Of Mice and Men

Of-mice-and-men-book-cover“Of Mice and Men” by John Steinbeck
Fiction – 4 stars

Something I should have read in high school, but never did. While I am glad I read it now, I am totally unsure of how to unpack the ending. Why did George think that he only had one choice? Not my favorite Steinbeck, but a good one.

 

And another 4 star review…

** spoiler alert ** I know I should have read this book ages ago, but better late than never. I can see why it is considered a classic, but not my favorite Steinbeck. I struggle to see why George seemingly only saw one way out of the trouble that Lenny had gotten into. I very much wish I had my high school English teacher to unpack this ending for me and ask all those wonderful leading questions. Regardless, it was beautifully crafted story with rich characters.
