Book Excerpt: 
. . .Section 20

It was fortunate that this was the day of Peter's meeting with McGivney. He could really not have kept this wonderful secret to himself over night. He made excuses to the girls, and dodged thru the chicken-yard as before, and made his way to the American House. As he walked, Peter's mind was working busily. He had really got his grip on the ladder of prosperity now; he must not fail to tighten it.

McGivney saw right away from Peter's face that something had happened. "Well?" he inquired.

"I've got it!" exclaimed Peter.

"Got what?"

"The name of the spy in the jail."

"Christ! You don't mean it!" cried the other.

Not in the category that The Jungle is, but still an interesting read. In the back of the book Sinclair lays out what is fiction and what is not in this telling of 'the haves' and 'the have-nots' or the merchants vs the working class. Many insights into our socio-economy of today.

ideas and themes become repetitive but an easy, entertaining read

A forgettable book.

From the perspective of a 21st century reader, this novel is an interesting observation of the political machines and big business influences that pervaded urban centers in the early 20th century. It is an enjoyable read to say the least.

Pretty good story, if a bit dated. But another good look into the life at the turn of the 20th century. Gosh life was hard then.

I found this book at a flee market, in a state as if it had been 100 years old. anyway it kept fascinating me, thought maybe it is actually more of a 3,5 than a 4, but the thing that keeps on my mind from this book is that you always expect something to happen, that... - better read it yourself!

Nationalism starts out innocently enough, but in the minds of the powerful or the ignorant, it becomes seriously dangerous. It isn't even about Socialism.

Not as good as the jungle, but a quick and easy read. I enjoyed it and it made me feel uneasy at the same time. Recommended socialist literature.

an enjoyable novel (I'm still no voting for Bernie)

Americans react to pre, post and during WW1. Of course a little far fetched, it's still an important novel by Upton Sinclair, a prolific story teller.
