Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
read 5/29/2010 - 6/5/2010
I am so torn in regard to this book. I loved, loved, loved it, but was so disillusioned by the ending. I wanted closure! And quite honestly, I wanted a happy ending. I guess there are no happy endings for Scarlett. Regardless of the ending, this was such a great book, and I'm glad I read it. The character development almost reminded me of Dickens' character development (though not quite as impressive). Mitchell did such a great job of making the Civil War-era South come alive to me.
This book was part of my 2010 summer reading program.
