Most Engaging Chapter

The chapter that I thought was the most engaging was chapter 10. This is because this is the chapter where the Joads get very anxious and excited to leave for California. In fact, they get so excited that they decide to get everything packed up and ready to go that very night. It is also a pretty important chapter because it shows how Grandpa is attached to the land. When he gets up in the morning, he does not want to leave with the rest of the family. He wants to stay with his land. The theme of this chapter is definitely people being attached to their land.
"Grampa's eyes had dulled, and there was none of the old meanness in them.'Ain't nothin' the matter with me,' he said. 'I just ain't a-goin'."


  1. I agree that chapter ten showed how the older generations were very much attached to the land. While reading this chapter it made me sad to think that during this harsh time these older people had to uproot and move on from what they have known their entire life in order to stay alive. When the only thing keeping them alive was the land they were leaving. Just like we saw later on in the book with Grampa.

  2. I agree with you. He also could of wanted to stay because he had a bad feeling about it from the start.
