The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck
The Grapes of Wrath

hunterblueocean, October 2, 2006

John Steinbeck is one of my favorite authors and I absolutely love this book! John uses such vivid descriptions you feel as though you right there with the characters. He paints a powerful picture of classic struggle. His writing is so amazing that you feel and breathe each character and you are caught up in their lives and struggles. An amazing book and a brilliant author! The first time I read this book it was for school but the second time I read it was for sheer pleasure and I wasn't one bit disapointed.
