    Overall

    I didn't find this helpful at all. I was looking for inspiration and motivation, but it was a lot of ancient stories as allegories to what can go wrong in the creative process. No solutions. If you're into ancient myths it might be for you.

    Any additional comments?

    I read this when I was 14, and every summer after that into my twenties, but it's been a long time. It's still such a great romance, with outstanding characters, and you learn a lot of history. It definitely isn't politically correct, but gives a view of how many Southerners saw things at the time of the Civil War and reconstruction. Some of it made me cringe. But a great story about strong women. Rhett Butler is such an interesting character. I understood him much better this time than I ever did when I was younger.
    The narration is fantastic. Linda Stephens does wonders with all the different voices and accents. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
