John STEINBECK Of Mice and Men
By Helga Puigdomènech Sanjuán, 2º Bachillerato EFL
This is a short novel about the life of George Milton and Lennie Small, and the difficulties they have to face in the times of Great Depression: finding a job and trying to make their dream of having their own land come true. It is indeed a very passionate novel where you may find similarities with your own life and dreams.
John Steinbeck uses a wide range of interesting vocabulary. This may be the reason why I wouldn't recommend this book to beginners. It is easy to lose track of the story if you are looking up all the vocabulary you do not understand.
