Mount TBR Challenge - The Grapes of Wrath

The Grapes of Wrath (Macmillan Readers) - John Steinbeck, Macmillan Readers, A.W. Steinbeck

And I've finished it. And I thought it was wonderful. It is epic and dramatic on a huge scale, but also very intimate and human.

 

I loved Ma.  She is so strong and honest and dignified. She is the heart of the Joad family and never loses hope even though her dreams are constantly shattered and she has to watch her family go through heartbreak and tragedy.  

 

Damn, I'd forgotten just how good Steinbeck is.
