    A Journey into Steinbeck's California af Susan Shillinglaw (Waldstein)
    Waldstein: Fascinating coffee table book, lavishly illustrated with photos and maps, well-written too. Sort of Steinbeck's "Californian" biography, though it also covers his living in New York and travels to Mexico. Plenty of interesting real-life background of "East of Eden" and many of his other works. Compelling insight into Steinbeck's personality.… (mere)

An incredible story. Samuel Hamilton, Cathy Ames, and Caleb Trask might be three of my favorite and most interesting characters I've ever read about. The biblical motifs were extremely well done, and had a profound effect on me, even being as non-religious as I am. The philosophical questions this book brought up were amazing and it dealt with deep topics in a very interesting and digestible way. Topics such as what it means to be human and innate evil vs good, free will, and original sin as presented in The Book of Genesis with the story of Cain and Abel. ( )

I'd like to believe in a version where Lee and Sam Hamilton elope and wander the world. ( )

Entre la guerra de secesión y la primera guerra mundial, dos familias viven a lo largo de tres generaciones en el lejano valle de Salinas. Tras acompañar a la familia Hamilton en su épico asentamiento en California, el lector penetra en el sofocante mundo de los Trask, en el que Adam, un hombre de costumbres estrictas y severas, intenta educar en el recto camino a sus hijos Aron y Cal, tras ser abandonado por su mujer, a quien nadie en la familia se atreve a nombrar. Aron es trabajador, obediente y cumplidor. Cal, inquieto y siempre insatisfecho, no soporta el peso del silencio en torno a su madre, cuyo carácter indomable cree él —y secretamente también Adam— que ha heredado; así pues, ya es inevitable la lucha soterrada por el reconocimiento del padre, cuyo rechazo hacia Cal conduce a éste a la más provocadora rebeldía. Un día, Cal se siente extrañamente atraído por la misteriosa Cathy Adams, que regenta el burdel más célebre de la región. A partir de ese instante, la maldición caerá sobre Cal, condenado irremisiblemente a permanecer al este de un elusivo Edén...

This is an excellent book that suffers from what I call 100-Years-of-Solitude syndrome. It spans three generations of the same characters, and the allegories reiterate themselves from generation to generation. It's a good read, but any one of the generations would have been a fine book on its own, and in aggregate they don't do much more than hammer home the same blunt Biblical allusions. Is it neat that the three generations echo and rhyme? Absolutely! But it's a hard thing to keep up steam for over the long haul.

Anyway, that's the bad. The good is the book itself. There are lots of fascinating characters, each of whom exemplifies some aspect of human psychology. Reading through East of Eden feels a lot like casting acquaintances from your life into book form; there are lots of characters, and with the exception of Aron, each of them rings true. My girlfriend suggests that we can learn more about the human condition from fiction than we can from psychology, and books like these make me thing she might be onto something there.

Is this the best book I've ever read? No, but I'm happy I made it through. It could have used an aggressive editor, but the scale of the world, the characters, and the recurrent themes make it a breath of fresh air compared to most modern literature. I doubt this book will stick with me, but I can see why it's considered a classic. ( )

Dear Pat,

You came upon me carving some kind of little figure out of wood and you said, "Why don't you make something for me?" I asked you what you wanted, and you said, "A box." "What for?" "To put things in." "What things?" "Whatever you have," you said. Well, here's your box. Nearly everything I have is in it, and it is not full. Pain and excitement are in it, and feeling good or bad and evil thoughts and good thoughts--the pleasure of design and some despair and the indescribable joy of creation.

And on top of these are all the graditude and love I have for you. And still the box is not full.

JOHN

You must not forget that a monster is only a variation, and that to a monster the norm is monstrous.
I don't very much believe in blood. I think when a man finds good or bad in his children he is seeing only what he planted in them after they cleared the womb. - Samuel Hamilton
And this I believe: that the free, exploring mind of the individual human is the most valuable thing in the world. And this I would fight for: the freedom of the mind to take any direction it wishes, undirected. And this I must fight against: any idea, religion, or government which limits or destroys the individual.
