I have read this book annually or biannually since I was 10, and each time it has new meaning. Contrary to popular belief, this is not a "chick read"; it's historical, social, and political as well as sexual. The depth of character development and plot and the lyricism of Mitchell's writing never ceases to engage and amaze me. Highly recommended for everyone.

Sem dúvida, o melhor livro que li. Tenho plena consciência de que jamais voltará a ser escrita uma obra como esta. A complexidade, o rigor histórico, a profundidade humana das personagens - com os seus erros, as suas vulnerabilidades, os seus egoísmos expostos a nu, as suas más intenções, os seus medos e pequenas conquistas. Ri, aprendi algumas lições e chorei. Confrontei-me assim com a realidade dos negros do Sul muito ligado a explorações de algodão, pobre em indústria. Fiquei assim a saber qu...more
It is not a coincidence that "Gone with the Wind" is the most sold book in Romania. It has all the ingredients of masterpieces: great realistically characters set in a period that will not repeat too soon, all wrapped by great writing skills. What would you want more?

As I usually do for my reviews I will try to break it down to individual characteristics in order to be able to have an objective opinion about it.The premise is pretty obvious and I guess will remain the same for the second volume....more

Nascida em 1900 em Atlanta, no estado de Geórgia, Margaret era filha de um advogado e de uma sufragista e toda a vida ouviu histórias sobre a Guerra de Secessão, quer de parentes, quer de veteranos que haviam lutado do lado da Confederação, histórias que a obcecavam e faziam com que ainda criança, se levantasse a meio da noite para registar as suas ideias para peças e livros e que haviam de inspirar um dos livros mais grandiosos de sempre, E Tudo o Vento L...more

I have really been enjoying this book. Somehow I have never read it OR watched the movie but I finished the movie last night. I am so disappointed in the movie. They should have made it at least three more hours and added all the important things they left out. I enjoyed the movie but was surprised how much they left out. The book, on the other hand, has been very enjoyable. I can't believe how selfish and impertinent Scarlet is and how much of a cad Rhett is. The movie can not begin to capture...more
Ao contrário da maior parte das pessoas li o(s) livro(s) antes de ver o filme, ganha a Margaret M.!
کتابی که هرگز تمامش نخواهم کرد.

cerita gone with the wind pada awalnya sangat membosankan. seperti roman, sejarah keluarga dikupas habis-habisan dan sangat membosankan. karena terpengaruh oleh gaya bahasa yang membosankan itu, saya pun melewati beberapa bagian untuk mencari nama 'Rhett Butler' (haha) dan menikmati seluk beluk awal percintaan mereka. Begitu pula dengan bagian perang yang membosankan jua saya lewatkan..

kata-kata Margaret Mitchell sungguh nyaman dan enak dibaca. saya betul-betul ter-absorbed ke dalamnya...

Jeg er en af de få, som kender til Borte med Blæsten, men har aldrig læst den, eller set filmen. Jeg så bøgerne ved boghandleren, til ingen penge og købte den, og så stod den på bog reolen i lang tid, før jeg fandt ud af at nu skulle det være nu, og nu undre det mig, at det har taget mig så lang tid, at tage mig sammen til at læse den.

Den første del af Borte med Blæsten, som foregå under Den Amerikanske Borgerkrig, er fantastisk.
Selvom bogen er meget lang, især når den er i to bind, er den fanta...more

jeg kan godt forstå, at dette er blevet en klassiker - det er en fantastisk fortælling om sydens historie fra før borgerkrigen og helt frem til et pænt stykke tid efter. Man kan mene meget om Scarlett og hendes opførsel, men jeg syntes faktisk at man langt hen af vejen har forståelse for, at en pige der kun er opdraget de store baller og kjoler uden nogen skole eller "rigtig" virkelighed, reagerer som hun gør når hun kastes hovedkulds ud i krigens grusomheder o verdens realiteter.

Gone With the Wind has been on my list of favorite books for a long time. I started re-reading it on my nook and then halfway through my nook froze and died. And for weeks all I could think about was reading this book. Then i finally got a new Nook and have been finishing it since. Reading quickly to gobble it up but also trying to slow down so it wouldn't. The book is just so intricately woven. Each character so strong and well developed. And the story so exciting and heart breaking. It's one o...more

I first read this book in high school. It was a struggle but well worth it. I read it again a few years later in college, much easier to read. The last time I read it, I could appricate the book as a well written story based on actual events. Each time I've read this novel, I have always have felt I learned something. I can also understand why the movie had so many directors (three? four?)there are just too many story lines to work with! I might add: the book search feature does not have hardbou...more

I really hate Scarlett because she is stupid. she leaves someone who
loves her for someone who doesnt care about her and he is going to marry from someone else. Scarlett waits for the moment to be alone with ashely to ask him if he loves her or not. Also when she got married she didnt changed and loved her husband the whole thing she wanted from the world is "ASHELY".

