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.

    "An American Classic"

    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.

    Story
    "A timless book"

    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!

    "Outstanding"

    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.

    "One of the best of the best"

    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.

    "A Classic!"

    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.

    "A classic, great performance."

    Couldn't stop listening to it, even though it is very long I didn't want it to end! The narrator did a great job!
