Gripping and relevant
- Only Living Boy In
The best story - ever ! Awesome narrator !!!!!!!!!
Yes, great story of the ever present struggle of Little Man and Big Man and how Group Man must be smarter than Small Men are dumb.
The narrator is fantastic - changes sound to capture all the characters (voices, personalities, etc). Steinbeck is the Yoda of exposing and exploring the nature of men. He brings in thru the back door and into the living room without telling you which house you are in
Didn't want to "put it down", but it is pretty heady stuff, so you might need a break in the middle.
This is better than reading it and better than a movie
- Inventing Mostly
