After listening to “The Jungle” audiobook I can say that it might be my favorite 20th century work of all time. It was such a treat to read this book when I first listened to it and liked it even more the second time around. Through his writings I got the impression that Upton Sinclair was a man of hard character, one could even say wicked. Could be that he had a dislike for immigrants or was trying to make a social commentary showing that the American Dream wasn’t achievable by everyone. There’s a lot to unpack here but for some reason this book touched something in my soul and it’s one of the most powerful novels that I’ve come across.
