I read this book with a group for an online read-along. I was really surprized how much I enjoyed reading this book! If you've seen the movie, you will still like the book, as there was a lot cut out for the movie. The motives of Scarlett are very clear, and we see the Civil War almost entirely through her eyes. There is very little of the book that is written from the viewpoints of the others. This allows us to be surprised by the events in the book.

One warning, though. This book is written from the point of view of the southern white aristocracy, and there is a lot of overt racism in the book. So if that sort of thing will bother you (even if it's appropriate for the times and characters in the book), I wouldn't recommend it.
