Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Ripley's ultra-mega-hyped sequel to Margaret Mitchell's Gone With the Wind spent 28 weeks on PW 's bestseller list while receiving uniformly dismal notices from the critics.
Copyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Publisher

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. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I too succumbed to this novel, which promised a continuation of my absolute favorite book of all time, the book to which nothing ever compared. Well, I was let down. The time spent in Ireland is incredibly boring. It goes on and on and on and it's awful. As for the book itself, it's not bad. But it's got nothing on the original; absolutely NOTHING. It's easy to decide to read it, but if I could turn back time I never would have read it. Personally I think no sequel is necessary to the spectacular Gone With the Wind. It is a beautiful story that is complete the way it is. I'd rather dream sequels to the book myself than read Ms. Ripley's attempt to follow it. It's nothing against her. After all, it would've been hard for anyone to pick up, what with Melanie dead and Scarlett no longer in love with Ashley. I can almost see how it was necessary to change Scarlett beyond recognition. The first part of it, when Scarlett went to Charleston, was actually pretty interesting. But this is not a book that should have been written. As Rhett said in the last pages of GWTW, "Scarlett, I was never one to patiently pick up broken fragments and glue them together and tell myself that the mended whole was as good as new. What is broken is broken--and I'd rather remember it as it was at its best than mend it and see the broken pieces as long as I lived." Gone With the Wind ended, whether the ending was the way we wanted things to turn out or not, and this continuation is nothing but an attempt to glue pieces back together.

I have been a Gone with the Wind fan since I was tweleve years old. I worship the movie and the book. The original novel, however, left some unanswered questions. What happened to Rhett and Scarlet? What happened to Ashley, Mammy and the rest of the characters? What happens to Tara?
I have read the sequel by Alexandra Ripley four times and I have also seen the movie "Scarlett." I think the main point to remember is that Ripley is not Margaret Mitchell. They are two completely different authors with different experiences and writing styles. Let's face it writing a sequel to the "greatest love story ever told" is quite a challenge. Yes, there are quite a few surprises in the sequel. Ripley does kill off Mammy, Rhett only shows up for a fraction of the book, and Scarlett gives Tara away and moves to Ireland. This can seem far fetched, but it is plausable. Any GWTW fan has created their own ending to the sequel before Ripley wrote her version. This is where the problem occurs! When Rhett leaves Scarlett, we all want to know what happens next and many of us have created our own "sequel" prior to reading Ripley's version. Keep that in mind when you read this book!
I think Ripley,does her best to bring these characters to life, although Scarlett does not have the same vivacity,she is a more mature version of herself. I have always admired Scarlett for her strength, wit, courage and perserverance. In the sequel, Scarlett grows up and matures into womanhood. She learns how to really love and care for others. She learns that the best gift she can possible give is unconditional love. Mitchell's Scarlett is self-centered, egocentric, and lacks compassion for the world around her.

I have a new appreciation for this sequel to GWTW by the late Alexandra Ripley after reading that pathetic travesty "Rhett Butler's People" by Donald McCaig, which unbelievably, like "Scarlett" was also sanctioned by Margaret Mitchell's estate. In my opinion, "Scarlett" is the only true sequel to the original masterpiece of American Literature. It's not perfect, but at least Ripley was true to the characters and it was clear that she read GWTW and researched it carefully. Say what you will, but Scarlett was an independent woman, who kept the household going during the war, became a business woman, not to mention the fact that she drove her own buggy in GWTW (how scandalous!). So I could see Scarlett taking the path that she did, after trying to get Rhett back, which failed at the time but was rewarded by the end of the novel. As for Scarlett moving to Ireland, I could see that. She was very much her father's daughter, who taught her how important land is to the Irish, not to mention the relatives that resided there. She clearly was looked down on by Atlanta society and while Tara would always be home to her, it just wasn't the same as it was before, so it's fitting that she would want to discover the original Tara in her father's homeland. Rhett stated at the end of GWTW how he was sentimental about what the old South used to be and was hoping to be able to recapture that somehow, so there's nothing weird about him wanting to preserve a plantation - nor did it make him into a "sissy who grows flowers". It showed that Rhett himself a love of land as Scarlett had deep inside her as well. Having Scarlett and Rhett have another child was a great idea, so it would give them another reason to be drawn back together in the end after the loss of their beloved daughter Bonnie and Scarlett's miscarriage.Read more ›
