    About John Steinbeck Alex Matson Kosti Antikainen


    1. John Steinbeck III was an American writer He wrote the Pulitzer Prize winning novel The Grapes of Wrath, published in 1939 and the novella Of Mice and Men, published in 1937 In all, he wrote twenty five books, including sixteen novels, six non fiction books and several collections of short stories In 1962 Steinbeck received the Nobel Prize for Literature.Steinbeck grew up in the Salinas Valley region of California, a culturally diverse place of rich migratory and immigrant history This upbringing imparted a regionalistic flavor to his writing, giving many of his works a distinct sense of place Steinbeck moved briefly to New York City, but soon returned home to California to begin his career as a writer Most of his earlier work dealt with subjects familiar to him from his formative years An exception was his first novel Cup of Gold which concerns the pirate Henry Morgan, whose adventures had captured Steinbeck s imagination as a child.In his subsequent novels, Steinbeck found a authentic voice by drawing upon direct memories of his life in California Later he used real historical conditions and events in the first half of 20th century America, which he had experienced first hand as a reporter Steinbeck often populated his stories with struggling characters his works examined the lives of the working class and migrant workers during the Dust Bowl and the Great Depression His later body of work reflected his wide range of interests, including marine biology, politics, religion, history, and mythology One of his last published works was Travels with Charley, a travelogue of a road trip he took in 1960 to rediscover America He died in 1968 in New York of a heart attack and his ashes are interred in Salinas.Seventeen of his works, including The Grapes of Wrath 1940 , Cannery Row 1945 , The Pearl 1947 , and East of Eden 1952 , went on to become Hollywood films, and Steinbeck also achieved success as a Hollywood writer, receiving an Academy Award nomination for Best Story in 1944 for Alfred Hitchcock s Lifeboat.

    1. steinbeck pulverizes me i m not the type to get choked up by calling card commercials or whose heart swells with the violins at the end of a sappy movie, but steinbeck has a heart seeking missile aimed directly at me, and he knows just how to find my emotional center this has always been my favorite of steinbeck s works, even though it is a shortish one in which very little actually happens but steinbeck s strength, for me, has always been his characters, and this is one prolonged character stud [...]

    2. i saw Dusty reading this and asked him what it was all about he said it was hard to say, it was about life and people and what a countertop looks like and what a place feels like and how people think or not think at least i imagine that s what he said, its been a month or so he also said that Steinbeck was his favorite author he finished reading the book and then gave it to me i would say that Dusty is my friend, sure, why not.The Wayward Bus is about a bunch of people in post WW 2 america it fe [...]

    3. The Wayward Bus was John Steinbeck s follow up to his Pulitzer Prize winner The Grapes of Wrath It most certainly suffered for it Published in 1947, readers had waited eight years for a new novel from Steinbeck, who set the Joads on the road to California in 1939 and wouldn t publish his next novel until 1952, when he dispatched Adam Trask west to meet his destiny in East of Eden Readers seem to have let The Wayward Bus fall into a crease on the map between the two novels, but I was absolutely e [...]

    4. My favorite present was when I was 15 or 16 A Christmas There were clothes and things But my brother wrapped two paperback books for me The Catcher in the Rye and The Grapes of Wrath Two days later I was an addict.I was also a completist Down went the other Salingers quickly And Steinbeck Well, he was God I had read maybe a dozen or of his books before Travels with Charley and I had my moment of doubt What kind of man owns a poodle And so there was a hiatus, if you can call forty years a hiatus [...]

    5. John Steinbeck is one of my favourite writers The Grapes of Wrath, Of Mice and Men, East of Eden masterpieces all Even his less important novels like Cannery Row and its sequel Sweet Thursday, as well as his nonfiction book, Travels with Charley, where he goes on an RV tour of America with his poodle Charley, are superb.He s written some stinkers too though The Red Pony and The Short Reign of Pippin IV are both tedious and Tortilla Flat is just ghastly Unfortunately The Wayward Bus is one of the [...]

    6. I should put this under poetry I should put all Steinbeck under poetry.One of the unfortunate victims of teaching and especially student teaching are the books we seek to read outside of scouring the curriculum day in and day out I started this sorry soul about two months ago, and even though my heart swelled each time I picked it up, I was lucky to get a page in between finishing lesson planning at night and passing out as soon as my head hit the pillow GAH And so, out of defiance of getting ah [...]

    7. It s fair to say that John Steinbeck did not write the same book twice, even if he re explored some of the same themes and used similar and often archetypal characters This novel was published in 1947 and was Steinbeck s second novel since the 1938 publication of The Grapes of Wrath The success of that novel made a rod for Steinbeck s back, as throughout of his life and beyond readers and critics compared everything he wrote to it Well, just to get it out of the way, this is not another Grapes o [...]

    8. Primo approccio con Steinbeck, romanzo corale ricchissimo di descrizioni minuziose personaggi perfettamente delineati, ambientazioni rese fino al pi piccolo dettaglio rendono il microcosmo della corriera una piacevole e divertente lettura.

    9. Brilliant Reading Steinbeck is like reading a perfect character study The talent here is that it s a character study of 10 different characters in a novel of only 260 pages And it s one of those rare occasions where an omniscient third person point of view coupled with an intrusive narrator in anything but annoying in fact, Steinbeck couldn t have possibly achieved this level of complex characterisation in so little space otherwise I came across a lot of reviews that say nothing much happens in [...]

