Description

Drifters in search of work, George and his childlike friend Lennie, have nothing in the world except the clothes on their back - and 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 dashed as Lennie - struggling against extreme cruelty, misunderstanding and feelings of jealousy - becomes a victim of his own strength. Tackling universal themes of friendship and shared vision, and giving a voice to America's lonely and dispossessed, Of Mice and Men remains Steinbeck's most popular work, achieving success as a novel, Broadway play and three acclaimed films.

Our customer reviews

The writing was suburb, the characters: careful, the story: somewhat predictable but heart wrenching all the same. My friend told me this was her favourite book so I had fairly high expectations, I was not disappointed, despite not entirely liking the ending. And it's short, I read it in about 2 hours. Easy.
