I cheated my way through Mice and Men during high school, and then proceeded to watch the film adaptations and a few plays. The only other Steinbeck I have started was East of Eden and I got kinda lost in the 78 Characters he introduced in the first 8 pages. I really wanted to love it because some one I really respect referred to it as "her favorite".

Perhaps another day.

That was a great review. Somehow I missed it the first time you posted it. Glad you shared it here. I've inkybread of Mice and Men, but it looks like I ought to give East of Eden a shot.

Edit: have to leave that auto-correct. "Inkybread?"

It's a great book. I really enjoyed it.

Great... So you're now the second person I respect who loved the book... I need to just buy the thing to take the pressure of the library return date away.
