We’re coming down the home stretch of The Pearl.
Last question: Was it a satisfying read? Why or why not?
Steinbeck is always satisfying! Thanks, Kyle, for the encouragement to read this. I would probably get through a lot more books if they were all novella length. Why satisfying? For me, the story really came alive when he introduced the trackers. It became much more visceral and tense. Just imagining them out in the desert being hunted like wild animals and not knowing exactly what would unfold.
