It doesn't matter how many times I've read GWTW I just don't get tired or bored with it.
The audio version is amazing. The reader does such a fab job of it and her accent and different voices are unsurpassed. Since we have always identified Scarlett with Vivian Leigh and Rhett Butler with Clark Gable, the reader does not disappoint us since she nails those voices and accents. Absolutely an amazing reader.
I seem to read the book and then watch the movie. The dialog in the movie follows the book almost verbatim so many times but the book is pretty different from the movie. And the book is pretty darn racy for something written so many years ago! Margaret Mitchell was way ahead of her time writing so openly about issues that still face us today, i.e., sex. She manages to write about sex without being graphic or offensive.
Something that has always bothered me is not about GWTW but about the 'sequel' Scarlett. It is based on the movie and not but book. Although it's good I really would have liked to find out what happened to Scarletts children since they don't exist in the GWTW movie or in the book or movie called Scarlett.
This book is it! Just can't get better than this!
