Of Mice and Men

Summary: A book review of John Steinbeck's novel Of Mice and Men, a suspenseful story with a shocking ending.
Of Mice And Men

By: John Steinbeck

Of Mice And Men is about the two peoples stay at a vegetable field in California in the early nineteen hundreds. These two men are George and Lennie. George is a smart small man with honest judgment, and Lennie is a huge mentally challenged man with a passion for following orders and working. These two men have been traveling together ever since they were old enough to work on their own. These two men aren't just any field workers they have a dream. They have a dream of saving up enough money so that they can buy their own piece of land and live off the land. Lennie is obsessed with petting things and wants to have rabbits at their house so George agrees. On every page in the book there is a hint towards the reality that everyone is lonely even George and Lennie. There are many symbols in this book and one of them is Lennie's love for rabbits. Lennie's love for rabbits is a symbol for peace. Curley's wife is also a symbol of bad things to come. This book is among one of the best and most suspenseful stories I have ever read. I could not have guessed the ending if I had one million years to. The shocking ending left me with my mouth open as I read the final lines of the book. I think the author John Steinbeck should have won an award for the best use of irony and the most for a most suspenseful story.
