i have watched the movie Giant several times but cant wait to read the book. I got the book and it wasn't any way as good as the movie. The book kept jumping from the past to the present to the future=. Just couldn't focus on the book at all.
this is an absolutely wonderful must-read. Edna Ferber's style is like no other. If you like this, make sure to read So Big - even better.
This is a classic and well worth the read. Nonetheless, the author seems to have a problem using commas and sometimes the prose is beyond endurance.
I rarely say this: the movie is better than the book, particularly the role of Jett brilliantly interpreted by James Dean.
Ferber sure paints an historic picture of Texas and it was only after reading the novel that I understood the virulant critiques tacked on at the end.
Fantastic Book with an interesting perspective of the Big Rich in the 20's and 30's
a very different writing style, but enjoyable
