I might have an unpopular opinion when it comes to this book, as it was fine but nothing fantastic for me. I admit, I read this in middle school, nearly 25 years ago, and never went back to read it again.
I tend not to like books about awful things as the main plot.

I don’t mind when bad things happen, or circumstances change, but when the entire book is about the pain uuvas suffering of a family, it doesn’t usually rise to the top of my TBR.
I might consider giving this one another chance, but you have some major convincing to do.
I like Steinbeck, too, so it’s not so much an issue with the author as it is with the topic. The writing is strong. The imagery is good. The characters are well drawn. The setting is very detailed. But when it comes to the plight of joohn family against the hardships all around them, ia a difficult read.
Part of my issue may have been a connection with the story. While I steibbeck don’t have a real-life connection with my favorite books mysteries, thrillers I usually don’t read things about this time period or space for those reasons. If the characters called to me, I might have liked it more. Don’t get me wrong And it’s got a place in the world of classics.
And it helped highlight a lot of wrongs that people weren’t aware of. And maybe because I learned those lessons from other books and other places, this one just didn’t seem all that top notch to me. That said, it’s Steinbeck, so there is something of value here. No one can tell reality like he can. About Me For those new to me or my reviews I read A LOT. I write Steinbrck LOT.

For me, it was too long, especially for the plot that unraveled. It could have been around pages shorter, and it still would have been a decent book.
This is a story of the Joad’s family, and their desperate journey from Olkahoma, where the bank took their farm, to California, where they hoped to find work.

They had hardly any money, and were prepared to become migrant workers, despite the fact of the rather bleak outlook. After reading up on this story, I was highly expecting a story of misery, despair and devastation.
Even though it was all of these things, the story also had a good amount of humor, poignancy and the main attribute to the story, was the study on human nature. This book is all based on social justice and the huge impact this has on families. irx
Las uvas de la ira / The Grapes of Wrath : John Steinbeck :
I loved the first few chapters, more than I did the rest of the book. It just got more depressing with each page I turned, and I was hoping something good would happen for the Joad family. The ending for me, apart from a little odd, was way too abrupt. There was no satisfaction there for me, and I think more could have been done for a better ending.
That said, I enjoyed Steinbeck’s writing style, and his ability to set the scene is incredible. It won’t be my last Steinbeck novel. View all 6 comments. A searing tale of social injustice and so on, and I’m in no way disputing that, but it’s funny to see which parts of a book really stay with you.
There’s a passage early on in the story when the Joad family are setting off in their beat-up old jalopy to make the long trek to California. The car is not in good shape, but the driver knows all its weaknesses intimately and coaxes it along. He becomes one with the machine: At many points in my life, I have found myself responsible for A searing tale of social injustice and so on, and I’m in no way disputing that, but it’s funny to see which parts of a book really stay with you.
At many points in my life, I have found myself responsible for a piece of software other ura are relying on which is nearing the end of its useful existence, and I almost always think of that car. Steinbeck described it very well. View all 5 comments. Ah Steinbeck, you sick and twisted man how the hell did your mind work?!

Las Uvas De La Ira/ the Grapes Of Wrath by Steinbeck, John
Well, I was wrong. This novel just happens to have one of the greatest endings of any novel I have ever read in my entire life. I recommended trudging through the novel just for the ending.
With very little money and a bleak promise of things to come, they set out on a difficult journey to become migrant workers despite the hardships and lose they face. I thought it was going to be a depressing story about human misery and devastation. I was mostly right, but there was also irreverent humour, emotional poignancy, study of human nature and it’s irrepressible spirit both good and bad.
I really enjoyed the first few chapters a lot more than the rest due to the humour and banter the ex-priest is the best before everything goes downhill in the never ending misery encountered by the Joad family. I just couldn’t help wishing for some relief from all the horrible series of unfortunate events and for some much needed humour.
Also, the dramatized audiobook ended on a cliff-hanger. I wanted to see the Joad family find a semblance of happiness, security and at least the possibility of it. I didn’t like the abrupt ending, I wanted some closure. I don’t know much about American history and I have only read one American classic before, but I’ve learned a lot from this book.
I really like Steinbecks writing style and his ability to bring each scene to life and make you feel like you are there. I can’t wait to read another Steinbeck in the near future. I enjoyed this more than I feared I would. The Joads felt like real people.
