Reseña: 

   “Of Mice and Men” is a gripping novel about two friends who, having neither family nor a place of their own, search for employment in some ranch, after having lost their former job in a farm. 

   George promised Aunt Clara, Lennie’s only relative, to look after the mentally handicapped guy. Since her death, they both become inseparable, yet sometimes George loses his patience with his dumb friend.

 The author manages to impress the reader by showing not only a beautiful pure friendship between two grown-up men, but also the imaginative resources to which they appeal to escape from the long-suffering lives they have here and there.

  Yet, the story has an unexpected sorrowful ending which in no way diminishes the sympathy the reader feels towards these two modest men.

   Although the book is written in a simple style, those who are not fluent readers in English can find it a little bit difficult to get accustomed to the colloquial language, plenty of slang, Steinbeck employed to give realism to the dialogues among the characters. Nevertheless, the reading rapidly turns into a delightful experience, boosted by this odd language itself.

Valoración: 5/5
