The Grapes of Wrath
The Grapes of Wrath | John Steinbeck
The Pulitzer Prize-winning epic of the Great Depression, a book that galvanized—and sometimes outraged—millions of readers.First published in 1939, Steinbeck’s Pulitzer Prize-winning epic of the Great Depression chronicles the Dust Bowl migration of the 1930s and tells the story of one Oklahoma farm family, the Joads—driven from their homestead and forced to travel west to the promised land of California. Out of their trials and their repeated collisions against the hard realities of an America divided into Haves and Have-Nots evolves a drama that is intensely human yet majestic in its scale and moral vision, elemental yet plainspoken, tragic but ultimately stirring in its human dignity. A portrait of the conflict between the powerful and the powerless, of one man’s fierce reaction to injustice, and of one woman’s stoical strength, the novel captures the horrors of the Great Depression and probes into the very nature of equality and justice in America. At once a naturalistic epic, captivity narrative, road novel, and transcendental gospel, Steinbeck’s powerful landmark novel is perhaps the most American of American Classics.This Centennial edition, specially designed to commemorate one hundred years of Steinbeck, features french flaps and deckle-edged pages.For more than sixty-five years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,500 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

I‘m going to finish the first chapter of The Grapes of Wrath, read a little more of Checked Out, then fall asleep to The Battered Body (my eternal optimism has me thinking the main character from the Supper Club mysteries might improve.)

I wanted to post a #24B4Monday check in before bed. At the end of day 2 I finished Saved Me The Plums, and made good dents in The Grapes of Wrath, Lost City of Z, and Exit West. I‘m hoping to finish at least two of these tomorrow.

The flight and plight of the Joads was heartbreaking and relentless— and the parallels w/21st c. issues of immigration and social justice resonate strongly.

IMHO, in the Pantheon of All-Time Great American Novels.

Still on the fence about the audiobook narrator. Nothing wrong with Dylan Baker per se but there were often times I felt he didn‘t quite hit the right note in his delivery/performance. 🎧

John Steinbeck's ability to write in( what I refer to as) an impressionist style comes to the fore in this book. The book is an amazing critique of the American industrial revolution and its effect on the family unit of the working class. There are so many ways to dissect this work of art that this blurb cannot do it justice.

Put this in your must read list

Some days you just have to stop reading the 3 other books you are in the middle of and read a classic!! Forgotten how philosophical this beauty is. I can't help thinking of refugees and California being the U.S. this book is timeless

Crinoline_Laphroaig I from Oklahoma. I never understood why Grapes of Wrath wasn't required reading in school here. Instead I had to read dreadful Lord of the Flies. 🤢 It's been ages since I've read Grapes of Wrath. Need to revisit it. 4mo

This week is Tech Week for the high school musical, West Side Story! My daughter is at school at 7:30am and picked up at 9pm. She was hesitant to ask me about getting her the audio book for The Grapes if Wrath since she‘s falling behind. I hooked her up! Downloaded Libby, showed her how to speed it up and set the timer so she can listen at bedtime. I was shocked to see it‘s 21 hours long, wow! I should probably read it in the near future.

Read this for my book club, and I hated every second. I'm probably one of the few people who found this book tedious and frustrating. My problem was not with the topic, I just felt the way it was written was difficult to follow and almost maniac at times. I couldn't follow who was speaking and the ending! The ending was not an ending! What happened to the family?! #tedious #neveragain #imsorry 😔

Such a truly moving story, and so relevant. I had heard the title many times but had never read the book. In beautifully casual dialogue and poetic description unfolds the story of a family forced from their farm land by a large corporation, and their subsequent migration to California in search of a promised new life. Poverty, hunger and loss accompany the Joads as they adapt to a nomad existence that they had never sought.

I first read this some thirty years ago and loved it. This reread was for an American bestsellers project, and I'm pleased to find it just as powerful as the first time. A few things have changed: I'm less optimistic about the politics, the closing image is much creepier, and jeez but a lot of animals die in random road accidents what's up with that? But still: wow guys you gotta read this.

CoffeeNBooks Great book! I love John Steinbeck! 8mo

Bailedbailed

Bailing again. I figure I want to be a person who HAS READ The Grapes of Wrath but I never want to be a person who IS READING The Grapes of Wrath because Steinbeck annoys the heck out of me and always has. This turtle in the novel? 🐢 It took a page and a half for the turtle to get from a ditch to a road.🍇 😡 👎🏻🤦🏻‍♀️

LiterRohde I‘m probably not going to say anything you don‘t already know, but after a years of reading I am only just learning this after joining Litsy. Readers come in all shapes and sizes. Recommending books is hard. I try to stay objective and review a book with its relative strengths and weaknesses as I see them. I hope that helps people more than an “ugh no” emotional response. I know I‘ve loved some books others have said they hated. (edited) 8mo
LiterRohde And I almost didn‘t take a chance on them because of how many people hated them. Anyway, long story longer 🤪, all I mean to say is that just because it‘s a classic, and therefore you think you should read it, it‘s OK not to. That being said, I do think the turtle story is a nice metaphor for the migrant spirit. But again, to each his own. I think the important thing is you gave it a chance. Did any of this ramble make sense? Sorry. (edited) 8mo

jillrhudy @LiterRohde I know that we are all different. I have tried Steinbeck before. I know he writes very well. On page 10 I felt so dusty I needed a shower. I just can‘t seem to hang with him. I also hate Melville. 8mo
jillrhudy @Aimeesue as turtles go he was a helluva trier. 🐢 8mo
LiterRohde Sorry I mentioned it. I guess it‘s something I learned late in life as I knew this fact but it was only clear once I was part of Litsy, seeing the reviews and discussions of readers from all over the world. I was only trying to be encouraging, as so many on Litsy have been to me. But it looks like from your response that I came off condescending or something. I won‘t bother you with my thoughts again. 8mo
jillrhudy @LiterRohde oh no! Not at all! I liked all you had to say. Exchanging thoughts about books is awesome. 8mo
jillrhudy @LiterRhode I tend to be pretty blunt and flip in discussions from habit on other book sites. I‘ll be more considerate! 8mo

Grapes of Wrath is a rich social commentary chronicling the Joad family‘s journey from Oklahoma to California during the Great Depression. The hardships are inevitable but the strength of the family unit as well as the families they meet on the way is heart-warming, and Steinbeck‘s incredible literary skill conveys this impeccably. A slow-burn of a book with a sobering story and John Chancer‘s narration is spot on. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

KristinaRay This is a book I read in high school that I‘d like to re-read. It really wrecked me when I read it at 15. 11mo
Ms_T @KristinaRay There‘s no question it‘s a hard-hitter 💔 11mo
Izai.Amorim It‘s a great book. We‘ve come a long way since then in labor rights but people take them for granted. They celebrate the gig economy. It‘s rather the dig economy: we‘re digging the grave of labor rights and unions. Should be mandatory read for all startup people. 11mo
Ms_T @Izai.Amorim Very well expressed. It‘s certainly a sobering read. 11mo
