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.

    "Perfection"

    "Of Mice and Men" is one of my favorite stories. I've read it many times and have seen it performed several times. Gary Sinise was a perfect choice for reading it. He brought the characters to life as if I was watching the story unfold. Loved it and I'm sure I will listen again sometime.

    "A little too much gratuitous swearing"

    It was a good book that dealt with a challenging subject. the continual use of foul language however made it somewhat hard to listen to.

    Story
    "excellent story, beautifully read"
    What made the experience of listening to Of Mice and Men the most enjoyable?

    Gary Sinise and the way he interpreted each character


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Of Mice and Men?

    when Lenny crushes the hand


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

    no, I knew the result of the book. But I still feel sorry for Lenny when he is killed.


    Any additional comments?

    I could easily hear it again and again.

    "Enjoyable read. Good, relatable, thoughtout story."

    You may see yourself in George's life. I think a lot of people can relate to this story. Brings peace to your heart to know people may suffer in this world, just like you... knowing youre not alone, brings peace. Which is why, I think, it's such a good seller.
