    Don't get me wrong, I like the content of the book, if you follow the exercises and give it your all, you will, probably improve your mental capacity. The biggest problem, is that this book is not meant to be an audiobook, as you will need to read sentences to actually do some of those exercises. The PDF that does comes with the book does help out, a little, however, more likely you will be out and about and will not be looking at a screen. So when the narrator says look at a figure, in the PDF, it is somewhat hard to look at when you do not have it in front of you. So if want to get the most out of this book, just buy the physical book, it will make you life a little more easier.

    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.

    If you could sum up Of Mice and Men in three words, what would they be?

    Very Good Storytelling


    What other book might you compare Of Mice and Men to and why?

    I cannot compare Of Mice and Men with any other books, as I have not read much books about this time period.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, because of its shorten and good storytelling.
