I know many people are against "Scarlett" since it wasn't written by Margaret Mitchell and it's obviously not of the same literary quality, however I think it's a good read anyway! We finally get closure, which is very important for me because I've always wanted to find out what happened to Scarlett and Rhett and if she managed to win him back or not.
One of the biggest criticisms of the novel is that Scarlett didn't stay in Atlanta, that Ripley made her leave because it was just too difficult to deal with the reconstruction of the city/society and with the previous foes. Nonetheless, I think it was perfectly plausible that Scarlett didn't remain because she wasn't accepted by ANYONE anymore, the only person who had made her be part of it all was Melanie and she had died - not to mention that Rhett had left her too, which in the people's eyes was all her fault (and in a way it was). Scarlett had no one to turn to, no help nor emotional support, so it made sense she went on looking for it in Charleston where Rhett was. Actually, her journey to Charleston was brilliantly handled and it was very Scarlett-like how she tried to 'fit in' in with the 'creme de la creme' of the Charlestonians, but utterly failed.
