The characters of Scarlett, Rhett, Ashley, and others are so much a part of American literary and cinematic history that anything that tries to expand on them or their stories might be listened to with skepticism. Rhett's people include his tyrannical father; his loyal sister, Rosemary; his friend, the Confederate hero Andrew Ravenel; and Belle Watling, the Butler overseer's daughter, all of whom are given voices by John Bedford Lloyd. Different points of view (for example, those of Bonnie Blue and Melanie) illuminate familiar scenes. Long after the war is over, old resentments catch up with Rhett and threaten to ruin his newfound happiness with Scarlett, who seems chastened. Lloyd excels at accents and emotions; only the narrative parts seem a bit forced at times. Curiosity alone should recommend this "piggyback" audio.
