Vredens druer er en moderne folkevandringssaga fra 30'erne om Oklahomas forgældede bønder, der drives fra deres jord og af reklamen lokkes til Californien, hvor de udnyttes skamløst og ender arbejdsløse og hjemløse på landevejen. Romanens storhed skyldes Steinbecks ægte indignation og medleven i de fattige bønders skæbne og hans tro på menneskets værdighed og vilje til overlevelse ved fælles hjælp selv under de vanskeligste vilkår.

    " I was so glad that I read this in a class, with some guidance. It was challenging for me, and I don't think I would have finished it on my own (in high school). "

    " Loved this book. Hard to read at times, due to the painful descriptions of life in those times. "

    " I didn't enjoy this book, read it for High School english.

    " Well written but too sad. I don't like sad things. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tim | 5/16/2011

    " What a stunningly great book. It's long, but never a slog. You can practically taste the dust in Oklahoma, you can feel the characters' hunger and despair. Sadly, this book seems all too reflective of our current state, or at least where we may be headed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kaili | 5/12/2011

    " It was a REALLY well written book but it moved it a VERY slow pace. There was a lot of great symbolism and writing techniques but the book was a little too slow for my taste. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve | 5/12/2011

    " This book perfectly displays what is wrong with democracy, capitalism, and how we treat our fellow Americans. "

    " During the depression, a poor family leaves their home in Oklahoma, hoping to find jobs as grape pickers in California. Although they find work in California, the conditions are barely tolerable. "

About the Author
Author John Steinbeck

John Steinbeck (1902–1968) remains one of the quintessential writers of American literature. Born in Salinas, California, Steinbeck attended Stanford University before working at a series of mostly blue-collar jobs and embarking on his literary career. Profoundly committed to social progress, he used his writing to raise issues of labor exploitation and the plight of the common man, penning some of the greatest American novels of the twentieth century and winning such prestigious awards as the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. He received the Nobel Prize in 1962, “for his realistic and imaginative writings, combining as they do sympathetic humor and keen social perception.” He wrote more than twenty-five novels during his lifetime.
