The Pearl

The Pearl - John Steinbeck I really didn't like this book. I found it extreemly pretentious. I didn't understand the 'songs' that the author was talking about. Also I found it very predictable. it wasn't suspensful, nor did it have a twist to it. IT also for some reaason bothered me taht I couldn;t tell where the story took place or who the people were. They mentioned a few places/things that seemed to contradict each other.
