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

I was expecting a book that would be hard to put down. Not the case. I couldn’t get attached to the characters. More time was spent describing little things and no time on major events. Maybe I’m missing something but no idea how this won awards.
