Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Literature, Margaret Mitchell’s great novel of the South is one of the most popular books ever written. Within six months of its publication in 1936, Gone with the Wind had sold a million copies. To date, it has been translated into 25 languages, and more than 28 million copies have been sold.

Here are the characters that have become symbols of passion and desire: darkly handsome Rhett Butler and flirtatious Scarlett O’Hara. Behind them stand their gentler counterparts: Ashley Wilkes and Melanie Hamilton. As the lives and affairs of these absorbing characters play out against the tumult of the Civil War, Gone with the Wind reaches dramatic heights that have swept generations of fans off their feet.

Having lived in Atlanta for many years, narrator Linda Stephens has an authentic ear for the dialects of that region. Get ready to hear Gone with the Wind exactly as it was written: every word beautifully captured in a spectacular unabridged audio production.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A masterpiece demands a masterful reader, and the match between Gone with the Wind and Linda Stephens is perfect. In her we have the petulant, youthful Scarlett O’Hara; the blustery, whiskey-drinking Gerald O’Hara; hands-on-her-hips Mammy; saintly Melanie Wilkes; and the bungling Aunt Pittypat. The dreamy softness of Ashley is juxtaposed with the dashing arrogance of Rhett Butler. The supercilious tones of the ladies of Atlanta ring out with heavy disapproval. We can hear in Stephens’ voice the blind spot that is Scarlett O’Hara’s tragic flaw. Stephens delivers absolutely convincing accents of Southerners—white and black. Her timing is flawless, and her use of pause enhances the material in this unhurried, luxurious reading of a great American classic. Stephens is as much at home telling of the ravages of the Civil War as Margaret Mitchell was. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”
