This is one of the greatest books I've read, and it's a beautiful story that also surprised and delighted me many times.

This is America's greatest epic, on par with Moby Dick.

Takes place in 19th-century Mississippi, before slavery was abolished. The dialect takes a bit of effort to get used to.

Liked It

What a unique book! It took me a long time to get around to reading this classic, but I'm glad I finally did.

The book is about the horrors of war and trauma

Loved It

This is not a book for the faint of heart. A well-written and, to some extent, somewhat historically accurate account of one of the bloodiest times in early American history.

Liked It

It turned out to be a very enjoyable book. When I first heard about the book's premise, I assumed it would be a dull read. Hard labor, honesty, and decency were all emphasized as the Joads struggled to provide for their families.

Did Not Like

I have read this a few times- I can't figure out whether it's the story's format or the people themselves that I don't like. It's probably a combination of the two.
