Terrible book

What an awful piece of literature! The whole story is greed , terribly written, awful from start to finish.

Th Pearl

This is a really good book for ages 11+ because it has a really good conflict about the pearl. Like his father and grandfather before him, Kino is a diver, gathering pearls from the gulf beds that once brought great wealth to the kings of Spain and now provide Kino, Juana, and their infant son. Then, on a day like any other, Kino emerges from the sea with a pearl as large as a sea gull’s egg. With the pearl comes hope, the promise of comfort and of security. The Pearl explores the secrets of man’s nature, greed, the darkest depths of evil, and the possibilities of love.

Not as good as Of Mice And Men, but still a great Steinbeck book!

This book has actually appealed to me! It has a nice setting, story, characters, and an easy way to read! The family try to survive when thieves try to take their precious pearl. Will they find a way off their island? Find out and read it!
