Probably my favourite book.,
This review is from: The Grapes of Wrath (Paperback)
I have to admit that I started and gave up with this book a couple of times. However, I ended up having it on me on a ten hour plane journey and I had the choice of watching Ice-Age 3 (for the 2nd time, it had been shown on the outbound flight as well) or trying to get stuck into Grapes of Wrath.
All I can say is that you grow to love and feel for the characters that Steinbeck portrays to such an extent that I don't think I will ever forget them. All of their personality traits and behaviour are embedded in my mind as if I really had known these people and followed them on their bold, epic and tragic journey across America.
An incredible book! One that I wished could have gone on forever: but what a powerful ending!
