A couple months ago, I was at Barnes and Noble. A Romanian girl was talking to her American friend about how she read Gone with the Wind in Romanian. Now she'd love to read it in English. She had a book in her hands, but it was not Gone with the Wind. It was Scarlett! I informed her that the book she was holding was not Gone with the Wind, but a sequel. A horrible sequel she would regret reading. Then I picked up the right book for ...more
The story begins with Melanie's funeral where SCARLETT makes a spectacle of herself comforting Ashley....."the cause of her life's destruction".....that exacerbates her isolation and ostracism from Atlanta society.
So.....a downhearted SCARLETT returns to her beloved Tara for comfort, but all is not well there either with an aged Mammy and Suellen as hateful as ever.
With constant thoughts of how to win back her only true love, the story...more
No one who loved GWTW can deny that he/she WANTED to know how the story of Scarlett and Rhett turned out. Margaret ...more
Scarlett gives closure to Gone With the Wind fans. I've read it multiple times and have enjoyed it more each time. I definitely recommmend this book!
When the made-for-tv "Scarlett" movie was made, I watched it with my sister. It wasn't the worst ever, but nothing to the original. I eventually read this book as well and thought it was ...more
That said, I didn't find it at all convincing. Scarlett may have realized her love for Ashley was a childish fantasy and her loves for Rhett and Melanie were real, but that doesn't mean that she would suddenly be able to throw off a lifetime of the ...more
I started off with low expectations, and found that "Scarlett" was easy to read and reasonably entertaining. I knew from the start that it deserved no more than 2 1/2 stars but was planning to give it 3, because I was enjoying it. Like many, I really wanted to find out about "Act 2" of Scarlett and Rhett. When I first read GWTW, as a ...more
Anyway, it's really sad for me to see one of the best literary masterpieces be sequelled by such a terrible ...more
After seeing the movie Gone With The Wind for the umpteenth time and once again being disappointed there was no happy ending (sorry you classic lovers, but the ending where Scarlett says she’ll find a way to win Rhett back just begs for the rest of the story!), I was glad there was a sequel. It was commissioned by Margaret Mitchell’s estate and the author selected in a competition.
I could not believe the ending. It's so funny because I didn't know much about the movie, but I sort of knew that people were not happy with the ending. Not sure why I never was intrigued to find out why or what they were talking about.
I was up in arms after seeing the movie--how could it end that way??? Luckily, the very year I ...more
Both of this book is amazing..
I really love it...
Love... Love... Love...
But I haven't seen the movie of gone with the wind..
Scarlett and Gone With The Wind are bought by my father, first my dad just bought Gone With The Wind but after i read it. I start to beg my dad to buy Scarlett( I can't buy by myself for i don't have money:0 )
But... Scarlett and Gone With The Wind are very very very niceee....
Not for me. I was unimpressed with this book as a sequel to Gone With the Wind. The characters acted in ways that I don't think Mitchell would have made them act. And the writing felt like a cheap imitation of Margaret Mitchell's. I personally didn't like it but I can see why others would. I was going to finish but decided not to because I have better things to do with my time.

"Why?" Rhett's mouth twisted in a smile.
"Because she was so full of fire and so recklessly, stubbornly brave.Because she was such a child beneath all her pretenses.Because she was unlike any woman I had ever known. She fascinated
me,infuriated me, drove me mad. I loved her as consumingly as she loved him. From the day I first laid eyes on her. It was a kind of disease."
There was a weight of sorrow in his voice. He bowed his head into his two hands and laughed shakily. His voice was muffled and blurred by his fingers. "What a grotesque practical joke life is. Now Ashley Wilkes is a free man and would marry Scarlett on a moment's notice, and I want to be rid of her. Naturally that makes her determined to have me. She wants only what she cannot have."
Rhett raised his head. "I'm afraid," he said quietly, "afraid that it will all begin again. I know that she's heartless and completely selfish, that she's like a child who cries for a toy and then breaks it once she has it. But there are moments when she tilts her head at a certain angle, or she smiles that gleeful smile, or she suddenly looks lost-and I come close to forgetting what I know.”
