About the book

image3.9/5.0

The compelling story of two outsiders striving to find their place in an unforgiving world. Drifters in search of work, George and his simple-minded friend Lennie have nothing in the world except each other and a dream -- a dream that one day they will have some land of their own. Eventually they find work on a ranch in California’s Salinas Valley, but their hopes are doomed as Lennie, struggling against extreme cruelty, misunderstanding and feelings of jealousy, becomes a victim of his own strength. Tackling universal themes such as the friendship of a shared vision, and giving voice to America’s lonely and dispossessed, Of Mice and Men has proved one of Steinbeck’s most popular works, achieving success as a novel, a Broadway play and three acclaimed films.

En utrolig sød og rørende novelle der er godt skrevet, og som vel dybest set handler om hvad et menneske er på godt og ondt. Man bliver meget følelsesmæssigt engageret og samtidig er historien rørende. En absolut klassiker og letlæselig.

Good book but found it fairly difficult to read for the portrayal of the disabled character and slave in the context of a school classroom of 14 year olds. Its such a serious topic that i think that age couldnt really appreciate. That said it is a very good piece of fiction, just not for me.
