Book 26 - The Jungle

So I downloaded a few free books to my IPad.  One of them being The Jungle by Upton Sinclair.  I have to admit that I know I read part of this back in like 10th grade so it wasn't entirely new. Surprisingly though I remembered very little.  The first like 2/3 of the book I found much much more interesting then the last part which was a giant case for socialism - that part just kind of lost my interest.  I actually skipped over whole pages of the socialist rambling it was too much for me.  The whole book itself is for socialism but the beginning about the meat packing industry and being an immigrant was much more interesting to me.  I also feel like the story just died off in the last part.  Anyhow I am 1/2 way to my 52 goal now and I love that.

Personally I thought it was a boring book too and never tried to read it as an adult, only as a 16 year old which I was in 11th grade.
