Soap Opera

Would you try another book from John Steinbeck and/or the narrators?

I liked the dramatized version but would not read another book by John Steinbeck. It was really boring to read so that's why I got an audio book.

What could John Steinbeck have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

The topic just wasn't for me. The accents distracted from the story line, though they were realistic.

Which scene was your favorite?

The dancing scenes.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Perhaps, just because it gives a good feel for the time. Probably not in theaters but at home.

Any additional comments?

The unfortunate thing about the dramatized version is that it cuts out a lot of the book but it makes it more enjoyable to have the drama.
