Gone With The Wind

Just a quick question about this book....

Are we supposed to like Scarlett O'Hara? I'm about 2/3 through the book and she is just coming across as so horrible and selfish! I thought it was supposed to be romantic but I'm just not getting that at all...

Maybe I'm just not into that kind of romantic book though, as the two most horrible characters I've ever read are Heathcliff and the woman from Wuthering Heights. Before reading that I'd never hated characters quite so much, but Scarlett O'Hara is coming close.

Overall I am enjoying the book (although I think it is way too long) as I want to know what happens to the rest of her family and friends, but I just don't like her at all!
