    A poignant tale of friendship

    Seldom in life you come across a tome whose essence lingers in your mind like a strand of dark hair on white Formica surface. In the deluge of hot-cake fiction meant for the consumption the masses bearing such headers on its jacket as "unputdownable" and "sensational", this novella will strike you one that really does credit to the aforementioned words. Apart from Khaled Hosseni's two masterpieces, especially The Kite Runner, I don't think I have ever been moved to tears by any book apart fro...

    Incredible !!!

    'Of Mice and Men' is a gem of a work. Despite being a short text, the characters spread over the canvass effortlessly.

The writi...

    Packs a mighty punch

    I agree with all the other reviewers here. Its a short, simple, sad, hard hitting (to the extent of being gut wrenching) realistic look at life in America in a different time. I wish it was longer but however you look at it, Of Mice And Men deserves its spot as one of English literature's finest works.

    Of Mice and Men

    A brilliant book by John Steinbeck. It personafies the culture of the time trying to lead the author to an better understanding of they percieve as important. Written at a time of oppurtunity, it is a simple read showing us the simplicity with which our lives maybe lived if we decide correctly what is important in this life.
