    Description

    When Gone with the Wind appeared in 1936, it became on overnight sensation. Nothing like it in American literature had ever been seen. It went on to win the Pulitzer Prize and become one of the most celebrated films of all time. It has sold more than 30 million copies worldwide and been translated into 27 languages. 

    Gone with the Wind is both an historical novel and an examination of the bewildering changes that swept Georgia in the 1860s. The novel begins just before the Civil War opens and ends in 1871. During those intervening years Mitchell’s novel illustrates the struggles of the Georgians who lived through the Civil War and Reconstruction eras. 

    Here are the most famous characters in American literature: handsome, controversial Rhett Butler; spoiled, flirtatious Scarlett O'Hara; aristocratic gentleman Ashley Wilkes; and saintly Melanie Hamilton. As the lives of these and other equally fascinating characters play out against the chaotic background of war and Reconstruction, Gone with the Wind scales heights of human drama that have rarely been reached.

    Commentaires

    “The narrative is excruciatingly vivid. For days after reading Gone with the Wind, the reader lives the experiences of the characters Margaret Mitchell has given the world.” (London Times)

    “No reader can come away without a sense of the tragedy that overcame the planting families in 1865 and without a better understanding of the background of present-day Southern life.” (The New York Times)

    Gone with the wind

    Magnifique diction. J’ai particulièrement apprécié les voix de Rhett, Scarlett, Mammie et tous les autres personnages bien différenciés et à la voix reflétant leur personnalité. Grand merci à M. Griffin

    Reading from the perspective of 2021

    While the views often expressed by the author about black people are offensive; she does explain the sentiments of the cotton planters of the period. During the period preceding the American civil war never, were women sp rated in such a low regard but the two heroines emerge as as feminist icons of the period. Margaret Mitchell of course writes with irony about the mores and manners of the time. The details about the war are most interesting.

    Bad choice for a reader

    I do not understand why a man has been chosen to read a book where the main character is a young woman. It sounds ridiculous when "she" speaks whereas she is far from ridiculous. It looks like a machist choice

    Wow

    What magnificent story and narration. Charlton Griffin made the story come to life so beautifully and vividly that I happily and delightfully lost myself in it from start to finish.
    Thank you.

    What a tragic story and life.

    The reader of this novel was not enjoyable to listen to. He made the womens' voices sound horrible and ignorant.
    What an awful story of love and loss. It is rare for one growing up in a ranching community in Montana to grasp the need and reliance the southern farmers had for slaves. I have always wondered why they couldn't do the work themselves as us Northern farmer/ranchers do. However, after reading Gone With the Wind, I do have a better for understanding for the plantation owners.

    Amazing book and the best narrator ever!

    This is a great book and Charlton Griffin is the perfect narrator. He brings the characters to life in a way that is unimaginable. He completely immerses you in this world and his narration make me cherish this book. Thank you Mr. Griffin.

    Hated for the Book to End

    I was truly sad for this book to end and 47 hours was taunting to think of listening!!!!!I have to admit I was skeptical at first of hearing any other voice but Clark Gable but Charlton Griffin did a beauty job with all characters. He brought new life to my very favorite movie and book.. Thank you!!

    They sure lost a war

    Shelby Foote's immortal line about the Confederacy acts as a kind of epigraph to this epic. It would be interesting to compare and contrast GWTW with its Union-side counterpart, Little Women, in a study of what it means for a nation, and particularly a nation's women, to "sure lose a war", as opposed to "win" one. (As severe as the privations were for the former Confederates, they were as nothing compared to those of other war-losing aristocracies such as those of Russia and Germany.) I naturally took an interest in this political side of the novel, but (for those unaware, pardon my spoiler) it does have a romantic side, too. Scarlett O'Hara is an American original, ruthless and opportunistic as any pioneer in a wilderness, Her marital machinations make sense for a 19th century woman determined to claw her way out of poverty, and her secret devotion to Ashley is the one exception to her self-absorption that proves the rule. Scarlett's thoroughly modern relationship to Rhett, the prototype for a thousand Mills and Boon heroes and the stand-in for modern sensibility, is satisfyingly convoluted. The postwar period dragged a little... the novel could easily have been reduced by 25% without sacrificing its impact. Charlton Griffin's reading is first rate, astonishingly convincing on the many female voices that are so integral to the novel while losing none of its resonant masculinity on the narrative passages. Overall I found it well worth the time spent. A word of warning: be prepared to hear in your mind's ear behind the entire narration a randomly alternating medley of the sweeping theme from the movie adaptation, and the Beach Boys' cheesy rendition of "Them Old Cotton Fields Back Home".

    Awful narration

    This novel is a favorite of mine, read many times over the years. The audible narrator butchers it; I couldn’t finish it. Horrible.

    Wow! What a book!

    This easily has to be one of the best books of all time, making it easy to understand why it led to the most popular movie of all time. The careful wording, the vivid poetic descriptions and the crystal clear characterizations were amazing. And this narrator was amazingly talented. He did all the male, female, negro, gentry, and cracker voices all with distinction and genuinely sounded like different people with different accents.

    Breathtaking!

    The book is ofcourse a timeless classic. The narration is outstanding - but I wish Scarlett's voice was done a bit differently.

    A classic

    I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. I was not a big fan of the female voices though.

    I loved this story. Much to be learned from Scarlet and Rhett. This is a story you can read over and over.
