Everything as stated - well packaged, arrived in okay time. Book (2nd hand) as described. Just what I expected. Everyone should read at least one Steinbeck book as he is such an excellent writer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fititng Conclusion to Series 12 April 2007
By J. R. Schinnerer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This volume is up to the LOA's customary magnificient standards. This is not Steinbeck's best work (although I persist in viewing "Sweet Thursday" as under-valued), but still worth every penny.

Steinbeck fans should have this on their shelves. DeMott's previous editorial work on The Grapes of Wrath establishes him as the editor of choice for any edition, and these Library of America editions are becoming, justifiably, the "standard" texts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not enough 15 Jan 2008
By H. Schneider - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This review refers to the total of the 4 volumes of the LoA Steinbeck.
As a Steinbeck fan and as a reader who really appreciates the LoA volumes, I am not hundred percent satisfied with the set of 4.
It is not Steinbeck that I find fault with (though I do not admire everything that he wrote), but the text selection: the series is short by 1 volume. It ought to have integrated the following, in order to be more complete and have the full Steinbeck:
The Cup of Gold
The War Reporting
Viva Zapata (the script and the essay)
The Russian Journal
The Short Reign of King Pippin
The Journal of East of Eden (which is better than the novel itself, believe me!)
Maybe we can talk the editors into adding a supplementary Steinbeck volume to their otherwise beautiful collection?

5.0 out of 5 stars What a pleasant surprise 15 May 2014
By DJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I'd read Charlie as a youth and wanted to reread it 50 years later. Naturally, it's much better now because I've matured enough to understand it. I've always liked Steinbeck because of how he makes me feel. This road trip story is more light-hearted than other of his work, and there are insights he sneaks in disguised with humor. The pleasant surprise is the other 4 novels included, none of which I've read before. I always feel rich when I have a good supply of unread books on hand that I know I'll like. Kind of like reading book 1 of a trilogy, that you really like, and looking forward to the others.

The publisher, Library of America, is one of my favorites because of quality paper and binding as well as quality writing. These are books I'll pass down to grandchildren, both for content and medium. I typically buy used hardcovers from the online booksellers, or download to my Kindle free from the library or Amazon. Sometimes it turns out to be less expensive to buy new books, like this one that includes 5 novels in 1 book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some of My Favorite Steinbeck Novels, Elegantly Bound 18 Oct 2013
By Jill Clardy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The Library of America editions are a nice size with quality paper and bindings, and are an economical way to own multiple hardbound books from your favorite authors. I took a Continuing Studies course on the works of John Steinbeck at Stanford University a few years ago and the professor recommended these book collections. I have read "Travels with Charley" over and over, and even saw Rocinante at the Steinbeck Museum in Salinas, CA. This collection also includes the very poignant "The Winter of Our Discontent". If you're a Steinbeck fan, you already know that many of his books are worth reading over and over, and the Library of America bound volumes will have a prominent place on your bookshelves.
