I got to say, at first, I didn't think the book would be as good as it was. The beginning was very slow and the ending was really weird, but other than that, the book was pretty good.
It really tugged at my emotions because the situations were so sad. Steinbeck wrote about actual events people had experienced and would tell him about, which makes this book all the more sad since it is a real person's story.
Overall, I enjoyed it a lot. I do recommend it to others. It is definitely a book worth reading.
