A 16-year-old gal sees a man she has not seen in TWO YEARS and decides she...LOVES HIM? She says, "Let's do this," and he declines. She hooks up with a clueless loser for revenge. Long lumbering slog of her and her encounter with Butler and pumping out THREE CHILDREN! My favoite character was Archie. This could probably not be read outloud in public for fear of violent response.

"Tomorrow is another day." "My dear, I don't give a d---." "As God is my witness, I'll never go hungry again!" There are so many iconic lines in this book, that I half felt I'd already read it before I finally did this year. The tale of a young Southern woman who finds her very way of life dissolving around her during the Civil War - and simultaneously finds un-dreamed-of reserves of strength within herself - this book stands as a testament to a very specific period and perspective in US history.

This sweeping saga of the American Civil War as experienced by Southern belle Scarlet O'Hara is a classic for good reason. At times it was a difficult read, as it's clear that author Margaret Mitchell was privy to a particular narrative in her Southern upbringing. Nonetheless, the story retains a beauty and elegance.

The American Civil War was a pretty dreadful time to live. This classical literature book (very thick and full of content) shows the horrors of living through this time, through the eyes of Scarlett O'Hara. Throughout the book, her character development from a girl who had it all to a girl who lost it all is fabulously detailed. Her determination and steely personality gets her through a lot, but that is precisely what blinds her from the affection of someone who loved her dearly. I think that while her stubbornness may have been attractive to some, it was a bit irksome to read. This book has broken many hearts, and will continue to do so for a long, long time. 4/5 Stars.

I had read this book at an early age. This book was impressive and I liked it very much. The main character is a young girl named Scarlett. She once fell in love with a man but he married his cousin and then joined the army. Then Scarlett and his pregnant cousin began running away from panic and bad things. They have been through so many things and their relationship became really close. Scarlett found herself care about the girl. During the time, Scarlett attracted a few men and one of them loved her deeply. Scarlett turned to him for help when she needed money urgently. I would give this book a 4 out of 5.

It was hard putting this book down. I read it every free minute I had between work, after work, when I awoke. Despite their flaws, I grew to care for many of the characters. I admired Scarlett's passionate determination and Melanie's unwavering loyalty and enjoyed Rhett's sardonic humor.

What an amazing book. I am in awe.
