The hero of the novel gurgis was like any young man who had decided to immigrate to America at that time full of hopes and dreams for a better life; a young man who was honest and willing to work and who was only looking. What he found and what became of him suffice it to say was not what he sought. Upton Sinclair wrote The using jungle in the hope of turning the country from capitalism to socialism, believing as many did at that time that capitalism was evil and that socialism was the answer. Little did he realize that he was a misguided in his thinking as the most avaricious capitalist he might portray in his novel, that the problem was not the ism but rather what evil lurks in the hearts of men and only when men change. Nevertheless, The jungle stands as one of the true classics of American literature; a book that was written from the heart, accurately portrayed its subject and made you connect with the hearts and souls of his books characters. It is a monumental work that anyone who calls themselves an educated man or woman should read. I hope you will take the time to do so; you will be a better person for.-submitted by michael Samsara.

I remember reading this book as a summer assignment when I was in elementary school some 40 years ago. It was so informative and lifelike since i lived in Chicago and was very familiar with the Stockyards of Chicago. Children need to read more books of this nature so they can realize what history our cities have.-submitted by here. The jungle by Upton Sinclair was one of the most important books i ever read while growing up as a young man. I happened upon it at that point in time when my individuality was beginning to manifest itself as well as my awareness that there are responsibilities attendant upon each of us as men and women who have been given the gift of life. Sinclair is the type of man that I would have loved had I been there with him at the time he lived. Here was a man who had the intelligence to see the human condition not from just the standpoint of a his own selfish ego which certainly was the norm of the day but from the overall perspective of how his actions impacted and affected all. Thus, the horror, the degradation and the despicable wanton manifestations of human depravity he found operating at all levels and permeating the Chicago stockyards and the cesspool of evil it was in terms of the unrestrained abuse and use of other humans for the profit.
