I read this book 47 years ago, and it was very good then and it was very read the second time.
I absolutely loved this unconventional travelogue by John Steinbeck as he travelled the U.S. in the fall of 1960, with his dog, a large poodle named Charley.
Steinbeck is of course one of the great American writers, but this book gives the reader insight into the personality of the author.
So much more than a travelogue. I loved his experiences, both good and bad. He has an opinion and you see it from his position. Read morePublished 3 days ago by Rachel S. Jerdin
You have to go back and read John Steinbeck to remember what a great writer he was.Published 10 days ago by Carole Zimmerman
Second time I've read it. Enjoyed it more and will wait a couple years and read it again.
A truly great classic.
...so that we could laugh together! Steinbeck is at his best here. His reflections are often funny but always spot-on. Read morePublished 17 days ago by liveinbooks
Really enjoyed reading "Travels with Charley". Many of Steinbeck's impression of America in the '60's are still relevant to modern America. Read morePublished 17 days ago by rideabout
