Editorial Review - Kirkus - Jane Doe

Steinbeck refuses to allow himself to be pigeonholed. This is as completely different from Tortilla Flat and In Dubious Battle as they are from each other. Only in his complete understanding of the proletarian mentality does he sustain a connecting link though this is assuredly not a "proletarian novel".

Review: Of Mice and Men

Editorial Review -

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.

They are an unlikely pair: George is "small and quick and dark of face"; Lennie, a man of tremendous size, has the mind of a young child. Yet they have formed a "family," clinging together in the face ... Read full review

I read this book in a couple of days last week and really loved it. I wanted to read some Steinbeck as he was a major US writer but didn't want to read too much as I already have way to may books ... Read full review
