The research is well done but there are too many details repeated. I would have enjoyed it more if it were condensed at least 30 per cent.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Jennifer on May 4, 2009
Format: Paperback
I very much enjoyed reading this biography especially the chapters relating to the writing of the GWTW and the novel's whirlwind success. Mitchell is portrayed as a quick-witted and very personable character -- one that everyone would love to know. However, I felt the latter part of the book was pretty unflattering (although perhaps true) with regard to Mitchell's personality and the bitter and malicious picture it painted of her last few years. The author may at times be taking some liberties in his implication of understanding the inner workings of her mind.

Another slight criticism of this book is the enormous amount of typos -- more than in any other book I've ever read! Overall, as someone who holds both the novel and film as her favorites, I would recommend it.

Format: Paperback
At 463 pages, "Southern Daughter" is definitely a well-researched and informative biography. However, the barrage of dates, facts and other figures take away from a smooth, enjoyable reading experience and makes it hard to get through the book at times. My advice is read this book only if you are extremely curious about the life of Margaret Mitchell or have to do research on the topic. Otherwise, look for a more reader-friendly biography.

I loved this book, I visited her home in Atlanta,Ga. and fell in love with Margaret Mitchell and Gone with the Wind. She is a very astonishing lady.
