East of Eden (Penguin Twentieth Century Classics) by John Steinbeck
East of Eden (Penguin Twentieth Century Classics)

Kimberly Smith, January 3, 2010

I have read other Steinbeck books (Grapes of Wrath, and To a God Unknown) and enjoyed them, but this one is my favorite, and is also possibly the most enjoyable book I have ever read. The characters are very interesting, and the story itself is superb. Steinbeck has a way with detail that pulls you into his stories...he makes you feel like you're right alongside his characters, watching every moment unfold before your eyes. East of Eden is a rich story with a profound undertone.
