Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck - review | Children's books | The Guardian

I had heard a lot about this book and also own it. It is there somewhere. I cannot seem to find it though. I thought I would eventually read it and I did not tell I borrowed a copy from the library and finished it in a single sitting. If you do decide not to read it in a single sitting, take it from me, this book will haunt you. It will not let you be till you have completed it. Now to the plot.

John Steinbeck's "Of Mice and Men" is a touching tale of the friendship between two men set against the backdrop of the United States during the Depression of the s. Subtle in its characterization, the book addresses the real hopes and dreams of working-class America. Steinbeck's short novel raises the lives of the poor and dispossessed to a higher, symbolic level. Its powerful ending is climactic and shocking to the extreme. But, we also come to an understanding of the tragedy of life.

Steinbeck not only depicts the hard-scrabble existences of itinerant ranch hands, but also spotlights the flora and fauna once abundant in the area. S tresses the importance of social connection during times of trouble.

Of Mice and Men is a well-known classic, and with valid reason. The book may seem rather boring as many books about the Great Depression may seem but it is actually a great tribute to literature. The book is about a man called George and his childlike, kind-hearted friend Lennie. They find work in a ranch after being on the run from their old job because Lennie got them in deep trouble, and it seems that in this book he may get in trouble again as George may have not been able to help him. The book is great because, not only the great use of description, but the characters because Steinbeck shows how children are, in some cases, better people than adults in the way that they do not judge people because they do not see people or things from that point of view an example being childlike Lennie who has a mental disability though they didn't know that at the time the book is based. The great thing about that is that it shows some of the other characters' feelings about the situations they are being put in and shows how Steinbeck feels about racism and sexism. Yet another good thing about this book is that it is not long and does not drag on like other great books as The Great Gatsby and To Kill A Mockingbird which is great for readers who do not like to read long books and get bored when reading long books.

  1. Instead, they are delicately woven through the plotline, so much so that you will only realize halfway through the book that the story which you at first thought to be simple is as complex as the characters in it.
