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.

Widely considered The Great American Novel, and often remembered for its epic film version, Gone With the Wind explores the depth of human passions with an intensity as bold as its setting in the red hills of Georgia. 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 3 out of 5 by from Nothing Like the Movie When I read this as teen i was surprised about the amount of story changed most especially her previous children were never mentioned

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Story Looking at the size of Gone with the Wind, you would assume it was a dull classic that would take ages to read but it is truly worth every second. The plot is constantly progressing and interesting, the story focuses on the American Civil War from the perspective of the Southerns which is very intriguing and the characters are so well-developed that you won't know if you love them or hate them. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnificent One of the best books I have read in 2016. I didn't know anything about American history before reading this but after finishing it, I immediately registered for a course on American Civil Rights during course registration period at my university. I highly recommend this for those in love with history and even those who aren't!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Story !!! The book and movie were great - my favourite of all time. The setting brings you back in time and I felt like I was meeting the characters. It's too bad the author died so young and didn't write more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A classic story! One of my favourite classics. Scarlett O'Hara is one of my most disliked heroines, but it is undeniably a story of true, gritty survival.
