Grapes of Wrath has some good parts but not my favorite by him. East of Eden is great, and I like his short reads Travels with Charley and To Our Winters Discontent. I just think he has a cool still and how he weaves stuff that doesn't directly relate to the book.

Yes.

I liked it, and also thought it would make a great movie, assuming Tom Cruise is not in it.

I have a stack of other Follett hardcovers on the shelf, maybe I'll start one when I'm finished with the book I'm reading now.

The Pillars of the Earth by Follet was probably my favorite of his, mainly because of the time the story covers.

I think my favorite Steinbeck book is "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington."

Then they made it into a movie starring Henry Fonda.
