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.

    "A classic"

    This is a great book. At first, I wasn't sure of the narrator, but she slips into the southern accent, the slave's talk with such ease and talent, I really enjoyed listening to her. Good thing as this book is over 49 hrs.! They should use this book in school, just to emphasize how far we have come in our society. I love this book.

    "Seriously, you want me to review GWTW?"
    What made the experience of listening to Gone with the Wind the most enjoyable?

    The rich language and story is familiar but it is so long that one always forgets parts of it.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The civil war aftermath.


    If you could take any character from Gone with the Wind out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Mammy. She saw it all.


    Any additional comments?

    Gone with the Wind is a classic because it is an amazing story and is well written. If you have never read it, then listen to it. It is absorbing and important as well as just plain entertaining.

    "My first review"

    Not just a reading, but truly a great performance by Linda Stevens. I can't imagine that it could be done better.

    "Delightful reading experience"
    Would you listen to Gone with the Wind again? Why?

    I usually don't listen to audible books multiple times, but this one was quite enjoyable


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Scarlet and Rhett are of course the main characters. I love their interactions with one another and especially how they are unable to actually converse until the end of the book when then it is too late for their reconciliation.


    What does Linda Stephens bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Linda Stephens is a fantastic reader with very believable voices for each character, whether mild and sweet Melanie or rough and angry Rhett in an encounter with Scarlet.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutley not. This book is hours and hours long, which I love. It is something to savor and enjoy for days.


    Any additional comments?

    Even though I had seen the movie multiple times, the book was so much better as it gave the thought process of the characters and did much more to develop all the characters. I found myself wanting the story to end differently even though I knew there would not be a reconciliation and love grow between Scarlet and Rhett.

    "Narrator fails at voicing Rhett"

    The narrator actually does ok with the other characters - Scarlett especially. She actually sounds a lot like Vivien Leigh and she has the Southern drawl down pat - however when it comes to Rhett, she fails miserably.

    Rhett sounds like he's about to fall asleep whenever he speaks - or maybe he just sounds like he's half dead....because of that, I've been able to immediately identify when he's speaking - which isn't good! The rest of the production is good - this is a HUGE book and I'm sure it was difficult to keep voicing after all those hours.

    Would I buy it again? Probably.

    "Outstanding book"

    To say that I enjoyed this book from beginning to end would be an understatement. I found myself intensely engaged, Linda Stephens is a talented reader.
