I felt an incredible amount of empathy for this man, Jurgis. I had never read Upton Sinclair before this, and frankly all i knew about this book was that it spurred the creation of the FDA and that Sinclair was a Socialist.
For being a 100 years old it read to me like it was written in a very modern fashion.
Honestly, i felt a flood of empathy. Kinda weird experience. lol, but cool.
Come to find out Sinclair wrote OIL! which the movie 'There Will Be Blood' was based on.
