Overview

The timeless tale continues...
The most popular and beloved American historical novel
ever written, Margaret Mitchell's Gone With the Wind is
unparalleled in its portrayal of men and women at once
larger than life but as real as ourselves. Now bestselling
writer Alexandra Ripley brings us back to Tara and
reintroduces us to the characters we remember so well:
Rhett, Ashley, Mammy, Suellen, Aunt Pittypat, and, of
course, Scarlett.
As the classic story, first told over half a century ago,
moves forward, the greatest love affair in all fiction is
reignited; amidst heartbreak and joy, the endless,
consuming passion between Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett
Butler reaches its startling culmination. Rich with
surprises at every turn and new emotional, breathtaking
adventures, Scarlett satisfies our longing to reenter the
world of Gone With the Wind, and like its predecessor,
Scarlett will find an eternal place in our hearts.

    A sequel that works as it should.

    I approached this book with a mixture of fascination and caution. A sequel to a beloved novel, written many years later by a different author, can be downright dangerous to one's memory of the original. The proof is always in the reading, though and in this case, the estate of Margaret Mitchell made a resoundingly fine call in choosing Alexandra Ripley to write the sequel to Gone With the Wind. I hated finishing this one, because I didn't want to leave the characters and their world after reading its final paragraph. Ripley's Scarlett O'Hara is true to the character Mitchell created, but she does what the original Scarlett didn't have time (even in Gone With the Wind's vast scope) to do. She grows up. The selfish girl who never did learn the meaning of love does that at last, in the course of a multidecade journey that takes her from Atlanta back to Tara - to Charleston, the home of her estranged husband, Rhett Butler - to Savannah, where her mismatched parents married and their families still live - and on to Ireland's County Meath. Author Ripley understands what makes a woman like Scarlett tick, and leads her (sometimes gently, sometimes not!) through a journey of self-discovery that plays out against colorful real-world events. I'm no fan of bodice-ripping romances, but this isn't one. It's historical fiction with a strong woman at its center. My only criticism is an annoying tendency on Ripley's part to put suspiciously modern-sounding dialog into her characters' mouths. In every other respect, this sequel strikes all the right notes.

    the book started off bad. and then when i thought that it couldn't get any worse i realized, that when it rains it pours. she ends up in the 'land of her fore-fathers.' that's when it goes from a '2' to a '1'. there are so many cliche lines passed from one charecter to the next. and like one reviewer said it really becomes a trashy romance novel. both scarlett and rhett don't even seem like themselves. Dont read it people, save your minds for more derserving literature. i really wish that i could give it no stars what so ever.

    Different, but good in its own right...

    I read this immediately after GWTW. I was disappointed at first by the different writing style, and some of the comments written for Scarlett were hardly of the period, but all in all I thought it was a good book. The whole section on Ballyhara got a little long, but other than that I would say it's worth a read if you're a fan of Scarlett and Rhett...

    So I'm Not Alone?

    Okay, in all fairness I havn't read this new book yet. In 6th grade, on the last day of school, gave me a copy of Gone With The Wind, thinking that I would like it-all 1024 pages of it. For me, the beginning was a bit slow, but when I got to the chapters with Scarlett and Rhett, I was captivated. At 12 years old I finished the book and with that I felt that I had read something that would forever change my life. Now that I'm lazier and in high school, whenever I read GWTW, I find myself only reading the parts that either lead up to, are, or happen right after Scarlett's encounters with Rhett. I guess I am a truly hopeless romantic at heart. I never gave much thought to the sequel until I realized that I would never be truly happy until I had learned about what happened to the two most prominent characters in the history of novels. Thank you for posting such excellent book reviews, because now I think I can endure Scarlett, much better.

    Scarlett grows up

    I read reviews complaining of this Scarlett being so different. Well, she is. She is growing up in all ways. She is not the same person who lived in GWTW. I thought it was a wonderful story of a woman's journey through life. I wonder what that Kitty Cat would grow up to be!!!

    Never a disappointment

    I have loved GWTW since I was 14 years old and I've re read it every year since then. Sometimes more than once. I read Scarlett when it first came out and have re read it every year since then, sometimes more than once per year. And I think I love them both more every time I read them.

    I loved it

    The first couple of chapters dragged on forever but around the fifth chapter it gets really interesting and i couldn't put it down.i think i like it more then the first mostly because it showed a change in scarlett and it was like she didn't need rhett, she loved him but she went on with out him and when he visited her when she met the queen it was like he realized what he lost and that she was moving on and changing without him. I think the begining and middle is better in the book but they should change the ending because it felt like she started out taking her time but then rushed the ending.

