Yeah, I stumbled through the first couple of hundred pages of Gone With the Wind, but once the action moves to Atlanta. it's an absolutely amazing novel, the best historical fiction I've read. Mitchell is able to convey all this very specific period detail and historical information without ever making it look "researched" or that she's showing off what she knows. It's still going to take me another week or so to finish it but right now I'm enthralled. After being dubious at first, now I'm a convert.
