Summary Rhett Butler's People Donald McCaig ☆ 2 Download Characters ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ☆ Donald McCaig E of the Civil War Of course there is Scarlett Katie Scarlett O’Hara the headstrong passionate 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. The Margaret Mitchell Estate should have left well enough alone I m not even sure where to start in 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 I ever wrong This book is called Rhett Butler s People for a reason it s not just about Rhett it s about all the people in his life and there are WAY too many of them I totally agree with other reviewers on US that the story seemed to be told as snapshots in a person s life instead of true story telling and the way he jumped back and forth from one person s point of view to another was very distracting to this reader and I admit to giving up at 150 pages 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 people Rhett is a fascinating character who had a colorful past before he met Scarlett He traveled to burgeoning San Francisco and the California Gold fields a colorful period 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

Summary Rhett Butler's People Donald McCaig ☆ 2 Download Characters ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ☆ Donald McCaig Lds Through Rhett’s eyes we meet the people who shaped his larger than life personality as it sprang from Margaret Mitchell’s unforgettable pages 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. 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 shot and read it Unlike most 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 various point 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 pov I would have rather stayed mainly with Rhett and perhaps two other vital people I did enjoy having Melanie s pov 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 passing in a letter from Melanie to Rhett s sister Rosemary but that s about it That is a huge turning point 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
