    Upton Sinclair

    This book was assigned for a history class and I found it very useful in understanding more about 1920s society. I found the book to be a quick and easy read, but still chalked full of information. The book can be seen as a dystopian novel in which Jesus wakes up in the 1920s to an unorganized chaotic society. I recommend this book as it offers a different view of what was really happening during what was known as the ¿Progressive Era.¿ Although there was reform going on during the 1920s, there was also a lot of corruption going on and people were very celebrity driven with the rise of Hollywood and Sinclair highlights those issues.

    Good Book

    Upton Sinclair uses Jesus and all his basic moral values others to put in perspective the struggle between the working class and the elite. Sinclair shows how the Progressive Era, was not so progressive but rather oppressive of the working people. This book is another powerful tool of Sinclair's muckracking that shows the many problems cuased by big business and class distinctions. Overall i though the book was good, and did a great job of using a interesting story to make his point.

    A Great READ!!!!

    The book overall was interesting. Upton Sinclair brings Jesus back to earth in the 1920's. The book is interesting to read because it shows how Sinclair perceives people would react to Jesus coming to America in the 1920's. It brings a different light to the 1920's that often historians leave out.
