Gone With the Wind

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Margaret Mitchell

Narrated By: Linda Stephens

Publisher: Recorded Books

Duration: 49 hours 12 minutes

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.

    I am almost 50 years old and have not seen the movie before. I wanted to read the book first and I finally have. This book was wonderful. I don't think I could of appreciated it as much if I had read it as a much younger woman, so I am glad that for many reasons I didn't get the chance to read it until now. I understand why it is such a well known book. It is very well written, and the characters are full and alive. The story is meaningful and engaging. I laughed, bawled, grew frusterated and angry...I was very emotionally involved! The narrator was EXCELLENT.I highly recommend this book and although I know the book version is always much better then the film, I look forward to the movie as well. I will be reading this book again. Something I rarely do.
