1001 Books Discussion: Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck | The ... | oliviabuonocore | Scoop.it
Oh, how I loved this book. This 100-page novella took me about an hour to read, but an entire day to digest. Of Mice and Men has been analyzed and discussed to death in classrooms everywhere for the better part of a century now so I’m hesitant to get into an in-depth breakdown here… for fear of giving you all flashbacks to high school American Lit (unless you loved it like I did. Then by all means… flash back). Suffice it to say that this story takes a moody and atmospheric look at the hard side of life, the seeming impossibility of the ‘American Dream’ in the midst of the Great Depression and a raw and honest look at the darker side of true friendship and loyalty.
