Of Mice and Men

sorabji.com: Best book you've ever read: Of Mice and Men

Edgy on Monday, April 15, 2002 - 03:16 am:

    I have recommended this book to dozens of people and every one of them has loved it. Consider reading this book:

    It's less than 100 pages ( 1 - 2 hours reading ).
    It's by an American legend ( Steinbeck ).
    Wheather you know it or not, you already know bits of this story because it is regularly alluded to in American culture ( Think Looney Tunes - " I will Love him and pet him and call him George".

    I have a feeling that most of the people here have already read this and now our kids are getting ready to read it. I know in California it is required reading in high school. Haven't met anyone who hasn't read this book yet.

    I failed English in High School because the bookstore only had the Cliff Notes for Complete and Total Idiots version, "Of Mice", and they didn't have the sequel, "And Men". I only got a 50% on the test. Best laid plans...

    I read it just because I wanted too

    Hi Eri,

    Nice to meet you, my name is Mel and I haven't read this book.

    cute. Have you watched the movie? Gary Senise was great in it. The book, of course, it better than the movie. You understand the poor guys better.

    Does it count if you watched the movie?
    John Malkovich and Gary Senise starred, that's got to count for something.

    so far i haven't been a big steinbeck fan- but i think that 'of mice and men' is the one i haven't read yet

    i think dougie's been having hot monkey sex again.

    last night i found an old 1898 printing of 'silas marner' in a garage. i think it was a college book - it has study material at the beginning. i didn't read it when it was assigned to me in high school english, but i'm reading it now.

    it was 'red badge of courage' i didn't like, not that i remember it now

    i really enjoyed watching 'east of eden'

By patrick on Tuesday, April 16, 2002 - 03:03 pm:

    i liked Red Badge of Courage much the same way i liked All Quiet on the Western Front, much like the way i loved the movie Saving Private Ryan and Thin Red Line.

    But i have a weakness for amazing war flics and novels.

By eri on Tuesday, April 16, 2002 - 03:11 pm:

    Thin Red Line, used to have it. Laughed my ass off as Woody Harrelson blew his own ass off. I only like war flicks if they are about the war itself and not some other story line with a war in the background.

By dumbass on Tuesday, April 16, 2002 - 03:43 pm:

    I liked thin white lines.

By Dougie on Wednesday, April 17, 2002 - 08:55 am:

    No such luck (either getting hit on head or with hot monkey sex). I was just in a silly-assed mood that day.

    Never read Silas Marner -- any good droopy?

    Heather, you might check out Cannery Row and Sweet Thursday, my 2 favorite Steinbeck books.
