I read this book in French when I was a teenager as I was in love with the movie with Vivian Leigh and Clark Gable.
But this book is so much more than what we see in the movie. The plot is much more complex, the situations so wonderfully describe, the characters so deep...
It was the first huge book I read and at first, I thought I will never succeed but once you start, you are caught by the story and can't put it aside til the last page.
Since I read it, I have been through a lot of roman-fleuve but this one will stay forever my favorite because Margaret Mitchell gave us more than just a story. She gave us a reason to believe that a second chance always can happen as long as we work on it and that passion can be destructive if not attented by honesty, confidence and modesty.
And if you want to know... for me, Scarlett will fight with all she had to win back Rett and... this will work! :)
Now, I will take a great pleasure to discover this pure jewel in English and enjoy every nuance only the language in which this book had been written in will give me. :)
