Embarrassed to admit I really liked this...sigh.
Saw the film in school, read the book a couple of years later. It's a good read, in the way that you feel like it touched something inside you. Besides that, I can't really put my finger on what I liked about the book. Not the best of things, I guess, having seen the film first. Still, the everpresent simple and elegant prose of Steinbeck is a joy, and it really shines through in his shorter stories, like this one. Part of any "general education", I guess.
