Second Serving

I bought this one two years ago and loved it. In an attempt to be frugal, I'm trying to re-listen to the books in my library. Some were good the first time, but a chore the second time through. Rhett Butler's People was so entertaining, it was like listening to it for the first time. Great, great book, even if your not familiar with Gone With The Wind.

Fiddle-dee-dee, this was fun!

I enjoyed this book immensely; as a GWTW fan of forty years, I was glad to see everybody again.

That said, it is not Gone with the Wind, nor was it written by Margaret Mitchell. As long as you treat it as a reflection of the original, you will enjoy it immensely.
