GoodRead Review: The Red Pony

Was This Helpful? 
The Red Pony (Puffin Classics S.) The Red Pony by John Steinbeck

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Red Pony is not about a red pony. Its about a boy named Jody. The entire book, everything that happens, and everything that is said and done is said and done for Jody.

This book, much like John Steinbeck's The Pearl, is a book of discussion. Its an easy read - full of excellent writing. This book will dwell in your thoughts as you make sense of its meaning. It might even visit you in your dreams.

I relate this book to The Shack and Black Beauty because (A) it assaults your perception of life (The Shack) and (B) it forces you to acknowledge the cause and effect of your actions and words (Black Beauty).

Its a GoodRead. ;-)
