Reviews of The Long Valley

John Steinbeck is simply a great writer and the long valley stands alongside his Grape of Wrath very comfortably. He writes with enormous skill of place and atmosphere. Added to which he write touchingly about the way people sound, what is important to them and whether they are moral, immoral or amoral, all without judgement. But he great skill is his use of language and just how much one needs to understand what he is saying. Just dip into the Long Valley short stories and in particular my all time favourite piece of writing "The Breakfast" I perosnally don't think writing by any author comes much better than this..
