An enjoyable read, but...a non-ending. (Is that a spoiler?) Steinbeck's great descriptions and characters are here. The characters are flawed but sympathetic, with the possible exception of one who is perhaps all good, but nothing really comes of that. There's no real losers or winners, just a bunch of people that go through an experience together that alters them all, at least momentarily. It is like tossing up a jar of marbles: In the end, some fall back into the jar, some land somewhere else and some teeter on the edge--which way will they fall? Still, I always want to curl up and disappear in Steinbeck.
