Review of 'East of Eden' on 'GoodReads'
This is one of the best books I've ever read. It really speaks to the human condition, about good and evil. I enjoyed the references to Genesis in the book. I have an interest in religious studies so it was wonderful to think, this is like X from Genesis, and then have the author drop an almost word-for-word quote in.
I think my favorite character out of all of them is Lee, and I was fascinated by the inclusion of Marcus Aurelius's Meditations as something Lee was highly interested in. It's actually on my short list for books to read this year.
I feel like this could be one of the few books I read more than once.
