John Steinbeck is just leaps and bounds above other authors: whether that be character development, plot, action, or just plain ability to tell a long cohesive story with several well developed sub-stories in between. A true masterpiece and I can't wait to read his other works, in hope that they live up to similar calibers.
It is the Old Testament story of Cain and Abel told twice, a California romance, and a reflection on the American take on the dichotomy of good and evil, how they are achieved and inherited. Thematically heavy, although it lags slightly in the middle, and is a little confused at first. Many strong passages which I could not help but continue reading. Fine writing by Steinbeck.
A classic story of 2 brothers. It was a little tough for me to et through but the overall message of the book is fantastic.
