    Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Literature, Margaret Mitchell's great novel of the South is one of the most popular books ever written. Within six months of its publication in 1936, Gone With the Wind had sold a million copies. To date, it has been translated into 25 languages, and more than 28 million copies have been sold. Here are the characters that have become symbols of passion and desire....

    "I have to agree with others about poor narration."
    Overall

    I love this book and have read the print book many times. Unfortunately the narrator's pacing is positively AWFUL. The lingering between sentences, particularly during the dialogue is absolutely irritating. I had listened to the small sample, but it took a longer listening (meaning I had to purchase it) to find that the reader is terrible.

    I love this book, but this reader is very offputting. If your mp3 player has a speed option, I would suggest you use it. It helps this reader's plodding pacing, but it's still annoying in parts.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It is a truth universally acknowledged that anyone looking for a great listen won’t be able to resist Jane Austen’s delightful classic of love and manners in Regency England. Jane Austen's story of Mrs. Bennet's finding husbands for her daughters is told with wit and charm. A must for lovers of good literature. Commuters Library presents Pride and Prejudice read by Kate Reading.

    A thoroughly enjoyable reading by Kate Reading. This is my favorite Austen book and Reading's voices lit the story up.
