      I think I have a crush on John Steinbeck. But even if I met him somewhere -- a cocktail party, a barbeque, even my own bookstore -- I don't think I'd talk to him. Maybe make eye contact in a brave and silent way. Sometimes I get the feeling that he is friendly and easy-going, compassionate and kind, and really interested in people in general and persons in particular but I know that he is deeply brilliant, and I would say something ridiculous that I would turn over and over in my head (mentally [...]

      Steinbeck’s The Winter of Our Discontent was first published in 1961 and was his last novel.It was also the latest book published prior to his winning the 1962 Nobel Prize for literature. Interestingly, when asked if he felt that he deserved the award, this “giant of American letters” said: “Frankly, no.” Further, recent archives revealed that Steinbeck was a “compromise choice” for the award amidst a group described as “a bad lot”. Although the committee believed Steinbeck's b [...]

      Rating: 6* of fiveThe Publisher Says: Ethan Allen Hawley, the protagonist of Steinbeck’s last novel, works as a clerk in a grocery store that his family once owned. With Ethan no longer a member of Long Island’s aristocratic class, his wife is restless, and his teenage children are hungry for the tantalizing material comforts he cannot provide. Then one day, in a moment of moral crisis, Ethan decides to take a holiday from his own scrupulous standards.Set in Steinbeck’s contemporary 1960 A [...]

      I was forwarded a blog post recently (written by someone much sharper than me) that asked where our contemporary John Steinbecks have gone. The masterful fiction dedicated to the minimum wage worker, the family displaced by the Great Recession living out of a motel room, or anyone living from paycheck to paycheck seems largely extinct from the bestseller lists. Hard luck stories about average American families fill newspapers, while in fiction, it seems like world building, not world reporting, [...]

      The brilliance of John Steinbeck intimidates me. I spend a great deal of my time while reading his books nodding my head in agreement and gasping in awe at how he tackles the profound and the everyday with the same amount of elan.First off, I enjoyed this story. I cared about Ethan Allen Hawley, and not just his person but his soul. I wanted him to emerge unscathed even though I knew he could not, because no one can compromise his own morality and remain unsoiled. I cried for what I knew was his [...]

      When I started reading this, the last novel written by John Steinbeck, I initially thought that I wasn’t going to like it. The prose was as fine as I expected it to be, but it seemed such a small story, compared to powerful epics like The Grapes of Wrath and East of Eden. However, the story grew on me as I read and the ending packed a punch. Mostly in the form of a first person narrative, the novel is about Ethan Hawley, a likeable man in his late thirties, married to a woman he loves and the [...]

    7. William S. on said:

      There is a certain emotion in Steinbeck I have not found in other authors. Faulkner comes close, Hemingway a bit further off, perhaps Woolf is on a parallel path. Steinbeck shows us something into ourselves, he states in the book that we all have our own light, we are not a bonfire. We only understand others to the point that we assume they are akin to ourselves. Steinbeck, like Woolf in the Waves, shows us that we are all connected, and that we can find a path in this world through this novel. [...]

      Evanescence of MoralityMaybe it's my age where I find myself amidst a thousand questions because I like to think that I am understanding a little of what goes around. And as it goes with books, the count of unanswered questions is on an exponential run. Anyway, the most prominent and adamant question I find myself wrestle with these days is 'Morality'. The realms of it, the undefined criss cross intersecting patterns of it, the lawlessness and sometimes the hypocritical pride of it, and lastly t [...]

    9. Del on said:

      John Steinbeck's The Winter of our Discontent is a study of morality in the individual and in the community. Set in a New England town where everyone knows everyone else's business and history, Ethan Hawley narrates his experience with the various moral temptations one season offers him. Under pressure from associates and his own family, Ethan becomes increasingly dissatisfied with his diminished station in life and begins to consider a brief transformation, a temporary suspension of his identit [...]

      I learned a lesson about why I should finish books, even if the story does not grip me and I find the protagonist boring. (Thanks, book club) Initially, I thought oh man middle aged man making bitter jokes out of his miserable life. I felt sorry for his wife. However, as I realized what was happening as I got farther and farther into the book, I found myself wishing there was a sequel because I want to know what happened to Ethan a year or two down the road. Was he able to live with himself? Was [...]

      there was a time in my life when i read this each fall, as the the michigan winter was about to make my psyche turn to salt. i first read it by accident, finding it in my co-op on the floor in a room that had been abandonded and now was only used for smoking this and that. the walls of the room had been painted different superheroes from the previous tenant's childhood. i liked the rendition of green hornet, although the renderer claimed he was an after-thought, someone to fill the space between [...]

      East of Eden was 600 some-odd pages and I didn't want it to end. This didn't reach 300 and it could not end soon enough. There was just nothing good about this; I can’t believe this is a Steinbeck work. Moreover, not the work of a budding author still perfecting his craft, but an author who was in the winter of his profession, having already penned Of Mice and Men, Grapes of Wrath, East of Eden and countless other works. The story is about Ethan Hawley, a man of noble ancestry reduced to a gro [...]

      Bontà passivaChe bel libro, che piacere il pensiero che sarebbe stato lì, appena avessi avuto il tempo di dedicarmi a lui. Siete in quel periodo della vita in cui gli enta sfumano negli anta? Come va con il bilancio di ciò che è stato? Mi sono riconosciuto nell'inquietudine di Ethan Hawley, non mi era successo con quella di Bernardo Soares. " Ossia dico un uomo si batte contro le cose grosse. Ma quel che l'uccide è l'erosione; a furia di colpetti finisce al tappeto." A poco a poco s'impauri [...]

