""Gone with the Wind" is one of those rare books that we never forget. We read it when we're young and fall in love with the characters, then we watch the film and read the book again and watch the film again and never get tired of revisiting an era that is the most important in our history. Rhett and Scarlet and Melanie and Ashley and Big Sam and Mammy and Archie the convict are characters who always remain with us, in the same way that Twain's characters do. No one ever forgets the scene when Scarlet wanders among the wounded in the Atlanta train yard; no one ever forgets the moment Melanie and Scarlet drag the body of the dead Federal soldier down the staircase, a step at a time. "Gone with the Wind" is an epic story. Anyone who has not read it has missed one of the greatest literary experiences a reader can have." -- James Lee Burke, bestselling author of "The Tin Roof Blowdown " --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
Margaret Mitchell was born in Atlanta, Georgia, the daughter of an attorney who was president of the Atlanta Historical Society. She married in 1925, and spent the following ten years putting down on paper the stories she had heard about the Civil War. The result was Gone With The Wind, first published in 1936. It won the Pulitzer price, sold over ten million copies, was translated into eighteen languages and was later made into one of the best-loved films of all time starring Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable. This book, a record bestseller, was her only published work. She died in 1949. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

The only Orwell book I had previously read was Homage to Catalunia, this was the first fictional one. The story is interesting and the performance is agreeable.Published 9 hours ago by Ines Costa

The dystopian genre is easily one of my least favorite genres in literature. However, every genre, no matter how bad it is, does have its gem. 1984 is that gem. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Graham Wilhauk
Orwell's 1984 is a prime example of a classic novel that should not be forgotten. Highly recommended to anyone!Published 1 day ago by Heather Petrovsky
