Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Margaret Mitchell's epic novel of love and war won the Pulitzer Prize and went on to give rise to two authorized sequels and one of the most popular and celebrated movies of all time. Many novels have been written about the Civil War and its aftermath. None take us into the burning fields and cities of the American South as Gone With the Wind does, creating haunting scenes and thrilling portraits of characters so vivid that we remember their words and feel their fear and hunger for the rest of our lives.

In the two main characters, the white-shouldered, irresistible Scarlett and the flashy, contemptuous Rhett, Margaret Mitchell not only conveyed a timeless story of survival under the harshest of circumstances, she also created two of the most famous lovers in the English-speaking world since Romeo and Juliet.

Review:

"Beyond a doubt one of the most remarkable first novels produced by an American writer. It is also one of the best." The New York Times

Review:

"The best novel to have ever come out of the South...it is unsurpassed in the whole of American writing." The Washington Post

Review:

"Fascinating and unforgettable! A remarkable book, a spectacular book, a book that will not be forgotten!" Chicago Tribune

Review:

"For sheer readability I can think of nothing it must give way before. Miss Mitchell proves herself a staggeringly gifted storyteller." The New Yorker

Synopsis:

An anniversary edition of Margaret Mitchell's timeless classic.

I love this book. I have always loved the movie and was quite intimidated by the shear velocity of the novel but it is one of the easiest books I have ever read!!
