Review

I just finished Gone with the Wind. I know it`s a big book, but for over 1000 pages, it`s a fairly easy read!

This is the story of Scarlett O`Hara, a Southern belle. When the Civil War breaks out, her entire life changes, and her world is turned upside down. This Southern belle, however, is definitely a survivor!

I liked this book, probably because I heartily enjoyed hating Scarlett O`Hara. I didn`t like her at all, but she makes for a great read! She was amazing, though, in the way she just hangs on to life and grabs it with both hands. The author (Margaret Mitchel) did a really fantastic job on that.

OK, I`ve gotta say it. Other than Mammy, (Scarlett`s nurse) my absolute favorite character was Rhett Butler, a mysterious man from Charleston with a dark past, and a cynical sense of humor. He does have a soft side, though, as you will find if you read the book. The movie is also great, I just loved it!!! My score: 9/10!
