This is in no way the easiest dessert ever.
If you're not in a tent you're not really camping.
THIS IS SO TOTALLY ONE OF MY FAVOURITE BOOKS.
I hated The Wind Done Gone because I didn't care for the writing style. Rhett Butler's People was just unabashedly awful.
I don't want to get into the Politics of the South, Race, the War As Examined in GWTW because holy crap that could take up way too much space.
INSTEAD, DRESSES: The green-and-white barbeque dress! THE SLUTTY RED DRESS. The green velvet curtain dress! And like, I think the 17-inch waist is much more reasonable if you imagine Scarlett as a teeny-tiny lady, like 5'2 or under. Which I don't remember if it's described as such?
AND MELLIE!!! My favourite scene in the entire book is when the Yankee soldier comes to Tara and Scarlett shoots him--but Melanie was coming down the stairs with a sword ready to kill him, too. And then everybody freaks out over the gunshot and Melanie is the one to come up with a really quick lie to deflect everyone's attention! I mean, Melanie was...you know, Melanie, but there was something in her, you know.
Why DIDN'T Beatrice just go along with the plan? I mean, it's not like her plan was any better, let's be honest.
IS IT TIME FOR GWTW YET? I have so many Thoughts about that book. Also, I hope I'm not the only person who read Rhett Butler's People and then got bored and then got irrationally upset and threw it away. Because.....bad.
@jolie THE WISE WOMAN TOTALLY SCARED THE BEJESUS OUT OF ME!!!! I don't know what I was expecting but it sure wasn't A WAX BABY and IRON PINS and oh God oh God
