So i just finished East of Eden and thought it was phenomenal. Any other duders read it? or any other Steinbeck for that matter.
I want a book site.
I am a huge fan of Travels with Charley. It's about John and his dog Charley taking a trip around America. It is a very loose structured book, but as in all of his other books, Steinbeck describes the scenery beautifully and his depictions of the people he encounters is fantastic. It is just interesting to see his take on America in a non-fiction manner.
How has nobody mentioned The Grapes of Wrath? Isn't that considered his opus or something?
I have to get around to rereading it. The first time I read it was earlier in high school. I enjoyed it, but I feel that I would have a better appreciation for it now that I am older.
I've only read Of Mice and Men, since it was required reading for English Literature at school. It's a quick, short read, and I enjoyed it. Admittedly, I can't say if I would enjoy his other books, but The Moon is Down in particular interests me. If you're looking a book site the only real option is going to be Goodreads or Shelfari. Whiskey need to do a book site though.
