East of Eden
- Written by: John Steinbeck
- Narrated by: Richard Poe
- Length: 25 hrs and 23 mins
This sprawling and often brutal novel, set in the rich farmlands of California's Salinas Valley, follows the intertwined destinies of two families - the Trasks and the Hamiltons - whose generations helplessly reenact the fall of Adam and Eve and the poisonous rivalry of Cain and Abel.
Worthy of its reputation

Interesting and a great illustration
The book itself is filled with imagery of good and evil. Richard Poe did a great narration that I held on to for 25hrs. Only con is that a lot of effort was put into the story line of Kate and Charles and they didn’t have a good ending.
