There is so much heart in this novel that one can appreciate it without following all the Knights of the Round Table references. No Holy Grail quest here, though, except for friendship. The end is heart-wrenching.
I cannot believe this won anyone an award. If more readers wasted their time reading this rubbish, there wouldn't be a need for awards. A bum inherits two houses and his drunken associates make the Simpsons seem intelligent.
Our evening book discussion described Steinbeck’s novel as fun, whimsical, and a combination of humor plus emotion. While it was apparent by the number of stars given that, overall, people enjoyable the book, it did receive a few mixed reviews. A couple people said they were not into it and described it as not uplifting and surprisingly seemed the opposite. However, the majority who did enjoy the novel liked it because it was about friendships, humorous rogues, the simple life being the best life, “smiles of the hopeless man”, “ultimate anti-heroes” and Steinbeck’s mythology about Paisanos in California. The fact that there was a lot of wine consumed throughout the book was unanimous.
