If you liked the movie, you will LOVE the book!!! The movie actually followed the book quite well... I was impressed by the overall similarity between the two. The book just provided more details and made the story all the more colorful.
British ex-pat living in NC. Have more personalities than Sybil which is reflected in my choice of books! Frustrated writer at heart.
I purchased this 'on a whim'. Took months to get around to listening to it as I really thought that it was going to be a little dull. Oh Boy was I wrong. It was a GLORIOUS experience. I, like most people have seen the movie and have read the book but this Recorded Books® is sublime.
I listened to it at every opportunity that I got including three hours in the dentist chair. So engrossed was I that I did not feel a thing!
Linda Stephens jumped from gender to gender, slipped with ease from each character, her accents could not be faulted and her singing voice gave such life to this volume.
I could not recommend a book more.
I remember bits and pieces of this story from watching the movie as a child. Fell in love with the book. I enjoyed the historical relevances that peeked thru every now and then and being from Georgia I could see it thru the periods eyes. I love the raw determination of Scarlett and I can only pray she got Rhet back!
I always like reading, or listening to books before watching the motion picture. Now I can't wait to watch this one. Buy this book and enjoy the a story.
The performer reading this novel was the best I have ever heard. Not only is it the best book of all time, political issues aside....... this performance was the absolute best.
The narration on this is masterful. Very well done.
An interesting perspective on the South, slavery, and the Civil War. Packed with gossipy drama and intrigue. Vivid characters. Moral dilemmas. I honestly cared about Scarlet and couldn't wait to find out what poor decision she would make next.
