I think the audio version and the movie had similar sounding voices. I think this gave me a good picture of the condition. The detail of the book over the movie brought back this period as told to me by my parents. I should have read this book fifty years ago but did not. Better late than never thanks to this unabridged reading of this very important piece of work.
Atlas Shrugged, the 3 Hunger Games books and the Grapes of Wrath all have a connection for me. Since they are all dealing with the haves and have nots, it is interesting for me to access my own beliefs about hard work, privilege and economic markets.
I see Henry Fonda in this story and it was nice that the voice matched the picture in my mind.
The movie was perfect and should be left alone.
Being forced off the land by a tractor or being replaced by a robot in the factory seem to bring the 1930's conundrum right into 2012.
