I just re-read this book over the past couple of days. It's been so long since I've read it, that I had forgotten how good it was and how much is missing in the movie. This is one of the best books written, it is epic. It somehow makes you so sympathetic with the South's plight, although you understand the futility in their fight. I love the way that Rhett Butler talks in the beginning on how this is a losing battle, that after the first few fights are over, the south has no way to win the war without factories and means. It is an amazing story and it always surprises me how Scarlett is truly a modern woman, despite her girlish crushes, she is a powerful business woman and a fighter. Although she has some serious character flaws, she's fantastic. If only she didn't always learn her lessons too late!
