Where are you up to? I'm finished :-).

Very speedy! I'm about 70% through. Hopefully I'll finish tonight.

Guess that's because I don't have a social life like some. LOL. Seriously though, I thought you would probably finish it last night too as it's a pretty short and easy read.

I've just finished it. About to go out, but I'll be home by 8, so I should be able to get back to CoD CoL tonight.

I didn't like this one so much, mostly for the very visualness (visuality? Whatever) of it. I kept seeing the stage as I was reading and felt I really should be watching it, not reading it.
But I love "Grapes" (so much more satisfying than "Gatsby") which I will re-read before too long, and will try other works, which I have been neglecting for too long.

I can understand having that response, but having read that this was the effect Steinbeck was striving for, I was blown away by how well he achieved it in such a short work. I started listening to
East of Eden
today and I'm going to be interested to see if I like it as much as I like

East of Eden is wonderful, Kim. I hope you like it :)

If you do decide to see the movie, I would recommend the original with Burgess Merideth and Lon Chaney.

I was also very moved by the end of this theatrical tale Kim. Thanks for having introduced me to the works of Steinbeck and for reminding me to read this one. I would also love to see the play someday.
