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.

    "14 times!"

    The first time I read "Gone With the Wind," was one summer when I was eight years old. My best friend and I each had a copy, and we read it together. We finished it in three days. Since then, I've reread it twelve times, and finally, I decided to let someone read it to me. I'm so glad I did!

    Story
    "Best Narration I've Ever Heard"
    Would you listen to Gone with the Wind again? Why?

    Not only would I, I already have. Linda Stephens gets every accent right, and she's able to read much of the dialogue in ways that truly adds to the story. Having read the book (we've all seen the movie), I was surprised at how much listening to her narration added to the overall experience.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gone with the Wind?

    I was amazed at how well written the book was. I'd assumed it was just a popular classic, never realizing it had actual literary value as well.


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

    First time I've heard her performance, but will definitely look for more.


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

    Wanted to, yes, but that's obviously not possible. I think it took me 2 weeks.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like an epic, sweeping story of romance and war, buy it.

    "A true classic beautifully narrated!"

    This novel is a wonderful tale of love, lust, loss, and the human spirit. The narrator is fantastic and takes you back to the old south in the 1800's.

    Story
    "A strong willed woman ahead of her time"

    Scarlet O'Hara, Rhett Butler, two lusty, opinionated, opportunists: and the dreamy thoughtful man who stands between their love. Basically. Oh yeah and the Civil War; Reconstruction; deprivation; starvation; death; and taxes. Great epic story of 12 tumultuous years and the impact of a war on the way of life of a defeated people. Defeated in war but not in spirit. Ok if you already know the story you will really enjoy reading this. If you read this many years ago, as i had, you will also enjoy the story. The narrator does an excellent job. Its long but worth it. Now as an adult it is interesting to see the difference between today's Democrats & Republicans and their stances during this historical period.

    "I loved the book!"

    I now have a new perspective on the south in regards to their way of life and slavery. "Uncle Tom's Cabin" only showed the worst of the south and "Roots" was just one Author's narrative of his need to understand where he came from. I do believe that slavery needed to be abolished and that America paid a dear price to make it so.
