Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck was a very quick and read and I certainly can see why it’s a classic. The book is about two migrant workers, George and Lenny. Lenny is by todays standards a special needs adult. We know that George and Lenny have been friends since their youth and George took it upon himself to be Lenny’s guardian even though Lenny gets into trouble a lot. Lenny is a gentle giant who is worth more than his keep.
The ending was a little sad but, a great book and glimpse into the past of a different time and someone out trying to achieve the American dream.
