Book review on grapes of wrath 2000-07-07 A Critical Review of John Steinbecks The Grapes of Wrath John Steinbeck wrote this book in the hopes that people would be able to see what was happening to our nations people He wanted to open their eyes to see the hardships that migrants faced everyday and he accomplished this through the telling of the Joads family story Starting with the day that their ex-convict son comes home on parole the lives of the Joads never really go back to normal After being evicted from their property by the bank the whole family packs up and goes the only way they canWest Their plight involves beginning a new life by casting away the methods of the past and being able to endure the misfortunes that life throws at them Of course their progress is hampered by an unreliable truck and by the quest for the dollar that all migrants had Through their journey to find work and settle down the Joads encounter many calamities that test their relationship as a family and their own limits as individuals As in real life not everyone succeeds with his or her goals and this story of hardship is no different In the beginning of the book we get an early look at Steinbecks ideals when Muley Graves saysif a fellas got somepin to eat an another fellas hungrywhy the first fella aint got no choice This is something that was very true back in the past and something that most people lived by Families could not see people starve to death when they had food to eat themselves Although they might be starting a new life the ideals dont change because that is what makes an individual unique Uncle John Joad said Go down an tell em Go down in the street an rot an tell em that way Steinbecks writing style as always is rich with colorful language
