For My Online Book Club: Oct & Nov.

I love the simplicity of language and the simple, graceful plot. Everything's cut to the bone.

In school I got the idea that I didn't like Steinbeck, but I'm already planning on more.

My only complaint is that Cathy is so evil that she doesn't seem as real. Yes, I think some people are evil. I doubt they're actually born that way, but perhaps they are. I haven't decided for once and for all. Yet I've never run across anyone as bad as Cathy, though I have met calculating opportunists who seek every advantage.
