Gone With the Wind

Posted by lori . 3 Comments

As I neared the end of this epic novel (both in scope and size), I found myself wishing that it would just go on and on.  I was truly sad to finish it.  Margaret Mitchell draws you into the story and myth of a unique era in American history and populates it with characters you’ll never forget.  Even if you’re familiar with the movie, reading the book will not disappoint.

The movie is beautiful and legendary.  Gone With the Wind won 8 competitive Academy Awards in 1939 for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Color Cinematography, Best Film Editing and Best Art Direction.
