Book Synopsis


The Grapes of Wrath is an American realist novel written by John Steinbeck and published in 1939. The book won the National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize for fiction, and it was cited prominently when Steinbeck was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1962.

Set during the Great Depression, the novel focuses on the Joads, a poor family of tenant farmers driven from their Oklahoma home by drought, economic hardship, agricultural industry changes, and bank foreclosures forcing tenant farmers out of work. Due to their nearly hopeless situation, and in part because they are trapped in the Dust Bowl, the Joads set out for California. Along with thousands of other "Okies", they seek jobs, land, dignity, and a future.

    What they say is true: NOTHING is free! Very disappointed that huge important events were not in the book. Pay the $5 for the book and save yourself the aggravation and confusion!

    By Vieuarvo
    This particular version of the book is missing at lest 30 pages in two chapters, so far, I have not finish the book. I take the price reflects the shortness of the book. I like to read the e-books with the actual book next to it. E-book are easier on the eye because you can make the letters bigger. But this book will short change you.
