When I have spare time, I like to read books. I like amazing science fiction books and amusing comedies. Sometimes I read true-to-life stories. They show the life of ordinary people, their feelings and problems. As a rule, these books leave a deep impression on me.

My favourite book is «Gone with the Wind» by Margaret Mitchell.

Margaret Mitchell was born in Atlanta, Georgia, the daughter of an attorney who was the president of the Atlanta Historical Society. All the family were interested in American history and she grew up in an atmosphere of stories about the Civil War. In 1925 she married John Marsh and 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», first published in 1936. This book describes the life of the American people during the Civil War: how they survived being hungry, exhausted, helpless and disappointed; how they struggled for each day; how they loved and supported each other or betrayed. This book is really worth reading. It’s breathtaking, gigantic, incredible, unbelievable, fascinating! It won the Pulitzer Prize, sold over ten million copies, was translated into eighteen languages and was later made into a highly successful film. This book, a record bestseller, was her only published work.
