I give up - I am halfway through and I just don't care what happens to anyone. In fact, this has dampened my love of Gone With the Wind and Rhett Butler, so I am just stopping now. I read the sequel by Alexandra Ripley, Scarlett, and it was very good. But this - it has no heart, no emotional punch and way too much about the war. All the emotional scenes are flat and short and I didn't really learn much about Rhett Butler that I hadn't surmised from the original book, except that according to the author, he was not as much of a rake and a scoundrel (with a big heart) as I had imagined. I liked him better in my mind. I'd love to hear from someone who read the book and liked it!

Matthew Crehan Higgins I'm about a third through and feeling that. Thinking I should quit now.
