Trudi Oh! and ... you know ... sometimes being a bitch is all a woman has to hold on to :)

Is that a quote from a book or movie? My wife said almost the exact same thing the other day. Or is it just such a truism that you all are born knowing it? An inborn knowledge or instinct...

Trudi It's a Stephen King quote from his novel Dolores Claiborne ... since Becky is such a King devotee I thought it the only response to her confession that she "can sometimes be a bit of a bitch" :) :)

Jim Ah! Thanks, Trudi.

I knew that sounded familiar! I haven't read Dolores Claiborne in years... Re-read city, 2013! :D

Anshul Bhatt Hi Becky. I finished this book last Sunday. Ever since those few sentences (that you quoted) have reverberated in my heart and mind. I thought I will come in today and write a review just for those few lines. Seems to me I dont need to. I am glad there's someone else (and definitely many more) who likes it just as much. Cheers!


Erin (*is in a reviewing slump*) Great review. I agree with pretty much everything you said and can't wait to check out more Steinbeck either

Andrew Smith As a big Stephen King fan, what is your sense of his references to this book in The Green Mile?

Hmm, you know, I never thought about that. I read The Green Mile before reading Of Mice and Men, so maybe I should re-read The Green Mile, huh? (I love the book, so it's no chore, that's for sure!) I can definitely see connections and influences though. I'll give them both a re-read one of these days and I'd be happy to discuss with you if you're still interested. :)
