The Grapes of Wrath

The Grapes of Wrath (paperback) - John Steinbeck It is unusually written. There are chapters that are from a completely different point of view and style of writing. The flow of the book is wonderful in that it moves from person to person to place and to creature in such a way that it does not seem out of place. The changes that the family go through are ones that most people today would never conceive of. Changes in the family dynamic, in their way of life, in their very morals and views of the world. Despite the wonderful body and depth of the novel I must admit that the final page is rather creepy.
