It is not often for someone to come across great reads that actually changes the person's life. Reading Dostoyevsky's "The Idiot" and John Steinbeck's "East of Eden" had a profound influence on me. There was so much to learn from those stories since they were so complete in treating humanity. In fact, these are deep, insightful and inspirational books that one can not easily throw aside after one has finished. These major classics are books to ponder about, books for us to think and reflect over and over. If you haven't read this great piece of American literature, then I suggest that you do so.
I also recommend: Anna Karenina and Disciples of Fortune-these are two other classic works.

3 von 3 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von A Video Game Critic am 30. Mai 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
The book concerns two families living in the Salinas Valley in California: the Trasks and the Hamiltons. To a certain extent a family history, East of Eden is told from the point of view of John Steinbeck himself, a descendant of the Hamilton family who only makes a few brief appearances in the novel. The story is about Love and Loss, humans and monsters, brotherly camaraderie, survival, and the choice to make of life what "thou mayest."
The characters from East of Eden have the strength, vividity, and profundity of the archetypal characters of the Bible or The Odyssey. Samuel Hamilton, who gives of himself physically and mentally to no end but who winds up the poorest man in town; Lee, the intellectual Chinese-American philosopher who chooses to live his life as a pidgin-talking servant to a family that needs but underappreciates him; Kate, the obscene, self-described "monster" who is lacking a crucial aspect of humanity; Liza Hamilton, the practical, solemn, fiercely religious matriarch of the Hamilton family; Will Hamilton, the quintessential sellout--a businessman who simply does not understand his siblings; Cal Trask, the hardened, practical, apparent "bad" son who would give anything for the naivete or sensitivity of his brother.
These characters lend to the story a richness and a certain sense of reality--yet they truly transcend the story and exist outside of it. The characters are us and the people we know-- their stories are our stories. Read this novel and you will not only love it but also enjoy and savor it on your own personal level.

This book is a wonderful read. When I started reading it, I continued until 3.30 in the morning. The new books often come with endless praise on the cover. "East of Eden" doesn't - it's a classic, and I've wowed to read more classics. I loved the movie, the book is even better - much better.

I LOVED THIS BOOK! At first I thought it would be boring because it was for school and it is hugh. But once I started reading, I couldn't put it down. I'm only 15 and anything but a reader, but after this novel, I wanted to learn more about Steinbeck. This is a book for anyone from a romantic to a pervert. You won't regret getting this book.

Format: Taschenbuch
The initial response to East of Eden reminds me of the reviews of Tchaikovski's violin concerto which was excoriated at its debut as "an assault on the violin." It's clear that those who initially evaluated the novel clearly failed to appreciate the scope of Steinbeck's ambition and the extent to which he succeeded. I've read this novel 5 times now, each time more slowly. I always come away astonished at the depth of his understanding of the human condition, particularly his understanding that the feeling of being unloved has caused most of the misery in history.

East of Eden dissects to examine the frailties and strengths of the qualities that separate humans from other forms of life. The model centers the first human family, according to the Judeo-Christian religion, that of Adam and Eve and their sons Cain and Abel embodied by the Trasks.
In the first generation of the Trask family, brothers Adam and Charles reenact the rivalry between Abel and Cain. Charles easily becomes jealous and wrathful whilst Adam is emotionally tranquil and kind. Charles's animosity toward Adam, arising from Cyrus's preference of Adam, is expressed in violence. The bitterness of the Trask household is the result of emotional dysfunction. Ironically, it is Adam who does not love Cyrus. Charles does love their father, but Cyrus does not reciprocate Charles's affection. The first generation of the Trask family is a criticism of God in God's refusal of Cain's offering, which amounted in Cain's opinion as a withdrawal of God's love for him.
The Cain-Abel theme is explored once again in the second generation of the Trask family sons - Caleb and Aron. Caleb resembles Charles in appearance and behavior and Aron that of his father Adam. Caleb is aware of his evil nature and believes that it is inherited from his mother. Lee warns him, however, that he alone is responsible for his actions and that the potential for goodness or evil is the same. Steinbeck reinforces the freedom of humans to do both. After being punished by God, Cain receives a mark to protect him from danger and is told that he may defeat evil if he so chooses. In the theme of brother against brother, Steinbeck recreates the story of fall and redemption.
The marriage of Adam and Cathy delves into the Fall of Mankind.
