ROAD TO TARA The Life of Margaret Mitchell

by | Read by Karen Commins

Biography & Memoir • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

GONE WITH THE WIND's elusive author, Margaret Mitchell, has long since passed from life to legend. In this comprehensive biography, narrator Karen Commins tackles Peggy Mitchell's accent and mannerisms with a deft touch. Commins sounds Southern but not syrupy, and she captures the wry humor and wit of the author. She also creates distinguishable voices for most of the other main players in Mitchell's story, though the overwhelming level of detail regarding Mitchell's everyday life creates pacing lulls that could disengage some listeners. Due to the time period under discussion, there are a small number of direct and indirect quotes from various sources using both stereotypical dialect and racial slurs.
