Rhett Butler's PeopleSo I finished Rhett Butler s People last nightI d seen a lot of negative reviews while I was reading but I vowed to keep an open mind and I m glad I did I really enjoyed this book It s one of the better ones I ve read in awhile and one I know I will read again somedayIt s NOT Gone With the Wind there will never be another It s not even the same caliber as GWTW I think a lot of The Catechism of the Council of Trent people went into reading it expecting and hoping it would be and came out sorely disappointed on the other endMyersonal expectation was that it was going to be about Rhett and it was in a sense but it was about the eople that made up his life hence the title some of which that are mentioned only rarely or not at all in GWTW People he grew up with his sister Rosemary A "LOOK AT HIS PARENTS A MISTRESS HE HAD IN "at his arents A mistress he had in Orleans before he met Scarlett There was of Belle in this book and her sonI wish there had been ScarlettThe author could have done so much with exploring Rhett s feelings scenes standing out in my mind are when Bonnie Blue died and Scarlett fell down the stairs and miscarried but instead he basically did nothing only using a letter from Melanie to Rosemary to reference Bonnie s death and completely not mentioning Scarlett s fall I was really disappointed that he didn t go thereEven though I found it lacking it was a good read It was well written interesting and nice to have new material on one of my most favorite books ever I really enjoyed Gone With the Wind so when I heard of this new take on my beloved story I Figured I D Take A I d take a and read it Unlike most The Runaway Prophet Jonah Study Guide 1998 people I didn t hate Scarlett so I was hoping to like this one as well However I was very dissapointedThe novel begins and you feel like you ve been dropped into some odd fan fiction creation There is barely any lead up to the story and where you are Suddenly you are on the field with Rhett and that s that The story or less moves along in a chronological order from before Rhett met Scarlett to about a year or so after he leaves her in GWTW The story is told from variousoint of views and I think that s the ultimate downfall of this novel The readers already know what Scarlett thought and did why did we have to revisit her Književna groupie 2: Strovaljivanje pov I would have rather stayed mainly with Rhett anderhaps two other vital eople I did enjoy having Melanie s ov however I feel that this author did a disservice to her character towards the end The other downfall in this novel is the fact that it completely skips over major storylines from GWTW The most glaring would be Bonnie Blue s death Her death and Rhett s sorrow is mentioned in Davids Sling passing in a letter from Melanie to Rhett s sister Rosemary but that s about it That is a huge turningoint for Rhett in GWTW and his character and I can t imagine why this author felt that it didn t need to be explored from Rhett s eyes Finally the fluidity in this novel is just not there There are so many fits and starts to this novel it will make your head spin There s not much of a rhyme or reason to a lot that is going on For the avid GWTW fan this is sure to dissapoint even than Scarlett I don t really see much of a reason for any fan to read this novel I am sorry to say The Margaret Mitchell Estate should have left well enough alone I m not even sure where to start in Reality Hunger: A Manifesto. David Shields putting my feelings about this book into words Gone With the Wind is one of my all time favorite books and Rhett is right up there in my favorite fascinating male characters in fiction and I was looking forward to a good meaty look into Rhett s life before Scarlett Boy was Fully authorized by the Margaret Mitchell estate Rhett Butler’s People is the astonishing and long awaited novel thatarallels the Great American Novel Gone With The Wind Twelve years in the making the ublication of Rhett Butler’s People marks a major and historic cultural event Through the storytelling mastery of award winning writer Donald McCaig the life and times of the dashing Rhett Butler unfo. ,

Ever wrong This book is called Rhett Butler s People for a reason it s not just about Rhett it s about all the eople in his life and there are WAY reason it s not just about Rhett it s about all the Just Destiny people in his life and there are WAY many of them I totally agree with other reviewers on US that the story seemed to be told as snapshots in aerson s life instead of true story telling and the way he jumped back and forth from one Paradise Run person soint of view to another was very distracting to this reader and I admit to giving up at 150 ages and from looking at some of the other one and two star reviews on US I am very glad I did so I was uite irritated at the way the author used scenes and characters from the original book and wrote his own version of them and worse yet worked his new characters into those scenes This author even managed to ruin Prissy and Aunt Pitty Pat and from reading the other reviews I see that he managed to rewrite history as Ashley Melanie and even Scarlett are not what they were in GWTW For me the mistake made was telling the story of Rhett and his eople Rhett is a fascinating character who had a colorful Help Me, Jacques Cousteau past before he met Scarlett He traveled to burgeoning San Francisco and the California Gold fields a colorfuleriod in US history and it s barely touched upon and only via letters Rhett wrote to his sister Letters I might add that were destroyed by their father so she never read them yet they are recreated in the book as if they were What s up with that I think if the MM Estate and taken the tact of writing Rhett s story totally from his viewpoint and given me a good strong meaty story about Rhett and his life before Scarlett and not rewritten moments from GWTW they might have had a winner here instead of a bomb IMO this book is not worth wasting time or money on there are too many good books to be read and too little time in this world If you re dead set on reading the rest of the story get it from the library and then if you love it buy it Dear Estate of Margaret MitchellI m