Gone with the Wind
Gone with the Wind | Margareth Mitchell
Gone with the Wind is a novel written by Margaret Mitchell, 1st published in 1936. The story is set in Clayton County, GA, & Atlanta during the American Civil War & Reconstruction era. It depicts the experiences of Scarlett O'Hara, the spoiled daughter of a well-to-do plantation owner, who must use every means at her disposal to come out of the poverty she finds herself in after Sherman's March to the Sea. A historical novel, the story is a Bildungsroman or coming-of-age story, with the title taken from a poem written by Ernest Dowson. Gone with the Wind was popular with American readers from the onset & was the top American fiction bestseller in the year it was published & in 1937. As of 2014, a Harris poll found it to be the 2nd favorite book by American readers, just behind the Bible. More than 30 million copies have been printed worldwide.

#Aphabetgame I read this book when I was 18 after I had watched the movie. And while the story of the indomitable Scarlett and Rhett Butler is absorbing it is also very underrated as an anti war book. Also add to that list of underrated anti war books is Captain Correllis mandolin.

#BookReport - The windowsill has remained mostly static this week. I always forget how nice weather cuts into reading time!! I've had so many outside projects underway, but things are starting to come together. I've included a picture of the side garden so you can see where my reading time has really been spent!! I checked off two of my chapter-a-day(ish) reads this week (bottom picture), but only one windowsill book, although I'm almost ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) halfway through Cress. Gone With the Wind continues to ruin my life with its absurdly long chapters, obnoxious Scarlet, and overall completely depressing story. But Scarlet isn't the only one who can grit her teeth and be stubborn, and I'm determined to finish this one, even if I hate it all the way! In contrast, I'm thoroughly enjoying the Jane Austen book, Treasure Island, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (surprisingly!), and #DraculaDaily.⬇ 9mo
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) The Ottomans is a bit of a struggle but it is quite interesting even if it is a bit dense. I've been reading it at breakfast, though, so maybe that's the problem! 😂

Only one week until vacation - gotta decide which of these books are coming with me when we head north!!

@Cinfhen

marleed Your garden is gorgeous! 9mo
Ruthiella Your side garden is lovely! 😍 It‘s been a couple of decades since I read GwtW but I do remember being mostly exasperated by Scarlet, but then every so often she‘d redeem herself with her grit and gumption. 9mo
JackOBotts Your garden is lovely! 💜 9mo
wordslinger42 Oh gosh, this does not encourage me to conquer Gone With the Wind 😂😂😂 9mo

Suet624 How sweet your side yard is. 9mo
Cinfhen I LOVE your side garden 🤩🤩🤩I‘d love to see more garden shots 🥰maybe it‘s time you remove Scarlett from the window 😂vacation time- yay!!!! Enjoy 9mo
TheAromaofBooks @MoonWitch94 - We are off to Michigan's Upper Peninsula!! Neither of us has been there before and I'm excited about seeing Lake Superior. Anticipating chilly/possibly damp weather, but that just means more reading time 😂 I have definitely been known to load up a milk crate of books to take on vacation before. The paranoia of running out of reading material is REAL!! 9mo
TheAromaofBooks @marleed @JackOBotts @Suet624 - Thank you!!! It's a lot of work but so lovely to enjoy. The tall shrubs are hibiscus with double blossoms and look absolutely GORGEOUS when they are in bloom!! 9mo
TheAromaofBooks @Ruthiella - I do have a reluctant admiration for Scarlet who really does get stuff done no matter what it takes. But since she is literally the most selfish person I've ever read as MC, it makes it difficult to like her - literally everything she does is to protect herself, even caring for other people traces back to what they give her. She's ruthlessly practical and does literally whatever it takes to keep things going, but... not very likable😂 9mo
TheAromaofBooks @wordslinger42 - So many people love this one, but I've found it rather depressing (considering the background), not even remotely romantic, & Scarlet, while full of grit, determination, & bulldogged endurance, is incredibly self-absorbed and not someone I find particularly likable. It's still really interesting from a historical perspective of both the story itself and the time it was written, so it's worthwhile to me... but not one I'll reread😂 9mo
TheAromaofBooks @Cinfhen - You know I'm usually about bailing on books that aren't working, but I really do want to finish this classic. It's very interesting from a historical perspective, even if Scarlet makes me so mad sometimes!!! The side garden is coming along very happily. We got the ponds cleaned out today so the fish and frogs (we bought the fish & then they multiplied; the frogs brought themselves haha) are pleased. I love watching them swim around!! 9mo
TheAromaofBooks @Bookwormjillk - We have had SO MUCH RAIN in April!!! This week was the first time we've had more than two consecutive days without rain in I can't remember how long! Hopefully you can get out in the garden soon. It's been honestly delightful to get my hands in some dirt this week!!! 9mo
MoonWitch94 @TheAromaofBooks Have a fantastic trip!!! That sounds lovely. I bring a bag of books with me on every vacation (even if I‘m flying)! It‘s my thing. And then I buy one somewhere along my way, too. #bookwormproblems 9mo
TheAromaofBooks @MoonWitch94 - Yes!! I love buying at least one book on every trip. It's so fun to have a “useful“ memento!! 9mo
CindyMyLifeIsLit Your side garden is beautiful—what a lovely reading spot! I hope you find some enjoyment in GWtW. It‘s one of my favorites, partly because Scarlett was my first ever unlikeable but interesting protagonist. It looks like Cary Elwes‘s As You Wish is checked off! Did you finish it? How did you like it? We use Princess Bride to teach archetypes and I love telling the kids the “behind-the-scenes” stories! 😁 9mo
TheAromaofBooks @CindyMyLifeIsLit - I do have a reluctant admiration for Scarlet, but it doesn't keep me from wanting to shake her half the time 😂 I absolutely loved As You Wish, it was just so warm and friendly. I would have loved more details and more stories, but thoroughly enjoyed what was there - already passed it on to my parents who are also huge fans of the movie!! 8mo

