novel is not plot driven, but the story focuseson delineating the town and characters of Cannery Row Cannery Row is a good book for a quick read As he always does, Steinbeck implies important short lessons about life in his story about the struggling between the rich and the poor The Pearl Review 8 30 12 Gave 4 starsThe novella is widely entertaining with great plot and characters, still, I was just really hoping that the infant, Coyotito, could have gained something I was anticipating a happy ending I was not hoping for Kino and Juana to become rich after they found the pearl that would go against Steinbeck s message , but I was disappointed when Coyotito was killed off like that Once Kino and Juana found the pearl, I was rooting for them the whole time and sharing that same enthusiasm with Kino hoping that Coyotito would get an education My wishes for a different ending is probably silly though Killing off Coyotito, unfortunately, is probably the only way for Kino to understand how corruptible the pearl became Unlike Juana, Kino did not recognize the pearl s evil until very late actually, too late in the novel.Either way, the techniques used to craft the novella were really clever I liked Steinbeck s use of different characters and the balance between Kino s idealistic dreams and Juana s practicality The story was focused primarily on the plot and characters, so it was not a dull read not too much description on setting involved this time The read is not too difficult or long, so I recommend to everyone I read this in one sitting.East of Eden Review 8 31 10 Gave 5 starsI was astonished at how profound this book was I loved how the symbolism of the biblical story between Cain and Abel was included And despite this being the first time reading Steinbeck s work, I can totally see why he said that it was his best work He transitioned the story so perfectly well despite having so many characters His meandering throughout the book necessarily added the effect of the story The symbolism was creatively crafted into Cain and Abel And, of course, East of Eden left an important message to its readers through a heartfelt, memorable story Timshel Although I admit being shocked when I first saw how inevitably long East of Eden was I had to read it as a summer homework assignment , it was very entertaining as a matter of fact It wasn t boring at all I really didn t think of East of Eden as one huge, never ending book anyways East of Eden was really like a big collection of four books put together Like a series of books I recommend to everyone REALLY ONE

s authoritative edition of John Steinbeck s writings shows him continuing to explore new subject matter and new approaches to storytelling These four novels display the versatility and emotional directness that have made Steinbeck one of America s most enduringly popular writersThe Moon Is Down, set in an unnamed Scandinavian country under German occupation, dramatizes the transformation of ordinary life under totalitarian rule and the underground struggle against the Nazi invaders Told largely in dialogue, the book was conceived simultaneously as a novel and a play, and was successfully produced on Broadway Although some American critics found its treatment of the German characters too sympathetic, The Moon Is Down was widely read in occupied areas of Europe, where it was regarded as an inspiring contribution to the resistanceIn Cannery RowSteinbeck paid tribute to his closest friend, the marine biologist Ed Ricketts, in the central character of Doc, proprietor of the Western Biological Laboratory and spiritual and financial mainstay of a cast of philosophical drifters and hangers on The comic and bawdy evocation of Monterey s sardine canning district a poem, a stink, a grating noise, a quality of light, a tone, a habit, a nostalgia, a dream has made this one of the most popular of all of Steinbeck s novelsSteinbeck s long involvement with Mexican culture is distilled in The PearlExpanding on an anecdote he heard in Baja California about a local boy who had found a pearl of unusual size, Steinbeck turned it into a parable of the corrupting influence of sudden wealth The Pearl appears here with the original illustrations by Jos Clemente OrozcoAmbitious in scale and original in structure, East of Edenrecounts the violent and emotionally turbulent history of a Salinas Valley family through several generations Drawing on Biblical parallels, encompassing a period stretching from the Civil War to World War I, and incorporating, as counterpoint to the central story, some of the actual history of Steinbeck s mother s family, East of Eden is an epic that explores the writer s deepest and most anguished concerns within a landscape that for him had mythic resonance East of Eden was a recent selection of Oprah s Book Club Although I only read East of Eden from this edition, reading this masterpiece has given me insight into what I believe is a perfect novel East of Eden is a sweeping epic not just of the Trask family but of the American experience in the West at the turn of the 20th century It is so beautifully written and the characters are developed so carefullyits an inspiring piece of work reinterpreting the story of original sin and of Cain and Abel.
