5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer Genius 9 Mar 2006
By Slaine
I was 'forced' to read this book as part of my GCSE's a good 15 years ago, and even thinking about this book still chokes me up a little. It is simply a fantastic story I cannot recommend it enough. In fact I'm only on this page today to buy a copy for my girlfriend who has never read it. She was forced to read Shakespeare and Chaucer as the poor girl went to a grammar school and so her education suffered.

4.0 out of 5 stars Of Mice and Men 2 Mar 2006
By A Customer
One of the best stories that I have read.You won't believe what happens in the end.This book talks about friendships and the difficulties that we overcome.Sacrifices are needed from us for the people that you love. It gives me an impression that these two guys called George and Lennie have a close relationship even though Lennie thinks like a 7 year old boy and George accepts him. They have a really close relationship and they both love each other so much and its all about their feelings and loyalty.This book is a book that has all kinds of feelings like sadness and happiness. There is also misery and loneliness.This book is so exciting. Buy a copy now "Of Mice and Men".
Have fun reading!

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling 7 Mar 2005
Of Mice and men is one of the most beautiful stories about friendship. The story is about two Americans. The thoughts and actions of the two southern are made open for the reader to enjoy and judge.

The favorite character in the book is Lenny. He came out in the story as and was innocent person with a mental defect. It reminded me somehow of Dostoyevsky's THE IDIOT. The amazing thing about this book is that not a lot of books are based on such unique characters. Another attractive aspect of Lenny is his physical strength and hardworking nature. Yet, despite his meek nature, he was dangerous in the sense that he even killed a woman out of fear.

Steinbeck successfully created a philosophical twist to life through this story by bringing to life strong but vulnerable characters that we all can relate to.Another story I recommend is DISCIPLES OF FORTUNE
