Review: Of Mice and Men

Editorial Review - Bookreporter.com

When John Steinbeck accepted his Nobel Prize for Literature in 1962, he described the writer's obligation as "dredging up to the light our dark and dangerous dreams for the purpose of improvement." For some critics, that purpose has obscured Steinbeck's literary value.

I was assigned this book for school and I could only get through the second chapter before I had to ask my teacher to give me an alternate assignment. The problem was that there were WAY TOO MANY SWEAR WORDS!!! The Lord's name was also used in vain 50,000 times in two chapters! I'd never seen so many swear words in my life before! I was so glad I could read a differnt book. Later my friend told me the ending and it seemed to be the stupidest thing ever! DO NOT READ THIS! THIS IS THE WORST BOOK EVER!!!

This sad tale of two men that are put through so many hardships gives a tale of a relationship between two men that are inseparable. In the end it shows how people will do something out of love for each other so that the ones filled with hate can not do it first.

Excellent. Lennie's hallucinations at the end seemed a little strange and unnecessary, but that's a minor detail. Read full review

Review: Of Mice and Men/Cannery Row

User Review  - Tom - Goodreads

CANNERY ROW is a treat, a marvelously loose-knit batch of characters and incidents that never quite goes where you expect it to, and always manages to avoid sentimentality. I liked it a helluva lot. Read full review
