1) What did you like about the book?
What I liked most about the book Of Mice and Men is the fact that John Steinbeck described the characters so well. As I was reading the story, I could see each character in mind because each aspect of the character was described. Another I liked about the book was that George and Lennie had such a bond. In books I have read I have not often seen such companionship from two people. George would do anything for Lennie.
2) What did you dislike about the book?
What I disliked about the book was how Steinbeck went into so much detail about the scenery. It was not important to the book so why did he have to waste two pages describing trees in Soledad. I understand him ...view middle of the document...
I know Carlson was in the book to shot Candyâ€™s dog but what did Whit do? I would also ask the author why he chooses to make Lennie mentally challenged. I wonder how the book would be different if Lennie was just like George. Would they of been able to achieve their dream of owning their own land?
4) What would you want to change about the book?
What I would want to change about the book is that I would want to make it longer. I felt like it just got good and then bam! Lennieâ€™s dead and George did it. If the book was longer I probably would have liked it better. I think it would be cool if a chapter actually took place in Weed. Instead of people just talking about what happened.
5) What would you rate the book on a scale of 1-10?
On a scale of one to ten with ten being my favorite book, I would probably rate this book a five. I rate it a five because they bad things and the good things kind of weight themselves out. So there are as many bad things as good. My favorite book is Tears of a Tiger by Sharon Draper. No book can even come close to that in my opinion. I even think that I am rating this book to high but I will stick with a five.
6) Would you recommend this yes or no and why?
I would recommend this book because overall it has a very good story line. I really got into this book. When Lennie died I was sad for George. Once I got to chapter four my eyes were glued to the book. I did not put it down until I finished it. Once I was done I was shocked how much I read because I really do not like to read. So if a book can keep my attention for an hour and a half straight it must be something worth reading for other people.
