    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.

    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 the extent of their personalities. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a messed up romance, times of chivalry, or the old South. I have struggled a little bit with the use of the "N" word but I try to keep in mind that it was written in a time that it was acceptable. I really don't like how much the Lord's name is used inappropriately. Otherwise the language is not bad. This book would have gotten five stars if it weren't for the uncomfortable language.

    a terrific book with an undeserved reputation limiting its importance to the romance part, particularly interesting insights about the existence of outdated "feudal-like" systems, and their collapse, unforeseen by the ones who denied their obsolete nature. A controversial study of human character, tradition, and willpower, followed by an elaborate inquiry on how elastic society is in challenging times. Highly recommended, particularly in the times of pandemic.

    Last night, I picked up part one before sleep. When I finished both parts of the book, I found myself bathing in dawn chorus already. I've never read such a gripping tale which explores the personalities of characters so deeply, yet blending it so well upon the historical and social backdrop. Through the vivid dialogues and narration, you can feel the flesh and bones of the characters, as well as their pain and struggles amidst the turbulence of war.

Through the vivid dialogues and narration, you can feel the flesh and bones of the characters, as well as their pain and struggles amidst the turbulence of war. What's more, the book is not merely a thrilling story but also a reflection of us and the people around us. Flipping through the pages, I couldn't help associating pieces of myself and my friends with the characters. By thinking from perspectives of each of the characters, I understood a bit more about myself and the dearest people around me. American Civil War has long been gone, but greed, bigotry and chaos are far from distant. Gone With the Wind is a perfect book that could inspire us and help us reflect where we should stand in the world.

    I really didn't enjoy this book as a whole. It's a wonderful slice of life, a chance to see into another world. And a major part of our country's history. Here's the thing, I didn't find any of the characters appealing. nor did I enjoy the interactions. No matter how well the book is written I found them uncompelling. Many time's I found myself wishing I could just skip a bunch of pages and move ahead the story to hopefully a good part.

    I read this books as a teenage girl. Absolutely live this. I love Scarlet despite moments in which she is annoying, she is an amazing heroine. The story is well written, and I like to think realisticly shows times of civil war in USA. I personally think most girls should read it. I can see how it impacted me as I always though I was like Scarlet, made me feel its not so bad to be different and a bit of a rebel.

    Read this 3 times and breathed, slept and dreamed Scarlett O'Hara for years. I was 11 or 12, so we are talking a long time ago. I still recall scenes in my mind from the book and lines between Brett and Scarlett. Read this 3 times and breathed, slept and dreamed Scarlett O'Hara for years.

    I love, love, love this book. The language can be tough to read but the love story is what mesmerizes me. My grandmother gave me this book when I was very young and I have read it at least four times since then!

    I love Scarlett and Rhet a long time. I read this book many times. The film is so good as the book. I love charismatic Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh is so beautiful...

    I went to my elementary school library and picked out the biggest book I could find...and this was it. I was about 12 or 13 and I loved it. Definitely a book that sticks with you for a life time.

    It was one of my favorite books during my early teens. This rating is based on my opinion at the time of reading it. Probably I would give it a lower rating if I was to reread it now, but it has lost its attraction for me a long time ago, so a rereading is out of question. From what I recall the title itself was the perfect summary of the book and it contained interesting historical and cultural information about America.

    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 Gone With the Wind has been on my list of favorite books for a long time.

I'm going to have to re-watch the movie to live in the world a little longer.

    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 I first read this book in high school. It was a struggle but well worth it.

    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. I read this book when I was 10.

    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) 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.

    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. 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?"...

    It was...different. This was something that caught me by surprise in my teens. It was one of the first english novels I ever attempted to read and to be honest, I am completely satisfied. I believe that Gone with the Wind is indeed one of a kind. I spent a good part of my life reading books and watching films & series but I still haven't gotten around something similar to it. A classic indeed. It was...different. This was something that caught me by surprise in my teens.

    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. My quintessential love-hate book. we all have one like this.

    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...

I dont think many people would choose to do it this way and I'd probably recommend going straight for the original novel! I admit it!

    Part 1? There's only one part. Anyway, even though there are disturbing klan gatherings and racist stereotypes, this is an absorbing book. Part 1? There's only one part. Anyway, even though there are disturbing klan gatherings and racist stereotypes, this is an absorbing book.
