    1 thought on “Scarlett”

    1. Horrible, slutty, over-dramatised, unbelievable, a very bad, bad book.A couple months ago, I was at Barnes and Noble. A Romanian girl was talking to her American friend about how she read Gone with the Wind in Romanian. Now she'd love to read it in English. She had a book in her hands, but it was not Gone with the Wind. It was Scarlett! I informed her that the book she was holding was not Gone with the Wind, but a sequel. A horrible sequel she would regret reading. Then I picked up the right boo [...]

    2. "God's Nightgown" I enjoyed it, but REALLY wanted more Rhett!The story begins with Melanie's funeral where SCARLETT makes a spectacle of herself comforting Ashley"the cause of her life's destruction".at exacerbates her isolation and ostracism from Atlanta society.Soa downhearted SCARLETT returns to her beloved Tara for comfort, but all is not well there either with an aged Mammy and Suellen as hateful as ever.With constant thoughts of how to win back her only true love, the story takes us to a s [...]

    3. I got this book in hardback for Christmas in 1991, shortly after it was first published. It was highly anticipated and, of course, there were folks lining up on both sides of the issue as to whether it could even hope to be a worthy follow-up to Margaret Mitchell's epic novel or whether it should be judged on its own merits as the continuation of Scarlett's and Rhett's story. No one who loved GWTW can deny that he/she WANTED to know how the story of Scarlett and Rhett turned out. Margaret Mitche [...]

    4. "Nu era decât o durere fizică, acesteia îi putea face față. Nu putea suporta însă cealaltă durere, mai greu de numit, pe care o tot amâna. Nu încă, nu aici, nu acum când încă era singură. Trebuie să ajungă la Tara, numaidecât. Mammy era acolo, o aștepta.""Genunchii lui Scarlett se înmuiară. Rhett nu putea vorbi serios. Ce avea să se întâmple cu ea? Casa de pe strada Piersicului, tonele de cărbune de care avea nevoie pentru încălzire, servitorii care trebuiau să țină [...]

    5. I am so pissed off. And I bet my hat Margaret Mitchell is pissed off too. She is surely rolling in her grave right as we speak, or just desperately looking down toward Ripley, from that place where brilliant writers go to. This is crap, in its purest form. And the sad thing is I would really like it if it wasn't called a sequel for Gone with the Wind. Its a good B romance, trashy literature which I'm not ashamed to admit I love, when him and her get together in the end, living happily ever after [...]

    6. Not only did I not like this book, I hated it! I fell in love with "Gone With the Wind" when I was little and watched the movie over and over with my aunts. When I finally read the book, it was one of the best I have ever read! I even fell in love with Margaret Mitchell's story and why she wrote the book. When the made-for-tv "Scarlett" movie was made, I watched it with my sister. It wasn't the worst ever, but nothing to the original. I eventually read this book as well and thought it was writte [...]

    7. Many have made the mistake of judging Scarlett by the horrible TV movie that was made from it. Please don't! This book is such a good read and really goes along with Margaret Mitchell's book. (Much was left out of the Gone With the Wind movie.)Scarlett gives closure toGone With the Windfans. I've read it multiple times and have enjoyed it more each time. I definitely recommmend this book!

    8. Scarlett: The Sequel to Margaret Mitchell's Gone With the Wind, Alexandra Ripley تاریخ نخستین خوانش: سال 1996 میلادیعنوان: اسکارلت - ادامه بر رمان بر باد رفته؛ نویسنده: آلکساندرا ریپلی؛ مترجم: قدیر گلکاریان؛ تهران، توسن، چاپ دوم 1371؛ در دو جلد؛ عنوان: اسکارلت - ادامه بر رمان بر باد رفته؛ نویسنده: آلکساندرا ریپلی؛ مت [...]

    9. So I am a huge Gone With the Wind groupie. I think Clark Gable is the most gorgeous man ever and I want to be Vivan Leigh. I even own the Scarlett Collector's Item Barbie! Scarlett: A Sequel to Gone With the Wind is an amazing book. It picks up right where GWtW left off and never disappoints. It's about 880 pages, but I swear you never even notice. The storyline is believable and the plot has so many twists and turns that you're never bored. My only regret: It wasn't written early enough to make [...]

    10. As trash fiction, this was fun to read. As a sequel to GWTW it indeed gave closure; Scarlett is such a tragic character with so many flaws and strengths that it was sort of satisfying to see her finally figure out something approximating happiness.That said, I didn't find it at all convincing. Scarlett may have realized her love for Ashley was a childish fantasy and her loves for Rhett and Melanie were real, but that doesn't mean that she would suddenly be able to throw off a lifetime of the beh [...]

    11. This was the first book I remember being so anticipated, and dreaded at the same time. I didn't think anyone could do justice to the first story and thought they should leave well enough alone. Yet I had to read it the first chance I got, and it truly did suck, with as much force as a book can suck. The characters were watered down versions of their original glory, and Scarlet, though never an angel, was just this simpering fool of a woman that the original would never have put up with. Seriousl [...]

