Publisher's Summary

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: darkly handsome Rhett Butler and flirtatious Scarlett O'Hara. Behind them stand their gentler counterparts: Ashley Wilkes and Melanie Hamilton. As the lives and affairs of these absorbing characters play out against the tumult of the Civil War, Gone With the Wind reaches dramatic heights that have swept generations of fans off their feet.

Having lived in Atlanta for many years, narrator Linda Stephens has an authentic ear for the dialects of that region. Get ready to hear Gone With the Wind exactly as it was written: every word beautifully captured in a spectacular unabridged audio production.

    "What a book"

    I realize now I didn't understand the characters very well from just watching the movie, what drove them to their path. We all do things in life that doesn't always make sense, and it's hard to understand what drives us. We are all complex beings and this book tells the story of a few... Excellent, I enjoyed it immensely

    "A classic"

    I've seen the movie, read the novel twice and now listened to the audible version. I got a lot more out of the audible than I thought I would. I love the historical fiction in this classic.

    Story
    "Phenomenal Narration!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Gone with the Wind to be better than the print version?

    Yes! She does the accents very well! And when I read the book, I stumbled over the slaves' speech. Linda Stephens really seems to understand the characters and how they express their emotions.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rhett Butler. While I love many traditions of "polite society", I think his contempt for society is amusing.


    What does Linda Stephens bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She does the accents very well! And when I read the book, I stumbled over the slaves' speech. Linda Stephens really seems to understand the characters and how they express their emotions.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Scarlett made up her mind that she would never be hungry again.


    Any additional comments?

    Love this story!

    "Loved it"

    This book may be long but I did not want it to end. The ending left me hanging I wish it would have went on a little longer to find out what happened to Scarlett.

    Story
    "Everything I expected & more"

    Knowing the story for many years but only from the movie, I was anxious to read/hear what if always been told - that the book is so much better. Margaret Mitchell's descriptive writing was wonderful - an obvious inspiration for the scenes in the movie. But the performance of the narrator and the many voices in impeccable southern accents is what kept me listening with anticipation.
