I am a bit shocked that someone would accuse Grapes of Wrath of being pointless.  Wow.

Alexander, if you find the book pointless, how can you really understand what it was protraying? My grandparents have countless stories of life during the dust bowl and what you read about the Joads is exacty what life was like during that time.  I want to hear more- why do you find the book pointless?
