    While the powerlessness of the laboring class is a recurring theme in Steinbeck’s work of the late 1930s, he narrowed his focus when composing Of Mice and Men (1937), creating an intimate portrait of two men facing a world marked by petty tyranny, misunderstanding, jealousy, and callousness. But though the scope is narrow, the theme is universal: a friendship and shared dream that make an individual’s existence meaningful.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, a good quick read of a classic.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    George. He was a compassionate and loyal friend to Lenny.


    Have you listened to any of Gary Sinise’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No but I would like to listen to more. He was a terrific reader.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed and cried. It was a great story and a classic I had never read before.


    Any additional comments?

    Makes me want to revisit Steinbeck's other works.

    When it comes to the holidays, no story brings us back to the true spirit of giving like O. Henry’s classic "The Gift of the Magi". So this year we’ve asked some of your favorite Audible narrators—Audie Award winners Katherine Kellgren, Oliver Wyman, and Jonathan Davis—to bring to life this timeless tale, plus two more of O. Henry’s gems: "The Cop and the Anthem" and "The Last Leaf", in this holiday collection.

    "SCWEEEET!"
    Overall

    What a nice gift! Being the skeptic I am, I fully expected to find a discount coupon but this is an honest to goodness gift and a great one at that!

    Thank you, Audible for giving a genuine gift to your members!
