-John Steinbeck-

The problem with most people is that we judge everything in general by first impressions. I think that's why no one ever likes assigned reading. I was completely dreading having to read this book, and believe me, the first page did absolutely nothing to change my mind...

But then, I read farther into the book and this crazy thing happened: I actually liked it! Steinbeck provides an intriguing look at the battles against both the Great Depression and an even greater demise, loneliness.


I was shocked by how much I liked this book. Cannery Row might have been too "out there" for me, but I definitely recommend this classic.