      I adore Steinbeck's writing. Simple lines which all readers can relate to. Philosophical content, but never laid on thick. It is difficult to convey the feeling Steinbeck creates with his words, so I give you a few lines instead:It sounds uncomfortable and silly sitting cross-legged in a niche like a blinking Buddha, but someway the stone fits me or I fit. Maybe I have been going there so long my behind as conformed to the stones. As for its being silly, I don't mind that. Sometimes it is great [...]

      It's a little difficult to put into words how this book made me feel. It's a short book so I thought I'd fly through it in a day or two. Instead, it took a couple of weeks to finish. It was not because I was overly busy or because my mind was drifting or that I was distracted byooh! shiny! It was mainly because Steinbeck put so many layers upon layers of depth and feeling into each of his superbly crafted sentences that I could have made baklava with them.I found this story extremely timely cons [...]

      You can read full review here.“You know how advice is – you only want it if it agrees with what you wanted to do anyways.”This book is beautiful, and that is some great writing right there. Steinbeck is what I would like to call a true literary genius. I haven’t read his other books and this is the first one, but already I’m his admirer. I think this is a finely crafted book.As I read this book, I came across many little but profound messages, throughout the book, and they were easy to [...]

      Início dos anos 60. Ethan Hawley vive numa pacata cidade costeira da East Coast. É um cidadão despreocupado, bem humorado, que troca impressões com os cães e gatos de rua e expõe os seus pensamentos aos picles e conservas da mercearia onde trabalha. Continuaria a ser um cidadão honesto e despreocupado, não fossem o descontentamento e ambição da mulher, a insatisfação permanente dos filhos , a convivência com o banqueiro da cidade e empregado deste . É a pressão da sociedade a exig [...]

      I feel like it's cliche to say that The Winter of Our Discontent is well-written. If you've taken ninth grade high-school English, I'm confident you've encountered John Steinbeck at least once. There's no doubt he's a fantastic writer. Of Mice of Men or East of Eden, anyone?However, The Winter of Our Discontent was not as fluid as Of Mice and Men nor did it possess the sheer strength in characterization or plot as East of Eden. It may be my underdeveloped adolescent mind at work here, but I foun [...]

      Just love all Steinbecks writing.He seems to have deeply studied human nature andportrays it in his incredible stories with remarkablecharacters in a very philosophical way.Good stuff!

    24. gillian on said:

      Why do I even bother reading another author? Always in the nick of time I pick up a Steinbeck novel and it is a relief to read carefully and beautifully constructed sentences again. And the dialogue! This story delivered all the things I love and need from Steinbeck. As usual, it had me scribbling its sentences in my journal so that I may remember them and repeat them as my own. But I never will. I do not have it in me to summon these perfect, wise, funny things to say when they would be most ef [...]

      2.5 StarsI consider myself a Steinbeck fan but I definitely did not like this one as much as his other work. I found this book to be a departure from his earlier work and it lacks the charm and endearing quality of his novels from the beginning of his career. I found this painfully boring although it did interesting things with the exploration of themes of America and its descending morality. I couldn't get into it and did not connect to the characters. I felt no sympathy to Ethan Hawley at all. [...]

    26. Jill on said:

      Reading John Steinbeck’s Grapes of Wrath and East of Eden were experiences I will never forget. Winter of our Discontent has the same beautiful writing, but it felt very dated to me. The portrayal of the yes-honey housewife was a bit maddening, and if the word silly was used one more time I may have given up. My frustration may have been partly because I listened to the audiobook. It was well done yet tends to give me a different experience than reading it myself. Still very good but not one o [...]

      Muhteşem bir eser daha. Çok akıcı, sağlam bir kurgu, felsefi yanı da var, hayatın içinden yanı da. Deneysel edebiyat, postmodern edebiyat, yeraltı edebiyatı, vd Hepsinin yeri farklı, her biri ayrı iddia ve tat sahibi. Adı ister gerçekçi edebiyat, ister klasik ister çağdaş edebiyat, isterse başka bir isimde edebiyat olsun, benim için J. Steinbeck, E. Hemingway, J. London ve Y. Kemal'in içinde olduğu edebiyat çok farklı bir yerde. Edebiyatın alfabesini bu yazarlarla öğr [...]

      Grande parte do espírito americano que tanto aprecio está aqui, como refere Steinbeck. Perfeitamente imbuído da sua sensibilidade para penetrar no coração da América dos americanos, de lá retirando tanto de bom como de mau. Neste Inverno, a pressão social sobre o "self-made man" recai sobre o genuíno Ethan Allen Hawley. Filho de burgueses, mas caixeiro de mercearia, Ethan é posto à prova pela comunidade mais ambiciosa da sua smalltown e a sua estatura moral conhece então o caminho da [...]

      4.5 starsMore than 5 years ago, I happened to come across 'Of mice and men' while searching for the shortest possible classic (don't judge me! :p) and happened to love it (read my review here). So it was just as well, I came across this book (which again I had never heard of before but knowing Steinbeck I thought it was worth the risk) during my monthly visit to the library.Imagine my delight when the book had me in its clutches from Page 1 and never let go. I would read till late night, read wh [...]
