know what it was about. I just knew it was a classic, a well-loved story. So I quickly chose it as my VIP freebie selection of the month. And now that I’ve read it, once again, I say… wow. I realize this book was written in the 1930s. But please do not ask me to give it a pass because “it was a different time.” Look it up for yourself- apparently this book was second only to the Bible in popularity in 1990s. Yes, the actual 1990s (the days when Full House and Friends were popular on television). THIS BOOK. This racist, propaganda-laced book depicting black people as ignorant foolish children who loved being slaves, and the KKK as sympathetic heroes who were just trying to protect their vulnerable white women from violence (ironic) at the hands of black people and their “white trash” “yankee” supporters. Everyone should read this book. And THEN, we should all ask ourselves some very serious questions about why a book like this was still so beloved by so many people up and into the 1990s. Because I will tell you this, it is NOT owing to an interesting plot or exceptional writing. I’m being generous when I say both were, “meh.” But there IS a reason why so many people loved this book. And frankly, my dears, it’s time we all start giving “a damn” as to why. Negative one star. But don’t burn books. Read this for an education.

    A great depiction of what life is like when you are a selfish woman. I enjoyed the history and was pleasantly surprised that she got what she deserved. Great life lessons in this classic.
