This was such an entertaining and well-read audiobook that I didn't want to pause it. Sinise adds such life to the story and really shows how Of Mice and Men was originally written to be a play. My students enjoyed this audiobook more than his movie!

I cannot add anything to the discussion except to plead with you, if you are reading this review, to buy and cherish this title. The story is powerful and perfectly written. The narration is excellent.
Please, if you have never read this or if you 'had' to read it in school, get this book and enjoy it.
This is so good it ought to be considered art in the public domain and available for free. It's that good.
George, he is a great mix of loving sympathy, but also has a tough, brooding side as well.
Gary Sinise gives an incredible reading. He brings the characters to life in this wonderful novel by John Steinbeck.My struggling readers listened to this and were engaged and delighted by the story and the reading.
East of Eden or the Grapes of Wrath. They are both epic stories by John Steinbeck, definitely worth the read.
When George is talking to Slim about Lennie and how they got to know each other and how they became friends. The ending is quite moving as well.
There are some sad moments - but it also offers some comic relief.
Of course, it is a classic. I listened with my 11 and 12 year old in the car to and from work and they loved it. The narrator was great.
Just a normal guy.
Steinbeck has a way off pulling you back in time with his story. A very valuable life journey and a great listen. Well worth your time.
Powerful, Real, Tragic
When George had to put Lennie down
Voice inflections were awesome
Two drifters who only had each other and a dream
Very Good Storytelling
I cannot compare Of Mice and Men with any other books, as I have not read much books about this time period.
At the beginning of the book when George and Laney where around the campfire before they gone to Farm. It give a good introduction of the two main characters and their relasionship.
Yes, because of its shorten and good storytelling.
Just plain Outstanding
George, I liked the way his character was described and portrayed.
Lennie, I liked his voice
I was very sad at the end, felt a tear coming.
Absolutely! Lenny and George are embodied with Gary Sinese's voice and it's a home run!
The tangled kindness and tolerance of Lenny by George...and the brilliant foreshadowing of their sad fate.
His image matches George in my head and he flat out nails Lenny and the other characters as well!
Steinbeck's beloved tale
