East of Eden readalong p 161-240

As you may have guessed from the fact that I'm posting this a day late (whoops), I fell a little behind on my pages this week. But I'm all caught up now!

How's everyone else doing? Thoughts/feelings/progress?

I find this book very easy and steady to read, and engrossing. I'm definitely enjoying it, although I'm not sure I love it. In many cases I find myself reading the characters as more symbolism than real people. What do you guys think? How allegorical is the book for you, and how much is it a story? Just curious.

I never gave the book much thought, even though it's so popular. I plan on watching the movie soon though. James Dean = I heart :)
