East of Eden (Kristi's book #4 )

I've just finished reading East of Eden by John Steinbeck (winner of the 1962 Nobel Prize in Literature). I've enjoyed every Steinbeck book I've ever read and this one was no exception. It's a long, complicated book that follows the lives of two families (one of which was Stienbeck's maternal ancestors) over three generations. Ultimately, the book is about the good and evil that reside in each of us—and the balance between the two. As is always the case with Steinbeck’s novels, my favorite part was the author’s masterful use of language. You can find my complete review on my blog.
