'There Will Be Blood' is LOOSELY based on this book; that is to say there is oil drilling in each and there's a creepy charlatan for a religious leader, but that's about it. The first half of this book was excellent and gives a real explanation of how oil drilling worked at the turn of the century. The second half of the book is really about socialism, as the main character (the son of the 'oil man') struggles between the greedy wealth of his father and his belief in worker's rights. I found the second half of the book to be tiresome and to put it bluntly, boring and repetitive. I'd have to say I MADE myself finish it. The book could be considered timeless in the fact that it parallels modern society of the corrupt rich who control our political machine to cater to their needs, but it would have been much better served had they cut 100 pages out of the 2nd half of the book.
