Of Mice And Men Review


Hey guys! So for English class I had to read Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, so here's my review for it.

Review:
I really didn't enjoy this story. I found it boring in the beginning and the rest of the way through. But that's not the only reason that I didn't enjoy this. I found that it had a rotten ending. I hated it.
No matter how much I disliked the story, the characters were actually really interesting. And I understand the reason it's so hard on them since it took place during the great depression. So, the main characters names are Lennie and George.
Lennie is so sweet. I think that he has a real child-like innocence and I feel horrible for him. He was really improving in remembering what to do and such, but I felt that his control over his strength seemed to be slipping more and more. As his memory grew stronger, his basic control (I suppose... I'm not so sure what  to call it) decreased. He just doesn't understand! Lennie is so big and strong. No wonder everyone would want him on the ranch!
George... He's like the opposite of Lennie. He's smart and such. He's also a small, tiny person. Not the best person that you'd want as a worker on your ranch. After what happened too Lennie, George just basically gave up on everything! I feel like he just went like, "who cares anymore?! Lennie's gone it doesn't matter. The dream's over." He just slipped. He fell. And he had no one to lean on anymore.
It was great to have Lennie and George together, because they had a wonderful relationship. They helped each other in ways no one would think. Lennie leaned on George. So George was like his father/boss/mentor. George could lean on Lennie. Lennie was the reason they got the jobs (because of his strength) and it also stops him from being so lonely. Also, Lennie is just like his rock. He stops him from going around wasting all their money on cathouses and bars and such.
Yes John Steinbeck is a great writer and did a great job on this. However I just didn't enjoy the ending and the story. The characters were brilliant. And he was really true to the time and place and such. Also he used really simple words so it was easy to read. It's just that what happened didn't really please me. :/ That's why I'm giving this book a 2 not a 3. It's still a great story, it's just not my type.

Hey guys!

So, I made these petitions and was hoping you guys could sign. :D So here is a little bit about them and the links to sign them. Also they are as a html on the side of this blog. ----->

First petition:
School Uniforms. What child likes to wear uniforms? My friends and I certainly don't. There is no one in the schools that I've been to - and have a uniform - like to wear them. We believe that we all should have the right to dress. What if it is in the wash or drying and you can't go to the store to buy it? What will you do? All you can do is get in trouble. They don't accept excuses. Some schools just give you a warning. However, some schools give you detention for it! Now, who wants that?! You may just wear the wrong shoes by accident or wrong jacket. Well, there's nothing you can do about it. You're doomed! So sign this petition to get rid of the awful uniforms! Link: http://www.change.org/petitions/schools-no-more-uniforms
