Publisher's Summary

The Wayward Bus travelled the back roads through the lush California countryside. Its driver was a man of the land - lusty, hot blooded, and uninhibited. On the bus was a girl who danced at stag parties, a travelling salesman strictly out for fun, a boy coming into manhood, and a college girl pursuing her secret, passionate quest. This is a story of crisis and passion, of love and longing.

    Story
    "A Steinbeck Character Study"

    A well read story of a simple bus journey that has a few problems and a interesting mix of passengers. This isn't a epic story but kept me interested all the way through.

    Story
    "Good but not my favourite John Steinbeck"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was easy to listen to. The best thing about this book was the way Steinbeck describes the characters. I found it hard to sympathise with any of them but that maybe isn't the point.It was excellently narrated by Richard Poe and it wasn't too long.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I don't feel I could advise john Steinbeck on how to write. I had to remind myself that the book was written a long time ago and some of the attitudes have changed since then.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The first few chapters when the characters are introduced.

    Story
    "Intriguing!"

    Great book simple story well told and beautifully constructed.
    Colourful characters each with their own sub plot.
    I'd not heard of this title from Steinbeck but loved it.
