it was amazing

If you think all Steinbeck ever wrote were dreary, depressing stories about dreary, depressing people, this book will change your mind. I spent eight years studying French and lived for half of a year in France, and found this book laugh-out-loud funny. The best description I can give of it (without spoiling the story) is that it is "Candide as written by Mark Twain". Loved it, loved it, loved it!
