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."

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!!!
