The only worthwhile thing that I could do during the last vacation was reading books. It was from the internet that I came across the title “The Grapes of Wrath.” After reading it, I can’t only say that it is one among the few brilliant books I have ever read. Set in the time of the Great Depression, the story reveals an often unnoticed, forgotten face of the U.S. Also, it is one of those books that made me cry. I can see my grandmother in the place of Ma, my grandpa as Pa, and my little sister as the innocent Rose of Sharon. In a situaion like the one that is described in the story, they will do the same as the characters did. In fact, it is not the story of the 20th century U.S. only, but can be applicable to any place, especially during that time of economic crisis. I have seen people moving from place to place without being able to settle anywhere in our place. The ending of not many novels have made me cry. While reading it, I was actually into it. There is not even a single part that makes us to feel bored. It is a really amazing, engrossing, emotional work; one of those must read items.
