Of mice and men, 3 Feb 2004
I would have to disagree with some of the previous reviewers remarks on this book. I too am a GCSE student and have read it at school. I found the story very interesting , at the beggining steinbeck uses some beautiful descriptive words to describe a valley with a river flowing through it. We are eventually given some background info on the main characters which is welcomed but perhaps maybe would of have been better right at the begining of the book. I found the GCSE questions in between the chapters very helpful for revising your knowledge on the text , but if you were just reading the book for fun then i could see how this would be annoying. The book is on the short side (but hey it's quality not quantity isnt it). So to sum it up then , it's a great book if you are doing it for exams but maybe not for the normal reader.
