I really enjoyed this book. It gave me a lot of insight into her book., Gone with the Wind. I felt like it was more of a biography of Gone with the Wind than of her life. She was greatly influenced by what happened in her young life, her family and her surroundings the people she met. The characters in the book were definitely based on her life. She was feisty and determined. She didn't believe that her book would be such a sensation. It made me want to read the book again. I would definitely recommend it
I was pleasantly surprised with this book, only because I wasn't expecting Margaret Mitchell to be who she really was in real life. She definitely patterned Scarlett O'Hara after herself. It is a great biography about this eloquent writer of GWTW. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Will now re-read Gone With the Wind from a different point of view. Did not realize how much research Margaret Mitchell did to get the accuracy correct of the Civil War battles, etc. Even down to the time of day and weather conditions were detailed.
Interesting read on the author of Gone With the Wind. The similarities between Scarlett O'Hara and Margaret Mitchell are uncanny. It's evident that Margaret Mitchell's life experiences helped shape her characterizations.
I really liked the writing style and the information was very helpful. I did, however, feel like it got thin at the very end, but her life did end abruptly, so there. I would like to have known more about the sales of the book after her death and her brother taking over control.
What a fascinating book! It was so eye-opening to find out about Margaret Mitchell's life. What a very, very interesting person. Beautifully written and very easy to read. I so much enjoyed it. I am going to start re-reading it again tonight - just for the fun of it.
