Don't give up! John Steinbeck is a wonderful writer, and he is very good to learn from.
He doesn't use too much slang (even when characters speak with an accent, he keeps odd
spellings to a minimum), and he doesn't really say things differently from a modern
American. If you wanted to take on something easier, I'd recommend Of Mice and
Men
, another one of his books.

If you get into American Lit., Steinbeck is one of the greatest in our history, and his
prose is very much in modern English style: clean and without eccentric vocabulary.
