As a student of history and the human condition (and a steak-lover), I found the beginning of the Jungle to be remarkably intriguing. The end of the book, however, I thought was contrived and boring. It is in the end that Sinclair removes any doubt that his aim is Socialist propaganda. His Socialist rationale is weak, but his indictment of those who abuse power and prey on the ignorant and underprivileged is thought provoking and powerful.

Why do you think the Jungle was written. Was it written to show the conditons that where going on the factory or to promote socialism?

This book makes me feel like I'm personally trapped down and never going to be able to make it it life, that nothing I can ever do will be enough. I can't believe how corrupt everything was and how anyone survived.
