    1. The title of this novel is only 50% accurate, a very poor effort Yes, it s about men, but there s little or nothing about mice in these pages Mice enthusiasts will come away disappointed This got me thinking about other novel titles You would have to say that such books as The Slap, The Help, The Great Gatsby, Gangsta Granny, Mrs Dalloway and Hamlet have very good titles because they are all about a slap, some help, a Gatsby who was really great, a no good granny, a woman who was married to a gu [...]


    2. I needed a quick read because I stupidly forgot that the library would be closed yesterday for Veteran s Day I d exhausted my current supply, and I needed a short term fix to hold me until I could get some new product today So I grabbed Of Mice and Men off the bookshelf last night.And I m glad I did because I d somehow remembered that this was a depressing book How wrong I was Oh, sure there were some tense moments like when you think Lennie will accidently hurt Curley s wife in the barn What a [...]


    3. Well, somehow I ve managed to read close to 800 books by now, and none of those had been Of Mice and Men That has been remedied now, and I m feeling emotionally drained by it So yeah.I suppose pretty much everyone knows the heartbreaking story of Lennie and George I was relatively unspoiled and still knew what happened in the end I just did not know how or why, but figured out those pretty quickly into the book And still that did not help the sense of impending doom that was like one protracted [...]


    4. Trouble with mice is you always kill em Breathtaking prose, touching characters and a heart breaking ending Who said only lengthy novel can make an impact


    5. I remember reading this at school at being completely uninterested in the story I remember the teacher droning on about basic plot allegories before we read each section she would tell us what certain things meant before we had even seen them She would explain how this portrays a vital part of American culture and a vital element of human nature All in all we were told what to see in the book before we even began reading Perhaps she should have just let us read it first, and see what we took fro [...]


    6. I think I ve been avoiding John Steinbeck, consciously or subconsciously, ever since I was a horse loving teenager and thought that The Red Pony would be a nice, pleasant book to read.I didn t read any Steinbeck books for years.But I was in the local library, puttering around in the general fiction shelves, and happened to pull this one out and noticed how short it was only 107 pages I had just finished reading Jonathan Livingston Seagull, which was a 127 page overdose of cheesy 70 s inspiration [...]


    7. It s the way Steinbeck describes things that gets me Crooks, the negro stable buck, had his bunk in the harness room a little shed that leaned off the wall of the barn On one side of the little room there was a square four paned window, and on the other, a narrow plank door leading into the barn Crooks bunk was a long box filled with straw, on which his blankets were flung On the wall by the window there were pegs on which hung broken harness in process of being mended strips of new leather and [...]


    8. Over the past year, I have rediscovered John Steinbeck as a master American story teller Having read Cannery Row and its follow up Sweet Thursday, I realized what a prolific author Steinbeck was and hope to continue my reading with a number of his novels this year One novella I did read while in school but have a fuzzy memory of is Of Mice and Men With a square on this year s classic bingo board being read a group read that you haven t read yet, I decided that it was as good a time as any to rev [...]


    9. What can I possibly add to a discussion of John Steinbeck s Of Mice and Men without drawing a high school English teacher s salary Considering I m not drawing bored glances from teenagers, I doubt that a check from LAUSD will appear in my mailbox anytime soon Published in 1937, this is the work that the algorithms seem to have agreed is the author s most renowned For Stephen King, it s The Shining, for El Leonard it s Get Shorty and for John Steinbeck it s Of Mice and Men This is a novella, app [...]


    10. This is a story about George Milton and Lennie Small, two migrant ranch workers, who move from place to place in California in search of new job opportunities during the Great Depression in the United States George Milton is intelligent but uneducated and Lennie Small is extremely physically strong but mentally disabled After being hired at a farm, the pair are confronted by the Boss s son who dislikes Lennie Another worker on the farm offers to help pay to buy a farm with George and Lennie Howe [...]

    12. Only a writer capable of assembling the symbolic with the folkloric can pen a novella that straddles genres, writing techniques and figurative voices and tug at the heartstrings of both commonplace audiences and the most exigent of readers Such indisputable universality is what Steinbeck accomplished with Of Mice and Men , a fabled novella with a linear plot delivered in a succession of theatrical scenes, compact on the surface and with simply drawn characters that might be accused of being exce [...]


    13. Of Mice and Men is the story of two men, George and Lennie, working toward their dream essentially to retire by acquiring a farm of their own The story brilliantly shows how easy it is to make dreams a reality, how obvious it is to have dreams and chase them.But Steinbeck slowly turns things into a nightmare by introducing Curley and his wife Just by getting in with the wrong crowd at the wrong time and having a few character flaws, Steinbeck shows how dreams are really made of nothing, held tog [...]


    14. I think it s tradition for me to finish a classic and think, That was good, but I wonder what insights and symbolism I missed out on since I didn t read this for class and have a professor telling me about it It s also just really hard to review classics in general, because whereas normal books I can pick apart the plot, characters, pace, etc there s something different about these I feel like I always expect classics to be deep and mindblowing with huge world shifting themes, but in reality, it [...]



