I felt it was about time I read this book. I go to Monterey so many times and wander around Cannery Row, past the statue of Steinbeck. Figure if they make a statue of him, his books must be OK!

I enjoyed the read. It's a fairly simple book, with a nice story. It's about the lives of the people who live of cannery row in the 1940s, though the people he describes in the book probably wouldn't be to 50 years either way.

It has lots of fun tales in it and kind of makes you want to be a drop-out.
