Read in January, 1978

John Steinbeck is an incredible writer. Let's just put that out there. But this is such a depressing and sad story. And while I think it is extremely well written and has all the great things you want to discuss in a classroom, I have decided I don't like sad stories and so I couldn't give it the 5 stars it probably deserves.

Dblaroche Actually, if you see a theatrical production of Of Mice and Men, you will be surprised at the amount of humor in it. The ending is still heartbreaking, but it is not unrelenting sadness.

Lisa Thanks for the reminder!
