East of Eden by John Steinbeck
East of Eden

DC-Portland, January 2, 2013

Just finished this classic work by John Steinbeck, which he felt was his best work. I very much agree as this was without doubt one of the best books i've ever read. Set amid his families history in the Salinas Valley, California. It tells many stories which highlight the struggles of people battling the good and evil in each of us, based on the biblical Cain & Abel tale. I was able to relate to many of the scenarios described and took a lot away from them.
Steinbecks writing is wonderfully descriptive both of people and the places. He is able to draw incredible depictions of both the loveliness and horror that is in humans.
An absolute MUST read for all!

Zorro: A Novel by Isabel Allende

Old school swashbuckler at it's best. Brings an even greater appreciation to this exciting legendary character. A must read and perfect for studying Spanish in the original.
