Maybe I’m missing a point here, or maybe it’s the book that is missing something. Whatever it is, I didn’t like this book. Steinbeck’s writing is fine. It was the plot that was not at all engaging. Also the way the characters kept saying the same thing over and over again in conversations seemed to serve only as a page-filler.

The book could have developed as it progressed, but bang! and there came the absolutely unnecessary ending. It left me feeling emotionally blank with no sympathy for any of the characters. Yes, I noticed the foreshadowing, the themes, and whatnot, but I just didn’t enjoy the story. Perhaps another book, Steinbeck.
