I don't like the novel anymore, because I read the novel two times and this was very time-killing.
The slang and speech in this novel were mysterious. Also, you can only understand the novel with a good knowledge of vocabulary, the only good positive thing in this novel was, that on every page is a small list of mysterious words - called vocabularies. I would also like to say that the story of two guys who travel around and work on ranches, is boring. On is a magnet for problems and the other one has to solve these problems. I think it's a normal reaction to think this negative way about this novel, if you talk more than 6 weeks about it at school. I wouldn't buy this novel if I hadn't to, or was a collector of John Steinbeck works.
