East of Eden & The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck



"Steinbeck deals with the nature of good and evil in this Salinas Valley saga. The story follows two families: the Hamiltons - based on Steinbeck's own maternal ancestry - and the Trasks, reprising stories about the Biblical Adam and his progeny."--wikipedia

I could not put this book down, I absolutely love it. It's one of my favorites. Steinbeck's writing is detailed and vividly marvelous.

Rating-5

"The book is set in the Great Depression and describes a family of sharecroppers, the Joads, who were driven from their land due to the dust storms of the Dust Bowl. The title is a reference to the Battle Hymn of the Republic."--wikipedia.

It's amazing how people survived the great depression. Steinbeck gave a truthful depiction of the day to day goings on during that dreadful time. It was a wonderful read because it opened up my eyes to see how easy my life is and how I've taken for granted the basic essentials in life. Loved it!

  1. As you said the breitling replica in the picture looks blue. It is important to me that the Rolex Replicas that I buy will look authentic. This is why, although I like more the blue in the original watch, I prefer a cartier replica uk with a black dial that should make it look the same as the original rolex replica sale with the black dial. Can I trust that the actual replica watch with the black dial really looks the same as the original watch with the black dial. The replica watches that I want to buy is not cheap. Therefore I don't see the difficulty to take another picture of the rolex replica sale that you will send to me and email it to me so that I will be convinced that what I believe that I buy is what I really receive. You can ask the rolex replica sale supplier to take another picture, this time in a way that it will not change the color from black to blue.
