Helpful Score: 6

The sequel to "Gone with the Wind," but from a different perspective than the original--that of a slave girl (same age as Scarlett O'Hara) who had lived at Tara. Readable, poignant. I don't know why I expected something kind of silly--maybe bcs of the title (which sounds like a flippant parody of the original), and bcs of the words "An unauthorised parody" on the front of the book. I didn't think this was humourous; not sure why they marketed it that way. Also, it is *not* written in severe vernacular (as you might expect it would be from the title). I love the book Gone With the Wind, and reading this book did not change that. It just felt as though I had been given a wider perspective, a grittier, possibly more true vision of the same cast of characters as their lives proceeded beyond the point at which the first book left off.
