Of Mice And Men (Review #47)

Today’s book is Of Mice And Men:

Author: John Steinbeck

Publisher: Penguin Classics

Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars

Summary: Streetwise George and his big, childlike friend Lennie are drifters, searching for work in the fields and valleys of California. They have nothing except the clothes on their back, and a hope that one day they’ll find a place of their own and live the American dream. But dreams come at a price. Gentle giant Lennie doesn’t know his own strength, and when they find work at a ranch he gets into trouble with the boss’s daughter-in-law. Trouble so bad that even his protector George may not be able to save him…

Well, what to say? I read this book early before my English class started it, so that I would be able to identify foreshadowing and other issues throughout the book. Originally, I thoroughly hated the book, but now after re-reading it, I found that I understood more about the book and the symbolism throughout. So, it wasn’t exactly my sort of book, but I’m glad that I did get to read it, and one of my ‘resolutions’ is to read more classics, so this really helped…
