  1. This is a story about the endurance of the human soul, about choosing to be who you would like to be rather than believing you were cut with a mold that can t be broken But also it s a story about forgiveness, the freedom of choice and the long road one must walk between one s beginning and one s end, and all the causes and effects in between.Steinbeck s masterpiece, for to call it anything less is impossible, has left me with a sense of loss When I came to the end of this epic tale of family an [...]


  2. East of Eden had been on my reading list for 15 years I wish I had read it then This book is a gift to the mind and heart One of the many brilliant things about this book is the beautiful character development transcends the time period and geographic location It is about the human condition, the exploration of good and evil and the ability to discover your own path I will read this book again and again Thank you, John Steinbeck The only downside is, I am having a tough time finding my rebound b [...]


  3. I finished reading this about 2 weeks ago and have now had time to ingest it for a while This is easily in the top 5, if not top 3, or perhaps, in time, even THE top book I have ever read I love Grapes, Cannery Row, and Mice Men, but I love this one even now It s a timeless classic about good and evil and the privelege of choosing which one we want to be defined by.The digital version of the book c 2011 I read contained way too many typos though At least 50 100 that I noticed, including some tha [...]


  4. With the title of East of Eden, one would think this was a straight retelling of the Cain and Abel story in Genesis it is so much.This is a story of family, honor, love, pain, success, failure and free will The Cain and Abel parallel runs through 2 sets of brothers and even the 2 woman involved with each set In Charles and Adam then Cal and Aron, there is the perception of good and bad With Cathy and Abra, it seems a little black and white However, the ideal of free will changing a path is alway [...]


  5. What can possibly be stated about this book that already hasn t been This book is easily one of the best pieces of literature out there by one of the best writers that has ever graced this earth Most reading experiences are often described as journeys, but this one is quite literally so The story goes across generations of characters and the lives they lead Even when I found myself attached to a character and upset when their part in the story was over, I found myself becoming attached the new o [...]


  6. The story of how two generations of an extended family live their lives in misery and strife, and then die, usually horribly.I give up In The Grapes of Wrath at least there was some glorious writing amid the misery, but here the writing ranges from mediocre to poor, with some of the most unrealistic dialogue I ve ever read The Chinaman who manages to convey all the worst stereotyping while supposedly showing how silly the stereotyping is The ranchers who sit around discussing the meaning of the [...]


  7. Because East of Eden was written in 1952 it is not cluttered with the false sentimentality that is found on soo much modern writings The story concerns the interwoven lives of two families living in the Salinas Valley in California just before the outbreak of the first world war It is also a study in sibling competitions for the affections of parents and at times makes for uncomfortable reading The most unforgettable character in this story is Cathy Ames for reasons that any reader will always r [...]
