This book is a must-read! It will hit you in the feels, and you will not be able to put it down!
There is nothing better than seeing that your favorite book is turning into a movie, until everything the film gets changed. It's the worst. I looked at some of our favorite book/movie adaptations and tried to figure out what went right and what went wrong.
This book is an unexpected adventure with so many twists and turns I really didn't expect! This Oz isn't the OZ that we know, this Oz is bleak, and the magic is being drained. By who? In this Oz, wicked is good and good is wicked, and everything is backward. The story takes us on a roller coaster of emotions while some characters die, some are freed, and others show their true self.
I think it may be one of the most beautiful books he ever wrote! Steinbeck's ability to make such a clear picture in your mind is seriously crazy good! You could see the fighting, the love in the eyes, the craziness of some of the people, and the hope of others. East of Eden discusses, suicide, war, love, hate, sibling rivalry, race, religion, and so much more! Written in 1951, John Steinbeck gives us a perspective of life during this time while also still being relevant today.
