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.

    "Pulls at all your emotions"

    I love the movie but the book is so much better because it explains who they really are and makes them special.

    "harrowing "

    I loved it and hated it and couldnt not finish it and struggled to finish it. Scarlett Ohara is the worst. The story told is relatively unexciting. Yet the raw emotion captured can't be ignored. You won't understand until you read it.

    The narration was outstanding.

    "Once again Audio and a great book go hand in hand!"

    This book is as breath taking as it was 50 years ago when I read it as a teenager. I listened to it again as an assignment, and I am still in awe at Margaret Mitchell's knowledge of history and her eye for detail. The woman who narrated the book, did a hell of a job. Southern accents are hard to do, and having to do them on each level of "society" she was marvelous.

    "loved "

    I have loved the movie for so long and never read the book, after "reading" the book it gives a new understanding to the movie. I love both now and highly recommend them. It also helps me understand the Ole South, the one my great grandmother and grandma use to tell me about. The story is fiction, but the manners and way of thinking are real, both in the grace of the time and horror of the way a race of people were treated.

    Story
    "Oh, Scarlett!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I saw the movie, loved it! I read the book, I loved it! I listed the audiobook, I also loved it!! One of the greatest love stories that I've ever heard! Beautifully interpreted by Linda Stephens.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Any scene where Scarlett's fury gets irked or where she loses her edge, in spite of herself.


    Any additional comments?

    This is for anyone with a great love of bitter sweet romances with haughty women and semi-charming men. An historical love story set during the Civil War, Scarlett survives it all.

    "Well Read"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Gone with the Wind to be better than the print version?

    I would consider the audio version better than the print version as I could never imagine the voices with so much character as the reader gave.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Great classic romance and history. Makes you think and tears at heart strings.


    Have you listened to any of Linda Stephens’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I have not heard her previously, but I now would like to try her with another book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried a lot to this book. It has the power to rouse sympathy for the Southern people during the Civil War.

    Story
    "A masterpiece"
    Would you listen to Gone with the Wind again? Why?

    Gone with the Wind is the quintessential 20th century novel... there's everything in it, from romance to story, from history to essay... it's a great tapestry that recounts the events surrounding the seeping away of a civilization.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Many scenes are my favourites. Scarlett at Twelve Oaks at the beginning, Scarlett and Rhett at the Yankee prison, Wade's scenes, especially the ones with Rhett. Too many!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    GWTW is already a movie, one of the greatest movie of all time for that matter. It doesn't need any tagline it is pretty much able to stand on its own two feet!


    Any additional comments?

    Linda Stephens reads the bool with great accuracy. All scenes are narrated with the right kind of pacing and most characters are well portrayed.
