    Set in familiar Steinbeck territory, To a God Unknown is a mystical tale, exploring one man's attempt to control the forces of nature and, ultimately, to understand the ways of God.

    Michael says: "My Favorite Steinbeck; Terrible and Beautiful"
    "Very, very slow... pacing is terrible"

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The description and dialogue are pretty decent, but the book is really, really slow. You deserve an award if you can finish it.


    Has To a God Unknown turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Pacing... it just really dragged. You can tell that Steinbeck had trouble finishing it.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Spoiler alert!The main character finding out his brother had cut the roots off the tree. Outside of that, everything else was predictable.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from To a God Unknown?

    I'm not sure outside of scrapping it completely. It needs to be about 1/4 of its current size. There is just so much unnecessary content between the conflict. You are constantly wondering when it will pick up again.


    Any additional comments?

    Skip it.

    If this didn't have John Steinbeck's name on it, it would have an average score of 1-2.
