Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner

Thanks for the great response to my plea for help determining my next classic read. I’ll be starting East of Eden this weekend. I have a nicer copy at home, but I thought I’d share my library’s awful copy for giggles.


In case you’re curious. Here is the general voting breakdown:




  1. I was thinking the cover looked like a bad TV western, then saw looked again and saw that it was from a made for TV movie…gotta love the “cheese factor.” πŸ™‚ Hope you’ve had a good weekend!

  2. That is the cover of the copy i read back in the day! The TV film starred Jane Seymour as Cathy and i recall she was pretty darn scary in the later parts of the book/film. Pretty close to being truly evil! The 1981 TV film version doesnt even have a wiki page! it wasnt that bad but i havent seen it since and maybe it woudl be not so good in retrospect. Its a big book, good luck! I chose it because i didnt feel up to Grapes of Wrath, havent done much with Steinbeck since.