And I think Ashely will never tell her what she wants to hear it from him(less)

Wow. It was long and detailed! I loved parts - really disliked others. I found when she was describing the civil war battles it was almost like reading a history book and I found my mind wandering elsewhere. At times, I wanted to reach into the book and shake some sense into Scarlett - how could she treat people like she was ALL the time! And Rhett .. I adored him throughout the book and especially at the end.

Great book!
I read this book when I was 10. I barely broke for food and trips to the ladies...in fact, I think I took it with me to the ladies....anyway. It took about a day and a half. When I was done, I had a miserable crick in my neck, but I wanted to read it again--immediately.

If you get bogged down in the section that's all battles and stuff, give yourself permission to skip it. You'll get through it when you re-read this novel.

داستانی هست به زعم من کاملا" سطحی ، پیش پا افتاده ، تا حدی تقدیس کننده برده داری و یا برده داران ، علی رغم ظاهر فریبنده و دلنشینی که دارد بیشتر ناشی از خشم نفرت جنوبی ها نسبت به شمالی ها و آبراهام لینکلن رییس جمهور فقید آمریکا ست، بیشتر موفقیت داستان بر می گردد به بغض فروخورده جنوبی ها به سبب شکستی که از هواداران آزادی سیاهان داشته اند، کتاب به راحتی در بسیاری از جاها به ورطه داستان پردازی های عوام زده می افتد
i read this when i was 11 or 12 and was surprised to absolute love it. no idea how much i would like it now. i read a 500-page hard bound copy i found on my mother's shelves. i watched the movie afterward, and it's actually shocking how much depth and grit is removed in the film version. the film is the cheesiest of cheese.
Every summer, as I adjust my sunglasses and lean back with an iced tea on the beach, I revisit this grand story of southern mystique, a splash of civil war history, and one woman's journey from naive debutant to full-blooded vixen. All women ask themselves, at some point in their lives, "Is he an Ashley or is he a Rhett?"...

Autant en emporte le vent en français.

Film culte... Roman culte aussi.
Fait partie de la bibliothèque idéale. Le dosage fresque historique, intrigue et personnages attachants est parfait.
À lire avant de voir le film pour ne pas être influencée par l'interprétation des acteurs.
My quintessential love-hate book. we all have one like this. I cannot help loving the characters in their imperfections. Margaret Mitchell is a spectacular story-teller. You cannot forget Tara. or Rhett Butler. and most of all Scarlett O'Hara. I carry this book in my heart.

the beautiful Scarlett learns that Ashley,the man she loves in secret,is going to marry another woman.even the terrible American Civil War is nothing compared to her broken heart.but one man knows her secret ,the handsome and dangerous Rhett Butler..
I really enjoyed it! I rediscovered characters I thought I knew very well, and discovered one I really like, even if he has not been there very long. My favorite thing was to understand better how the bond between Scarlett and Melly was formed...
بر باد رفته مارگارت میچل با ترجمه پرتو اشراق را نشر ناهید منتشر کرده، این کتاب با ترجمه حسن شهبازی توسط انتشارات امیرکبیر و همچنین انتشارات نگاه به بازار کتاب عرضه شده، همین رمان را انتشارات دبیر نیز با ترجمه کیومرث پارسای ارائه کرده است
دوست دارم کتابشو
دلم می خواد یه بار دیگه بخونمش
موقع خوندنش دوست داشتم قسمت هایی که درباره تاریخ و جنگ صحبت می شه زود تموم بشه و زندگی اسکارلت رو توضیح بده
هنوز نمی دونم چجوری حدس زدی من این جور کتاب ها رو دوست دارم!!
I admit it! I was nervous to start the Tome that is GWtW and this was a nice little intro. I dont think many people would choose to do it this way and I'd probably recommend going straight for the original novel!

من این کتاب را چندین سال پیش خواندم وقتی که 16 ساله بودم در همان موقع هم خیلی از این کتاب خوشم آمد خوشم نمیاد که بگم مثلا کلاسیک بود یا شخصیت پردازی خوب بود و غیره فقط میدونم که از خواندنش لذت بردم

“She raised her chin and her pale, black-fringed eyes sparkled in the moonlight. Ellen had never told her that desire and attainment were two different matters; life had not taught her that the race was not to the swift. She lay in the silvery shadows with courage rising and made the plans that a sixteen-year-old makes when life has been so pleasant that defeat is an impossibility and a pretty dress and a clear complexion are weapons to vanquish fate.” 7 likes
