John Steinbeck's Great Stories

by Barbara H on May 31, 2012

Mr. Steinbeck was a great story teller. It was almost as if you were there. Since I grew up in the Salinas Valley it was almost personal. Great interaction between the characters.


Ist Steinbeck I have read

by lesliejean on Nov 18, 2011

I was interested in the title- a well known quote from Robert Burns "the best- laid plans o' mice an' men gang aft agley". The style of the book is also from another era and interesting from a historical viewpoint.I can understand why it has been a studied text for English Literature. Descriptions are first class. Have now moved on to another book by this author "Cannery Row". Now in my retirement years I am discovering a whole new world from my armchair.

This book was assigned for me my freshman year in high school and I didn't think I would even like it, but I was terribly wrong. I really enjoyed the adventure of these two men and I grew very fond of Lenny. It was surprising and sad all at the same time. Very great book.


Still relatable

John Steinbeck turned the search for the American dream and turned it into a nightmare. George and Lenny are two drifting farm hands looking to find work to earn enough money to buy a small farm of their own. Its the only dream they share to find a place to call home. The problem is Lenny is big ,strong and slow. He doesn't know his own strength or realize there will be consequences for his actions. George can keep him safe for only so long. What George hoped to be their last job for someone else turns out to be their last job ever. Written in language of the common man of the time, Steinbeck does an excellent of capturing George's desperation and Lenny's fear. A moving story that has been always one of my favorites.
