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.

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.See all Product Description

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.Read more ›

I was very surprised on how different the reviews are on this book. A lot of 5s and a lot of 1s with not much in between. Seems like people love it or hate it. Read morePublished on Dec 6 2010 by Victoria
Scarlett is only for those who want a cheap,false happy ending to GWTW. Ripley makes crude the name of Gone With the Wind. Read morePublished on May 6 2006 by Mary Ngo
I had fallen SOOO in love with Rhett and Scarlett in GWTW that I couldn't except the way things had ended. I was completely smitten with the first that I had to read the sequel. Read morePublished on April 11 2005
