    The title of this novel is only 50% accurate, a very poor effort Yes, it s about men, but there s little or nothing about mice in these pages Mice enthusiasts will come away disappointed This got me thinking about other novel titles You would have to say that such books as The Slap, The Help, The Great Gatsby, Gangsta Granny, Mrs Dalloway and Hamlet have very good titles because they are all about a slap, some help, a Gatsby who was really great, a no good granny, a woman who was married to The title of this novel is only 50% accurate, a very poor effort Yes, it s about men, but there s little or nothing about mice in these pages Mice enthusiasts will come away disappointed This got me thinking about other novel titles You would have to say that such books as The Slap, The Help, The Great Gat...

    Well, somehow I ve managed to read close to 800 books by now, and none of those had been Of Mice and Men That has been remedied now, and I m feeling emotionally drained by it So yeah.I suppose pretty much everyone knows the heartbreaking story of Lennie and George I was relatively unspoiled and still knew what happened in the end I just did not know how or why, but figured out those pretty quickly into the bookAnd still that did not help the sense of impending doom that was like one prot Well, somehow I ve managed to read close to 800 books by now, and none of those had been Of Mice and Men That has been remedied now, and I m feeling emotionally drained by it So yeah.I suppose pretty much everyone knows the heartbreaking story of Lennie and George I was relatively unspoiled and still knew what happened in the end I just did not know how or why, but figured out those pretty quickly into the bookAnd still that did not help the sense of impending doom that was like one protracted gut punch.

    It s the way Steinbeck describes things that gets me Crooks, the negro stable buck, had his bunk in the harness room a little shed that leaned off the wall of the barn On one side of the little room there was a square four paned window, and on the other, a narrow plank door leading into the barn Crooks bunk was a long box filled with straw, on which his blankets were flung On the wall by the window there were pegs on which hung broken harness in process of being mended strips of new leath It s the way Steinbeck describes things that gets me Crooks, the negro stable buck, had his bunk in the harness room a little shed that leaned off the wall of...