    11. John Steinbeck had written the screenplay for Hitchcock s Lifeboat 1944 which was about a bunch of survivors thrown together in a boat after their ship is attacked during the second world war Three years later, Steinbeck published The Wayward Bus which had a similar story The Wayward Bus is about a bunch of people thrown together at a cafe and theirjourney together in a bus A businessman and his family which includes his repressed wife and a teenage daughter struggling with her sexual awakening [...]

    13. as steinbeck wrote the first synopsis of the wayward bus in spanish, he had originally chosen el cami n vacilador as the book s title he writes, the word vacilador, or the verb vacilar, is not translatable unfortunately, and it s a word we really need in english because to be vacilando means that you re aiming at some place, but you don t care much whether you get there we don t have such a word in english wayward has an overtone of illicitness or illegality, based of course on medieval lore whe [...]

    14. I don t care at all about what the bus represents It might shine as a dumpy emblem of the American journey to either the realization or implosion of our future plans But the story strikes me as the common American journey not necessarily from childhood to manhood, like the universal Buldingsroman, but rather the solitary transformation to self realization from what to who After all, what can these characters do with a Virgil like Juan Chicroy The prototypical guide never wavers, never falters, [...]

    15. Oct 2007 As always, a brilliant allegorist, incredibly keen on the simple and the complex, sometimes entirely perverse or wholly innocent, sometimes silly or sensible inner life of people, without ever resorting to the judgment of his characters As always, pretty landscapes, words I ve never seen before useful ones too , and a well drawn portrait of a little place in that little window of time during which the old West became new Unusual for Steinbeck an amused narrator, which I quite liked It o [...]

    16. Many people know Steinbeck for the obvious titles like Of Mice and Men and The Grapes of Wrath However it is in this story that I truly feel in love with this writer I was instantly drawn to each character, hoping that I could magically be transformed back in time to a broken down bus and it s traveling cargo I highly recommend this book, especially if you haven t read much Steinbeck This is the perfect book to get started with.

    17. Definitely not my favorite of his, but still amazing of course.

    18. I m rarely disappointed by Steinbeck s novels, and this, his next published work after Grapes of Wrath, was no exception.The narrative follows a bus journey through California taken over a single day by a group of passengers including a company director and his wife and daughter, a travelling salesman, a stripper, a cantankerous old man, as well as two employees of the bus driver, Juan Chicoy Having already been forced to spend the night in Chicoy s service station following mechanical issues wi [...]

    19. The Wayward Bus is about a dozen very different people who by coincidence end up on the same old bus It tells what happens to these people during 24 hours, how they interact with each other and most importantly, describes their personalities on a raw but clever way I know that might not sound like a recipe for a thought provoking, engaging and genius novel, but Steinbeck can turn a boring bus ride into an exiting event by closely picturing the minds and actions of typical Americans His knowledge [...]

    20. Another Steinbeck, another win I have come to the point of realisation that Steinbeck cannot write a bad book Everytime his pen touches paper, he makes words dance and conjures up a beautiful tale.This book is different from the others that I have read by him In this, the characters are colourful, the action intense with elements of suspense, and the story much character driven The entire story happens over a single day, and the author jumps jumps between the POVs of the various Dramatis pers [...]

    21. An enjoyable read, buta non ending Is that a spoiler Steinbeck s great descriptions and characters are here The characters are flawed but sympathetic, with the possible exception of one who is perhaps all good, but nothing really comes of that There s no real losers or winners, just a bunch of people that go through an experience together that alters them all, at least momentarily It is like tossing up a jar of marbles In the end, some fall back into the jar, some land somewhere else and some te [...]

    24. I loved this book Around midnight last night, I was torn between reading the last few chapters despite my 6 a.m alarm that was set or saving a treat for myself in the morning I ended up saving the book as a treat, but I had trouble falling asleep with the characters still dancing in my head.The book starts slowly and builds as the characters are fully drawn out The plot of the story is simple on the outside, but infinetely complex as you look inside each character I was glad that I had read the [...]

    25. Juan Chicoy and his wife, Alice, run a little lunchroom at Rebel Corners, where the sleek Greyhound bus stops Juan also drives a patched up old bus, nothing like a Greyhound, on a local, connecting route that the Greyhound riders need to continue their journeys WWII is over now, and people have places to go, things to see And they are not at all happy when the bus is delayed because of a mechanical problem and may be further delayed because of storms.The passengers are a cross section of humanit [...]

    26. The plot A bus ride gone awry Steinbeck is one of my favorite authors because he has both a deep understanding of the human mind, and the ability to recognize what makes a good story In this book he is less interested in the story itself, the bus ride, but the individual stories of the people that take part in it And not only that, he explores how this varied group of people tries to understand each other In many ways it can be considered a quite harsh read, because you can see how all the char [...]

    27. got this at the steinbeck museum in salinas, the museum gave me a renewed interest in steinbeck and his california and his way of recording the worlds of the people he met This book was than I expected in every way, racier, incredibly well set, with the charcters interacting in ways it would have been difficult to imagine on your own but understandably with steinbeck s hand at the tiller.
