I liked the dramatized version but would not read another book by John Steinbeck. It was really boring to read so that's why I got an audio book.
The topic just wasn't for me. The accents distracted from the story line, though they were realistic.
The dancing scenes.
Perhaps, just because it gives a good feel for the time. Probably not in theaters but at home.
The unfortunate thing about the dramatized version is that it cuts out a lot of the book but it makes it more enjoyable to have the drama.
