I read this book years ago in high school. It was every bit as good as I remembered. Now that it's done, I think I'll read something happy. Lol.
I'm a big fan of Steinback. But this book has to be as best. You get to find out who the strongest and best people are in this book.
I loved this audiobook. I know I "read" this book on high school, but I probably only skimmed it long enough to turn in a paper. I urge everyone to read, re-read, or listen to this book. It seems like history is poised to repeat itself unless we as Americans stand up and stop it. Soon enough someone will be sitting down to pen the story of the 21st century Joad's. It may be a dust bowl, it may be something else that destroys the crops, it will probably be about finding clean water...unless we can stop it before it happens.
Great book. Weird ending. Guess I'm going to go crank up the Springsteen and fight the man in my overalls now.
Why the hell didn't we read this in school? I can't just be reading this after 26 years!
It's not a fast read or an obsessive one. It's a soft and slow read on a lazy afternoon. The only thing that is a little annoying was when I was wearing headphones the music that would break up the chapters would sometimes seem a lot louder than the chapters themselves, and it was startling and annoying. But other than that it was a really good narration.
