The Pearl by John Steinbeck

Wow a very short but very sobering read. A brief window on to Hell on earth.

Pearl fisherman in abject poverty finds the pearl of the world. Jealousy, greed and horror ensue.

Very simply written with very simple but non the less real characters - worth a couple of hours of anybody's time. 3.5 out of 5
