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.

    "Narrator amazing"

    One of the few narrators who voice men as well as women, reads accents beautifully, and acts with restraint and wisdom.

    "Phenomenal!!!"

    If you liked the movie, you will LOVE the book!!! The movie actually followed the book quite well... I was impressed by the overall similarity between the two. The book just provided more details and made the story all the more colorful.

    British ex-pat living in NC. Have more personalities than Sybil which is reflected in my choice of books! Frustrated writer at heart.

    "Forget The Movie. You MUST Read THIS CLASSIC!"

    I purchased this 'on a whim'. Took months to get around to listening to it as I really thought that it was going to be a little dull. Oh Boy was I wrong. It was a GLORIOUS experience. I, like most people have seen the movie and have read the book but this Recorded Books® is sublime.

    I listened to it at every opportunity that I got including three hours in the dentist chair. So engrossed was I that I did not feel a thing!

    Linda Stephens jumped from gender to gender, slipped with ease from each character, her accents could not be faulted and her singing voice gave such life to this volume.

    I could not recommend a book more.

    Happy listening!

    "Wow wow wow"

    I remember bits and pieces of this story from watching the movie as a child. Fell in love with the book. I enjoyed the historical relevances that peeked thru every now and then and being from Georgia I could see it thru the periods eyes. I love the raw determination of Scarlett and I can only pray she got Rhet back!

    "BEST narrator"

    The performer reading this novel was the best I have ever heard. Not only is it the best book of all time, political issues aside....... this performance was the absolute best.
