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, 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!

    Story
    "Overall, an excellent book and reading."

    I understand that this book was one of the biggest hits of the early 20th century, and now I know why. It was epic, touching, and broad in its scope. Even without having seen the movie, the characters we're ones you will probably never forget. It struck me as interesting, too, that none of the characters we're ones that you would wholly want to emulate. Everyone has their flaws.

    I felt that for a narrator, this was as difficult a book as I have ever seen. However, I felt that Linda Stephens did a very good job. She is also one of the very few narrators who can sing when needed, and have it come as a welcome surprise.

    As I am familiar with southern accents, I thought it interesting that she tried to differentiate some of the characters by their accents. She wasn't wildly successful, but still did a fairly good job. It seems to always be difficult for women to do men's voices without them all seeming the same. She differentiated them as well as any other woman I have heard.

    Overall, I felt it was an excellent book and reading.

    Even though I have read this many times I was just as excited to finish each chapter as I was the first time. Linda really brought the characters and story to life

    "I love everything about this recording."

    I have listened to this recording twice now and it is phenomenal. The story of Scarlett and Rhett is one of my favorites. The movie, if you've seen it, is very good but the book is so much more. Scarlett O'Hara: selfish brat or woman ahead of her time? I cannot recommend this enough.

    "PERFECT JUST PERFECT!!"
    Any additional comments?

    This story was a wonder to listen to. It sounds like several people are reading to you. I listened to the entire book at 1.25 speed and it was perfect. The story itself is such a detailed and intriguing story that I stole time from everything else to listen and finish it. My only wish is that Margaret Mitchell would have written more books for us to enjoy.
