Shows evil for what it is, as well as the influence evil has on people. Very sad, however....typical Steinback fatalism. A strong and powerful book, but not the type of book you want to read if you're reading to relax or enjoy yourself.

It's called a safe, use it
John Steinbeck really seemed to love to build up his character's hopes and then dash them. A simple diver finds a flawless pearl one day in a clam. In this beautiful pearl he can see his family's future. His son will have an education he will be able to provide a real home for his wife and son. But the only snag is that he has shown his amazing and rear find to the other people in his village. And of course greed and jealously will play into the tragedy that will unfold. Not the best move on his part...
I always got the feeling that John Steinbeck wasn't a very feel good person.

Despite it's place in the library of classic American literature, I can't in good conscience recommend Steinbeck's "Pearl". While the writing is as good as any Steinbeck tale, the themes in the "Pearl" are a little too black and white. Good and evil are clearly defined and their influence and consequences are unavoidable. I left this story feeling hopeless and distraught.
