Review: Scarlett by Alexandra Ripley

The timeless tale continues... The most popular and beloved American historical novel ever written, Margaret Mitchell's Gone With the Wind is unparalleled in its portrayal of men and women at once larger than life but as real as ourselves. Now bestselling writer Alexandra Ripley brings us back to Tara and reintroduces us to the characters we remember so well: Rhett, Ashley, Mammy, Suellen, Aunt Pittypat, and, of course, Scarlett. As the classic story, first told over half a century ago, moves forward, the greatest love affair in all fiction is reignited; amidst heartbreak and joy, the endless, consuming passion between Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler reaches its startling culmination.

My rating:

And this is supposedly the sequel to GWTW?

Tomorrow was supposed to be another day. Tomorrow was supposed to be the day Scarlett won Rhett back not the day Rhett would divorce Scarlett and marry another.

And when the author finally realized the uproar she was creating for those die-hard Scarlett and Rhett fans out there, she tried to compensate with the bad attempt at drama and epic ending. Urgh.
