Since its original publication in 1936, Gone With the Wind—winner of the Pulitzer Prize and one of the bestselling novels of all time—has been heralded by readers everywhere as The Great American Novel.

A superb piece of storytelling, it vividly depicts the drama of the Civil War and Reconstruction.

This is the tale of Scarlett O’Hara, the spoiled, manipulative daughter of a wealthy plantation owner, who arrives at young womanhood just in time to see the Civil War forever change her way of life. A sweeping story of tangled passion and courage, in the pages of Gone With the Wind, Margaret Mitchell brings to life the unforgettable characters that have captured readers for over seventy years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must read. Really Usually, I rate a book based on the author's writing style. More than the story, what resonates with me is an eloquent and poetic piece of writing. This novel, however, is at the top of my charts simply for having the very best story. I am not by any means discounting the author's talent, the writing was extraordinary. The characters and the plot are unforgettable. The story is very unexpected, it'll pull you in. A must read for everyone, you won't be able to put it down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Book is " Oh My God" Amazing It is very, very easy to understand why this book is a classic. It was written beautifully. I saw the movie and then read the book, and I thought the movie was good, but the book was a million times better. The movie really doesn't do justice to the book. With the book you get more backround information on characters like Ellen and Gerald, Scarlett's parents, and in general more insight. READ THIS BOOK YOU WILL LOVE IT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gone WithThe Wind I have read this book over and over and over. The absolute strength of Scarlett O'Hara is rarly seen in literature. She had loyalties to her family, sacrificing and labouring when they had nothing. She had loyalties to her home, fearing no one and nothing to save it. Most importantly, she had loyalties to herself. She didn't allow the laws and standards of southern society keep her from striving to be the best that she could be. But the greatest quality of this character was that she was human. She made mistakes. She loved, she lost, she survived because afterall "tomorrow is another day."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful book if I could give this book seven stars, I would!!! Superb, directly adheres to the creator of All My Children's advice for making a good story: make them laugh, make them cry, and make them wait. The book is wonderfully romantic, passionate, and exciting. Never a dull moment. There is also a lot of accurate historical information. Fabulous reading.

Editorial Reviews

"GWTW is an indelible portrait of a unique time and place, American's greatest political and moral conflict, and the myths that surround it -- an all absorbing spectacle of a read even for postmodern readers. Mitchell vividly portrays the disillusionment and devastation of war, the ignorance of the uninitiated, and the transformation of arrogance into tenacity that shaped the first "new South." All the details of history and place come together as a rich backdrop for those unforgettable characters: shallow and selfish Scarlett, sincere Melanie, moony-eyed Ashley, and the sage, pragmatic, dashing, and rakish Rhett Butler--the most enduring heartthrob of American literature has produced. I'd reread the book for the thrill of Rhett alone!" -- Darnell Arnoult, author of Sufficient Grace
