I love this book! I started reading it expecting to be bored and have to trudge through such a huge novel, but I was hooked and enthralled from the very beginning. I couldn't put the book down and was genuinely sad when it was over. I will miss Scarlet and Rhett and all of the other characters I came to feel like I knew. The author has an incredible way with words and she really knows how to keep the story moving along. Anytime I started to feel even slightly bored or that the story was starting to drag a little, BAM there comes some new crisis to grasp my attention and keep me turning pages well beyond my bedtime. I'd give this one 10 stars if I could! Highly recommended!
