Had started reading this sequel to “Gone with the wind”, during summer, with rather prejudiced mind, since reviews were almost invariably against it. The most common criticism was that Scarlett was not the Scarlett of “Gone with the wind”. Possibly true, but then that is the whole point. If she did not change after blows of time, if something would not be different, a sequel could never come out. It would have been a repetition. She could have married a fourth and a fifth time and what would come out is another “Gone with the wind”. I believe that the criticisms were not really justified. I enjoyed reading it, as much as I had enjoyed “Gone with the Wind”.
