Of Mice and Men

Of Mice and Men - John Steinbeck In my opinion, this is an amazing work of art, for sure!

With that said, however, I do feel like parts of the story was cut too short. In fact, maybe it just feels to me like parts of the story was lacking completely. As someone who grew up doing farm work, for extra money during the summers, it felt to me like John Steinbeck had completely forgot to write about the sweat and blood that it takes to do that kind of work. He ran the story around men doing work on farms, but he never dug into the the physical act of actually doing the work, which would have taken up most of the men's time during the day. Other than that, though, as I said, this book was well crafted and is an amazing work of art. It is worth reading several times over.
