Steinbeck's gift to travelers.
When Charley got well.
Steinbeck. A friend who knew John Steinbeck say that Gary Sinise sounds just like him with the same inflections. Sinise did a superb job on this narration, perhaps one of the best audio books I've listened too from a narration standpoint.
The story is read unabridged and runs 20 plus hours. It need to be savored over several days driving time (preferably while on a road trip.
This was John Steinbeck's last work (some two years after his Nobel Prize) and I suspect he knew he was dying. This is not classic Steinbeck, but rather an insight into the man himself. We should all have a companion as tolerant as Charley (his poodle).
