    It takes guts to make your main character spoiled, selfish, and stupid, someone without any redeeming qualities, and write an epic novel about her But it works for two reasons First of all you wait for justice to fall its merciless blow with one of the most recognized lines in cinema frankly my dear, I don t give a damn , but you end with a broken and somewhat repentant character a

    I honestly do not know whether to give this book 5 stars for being one of the most completely engrossing, shocking, and emotionally absorbing pieces of literature ever written, or to give it 0 stars for being the most tragic, unendingly upsetting, disturbing book I ve ever read I read the last 50 pages or so literally with my mouth wide open, unable to believe that it was really going to

    My mother wouldn t let me read Gone With the Wind until I was 16 A few years ago I was at a cocktail party and they asked the trivia question What was the first line of GWtW I knew the answer My husband asked, How did you know that He d lived with me how many decades I told him about my mom s restriction and how, when I finally opened the book, I was stunned by the first sentence I had seen the movie and Scarlett was beautiful,
