I hated and loved every single character. I don't know what to do with these feelings.

Character Analysis: Mammy

Short & chubby, with a voice like thunder, when she talks; everyone listens. I guess you think that the woman is a white Southern belle, but you’re wrong. Mammy is the house servant for the O’Hara and Butler family. It’s not mention in the film of her correct age but Mammy was about in her mid- forties during the Civil War.
As a character, Mammy’s personality can best be described as ignorant and outspoken. When first seeing Mammy in the second scene, she’s calling

I read this in high school when I found it at the parents' house whose child I babysat. So, every time I went over, if Josh was in bed, I'd read it. I was able to read the whole thing over one summer.

I read it mostly because of all the cultural references, not so much because I am a fan of romance novels. It definitely has a certain resonance. After reading it, there is obviously a romantic element in the book but the setting (the South) in the Civil War was a great backdrop. It sort of puts you

This book is an American classic. It is a wonderful story that comes to life and makes you feel like you have lived it. Scarlett O'Hara is an amazing character that you can easily identify with. The lessons she learns from her life experiences are priceless and by the time you are finished reading it, it will feel like you have gone through everything she has. The descriptions and characters are amazingly well written. Taking place during the Civil War, it is a tear jerker and will leave you ...more

The character Scarlet was so self absorbed that I found the first third of the book a bit of a chore but then as the book went on I really appreciated the attention that was paid to character development. I think I really lived the story through Scarlets eyes. What a fabulously sad story. It was difficult to see the inhumanities of that time so vulgarly exposed and at times celebrated. Despite hating scarlet through much of the book reading Gone with the Wind is an experience I will never ...more

God I love this book so much! Alternately annoyed and delighted by Scarlett, Rhett, Ashley and Melanie, I have just had to buy the sequel - just so that Rhett and Scarlett can have a happy ever after! A really heavy book, but so enjoyable, happy, funny, tragic and sometimes so very sad - all the ingredients of a fantastic book set in such an epic setting! Lots of food for thought!!

At 41 discs long this might be the longest audiobook I've listened to but every piece of it was incredible. The narrator, Linda Stephens, didn't just read this, she truly performed it.

The book itself is epic and beautifully written.

Gone with The Wind by Margaret Mitchell
This novel has everything you could wish for and more- love and hate, War and Peace, embryonic feminism, slavery issues, bravery, humor, a wonderful plot and I have only started naming a few attractions- for the whole it would take many pages.

One of the best books ever that has inspired one of the best films, this is a rare chance.
Scarlett O’Hara is one of the best heroines and also one of the bravest, most resilient and determined characters that have been

4. a)Scarlet had no money because of the high taxes. She did awful things for money. She was storonger than anybody. She didnot care other's opinion. She saved his home, Melanie and Ashley.
b) I felt sad the last scene. Scarlet knoticed she is loving Butler. However it is too late to feel and explain. She could not get neither Ashlay nor Butler. I think Butler is poor man. He was asked marry by her

I have read this book through at least four times. Though it has dated themes about slavery and the South in general it is a wonderful read. One must remember to read this book in the context of the time period during which it was written as well as the historical period of the novel. The characters have well-drawn and one feels as if one knows them. Scarlet is especially intriguing -- a young woman fighting the conventions of her time, paying the price for her rebellion. Now here is a thought ...more

I don't know why people love this story about a proud, arrogant, selfish woman to whom nothing good ever happens and that ends in despair and hopelessness. The book is one racist, trash mouthed adventure of one tale of despair after another all to a character that (I, at least) was completely unsympathetic towards. I'm not really a tragedy sort of reader, though, so I'm sure if you love hopelessness and despair, this is the book for you. Contrarily, I do enjoy the movie.

I really enjoyed this book, despite the "N" word and the Lord's name being taken in vain so often. I can't wait to read the sequel "Scarlet" to find out what happens next. Well worth the time it took to get through it! If you enjoyed the movie you really should read this book. SO SO SO much was left out, more than any other book/movie comparison I have experienced before.

Fiddle dee Dee!! So glad I finally read this classic... MM has such clarity of thought when she describes the characters and the setting,it is hard not to imagine the scenes right before your eyes... Set in the familiar Georgia cities minus the modern day landmarks made it a much more interesting read for me..

I laugh out loud at this book. It is the most entertaining book I have read in a long long time. The characters are wonderfully developed. I love that! I am actually listening to this as I exercise and do my yard work. It made planting potatoes fun. It is a thick book and the audiobook is almost 49 hours long. We will see how long it take me to do my yard work anyway.

The second part was also mesmerising.
To be completely honest, I have to say that I liked this better than the first. While the previous part worked as an introduction of characters, this one developped them and gave them another dimension. I clearly remember the torrent of emotions I experienced because of this book. It was enchanting.
It left me breathless. In need for more.

My Mom and I used to go see the movie every year when I was a kid. Now we read the book every year beginning on May 1st - it is a great read. Kind of corny but she is 1,000 miles away and 91 and still reads a book every 3 days. It is our little tradition.

This was the book that made me enjoy reading. I will always love it for that. I also love the charaters. Well written, I cried, I was angry and I laughed. I also learned alot of history. That is how I like to learn history.

I first read this book when I was 14 years old. I immediately fell in love with it.

I read it at least twice a year. My poor paperback copy is falling apart. It is, without a doubt, my favorite book of all time.

A great classic that takes you back in time to the Civil War Era. Very similar to the movie. A little hard to enjoy and read for me because I felt that there was too much description. It will always be a classic and Mitchell did a great job.
I had to read Gone with the Wind part two because there wasn't one part one in the library. But I already saw the movie so there was no problem to read it. It is really sad when you have a person who you really love, but you cannot have him.

I have to admit that I don't like Scarlet but this book has shaped the love fantasy of few generations of women , although it is a good naration of America's civil war.
