The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck

The readers can download The Grapes of Wrath Audiobook for free via Audible Free Trial.


A heart-wrenching full-cast adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by John Steinbeck, starring Jeffrey Donovan and Shirley Knight. Set during the Great Depression, The Grapes of Wrath tells the powerful story of the Joad family's trek from the dust bowl of Oklahoma to the promise of a new life in California. But what they find threatens to rip apart their lives, and sever the ties that bind them together. Starring Shirley Knight as Ma Joad, Frank Galati's play finds its timeless heart in the generous spirit of the common man.



  • I gotta say, man, 'The Grapes of Wrath' was one hell of a book! It really opened my eyes to the struggles of the dust bowl and the massive wave of folks migrating to California. It's heartbreaking to see what those immigrants had to go through just to survive, but there's also a glimmer of hope that keeps you going. Gotta give props to the narrator, they did an amazing job bringing the story to life.
  • I just bought this audiobook today and have been listening to it for a few hours. The narrator's pace is a bit slower than what I'm used to, but he is perfect for this story and his voices are great. I've tried to read "The Grapes of Wrath" several times before, but could never get through it. The only downside to this audiobook is the abrupt harmonica music at the end of each chapter. It's so loud that it completely disrupts the mood created by the narrator. I had to quickly lower the volume and then raise it again to hear the narrator. I'm listening to it on my Kindle, so it might be better if I listen to it on my laptop where I can adjust the volume spikes. Overall, it's an excellent audiobook and definitely worth the one credit.
  • I had a fantastic journey with this story, but I was left slightly unsatisfied with the ending. I prefer stories that provide closure, and this one could have continued seamlessly without missing a beat. However, I understand that the conclusion may have caused some controversy, possibly resulting in the exclusion of this book from certain school curriculums. I don't recall studying this book in high school, but now I realize that its content may have been too provocative to be allowed. Nevertheless, the writing is exceptional, and I hope that modern-day high school students have the opportunity to experience it. Although it is set in the 1930s, it could easily be adapted to present times, as many of the themes and settings are still relevant. I'm glad that I finally made the time to listen to this Steinbeck masterpiece. It was well worth my time and credit.
