OTANO
Thomas Steinbeck's brilliance is evident in this novel which is IMPOSSIBLE to put down!! Having read every John Steinbeck novel, short story & play I have been able to obtain, I certainly plan on doing the same for his son, Thomas!! For those who have enjoyed John Steinbeck's works, I can assure you, this lives up to the Steinbeck name, which I can't believe I'm saying, because I have always felt that John is the greatest American novelist that I have read. I can not wait to start my next Thomas Steinbeck novel!!

When he speaks of landing at the Watsonville airport I smiled ear to ear. So fun to read a book from my area of the world and to read something of value. I find stories of the Chinese life in America to be very compelling. How they relied on each other and succeeded despite such fierce racism is wowing.

'Really disappointing, although I have not read anything previously by this author... I had heard an interview, given (obviously) prior to his death, and became interested in the subject matter covered in this book... but, the story takes off in the "middle" of his Dad's book about Cannery Row, so that was a let-down. That, followed by some really stomach-turning Sinophilia (maybe the author could be forgiven, since this was written some years ago, but now? Get real !). Also, the author repeats /creates some really sappy theories/old-wives' tales (?), such as , for example, that the Monterey Cypress trees were all planted by Chinese sailors... okay, it's a supposed fiction novel, but that's the sort of stuff you hear on "Ancient Aliens." The "new" characters created by the author are interesting, but the plot outcome? Not so much. Finally, the last part of the book basically takes the reader into the author's hopes for a screenplay, and those characters are just not credible, unless you like supermarket fiction.

I have all his books and have enjoyed every one of them.

Enjoyed this creative look at local Monterey history. It was a quick, enjoyable read.

This was very
good, not great, so four stars, not five.
Recommended to those who liked John Steinbeck's work and to those who like stories about America's history.

Although the concept of the story is a good one, I found the first third of the book very hard to read because his choice of language, which was intended to create another era, failed. Instead the voice of the man was unconvincing and irritating.

However, his descriptions of fishing at night and other scenes are truly lyrical. The majority of our book group did enjoy the book. A minority were disappointed.
In all my years of reading, this was the worst metaphor ever: "He was a yarn ball in the cat's paw of history." That was when I set this book aside and tried to forget about it.
