Journal Entry 2 by jules5 at Darlington, County Durham United Kingdom on Thursday, December 6, 2018
Oddly disappointed with this book. From the introduction Steinbeck makes it clear this is not a critique nor did he want this novel to be a call to arms, it's simply a tell it like it is observational record of workers fighting for fair working conditions. It reads tho like a boy's own adventure..Jim goes straight into 'battle' with a language that doesn't sit right-its just so cliched...and it goes on and on, page after page of 'let's do this, but quietly does it we don't want to show our hand, but just drop in the conversation,any old conversation, that the workers are getting a rough deal' . If this is a masterpiece,I think I'll go back to Ragged Trousered and appreciate that a bit more-at least the dialogue was believable!
