    Story
    "selfless attempts to get decent wages for working."
    If you could sum up In Dubious Battle in three words, what would they be?

    fighting the good fight


    What was one of the most memorable moments of In Dubious Battle?

    memorable is not the word. but i found these men had high values and they were selfless. they were fighting for every wage earner that was not being paid fairly for their work.


    What about Tom Stechschulte’s performance did you like?

    wonderful. and the reader brings a lot to the book. five star reader!


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

    swimming upstream


    Any additional comments?

    this was not one of my favorite steinbeck books, but still i rated the story a 4. i think steinbeck could write a good book in his sleep. he just can't go wrong. he had so much talent!

    Story
    "Narration was okay. Not Steinbeck's best book."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Certainly. The novel is a good one, but perhaps a little pedantic in its unsubtle social commentary. Just not Steinbeck's best novel, really.


    Did Tom Stechschulte do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Sure. He did fine.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably. I imagine that, if well cast, this could make a charming motion picture.
