Well, I finally read it - I don't know why it took me so long (actually, I know, I am not a big fan of Steinbeck even if I admit he is a very gifted writer). I bought it a long time ago but I avoided it 'till my daughter read it and asked me about the meaning of the end and I had to admit I had never read it - shame on me!
The language, the atmosphere, the friendship theme, the loneliness motive, all is beautifully built in this novel "in nuce" where everybody and no one is truly innocent or guilty.
A story about the grey of life, and the (once again) desolate difference between dreams and reality.
