Tom Joad is the man

| | Comments (0)

I found chapter 28 of "The Grapes of Wrath" thrilling, especially on page 563 when one hears of how Ruthie reacts when someone grabs her box of Cracker Jacks. She spills about all that Tom has done and how is hiding now. This was stimulating for me because you can see how the characters throughout the book have transformed especially Tom Joad, who has become a man trying to take the future into his own hands. By the end of the chapter one can see how Tom calms his mother's fears about him dying in the workers' movement. The small amount of hope that he gives mother is the most influential thing he does throughout the whole work.
