In Monterey, on the California coast, Sweet Thursday is what they call the day after Lousy Wednesday, which is one of those days that is just naturally bad. Returning to the scene of Cannery Row, the weedy lots and junk heaps and flophouses of Monterey, John Steinbeck once more brings to life the denizens of a netherworld of laughter and tears—from Fauna, new headmistress of the local brothel, to Hazel, a bum whose mother must have wanted a daughter.

    " The final book of Steinbeck's trilogy is worth anyone's time, and an especially fine summer read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Sara | 5/30/2011

    " This is a pleasure to read with very interesting and apt ways of expressing things that make it quite fun. Having read this encourages me to read more Steinbeck. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by William | 5/6/2011

    " Liked it, but Steinbeck's better when he's not trying to be funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Marilyn | 4/26/2011

    " I wish my teachers had required me to read Sweet Thursday AND Cannery Row while I was in high school. Both of these books deserve a place in American education--the character development, dialogue and settings are vintage 1930-1940's America. "
