I am so doing this. I just started reading Gone With The Wind, and I could not be more excited.
An epic love story set during one of my favorite times in history. Yep, I am a civil war nut.
Big dresses, southern accents, people thinking they are better than everyone because they are rich, and that was just in the movie.
The first words of the book start like this…
“Scarlett O’Hara was not beautiful, but men seldom realized it when caught by her charm…”
One of the most recognized fictional characters, and her creator says she is not beautiful. Also, I find it ironic that some as stunning as Vivien Leigh played her in the movie.
I am excited to see how the book is different. I am hoping for more Scarlett and Rhett interaction. Will Melanie annoy me like she did in the movie?
While I read, I most certainly will be thinking about this guy.
Seriously ladies, could he be more handsome?
Just for fun, some clips from the movie.
Considering there are over 1000 pages in the book, I better get to reading.
