    Story
    (1464)

    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.

    "Epic American Odyssey!"

    Where does The Grapes of Wrath rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of my favorites!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Once I got past Dylan Baker channeling Henry Fonda, Tom Joad Jr. stands out as the lynchpin for the story.


    Which character – as performed by Dylan Baker – was your favorite?

    Mrs Joad was my co-favorite character along with her son Tom.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Hardships of the Dust Bowl Migration


    Any additional comments?

    Classic American saga is brought to life here in its rendering. John Steinbeck informs us of our Western Heritage in particular. Dylan Baker does a marvelous job depicting the many characters who populate this story.
