    Story
    (1279)

    At once naturalistic epic, captivity narrative, road novel, and transcendental gospel, Steinbeck’s, The Grapes of Wrath is perhaps the most American of American classics. Although it follows the movement of thousands of men and women and the transformation of an entire nation during the Dust Bowl migration of the 1930s, The Grapes of Wrath is also the story of one Oklahoma farm family, the Joads, who are forced to travel west to the promised land of California.

    Dan Harlow says: "Almost more relevant now than when it was written"
    "Great!!"

    What did you love best about The Grapes of Wrath?

    What a wonderful story. I remember listening to my Grandparents talk about when they had to go to California, and it really hit home to hear how everyone had to live and what they had to endure to keep our family together. What tough honorable people they were.


    What other book might you compare The Grapes of Wrath to and why?

    I can't think of any.


    What about Dylan Baker’s performance did you like?

    He was awesome, his voice reminded me of Henry Fonda in the movie version. And the different voices he used was great.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried almost all the way through.


    Any additional comments?

    I haven't heard anything close to this yet...it will be hard to find anything else that will keep my interest...ha ha!
