East of Eden - John Steinbeck
Would recommend: maybe
- Interesting to read.
- I expected more from it. It's supposed to be a masterpiece, but it didn't feel like it.
- I'm a bit sick of family sagas by now; it somehow happened that I read only them recently.
- The villain, Cathy, is too simple. She's revealed to be pure evil right away. It's silly how she reveals all her secrets immediately when she drinks. But I guess it's the biblical devil or something.
- It's the story of Cain and Abel, repeated. I get it.
