I am a Steinbeck fan and I always have been. In Cannery Row as always, Steinbeck's use of speech and expressions are just stunning.
John Steinbeck follows the diverse characters of the small town of Cannery Row. The characters are well thought out and varied. Hazel is one of my favorites in how she asks questions just to hear a person speak. This has always been one of my favorite read agains and probably always will be.
