My Favourite Book

   I've recently read a book, which has made a very deep impression on me. It is named "Gone with the Wind" The author of the book is Margaret Mitchell. She was born in Atlanta, Georgia, in a family of the president of the Atlanta Historical Society.
   All the family was interested in American history and she grew up in an atmosphere of stones about the Civil War.
   After graduating from the college Margaret Mitchell worked for a time for the Atlanta Journal. In 1925 she got married. In the following ten years she put on paper all the stories she had heard about the Civil War.
   The result was Gone with the Wind. It was first published in 1936 and became the talking point of all America.
   In 1939 the book was made into a highly successful film. Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable played the leading roles. Vivien Leigh won the Oscar. Everyone loved her high-spirited and beautiful heroine, Scarlett O'Hara.
   The story is set around the time of the American Civil War (1861-1865), when the Southern states went to war with the North to defend their way of life.
   It was a way of life in which rich gentry lived in large houses and owned huge areas of land, cultivated by black slaves. Scarlett O'Hara was born in one of those rich houses.
   But "Gone with the Wind" is also about a love triangle. While Scarlett loves the quiet, gentlemanly Ashley Wilkes, the wild and decidedly ungentlemanly Rhett Butler is in love with her.
   Not so long ago, in 1991, a publishing company asked Alexandra Ripley, a historical novelist, to write the continuation of the story. Her novel "Scarlett" was not in the same class as the original. Critics have been writing very bad reviews of "Scarlett" but the book is popular with the public.

Моя любимая книга

   Я недавно прочитал книгу, которая произвела на меня очень глубокое впечатление. Она называется «Унесенные ветром». Автор книги — Маргарет Митчелл. Она родилась в Атланте, Джорджия, в семье председателя исторического общества Атланты.
   Вся семья интересовалась американской историей, и девочка росла в атмосфере рассказов о гражданской войне.
   После окончания колледжа Маргарет Митчелл какое-то время работала в «Atlanta Journal». В 1925 г. она вышла замуж. В следующие десять лет она перенесла на бумагу все истории, которые слышала о гражданской войне.
   Результатом были «Унесенные ветром». Сначала книга была издана в 1936 г. и стала темой для разговоров во всей Америке.
   В 1939 г. книга была очень успешно экранизирована. Вивьен Ли и Кларк Гэйбл играли главные роли. Вивьен Ли получила премию «Оскар». Все любили ее мужественную и красивую героиню, Скарлетт О'Хара.
   История происходит во времена гражданской войны в Америке (1861-1865), когда южные штаты сражались с северными, чтобы защитить свои жизненные устои.
   Это была такая жизнь, при которой богатое дворянство жило в больших имениях и имело огромные земельные угодья, обрабатываемые черными рабами. Скарлетт О'Хара родилась в одном из таких богатых домов.
   Но «Унесенные ветром» так же повествуют о любовном треугольнике. В то время как Скарлетт любит скромного джентльмена Эшли Уилкса, дикий и совершенно «не джентльмен» Рэтт Батлер любит ее.
   В 1991 г., издательство попросило Александру Рипли, автора исторических романов, чтобы она написала продолжение истории. Ее роман «Скарлетт» не стал в один ряд с оригиналом. Критики дали «Скарлетт» очень плохие отзывы, но читателям книга нравится.
