Having just revisited the book, I was a little surprised at how unflattering a picture of Scarlett it offered. I think she come off much worse in the book than in the movie, as does Rhett. Both characters are softened in the movie, I think, so they still come across as well-matched characters.

I think Mitchell's genius is that she made these two characters complex and endlessly fascinating.
