Incredible story. Wonderful narration. A must read for any student of literature. As a fan of the movie I was apprehensive about the narration. Ms. Stephens did not disappoint.
I have read this story many times, watched the movie on the big screen and curled up in bed with popcorn and a tissue box on rainy days when a girl needs a good touch of romance and dreams of making a better world.
At first I was reluctant to listen to the story as audio, but the voice of Linda Stephens was spell binding. Though I have read this book, the way she told it, it was like the first time I had actually heard all the words, and the words are beautiful as you visualize the scenes. Linda makes this book so alive and personal.
Yes, it will always be a book I love, crafted by a wonderful story tell, but I will never bother to read it again, I will, however listen to it again!
I have seen the movie, but loved the book. Was well written and completely captivating. It filled in a lot of gaps that the movie left. I will be listening to this one again.
This heart wrenching story is narrated so masterfully that I was listened to it 3 times and I'm not done. It's an emotional roller coaster and a glimpse into the civil war era and southern life. I highly recommend it.
The longest audiobook I have done thus far ( 49 hours & change) but well worth it. I went through withdrawal when it was over. I have never read the book or seen the movie. Margaret Mitchell enabled me to understand the deep origin of racism. In many ways I found the stereotypes, irrational fear, & general misconceptions about blacks who were enslaved or free to be not much different than the present. Sad but true - the more things change the more they stay the same.
