Gone with the Wind wasn’t an international best seller for nothing!
When I was a junior in high school my friend Jill mentioned she’d just read Gone with the Wind in THREE DAYS. This wasn’t for a school assignment or anything, but just for fun. I’d seen the Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable movie, of course, but had never even thought of reading the original book. On Jill’s recommendation, I picked up the NINE HUNDRED AND SIXTY page book at the library and was done in less than a week. I remember staying up — on a school night no less — until 3 AM to finish. It’s that good.
This is the classic love/hate story of Scarlet O’Hara and Rhett Butler but quite a bit different from the 1939 film — more marriages, more children, more Civil War. You’ll love it! If you’ve never read this Pulitzer Prize winner, now is the time.
High School reading level, 960 pages, Civil War, Pulitzer Prize Winner, Published in 1936.