1-14 July 2021 (audiobook)
I watched the movie so often in my childhood and teens and, as a hopeless romantic, wished for an alternate ending. I also read the book and the sequel, Scarlett, which even as a teen I knew was not great but was willing to forgive to see Rhett and Scarlett together.
Reading today, I was shocked by the depiction of the klan and the relentless racism. ⬇️

mjtwo Yes, I still gave it a pick - honestly I love the character development, the depiction of the fall of a civilisation and Rhett - but it does make me very uncomfortable and there were a number of parts that were difficult to read. How should books from earlier eras be judged? Can they still be enjoyed when they depict a view of history that is so biased and offensive, and certainly not aligned with my values and beliefs? I am not sure. (edited) 2y

This book was a sweet torture, at one minute you are completely thrown off course by the startling intensity of the passion described, and the next you are made to shamefully submit your desire for more by the painful shunning out through raw practicality of life. I was simultaneously crying, shouting, happy, frustrated and all the more perplexed by how the events in the story unfolded. It definitely took a heavy toll on my heart 💔

While browsing my bookcase, I remembered I had this older edition of Gone with the Wind that I picked up a couple years ago in NC. 1954 Perma Book edition.

A first-edition copy of Margaret Mitchell‘s Gone with the Wind is noteworthy in its own right, but this one contains a secret: a hidden compartment used to conceal a .32-caliber pistol. The FBI's Laboratory Division received this artifact in 1941, but they were unable to identify the weapon.

A true American classic, Gone With The Wind truly does live up to its reputation. It is a magnificent, page-turner of a book, and although quite a long book, kept me interested from the very 1st page. With the backdrop of the American Civil War and the years of recovery, the glorious Scarlett, this story's heroine, is not a conventional southern lady, as she overcomes many trials and tribulations with what can only be described as true "grit".

Freespirit It‘s a wonderful story! 2y

I‘ve never actually seen all of the film, just snatches back pre DVD and video days, when my mother watched it on TV when it was shown annually...I have read the book and while Mitchell was an apologist for the South and racist, the story is worth reading, if the reader is willing to take that baggage on board. And it has an excellent doomed #lovetriangle.

🤨 Meanwhile I‘m calm and happy as I look over my overstuffed bookshelves in my craft room. To each their own I guess?

Enjoying some outdoor time now that the weather is getting better. I bought this many years ago at a garage sale and it‘s on a scratch-off poster I have for “100 Books to Read Bucketlist,” so now I‘m working on checking this one off.

Reviewsbylola One of my favorite books ever!! There will never be a couple quite like Scarlett and Rhett. ❤️ 3y

1. Scarlett O‘Hara Hamilton Kennedy Butler — Scarlett is my all-time favorite book character but she is very flawed. She can be very selfish but also stays strong for her family and takes care of everybody. Her strength is probably what I like about her the most ❤️
2. People bending pages or creasing the spines 😣
3. Hmm well GWTW is out of the question so I‘d go with my 2nd favorite book, The Help 🤓

"All wars are sacred," he said. "To those who have fight them. If the people who started wars didn't make them sacred, who would be foolish enough to fight?"
