Absolutely incredible.

The first book that has made me cry in ages. I read it as fast as I could, on crowded buses, during dinner, in the bathtub, and I still couldn't get through it fast enough. Steinbeck's depth and authenticity of characters left me vulnerable and slightly unnerved. And the final chapter left me with tears falling onto my plate of apricot and dijon-glazed pork tenderloin.

A new favorite of all time for sure.
