The Grapes of Wrath

http://www.bookdrum.com/books/the-grapes-of-wrath/9780141185064/index.html?bp=y



One of the best books I've read so far, featuring the worst times in America, blessed by John Steinbeck's magical narrative and descriptive way of screaming out heartless infernal pain in silence, since when we read, we read in silence :)

I was 16, fond of internet and I never liked reading books, but with the Grapes of Wrath, it was different. I found this in my father's bookshelves. Trust me, I've read it with tears in my ears in the end and I trust everyone with a heart will as well; for instance, the last paragraphs talked about a man dying of hunger and what a woman had to do to stop him from dying..

The official webmaster of bookdrum.com, Mark Negus, send me a personal email and that really touched me; so I decided to post this to my blogs.  One of the Contributors at Book Drum, bookdrum.com, Maeve Grant, has created a wonderful multimedia profile of the book.

The multimedia profile on the Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck, contributed by Maeve Grant, really is impressive and contains images from all parts of America that pertains to each and every chapter of the book.  From Oklahoma to Winchester rifles, she took great care in assembling the pictures, displaying them with descriptive paragraphs of what the pictures mean and, on some occasions, how it comes into play in the book.  From my perspective, it's nearly a multimedia profile combining the literature of that masterpiece, notwithstanding how she neatly classifies it by chapters.  Now that IS impressively patient !!!


Right now Im hot with fever and my wife's nagging me to go to bed but hey, you call this addictive blogging ! When it comes to my blogs, it's hard, really hard to stop me from writing something, even a line ;)

You've seen American Beauty? American Psycho? American Pie? Now I urge those who haven't read this to please read it and know the real meaning of American Pain..

The Grapes of Wrath IS the American Pain
