Steinbeck's last great novel,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Winter of Our Discontent (Classic, 20th-Century, Penguin) (Taschenbuch)
This is Steinbeck's last great novel; but one of it's highlights is Steinbeck's ability to create characters that are real. You the reader can identify--not necessarily identify with--the characters and care about their actions and their feelings. The prose is clean and compact, like the best of Steinbeck's writing, and is real; he never turns it into an endless torid sea of "clever" wordplay. There is a story to be told, and he presents it beautifully. This book ranks up along with "Grapes of Wrath" and "Of Mice and Men." "Winter of Our Discontent" isn't as familiar as these and other works, but it should be.
