The Sunday Salon: Nov. 29, 2008

I am still reading East of Eden by John Steinbeck. I am really enjoying this book and when I take the time out to read it goes pretty fast. I was hoping to be done with it by Monday so that I can return it to the girl that lent it to me on Tuesday. But that does not look like it is going to happen.

I will say that Steinbeck is really good at the details. I can see everything that he is talking about. I don't like all the characters but they are very well thought out and portrayed in the story. It is good so far and even though I am not even halfway done it is a book that I would recommend. It is not one of those that I would call a page turner, but still good never the less.


  1. I read Grapes of Wrath when I was in high school and I've never read anything else by Steinbeck. I tried a little of East of Eden, but I gave up very quickly. I should give it a try again.

  2. Steinbeck is one of my all-time favorite authors. I loved East of Eden...and Grapes of Wrath too. He is wonderful at setting place. Glad to see you are enjoying this one!

  3. I haven't read John Steinbeck, but I really should. Glad you are enjoying the book.

    Happy Sunday.
