What other readers are saying about this title:
At first, I wasn't at all excited to read "The Grapes of Wrath" for my school project. It started out slow, and I wasn't confident that I would ever finish. But as I got deeper into the book, I found myself wanting to know the ending, even though John Steinbeck's books are often depressing. "The Grapes of Wrath" is about the Joads, an Oklahoma family who gets kicked off the land that their family has owned for generations. It relates the struggles of the Joads' trip to California in their untrustworthy car, and how they manage to survive once they get there. I would only recommend "The Grapes of Wrath" to people who can stick with a slow moving book.

I would hardly be the first person to express my admiration and appreciation of Steinbeck’s brilliance as a writer. He earned his place as one of the best writers in, and of, our country; there is nothing I can add. By way of sketching the book, it is history, sensitivity, and social commentary through storytelling based throughly on reality.
