I enjoyed this book much more than Of Mice & Men. His writing in this novel was much more easy flowing and was a comfortable read. I think he tried a little too much with the Cain & Able angle and it got old after some time. He developed the characters nicely, though. Samuel Hamilton is one of the more lovable characters in literature while Cathy Ames is one of the more frightening and horrible! All in all, this novel improves my ranking of Steinbeck. Like some of his characters he's not the greatest at what he does, but he's far from the worst at the same time.
