Great American Novels, Ranked from "Pretty Great, Actually" to "Meh"


The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck

You may be asking how I am ranking these, and the answer is that I have a very complicated algorithm that essentially boils down to “not enough Dust Bowl metaphors” and “I just didn’t care for it.” This book falls into the latter category, obviously, because if there is one thing this book had for days, it was Dust Bowl metaphors.

About the Author

In real life, she goes by the name Courtney Gorter. This is a closely guarded secret, and you're the only one who knows about it, so be cool. You can follow her on Twitter or check out her website if you want, but it's just going to be a lot of complaining.
