When John Steinbeck wrote this book he had no inkling that it would attain such widespread recognition, though he did have high hopes for its effectiveness. And yet The Grapes of Wrath is in some ways an old-fashioned book, with roots in two major American fictional traditions: the masculine escape /adventure myth and the feminine tradition.

The Grapes of Wrath, the best-known novel by John Steinbeck, published in 1939. Steinbeck masterfully depicted the struggle to retain dignity and to preserve the family in the face of disaster, adversity, and vast, impersonal commercial influences. It arouses sympathy for the struggles of migrant farmworkers. When preparing to write the novel, Steinbeck wrote: "I want to put a tag of shame on the greedy bastards who are responsible for this.

**Before I do my ‘review’ I have to say something re: the movie vs the book** wow..they really cut the movie in half to accommodate the story! In HS ‘The Grapes of Wrath’ next to ‘Mice & Men’ were required reading. I’m surprised I wasn’t crying on a daily basis! I haven’t read the novel since 1978, but always watched the movie..besides a couple of characters that didn’t match the book theres the subject but no if anyone has to do any required reading and ‘Grapes of Wrath’ is one..don’t watch the movie first ???? One more thing Dylan Baker is now my favorite narrator! (I listened as well, thank God?) What a performance..he sounded like ‘Henry Fonda to the tee! Excellent narration!

Now onto a few words about this exceptional novel. Since John Steinbeck always wrote books re: the Great Depression, he had an ability to understand their fear on a daily basis. If Steinbeck were alive today, his novels would probably be very close to how they were over 75 years ago.

His books, especially ‘Grapes of Wrath’ dealt with racism, extreme poverty, family problems not far from the ones today. This novel was the perfect example.

The descriptive words he used in explaining their hurt, their living environment , lack of housing, etc. was spot on. I closed my eyes listening & even sometimes reading because I wanted to be there, to try and understand what the Depression years were really like..they were not ‘The Walton’s’! This was real..not knowing what tomorrow would bring for themselves or their family.

I’m so glad I decided to read and listen again...every single person must read ‘The Grapes of Wrath’ and realize at one time in the 20th Century individuals were living worse than dogs & cats...and unfortunately sometimes it doesn’t sound too far from reality today.

I’ve been honored to read a masterpiece!
This book has been called Steinbeck's masterpiece, and it's not hard to see why.

The Grapes of Wrath is so completely, so guturally human that it's practically impossible not to become engrossed in the life stories of the main characters. Some have complained that the characters are flat, that there is little growth. I find this only partially true. There is much to read between the lines. One who reads closely can find much growth in the characters of Ma Joad, Rose of Sharon, Tom, and even Al. Then there is the former preacher, Casy, whose growth occurred before the Joads' story even began -- but Steinbeck offers glimpses of that growth in his stories to the Joads.

This careful examination of the Dust Bowl, the Great Depression, and the effects of corporatism and the ensuing expansion of poverty is insightful and heart-rending. Migrant farmers find themselves picking fruit and vegetables to sell for mere pennies a day, meanwhile they are unable to even feed their own families. They watch as corporate farms burn and destroy fruit and vegetables to keep the prices high and prevent the starving from stealing the "extra." They see acre upon acre of land go unused, but they cannot even plant a few carrots because it is owned by the banks and the migrants are charged with trespassing. The "Okies," as they are called, are treated worse than animals. Families break apart and the old, sick, or very young die of malnutrition and sickness. Meanwhile, the corporate farms and banks continue to put small farms out of business and scheme to keep prices high and wages low. The stark contrast can be seen in a corporate farm owner, decked out in gold chains, wryly offering work to the desperate Joads in the midst of a strike.

I have heard it said that it is only in recent years that people are crying "class warfare." The Grapes of Wrath is a poignant example of class warfare before the term was even coined. This book is a time capsule of times passed -- and history will repeat itself if we don't learn from the lesson Steinbeck has to teach.
Can’t wait to finish this! I saw the movie version when I was 12 and to this day(59yrs old) Grapes of Wrath continues to be one of the most impactful works in my life? Admittedly movie versions and the book are different but there is no value lost. For times sake I am utilizing Audible and doing some reading. The main narrator sounds similar to Henry Fonda! The story is gritty,at times sad, maybe depressing to some. But I find hope,honesty and resiliency and the strength of family as the main themes. The Depression and the dust bowl era affected that part of the country , for many their lives were changed forever but for many there was a rebirth and relocation that showed the strong spirit that carried them to the next chapter of their lives. A must read, if any have ever come from a background of poverty and having to fight and scrape for anything, you will feel the connection here.

This edition is fantastic with its detailed introduction to Steinbeck, the influences in his life which led him to writing this book, his struggles with other writings he didn't have published.....
Too unfortunate that HS AP & Lit101 students couldn't have this well presented information a couple decades ago, when we were forced to read the book & regurgitate highfalutin claptrap.
Boyd Cable?! Definitely NOT Steinbeck!
I've read it several times. A hauntingly, achingly, astonishingly graceful work deserving of the Pulitzer received as well as contributing to the later Nobel Steinbeck received for his work as a whole. The intercalary chapters are usually long prose poems which lucidly describe characters and their times. Anyone who researches the history of that time and the locales knows the veracity and honesty of the book. A novel, yes but so much more. It is an in-depth symphony depicting circumstances, thoughts, emotions, and actions of the Joad family and those whom they meet in their long westward journey. It is Exodus, and a 20th century re-enactment of our American pioneer ancestors as they had moved west earlier.

The story is one of the more profound stories you will ever read! Too bad there only five stars available to rate it as it deserves ten!
