    Paperback ¹ The Jungle PDF/EPUB æ jungle free, The Jungle PDFEPUBReading The Jungle will have you wringing your fists Upton Sinclair style Right up until I read it The Jungle was one of those books I'd always heard of but not heard about I knew it was important apparently because everyone said so but no one said why I guess I should have asked From what I gathered it had something to do with the meat industry and its nefarious doings in the early 20th century which led me to expect a dry straight forward tell all non fiction revealing corruption worker neglect health violations unsafe food preparation and other important but not very exciting topics That's probably why it took me about 20 years longer to get around to it than it should have Finally I read it I was right It did include all those topics but it was fiction and it was epic The Jungle is a story of immigrants coming to Amer

    Paperback ¹ The Jungle PDF/EPUB æ jungle free, The Jungle PDFEPUBwritten 6 03Wow Now I can see why this book had such a big impression on those who read it in the early twentieth century Really heart wrenching and gut wrenching stuff There's the famous uote that Sinclair said he aimed for the public's heart and hit it in the stomach instead I guess people didn't care much for the Socialism stuff but when they learned what exactly their sausage was made of they got madIt was surprising how much Sinclair reminds me of Ayn Rand especially considering their completely opposite views on capitalism They both use a fictional human situation to show the evils of society from an individual's point of view and The Jungle and Atlas Shrugged both ended with a lengthy philosophical statement that was thinly veiled as a speech by the characters I guess the difference is Rand didn't know when to uit and tried to actually make her utopia become a reality in the book Sinclair left it as a call to arms I
