PostSubject: The Grapes Of Wrath by John Steinbeck   Fri Apr 13, 2012 8:54 pm

This has to be one of my favorites. It is quite lengthy, something like 600+ pages. I read it entirely in one day. I could not put it down.

Set during the Great Depression, the novel focuses on the Joads, a poor family of sharecroppers driven from their Oklahoma home by drought, economic hardship, and changes in financial and agricultural industries. Due to their nearly hopeless situation, and in part because they were trapped in the Dust Bowl, the Joads set out for California. Along with thousands of other "Okies", they sought jobs, land, dignity, and a future.
