what do you like about the grapes of wrath specifically? (I also love it, but I suspect our reasons may be different)

I'm not sure. It just struck me as a very honest story with strong (but not over-the-top) emotions. I think I may also have sympathy for the characters because they remind me a bit of stories from my mother's childhood. She grew up in northern Alberta, on a farm, during the Depression.

We watched the film adaptation of The Grapes of Wrath in high school, but have not read the book.

When I was younger and had a lot of stress in my life, I couldn't make myself read anything sad or emotionally difficult. I just realized that that's no longer a problem. It's amazing how much more resilient I am when I'm not buried under mounds of stress! I may have to update my reading list. :)
