There are kinder reviews on Goodreads than As of today the book only has 3 stars on and 4 stars on Goodreads I do think the author has a story to tell but the heavy bias and poor editing detract from the credibility of the book Even tabloids have better editors The book umps around a lot One big example is the second to last chapter is her father s obituary The last chapter details her father s death There are spelling and grammatical errors throughout the book Even a paragraph starting with a lowercase letter The author s scorn of
Mitchells is apparent the book She claims John set out to write a bestselling novel even before he met Margaret However the book s references do not include any direct writings ofThe Mitchells Is Apparent
Margaret If The Author Would Ve ReadIf the author would ve read direct letters which are published she would ve learned how the success of the book surprised the Mitchells and wanted the publicity to go away Margaret was cheered when the book was off the bestseller list It seems odd to claim the Mitchells set out for fame and fortune when facts prove otherwise John kept his ob for several years after the book was published Also Margaret refused to write anything else even though there was begging and pleading therefore it is obvious she didn t cash in on her fame A seuel to Gone with the Wind would ve been a cash cowThe "Author Also Made Some "also made some claims including one that they didn t have children because John was gay The author also claimed that Margaret had neither the education nor the discipline to achieve that goal to become a published writer The fact that Margaret is an accomplished writer can not be disputed by reading Gone with the Wind or her written correspondence that is published It is even amusing this claim is coming from this author whose book is poorly written as mentioned above The author did make some good points that other drivers around the same time in Atlanta were not as severely punished by the courts for hitting No Way Home jaywalkers as her father was The author pointed out the photo of the scene showed no one administering care to Margaret as she lay in the road However she died in a coma 5 days later Also newspapers claimed her father was an on duty drunk taxi cab driver The author clarified he was not on duty and had one beer earlier in the afternoon He had been driving to pick up a prescription for a sick child The author suspects it was the Mitchells who had been drinking but their fame shielded them If the author would ve taken a objective approach her arguments would ve held much weight This book did a wonderfulob of keeping my interest It left me wanting I now want to research Margaret Mitchell Anyone who is a Gone With the Wind fan this is a very gripping and disturbing tale and has many twists and turns I recommend this book highly I believe that there could be few tragedies greater than being convicted and sentenced to prison for a crime you knew in your heart that you did not commit nor the anguish and stigma that is extended to the innocent family who are involved in the situation The injustice of it would burn in your consciousness crying out for absolution for the truth to be told Only the na ve believe that the udicial system is fool. This book is not about Scarlett Rhett the Civil War or it's aftermath It is about a bargain made by Margaret Mitchell the famous author of Gone With The Wind that eventually led to her death and how it impacted the life of Hugh Dorsey Gravitt and his family It's about manipulation psychopathic behavior sexual deviance and a murder that was made to look li.