    12. If GWTW had been written like this, this book would never have been written. There would have been no movie and no one would ever have heard of Vivien Leigh.I started off with low expectations, and found that "Scarlett" was easy to read and reasonably entertaining. I knew from the start that it deserved no more than 2 1/2 stars but was planning to give it 3, because I was enjoying it. Like many, I really wanted to find out about "Act 2" of Scarlett and Rhett. When I first read GWTW, as a teenage [...]

    13. If you have read Gone With The Wind you may be tempted to pick this up and "see what happens"what happens is the author had about 16 ideas for Harlequin romances she never got around to fleshing out so she used them all for this's a mish mash of plot, she does sort of get the writing style of Mitchell and she did mold the plots to the established characters somewhat deftly, but the plots and new characters are all very "brain candy romance" (which , hey I own a ton of and lovebut this is Gone wi [...]

    14. I guess everyone knows how Gone With the Wind ended, with Rhett walking out on Scarlett. Then the peeps in charge of the Margaret Mitchell estate caved in to stuffing their wallets reader demands for a sequel to hear the 'rest of the story'. And so Alexandra Ripley takes on the nearly impossible task of stepping into another author's shoes and making those characters her own.So what happens?Melly dies, Ashley wants to die with her, but Scarlett won't let him. Everyone in town shuns Scarlett so s [...]

    15. This book is disgraceful. Imagine the characters in Margaret Mitchell's classic as watered-down, one dimensional people with none of their original characteristics; add unlikely storylines that border on bizarre; finish with pat, easily predicted ending. Margaret Mitchell must be rolling in her grave. How anyone who loved the first book could feel that this book matches it is beyond my understanding would be like comparing an original Degas to a velvet clown painting purchased at a truck stop.

    16. Ok, this book was flat-out terrible. I read it because I LOVED Gone With the Wind, but in this book the characters aren't even recognizable as the same people, and do all sorts of well, just bizarre things. Scarlett goes to Ireland to get in touch with her roots, of all things. And she's always obsessing over Rhett and simpering. The real Scarlett was too self-absorbed to ever be like that!Anyway, it's really sad for me to see one of the best literary masterpieces be sequelled by such a terrible [...]

    17. this is an alright book. but don't read it looking for the same humor, wit, intelligence, depth or character building as gone with the wind. it's hard to go from a masterpiece of epic proportions to a follow up novel, so let's not compare them. lets just say, if you want to read one person's interpretation of what could have happened, go for it, it is not a deep read. as far as actual writing and storytelling goes, the ending is severely lacking. it seems as if ripley was under a time crunch and [...]

    18. If You Only Saw the Movie…you must read this sequel to Gone With The Wind. It's a great love story!After seeing the movie Gone With The Wind for the umpteenth time and once again being disappointed there was no happy ending (sorry you classic lovers, but the ending where Scarlett says she’ll find a way to win Rhett back just begs for the rest of the story!), I was glad there was a sequel. It was commissioned by Margaret Mitchell’s estate and the author selected in a competitionARLETT satis [...]

    19. It's difficult to know how to rate this book. Parts of it really shine. I think I'm frustrated that Ms. Mitchell herself didn't write a sequel to Gone With the Wind, and it's a little hard to know if you're supposed to like a book when some dared to touch such a classic. Over all, I appreciated some of the character development on Scarlett's part. I found it consistent with her character in Gone With the Wind, and consistent with the way a person might "grow up" after having married as young as [...]

    20. When I was a freshman in college, I saw Gone with the Wind for the first time. My roomie loved the old movies and I saw it with her one weekend at her house. I loved it!I could not believe the ending. It's so funny because I didn't know much about the movie, but I sort of knew that people were not happy with the ending. Not sure why I never was intrigued to find out why or what they were talking about.I was up in arms after seeing the movie--how could it end that way??? Luckily, the very year I [...]

    21. One of the worst books ever. (Horatio Alger was a more convincing author.) I like Gone With The Wind - like, not love. What? Don't look at me like that. It's a damn engaging story. The writing is vivid and engaging, the love affairs are tumultuous, and all of the major players are a pain-in-the-ass. But it works. When Rhett dumps Scarlett, it's the perfect, inevitable culmination of their respective characters. Aaaaaannnnnddddddd Ripley takes a dump on all that. The ending goes like this:"Rhett [...]

    22. I read Scarlett after i read Gone With The Wind.Both of this book is amazingI really love itLove Love LoveBut I haven't seen the movie of gone with the windHiks;(Scarlett and Gone With The Wind are bought by my father, first my dad just bought Gone With The Wind but after i read it. I start to beg my dad to buy Scarlett( I can't buy by myself for i don't have money:0 )But Scarlett and Gone With The Wind are very very very niceee.

    23. It's nowhere near as good as Gone With the Wind, but this book is a guilty pleasure of mine. It's not art, but it gives Rhett and Scarlett a happy ending and, as a bonus, Scarlett becomes The O'Hara.
