The masterpiece of Steinbeck’s later years, East of Eden is a sprawling epic in which Steinbeck created his most mesmerizing characters and explored his most enduring themes: the mystery of identity, the inexplicability of love, and the murderous consequences of love’s absence.

    I LOVE loved this narrator. The book is awesome and amazing… Steinbeck is a genius. But the narrator made it all that much better he was amazing.

    Really enjoyed this classic by John Steinbeck. His writing helps one connect with humanity, even if it's a part of humanity one is not familiar with

    One of the best ....maybe the best for me. The writing was crisp...for lack of a better word...and straight forward. The reading was seamless. Not what I expected. So much better. Explained to me why I like the cave so much. John Steinbeck is an explainer of life and the why of it.

    I enjoyed re-reading this classic. Exceptional writing with a fine narrator.

    Great Narrator! Thank you Mr. Poe

  • Andrew Hermanski

    Second time reading this book, but it's one of the most incredible books ever written. The narator does an awesome job and makes to book very entertaining to listen to.

  • Julee

    Absolutely loved this book. The narrator was fantastic. The book itself did have some long, narrative places, but if you can get through those, it will be well worth it. I started reading this book, but I ended up liking to listen to it much better.

  • Beau Bruhwiler

    Brilliant. The review feature of audiobooks.com requires 50 characters, while the word "brilliant" sums it all up. Brevity has its place when it comes to criticism.

  • Gwen Spain

    Narrators worked for me! Captured the essence of the story precisely! I had to quit cleaning

  • Suze

    Finally realized that the problem with this book is the narrator. He is very difficult to listen to over all of these hours to get through the unabridged version. Still worth a listen.

  • Charlene

    Absolutely enthralling!! Had always meant to read this book. Probably one of the best books I have ever "read". A real page turner (I know I was listening to it but you know what I mean). Richard Poe is incredible. I did not want to do anything except listen to this book! It is 25 hrs but worth every minute. The story is hopeful and touchng, tragic and sad. NOBODY writes like Steinbeck...
