Of Mice and Men
by John Steinbeck
* * * Stars (Pretty good)
George and his best bud Lennie are migrant workers in California. Lennie isn’t always the brightest, however. Will they be able to reach their dream of owning a farm? Or will Lennie’s childish ways get in the way of that?
* * * * Stars (Great!)
Of Mice and Men is about two men going place to place looking for work. Unfortunate events cause them to look for ranches elsewhere. The setting takes place in the 1900s in California. I gave this book four stars because I think Steinbeck created and interesting story. However, I thought the book got boring at times as Steinbeck was very detailed about the setting. Most of all, I liked how OMM makes you think whether the choices made throughout the men’s journey was right or wrong. I would recommend this book.
