This is such a fantastic story, full of drama and visuals. I watched the movie long ago and read the book a few years ago. So good, just as I had remembered it.

I was VERY surprised at how much I loved this book! It's a monster of a 1000+ page book, but worth the time to read. I learned a lot about the Civil War by reading this book. Very gruesome and graphic, not for the squeamish! Nice love story as well. Definitely highly recommended.

Great novel that captures the period of Civil War through a romantic story. Rhett Butler's characterisation is perfection.

A long, complex and well developed story line set in the Civil War era. The book shows the complexities of relationships between a man and a woman.
