Shocking and controversial when it was first published in 1939, Steinbeck's Pulitzer prize-winning epic remains his undisputed masterpiece. Set against the background of dust bowl Oklahoma and Californian migrant life, it tells of the Joad family, who, like thousands of others, are forced to travel West in search of the promised land. Their story is one of false hopes, thwarted desires and broken dreams, yet out of their suffering Steinbeck created a drama that is intensely human, yet majestic in its scale and moral vision; an eloquent tribute to the endurance and dignity of the human spirit.

Another classic steinbeck, this is deservedly one of the best novels ever written. Unrewarding, but true to life and a tremendous read, in would really recommend this!

One of my favorite novels. Well written,at times this book will leave you thinking just how well off you are when at times you had felt sorry for yourself. And totally agree with the other reveiwer about the chapters in between the story giving social commentary being years ahead of its time. This is a book i didnt want to put down once i started it and one that ill most certainly read again.

Incredible and intelligent read. The chapters between the main stories are pure genius with social comentary far ahead of its time. As such a widely acclaimed novel in America l was really suprised at the references to socialism and anarchism written in a time it would have been dangerous to do so.
