For the month of May, the book that has been chosen is, “Of Mice and Men” by the talented author John Steinbeck. This classic story is about two friends who are trying to save money during the depression era to start a ranch and get away from working under bosses and away from being “puppets” of others. The two men are George and Lennie, George is the business mind , all the while Lennie is more of a slow wit.
Steinbeck wrote this story to show about the American dream and the trials a person must go through to achieve such a status. Everyone who reads this can see themselves as the characters and see that they themselves are trying to achieve the American dream.
I read this book as a kid, then again in high school. It is a true classic, one that will stand the test of time in literature.