    15. I had read this back in high school when it was mandated I vaguely remembered the story when I started reading it, many, many, many moons later and it is without a doubt a great classic tale.


    16. A small book with a big heart actually it was George and Lennie with the big hearts Two friends, migrant workers in California during the Depression, looking out for one another, trying to scrap by and save enough money for a place of their own Their big dream can t overcome their human frailty or the harsh and unforgiving time they lived in If not for the The Grapes of Wrath this would be Steinbeck s masterpiece.4.5 stars


    17. i hated this bookeinbeck is crapildren should not be forced to read it.ok, i really just don t like steinbeck s aesthetic i dislike the killing of innocent animals, the dehumanization of the mentally retarded and don t try to tell me that lenny isn t marginalized here the book is depressing and directionless, and not in the ironic waiting for godot sort of way the descriptions are flat, emotionless, and dessicatedever, curly s wife is awesome she s just so bizarre and pathetic, so out of place i [...]


    18. Reading other reviews of this brings home to me that I really was in the classes for kids they d given up on I never read Of Mice and Men as required reading assignment Tell us how it s gonna beI ve never wanted a book to spontaneously change endings so badly I yearn for that little place as much as they do I wanted them to have it desperately Proof the incredibly sad ending isn t hopeless is that on a reread I could still hope it would end differently Oh, it does happen, loneliness and cruelty [...]


    19. Book Review4 out of 5 stars to Of Mice and Men, a novel written in 1937 by John Steinbeck What a heartbreaking book many students in American high schools read this one around 9th or 10th grade, and it provokes such sensitive topics to be discussed A quick summary Lenny and George are drifters looking for work Lenny is a little slow and has a few disabilities that weren t addressed when he was younger, likely due to time time period early 20th century when they had ability to ignore these types [...]


    20. Oh God I want I need I m a giant ball of sheer emotion right now, as many people must ve been when they finished this story Dang it, John Steinbeck, how could you do this to us How could you write something so heart wrenching, and manage to leave us wanting Maybe I m just a glutton for punishmentbut I can t be the only one who s had such a visceral reaction to this story.Lennie and George George and Lennie Two lonely men who live on the fringe of society, desperately clinging to a far off dre [...]


    21. Guy don t need no sense to be a nice fella Seems to me sometimes it jus works the other way around Take a real smart guy and he ain t hardly ever a nice fella.Well, fuck I never knew a short book could drain me emotionally this much.Of Mice and Men is a book that I think everyone should read, at least once I read it yesterday, in one sitting, and I still can t stop thinking about it Without a doubt, this book became one of my favorite classics.Of Mice and Men is a story about two men, George and [...]

    23. I knowassic, movies, been around for years, greatly respected author, etc etc etc But, nihilism leaves me coldEnjoy if it s youbut and I ve used this quote before this book typifies life is hard and then you die Who cares how well the story is written that gets you there.The very quality of the writing here made the experience worse for me It has been brought to my attention of late that Steinbeck was a gifted writer It s true he was, and the message in the story he relates here carries that muc [...]


    24. O mi evima i ljudima je moj prvi susret sa Stajnbekom I evo opet moram sebi da zveknem jedan itala ki amar to sam toliko ekala Ovo je jedna dirljiva pri a o prijateljstvu izmedju dva mu karca u doba Velike depresije u Americi, ta nije u dolini Salinas Leni i D ord predstavljaju su tu suprotnost jedan drugome, jedan je krupan ovek u telu deteta, nesvestan posledica svojih postupaka, a drugi je sitan i snala ljiv, a opet nadopunjuju se i u neku ruku ine porodicu Oni su porodica jer brinu jedan o d [...]


    25. I have read this long ago, but am now rereading this in January 2017 How will I react this time I am so moved I don t know how to express adequately how much I loved this book You know everybody thinks, Oh Chrissie, she just appreciates non fiction Well that is not true, but I do set high standards Sure, non fiction you can count on for teaching, for providing knowledge you lacked before Because you can learn something it is seldom a waste of time, but rarely can a book of non fiction move you e [...]


    26. Guy don t need no sense to be a nice fella Seems to me sometimes it jus works the other way around Take a real smart guy and he ain t hardly ever a nice fella Of Mice And MenI really think I love John Steinbeck, which is surprising to me, because I never would have thought of myself as a Steinbeck reader There s just something about the way he writes that cuts through all the bullshit and pretense and just tells it like it is, and I find that really refreshing Sometimes they aren t easy, and som [...]


    27. Usually when my father and I actually have conversations, it tends to revolve around some sort of argument At times, even if I agree with him, I d pick up the opposite side of the given argument just for arguments sake When we agree we fall silent, and our relationship is based for the most part on silence the chance to argue is usually too good to pass up When I was younger I d end up in tears, frustrated that he couldn t look beyond his own view points in retrospect I suppose I could have said [...]


    28. I often think of this book when I see mentally ill people on the streets I must admit that I am jealous of John Steinbeckwhat I would not give to be able to write 1 4 as well as he could One of the books that made me fall in love with the classics.
