East of Eden

Posted to What Are You Reading?

Steinbeck and Orwell are like oranges and coconuts, so I guess it depends on your mood, but... I would always advise East of Eden. There's so much to it, and it'll stay with you (in a positive way, I think) long after you read it. The extent of my Orwell reading is the standard 1984, but god does he ever depress me.
