In high school, I went through a John Steinbeck phase. Of all his books, I think this is the best--the most complex plot, the most compelling, and repugnant characters, and of course, the retelling of the Cain and Abel story in sunny California. I've seen the James Dean movie and the Jayne Seymour tv show, and neither one does it justice. This is a book that may stay with you a very long time. It has for me.