    'Gone With The Wind' is not only a famous story with famous characters, it is a book of history and emotion. 'Scarlett' was neither, despite all hopes. This book, while not the worst I've ever read, is not true as a sequel. Despite attempts, this reads like a generic romance novel with very little plot to drive it. There are scenes with much too much 'emotion', as Ripley portrays so much through only high highs and low lows. The middle ground of realism was completely missing. For a mindless read by someone not in love with Scarlett, Rhett, or 'Gone With The Wind,' this book just might satisfy. However, for those faithful followers I warn you that this book is drastically different than Margaret Mitchell's and to read only with great caution.

    Reads like a trashy romance novel

    Trashy, poorly written, lurid-what more to say? Oh, yes, I almost forgot that it was strictly stated by Margaret Mitchell that she did not want a sequel. Gone With the Wind is my favorite book, and this atrocity almost ruined it for me. It is a piece of garbage compared to Gone With the Wind-Ripley knows nothing about Scarlett or her personality, and the style is completely different from the original. If you like grocery store romance novels, this is for you.

    What is this ???

    Ok i know that some people may like this book, but I HAVE to disagree... I read this in less than two days, hopeing that in the begining Scarlett was just in a mood and she was so different for that reason.Not true, that is how this author made her... she is NOT the woman she was in Gone With the Wind. I will say that the book maybe descent as a book on its own, as a sequel....It is all wrong...Dont read this if you want closure to Gone With the Wind... Only read it if you want a story of it's own....

    Not sure

    I don't know if anyone else has had this dilemma, but I have actually read two different versions of Scarlett. One I read about 10 years ago, and the most recent one was the one by Alexandra Ripley. I don't know who wrote the first one I read. Some of the things are the same in both books, but there are a lot of things that are different. I liked the first one I read much better. It was closer to the movie than the one Ripley wrote and I think that the character of Scarlett was more like she was in GWTW. If you didn't like Ripley's version and ever come across the other one, I def. recommend you to read that one instead. Also, even without Rhett being played by Clark or Scarlett being played by Vivian, the movie Scarlett is also a good watch. The ending is a lot different than Ripley's version but they still end up together:)

    Go back to the magical world of Tara

    This book continues about two weeks from where it left off, so you don't miss any of the splendor, sobs, or blackmail. Scarlett is struggling to accept Melanie's death, and her love for Rhett. She hasn't changed a bit since last time. She is still as bullheaded, self-absorbed, and seductive as before, but hey that's why we fell in love with her. As you know Rhett has left Scarlett claiming that there is no more love for him to give. Scarlett refuses to accept this and follows him to Charleston, where she is accepted with the city's famous hospitality. Contrary to prior feelings, Scarlett falls in love with the city and it's people. To Rhett's horror his mother welcomes Scarlett with open arms and love reminding her of her own mother. Ms. Eleanor is willing to do anything for Rhett to find love and if that means taunting him with Scarlett, she'll do it. Unfortunatly, instead of Rhett facing his love he runs away again. Causing all of his women, his sister, mother, and Scarlett anguish. She is horrified when she learns that Rhett doesn't love her anymore, but knowing Scarlett has she ever not gotten what she wants?

    Scarlett: The Sequel to Margaret Mitchell's Gone with the Wind

    If the story was supposed to end up with Scarlett and Rhett together Ms. Mitchell would have wrote it that way. If you liked the sequel, then I really don't think you understood the prequel to begin with. I think Ms. Ripley didn't like the end to GWTW so she tried to change it ruining it for those of us who loved how GWTW started and ended.

    Really bad

    This novel was the worst book i have ever read. she started out okay,but by the end it just got really bad. Scarlett and Rhett were not the same people and the author just messed their personalities up. it felt as if it wasn't a sequal to Gone With the Wind at all. Instead it was like a sequal to another story altogether.

    Scarlett: The Sequel to Margaret Mitchell's Gone with the Wind

    Ms. Ripley tried her hardest, but you just can't beat the original. The stories didn't match up. Scarlett just wasn't the same in this sequel. I hated the ending Scarlett was not supposed to end up with Rhett that was the way the story was supposed to end. To me the story was supposed to end when Rhett said 'Frankly dear,I don't give a damn' I wish I had never read it, it runined the story for me. But some people like this ending better, when the spoiled, selfish girl gets what she wants

    Not Margaret

    This story was dull, it was not good. It obviously not Margaret Mitchell's soothing words! It was an awesome novel turned into a sequel that should have been stopped.
