Explications
aulsmith : Hugo was paid by the word and this work meanders shamelessly whenever he needed extra money. The digressions are interesting, but I kept losing track of the plot and gave up.

Explications
aulsmith : The Complete Works are NOT a good read. Some of the plays are. A lot of the poetry is. The plays are often better performed, so listen to an audio or watch a DVD.

aulsmith : White girl helps the poor Negros to tell there story ... written in the 21st century. You can waste your time with better tripe.

Explications
aulsmith : A good read? Not really. There's lots of fine writing coupled with Steinbeck's usual misogyny and a group of very dark characters. I still think most of Steinbeck is worth plowing through, but this one isn't for sitting and enjoying.
