The Old Man

Once upon a time in 8th grade, I was introduced to Steinbeck's Grapes of Wrath. Immediately, I thought, "Ick. How long was that turtle description? The whole book just felt way too long. I'm never going to read Steinbeck ever again unless I'm forced to." Well, it's many many many moons later. I have read The Pearl, Of Mice and Men, Cannery Row and Travels with Charley. Somehow, good ol' Steinbeck has grown on me. I'm now onto his epic classic East of Eden. It's HUGE! That's okay I like big books and I cannot lie.
