Gone with the wind

ooohfff i have completed reading a marvelous novel "GONE WITH THE WIND" by Margarett Mitchell. i think it is the best book I’ve ever read, though i must have took 30-40 reading days which is considerably a long duration, it was worth reading such a thick novel.
Right from the beginning the novel presents the main character Scarlett O’Hara as the most bullheaded women of her times.
Till the end of the novel i went with her opinion that it is not the proprietary that matters when people are dying of hunger
It was a beautifully written love story with the American civil war as the backdrop, in which she never understands a person who loves her and misunderstands a person whom she thinks that she has loved
Few phrases have left an indelible impression on me
"Apologies postponed become harder and harder and finally impossible to make"
"You should not judge someone else by yourself b'coz he does what he is supposed to do"
"I’ll think of it some other time when i can stand it better, but tomorrow is yet another day"
And many.....I think I’ll read it again when i have enough time
