I was somewhat disappointed with this book. It seems that a lot of the text was Ms. Haskell's personal opinions, especially about the south of the 20s and 30s and about Margaret Mitchell. I expected something more objective.

I GOT THIS FOR MY WIFE AND SHE WAS VERY PLEASED WITH THE SERVICE BY THE VENDOR AND THE BOOK ITSELF.

It never ceases to amaze me when self-appointed "experts" attempt to analyze a well-loved book, historical figure or period in time, and totally botch the job. Ms. Haskell lost me on Page 3 of the book, when she referred to Scarlett's mother, Ellen, as being from Charleston -- when she was from Savannah! After that, I couldn't read this book without a healthy dose of skepticism. Ms. Haskell, clearly, has an agenda (as in feminist) to promote about GWTW. The fact that she has likened the monetary performance of the movie to that of "Grand Theft Auto", totally bewildered me. By Page 30 it was in my "donate to library" pile. Do yourself a favor...if you love GWTW, DON'T buy this book. Buy Anne Edwards' bio of Margaret Mitchell ("Road to Tara") instead. Ms. Haskell's spotty literary credits (one book but a lot of lectures on "the role of women in film") make her hardly a worthy critic of this great classic.

This was a gift for my mother. It arrived as promised - timely, etc.
I will be giving it to her tomorrow, and I know she'll love it.

I was VERY disappointed in this book. It is not what I had read about it in a magazine. I found it boring and she did a lot of repeating. I am sorry I bought the book and I am a book lover and keep all my books if they are good. Sorry about how I feel about this book, maybe someone else will like it very much.

It seemed overly critical of the author and the book " Gone With The Wind".
