Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell - Athena
This book was epic. Once again, I was conflicted about giving it a 4 or a 5 on Good Reads. As with before, the deciding factor was if I would reread it again. I wouldn't be against reading it, but then again, I'm not planning on it. It was frustrating and very long at times, but there is no doubt that this is a well written book in many ways and a classic. I started reading this book September 20th, but I really didn't read much of it until the last weekend of September wherein I read 70% of the book from Saturday to Tuesday October 2nd. The Beginning: Not that bad, easy going, lots of exposition, lots of idyllic life of the antebellum South. The Middle: Gripping, dark, and compelling. This was when I started to really hit my next page button. The End: Scarlett gets more and more cruel, ridiculous and unbearable. Book just ends a bit abruptly. Click for my full review.
