This is one of my absolute favorite books of all times! John Steinbeck does American literature proud. To know that he is counted among the American writers of literature, gives us all something to be proud of. This book beautifully depicts the human character - greed, desire, pride, passion. Steinbeck is one of the few who can beautifully and masterfully depict such aspects in his works as he proves constantly. i picked up this book because it was short and I only had 3 days to write a book report on it, but I was soon awestruck by it!Was this review helpful?

<p>Steinbeck has the Midas Touch and he proves it again in Cup of Gold. <p> I got into Steinbeck 3 summers ago when I read Sweet Thursday. I loved it and have since been reading all of his stuff and I have not been disappointed yet. I even loved Cody and Gabilan in the Red Pony.<p> Cup of Gold is taken from a time where the English Navy rose to prominance. The story of an Englishman who looses his patriotism and becomes a rouge on the high seas. All the while wishing that he would have stayed home with his one love Elizabeth. Simple but deep.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Old high scool reader
I read this book when I was in High Scool. I wasn't into reading too much and this one really stood out. I loved this book and liked it a lot better than The Pearl. It's was exciting and suspenseful to the very end. I just couldn't remember who wrote it- so I searched and found it here. That should speak for itself how much I liked it. Definetly different from his settings in California- but great.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
