Publisher's Summary

Steinbeck’s tale of commitment, loneliness, hope, and loss remains one of America’s most widely read and beloved novels.

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.

Of Mice and Men also represents an experiment in form, which Steinbeck described as “a kind of playable novel, written in a novel form but so scened and set that it can be played as it stands.” A rarity in American letters, it achieved remarkable success as a novel, a Broadway play, and three acclaimed films.

    "Breathtakingly."

    Gary Sincese was made for this story, both on screen and narrator.
    This story pulls the listener into it as very few others can.

    "Wow!"

    This book was amazing. I read along with it, but the narration was helpful with remembering which character is who.
    Also it kind of made me feel like I was there with George and Lennie.

    "Amazing story, outstandingly performed"

    I don't have much to say to say beyond my review's title. This is one of the most outstanding stories ever written and Sinise performs it exquisitely.

    "Did not care for it"

    I really didn't care for the book I read the overview and thought it would be pretty good but I personally don't like all of the cussing.

    "Very enjoyable"

    This is my first audiobook. I'm so glad I chose this selection. Gary Sinise does a great job making the story come to life and rendering the various voices. The story itself is easy to follow and caught my interest. The various characters were well-drawn and with just the right amount of detail.

    "Great audio book"

    The beginning is difficult to hear with the music playing in the background - but once the music stopped it was perfect! Great audio book.

    "All time favorite"

    Listening to Gary Sinese read Steinbeck ' s masterpiece was perfect. Having read the book numerous times and having watched the movie, it was like listening to George narrate the story himself.
