“Gone With the Wind” by Margaret Mitchell Book Review

This book is undoubtedly my least favorite book in existence. I'll explain exactly why. 1). The main character. How can anyone stand her? Scarlett O'Hara is the least likably had character in any book I've read so far. She's virtually impossible to like, even a little bit.
