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.

    "Can't see a story like that been written nowadays"

    It's a melancholic and sad story about the unusual friendship of two men. The narration was great and it made me "see" the characters.

    "Beautiful, Poignant, and Sorrowful"

    Steinbeck was a masterful writer. Of Mice and Men is a masterpiece and this audible narration does it justice. I am still overwhelmed. I just finished. Do hear this narration. Read the book too. You will always remember.