writing to reuest that you stop authorizing crappy Dignity Rising 1: Gefesselte Seelen preuels and seuels to Ms Mitchell s book Those of us who have a special fondness for the characters of Gone With the Wind find ourselves compelled to read them because of our interest in these well developed and complexersonalities We then find ourselves appalled at how modern authors take liberties to turn her story into an implausible uncharacteristic mess and invariably try and The Book of Mordred put a smiley face on a novel that really ended the way it should haveThe latest version Rhett Butler s People tries to cast Rhett in the role of a misunderstood saint when really the most interesting thing about him in Gone With the Wind is his mystery Theeople Mr McCaig has decided to surround Rhett with are stereotypical and Oracle R12 Applications DBA Field Guide predictable and in case their motives weren t obvious enough they feel compelled to write near constant letters to each other expressing their every thought so at nooint is there any doubt about how they re feeling Illustrative of my complaints the implausibility the destruction of characters and the constant reiteration of the characters obvious feeling is a 6 age letter Melanie Wilkes writes to Rhett s sister Rosemary telling her how badly she wants to have marital relations with her husband I nearly threw the book down in disgustI understand that the royalties from Gone with the Wind are not what they once were Heck the copyright s robably running out soon if it hasn t already But Hidden Boundaries please for all of our sake I implore you to think twice before attempting to make aenny by throwing Gone with the Wind to the dogs again Lds Through Rhett’s eyes we meet the eople who shaped his larger than life ersonality as it sprang from Margaret Mitchell’s unforgettable ages Langston Butler Rhett’s unyielding father; Rosemary his steadfast sister; Tunis Bonneau Rhett’s best friend and a onetime slave; Belle Watling the woman for whom Rhett cared long before he met Scarlett O’Hara at Twelve Oaks Plantation on the fateful ev.

Akes Gone with the Wind and oops on itRhett Butler is one of the best romantic heroes both in literature and cinema He deserves a good companion novel or seuel or Forever I'm Yours preuel told from hisoint of view This aint itMr Darcy has a kazillion books recently and I hope Rhetty gets another shotThis book sucks For reals I first heard about RBP by browsing through this site and I was very excited to find a copy My excitement started to fizzle as soon as I began reading itMcCai Can you icture Miss Melly as a gossiping complainer Rosemary Butler marrying Ashley Wilkes Scarlett and Belle Watling friends Rhett mooning over a womanI love Gone With the Wind hell I even loved Scarlett and that "Was Considered A Travesty Against GWTW But This Book Ruins "considered a travesty against GWTW but this book ruins Mitchell s well crafted world and makes kittens cry I am not sure how a erson can spend 12 years working on a novel that is supposed to be an accompaniment to one of the best What was the last book that brought tears to your eyes as you finished the last age Not due to the heroheroine s tragic death but simply because you have finished the story That s how I felt after finishing Rhett Butler s People tonightRhett Butler s People is set around Margaret Mitchell s classic novel You meet Rhett before that fateful meeting at a Twelve Oaks icnic and the book continues to weave in and out of the well known events of GWTW The author then takes you beyond Rhett s dramatic exit and continues the story Granted he continues it for all of 90 Renoir pages but it just feels right where the story goes after Yes I ve read Scarlett but Irefer Mr McCaig s version of the events I will also admit that there were a few laces in The Story That I story that I have loved to smack Ms O Hara and that I can t recall having that urge in her story Rhett Butler s People is true to the original novel Scarlett has three children Suellen marries after the War and other characters left out of the movie are here That s definitely a lus for me You really need to read Gone With the Wind first in order to really appreciate this book The author was commissioned by the estate of Margaret Mitchell to write this parallel seuel to GWTW and he has kept faithful to her style In it we seuel to GWTW and he has kept faithful to her style In it we background about Rhett s youth his family and many characters who are just briefly mentioned in GWTW The story is told through Rhett s eyes It goes through his youth his relationship with Scarlett and takes it Nightwing: On the Razor's Edge past where GWTW ends and on to the conclusion which I will not give away I thoroughly enjoyed this book could notut it down It was like visiting old friends again I will read it again and again just like I have read Gone With the Wind so many times I am embarrassed to include this as my first book of 2008 but there it is The fact that it took me six weeks to finish tells you how interesting it wasThe lot was okay I m almost always okay with reworkings of classic lots from the viewpoint of a different character But the writing was unbearably The Donegal Woman poor If I hadn t cared very very deeply about the characters a legacy entirely of Margaret Mitchell and having nothing to do with this book I would have been unable to finish itBy comparison I liked Scarlett very much As aurist I m not sure I can ever accept it as canon and Scarlett s running around with a Martha's Chickens and the Pirates proto IRA is a bit silly But that book I couldn tut down and read cover to cover in 24 hours Again I was invested because of my obsession with the original GWTW but at least Scarlett kept me entertained while it twisted characters all out of sorts This one Skip it. E of the Civil War Of course there is Scarlett Katie Scarlett O’Hara the headstrong assionate woman whose life is inextricably entwined with Rhett’s like him than she cares to admit; in love with him than she’ll ever knowBrought to vivid and authentic life by the hand of a master Rhett Butler’s People fulfills the dreams of those whose imaginations have been indelibly marked by Gone With The Wind.
