My rating is based on my memory of reading it in high school, when it made a huge impact on me as a pinko 10-grader in a privileged suburban high school. Don't know how the writing would hold up if I were to revisit it now, but at the time, the compelling descriptions and the vivid characterisation stayed with me. Tom Joad and his family, as well as the post millenarian Christian socialist Preacher Casey stoked my imagination. Even the parts that were off-putting at the time, such as Rosasharn suckling decrepit, starving Grandpa Joad with the milk flowing for her baby who died at the side of the road enhanced in a small way my humanity and awe of the complex mystery of life. But when I think of the book now, fifty years later, it is with sadness and anger that the problems of economic migrant refugees, which I then thought belonged to a long ago past, are more urgent than ever, yet an issue politicians are too cowardly to solve in a humanitarian, enlightened way. I think I will read it again, and I recommend you do, too. ( )

Oh, the style! Oh, the language! Oh, the Joads!!! Somehow I have gotten through life (which includes an English degree) without reading any Steinbeck, but now I have seen the light. I have read many excellent books by excellent American authors expounding excellently upon American themes, but this is the first book that, by the time I was half-way through, I marvelled at how each sentence blew my mind, realizing, "Wow...I am reading the Great American Novel." Great fiction moves us and uncovers a greater level of understanding in our souls, which is precisely what this novel inspired in me. Each and every page saturated my heart and mind, and every scene, every sentiment still rings true today. I understand the agony of the Dust Bowl and the Depression so much more deeply now as well as an insight into poverty and survival I never before experienced. At first I was intimidated by the legacy and sheer weight (literally) of the book and went to it more out of duty than anything else, but my expectations were exceeded 5000%. If you've got some compassion and intestinal fortitude, you really ought to read this book.

The Grapes of Wrath is one of Americas greatest novels. Set during the middle of the great depression, it follows the history of the Joad family as they are forced to leave their farm in Oklahoma as a result of both the dust bowl catastrophe and the desire of banks to consolidate farms into bigger corporate farms. As climate and economic refugees, the family expects to find California to be a land of milk and honey with plenty of money to be earned picking fruit. Instead, they are confronted with violence and the exploitation of the California farmers who realize that there are so many people desperate for work that they only need to offer starvation wages.

Although written many years ago, the story has interest for people today since it deals with climate change and economic exploitation. As such, it would be a useful addition to a course on Critical Economic Theory. It also offers up universal themes of family and fortitude. The book leaves the reader with vivid, long-lasting images and portraits of the main characters. ( )

I think the sentence that I remember most is when ma is trying to buy some meat and sugar at the company store. The store clerk puts in a dime or nickel so she can have her sugar and she turns around and says that she realizes that the only people who help poor people are other poor people. I was struck how the idea of family changes throughout the book. The family is more than just one family unit, but through trials family is the others in the community who are in the same situation. They form a sense of family out of their common tragedy and struggle. a very intense read and very dark. ( )

This was the last of the triad in my introduction to Steinbeck. It's brilliant in several ways, and I can see why it is widely regarded as his masterpiece. I enjoyed the interspersion of short chapters describing specific personas and places of the Dust Bowl era. I appreciated Steinbeck's deep ability to understand and characterize people and their motivations. Beyond all that, the story itself is engaging. It was only at the end where I finally found a criticism. I didn't like how it ended, and especially the abruptness with which it wrapped up. ( )

Seventy years after The Grapes of Wrath was published, its themes – corporate greed, joblessness – are back with a vengeance. ... The peaks of one's adolescent reading can prove troughs in late middle age. Life moves on; not all books do. But 50 years later, The Grapes of Wrath seems as savage as ever, and richer for my greater awareness of what Steinbeck did with the Oklahoma dialect and with his characters.

It is Steinbeck's best novel, i.e., his toughest and tenderest, his roughest written and most mellifluous, his most realistic and, in its ending, his most melodramatic, his angriest and most idyllic. It is "great" in the way that Uncle Tom's Cabin was great—because it is inspired propaganda, half tract, half human-interest story, emotionalizing a great theme.

Steinbeck has written a novel from the depths of his heart with a sincerity seldom equaled. It may be an exaggeration, but it is the exaggeration of an honest and splendid writer.
Mr. Steinbeck's triumph is that he has created, out of a remarkable sympathy and understanding, characters whose full and complete actuality will withstand any scrutiny.

Now the going was easy, and all the legs worked, and the shell boosted along, waggling from side to side. A sedan driven by a forty-year-old woman approached. She saw the turtle and swung to the right, off the highway, the wheels screamed and a cloud of dust boiled up. Two wheels lifted for a moment and then settled. The car skidded back onto the road, and went on, but more slowly. The turtle had jerked into its shell, but now it hurried on, for the highway was burning hot.

And now a light truck approached, and as it came near, the driver saw the turtle and swerved to hit it. His front wheel struck the edge of the shell, flipped the turtle like a tiddly-wink, spun it like a coin, and rolled it off the highway. The truck went back to its course along the right side. Lying on its back, the turtle was tight in its shell for a long time. But at last its legs waved in the air, reaching for something to pull it over. Its front foot caught a piece of quartz and little by little the shell pulled over and flopped upright. The wild oat head fell out and three of the spearhead seeds stuck in the ground. And as the turtle crawled on down the embankment, its shell dragged dirt over the seeds. The turtle entered a dust road and jerked itself along, drawing a wavy shallow trench in the dust with its shell. The old humorous eyes looked ahead, and the horny beak opened a little. His yellow toe nails slipped a fraction in the dust.

[Penguin ed., pp. 15-16; Chapter 3]
"The cars of the migrant people crawled out of the side roads onto the great cross-country highway, and they took the migrant way to the West. … And because they were lonely and perplexed, because they had all come from a place of sadness and worry and defeat, and because they were all going to a mysterious new place … a strange thing happened: the twenty families became one family, the children were the children of all. The loss of home became one loss, and the golden time in the West was one dream."

A large drop of sun lingered on the horizon and then dripped over and was gone, and the sky was brilliant over the spot where it had gone, and a torn cloud, like a bloody rag, hung over the spot of it's going.
"They breathe profits; they eat the interest on money. If they don't get it, they die the way you die without air, without side-meat."
"The bank is something more than men, I tell you. It's the monster. Men made it, but they can't control it."
