The Red Pony | John Steinbeck
post image

I‘m a Steinbeck fan. I love The Grapes of Wrath, East of Eden and Of Mice and Men, but this one is a low pick for me. One, it was not all one story like I thought but 4 short stories. Two, I think maybe it was not timed well in my life because it was just a downer. I know Steinbeck‘s books in general are not heaping with happiness and I went in prepared for an Old Yeller feeling but still not a favorite. #authoramonth #march #aam #Booked2023

mandarchy I love Steinbeck too and found this when I inherited my library. I had never heard of it and thought I had read everything by him. I wish I could go back and unread it. I wouldn't say it's the worst book he wrote, because I am sure someone could love it. But I hated it. 2mo
Bookzombie Yes, I think my pick was based more on that I still think it was well written. I‘m not usually triggered or put off by animal deaths (not that I like them, but I read horror quite a bit and I think that comes with the genre sometimes). However, this book just seemed full of it and I‘m not sure that so much was needed to give us a feeling of growing up in that time and place. 2mo

Oh my gosh, I don‘t know if I can put into words how much I loved this book! I seem to have a witchy theme going recently and was so pleased to see the parallels between this and Hester.

Amazing! Wow! Worth the wait to get to it, worth worth the 751 pages. This series is truly a force to be reckoned with and the characters are strong, passionate, and daring. My goodness, what a spectacular and sexy world Maas has created. #chunkster #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks #March #Bookspin

TheAromaofBooks Yay!!! 3mo
dylanisreading I still need to read this one. Glad you enjoyed it! 3mo
