East of Eden - post VI

A terrible day on the reading front because I couldn’t find the book for many hours and so the page count is very low but it is still worth posting because the side story, that of the Hamilton’s as told by the grandson of Samuel, who is the narrator, develops

Bullet points between pages 312 – 346

* Samuel visits Adam and beats him out of his trance and they name the boys Caleb and Aaron and Adam seems to be starting to think of life beyond Cathy

* The story then shifts to focusing on Tom, as told through the eyes of his nephew, who loves his visits and recalls the times they went fishing together but Tom seems to be unsatisfied despite his talent

More tomorrow…
