My Classics!

Anyone a bibliophile? I AM! I absolutely love literary classics. I have been building my collection of new classic design books that Barnes & Noble carries for about six months now. THEY ARE SO PRETTY!

Publisher Synopsis

The compelling story of two outsiders striving to find their place in an unforgiving world. Drifters in search of work, George and his simple-minded friend Lennie have nothing in the world except each other and a dream–a dream that one day they will have some land of their own. Eventually they find work on a ranch in California’s Salinas Valley, but their hopes are doomed as Lennie, struggling against extreme cruelty, misunderstanding and feelings of jealousy, becomes a victim of his own strength. Tackling universal themes such as the friendship of a shared vision, and giving voice to America’s lonely and dispossessed, Of Mice and Men has proved one of Steinbeck’s most popular works, achieving success as a novel, a Broadway play and three acclaimed films.

Teal Review

I have a love hate relationship with this book. Why? Because I am not sure whether or not I enjoyed this book or found it to be depressing. Of Mice and Men is a book that made me realize the ugly in the world and the way people with disabilities are treated. I would go so far as to say that this book made me grow up a little after that realization. I would definitely recommend that every person read Of Mice and Men at least once in their life! John Steinbeck has some amazing books and his writing style is easy to understand and imagine up in your head. He is a “classic” writer to me!

Happy Reading!
