Ahh Of Mice and Men... Definitely an underrated book, I agree. I studied this back in secondary school and loved the movie too. It's a book that will leave an imprint on your life forever.

Poor Lennie was, at heart, a gentle giant who was misunderstood but sadly didn't know his own strength (physically). *sniffs and wipes away a tear* A worthy read for sure. And I never knew it was on the banned book list untill I saw Jordan's post! Wow!


 An introduction – I read this book in two days, this is not me gloating this is one friend telling another friend; that’s you, that you can do this in two days. 236 more words
