5.0 out of 5 stars Wrathful Grapes!, 11 Jun. 2016

This review is from: The Grapes of Wrath (Paperback)
I now realise why this was classed as a masterpiece all those years ago. I first read this when I was in the sixth form and am returning to it now when I am 69, for my book club read! I am enjoying it immensely and love the Joad family who are the main focus. The parallels with today's world and the issues of migrants, jobs, pay and many more modern issues such as zero hours contracts is astonishing and quite scary! The phrase, "Some things don't change, do they?", comes to mind!

A wonderful film, beautifully acted and so well photographed! Clear subtitles help with telling the story, but hardly needed!

Had not read this for many years, loved reading it again for my book club! Loved the characters and settings and reminded me why I love so many of current and past American writers! Steinbeck is certainly a giant among many his style is easily absorbed and makes you want read more.

This review is from: Arthur & George (Paperback)
A fascinating book. It is even more fascinating for me as I live very close to where the "outrages " took place. The two main characters are very well drawn and described. A thoroughly good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shadow, what a titile!, 20 Feb. 2011
This review is from: Shadow (Hardcover)
A most rivetting read. A "Couldn't put down" one!! I cried buckets as I have with lots of Michael's stories! So relevant too. The author of "Warhorse" seems to go from strength to strength with his writing, I recommend this book most highly!!
