Grapes of Wrath Classic Read

Grapes of Wrath First Edition Cover

The classic book our group read was Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck. This is the video of our discussion.

We didn’t really have any good ideas and Dragan said to do Grapes of Wrath, since he already had a copy of the book.I have read Of Mice and Men and The Pearl both by John Steinbeck before so I expected something of the same vibe. Such as things about the american dream and like the tough life of people in the lower class. I also expected a lot of Christianity references. I think I got what I expected. I think this book had a lot more realism. To be honest, it was sort of depressing. I think I learned a lot from this book about the history of America during the Great Depression. Mainly about the lives people when through and the harsh conditions which you can’t control in life. Steinbeck sort of taught a history lesson with the chapters in between the story about the general background of the setting of the story.

I don’t know what I will read for my next book.
