Hated the book purely for we had study it for 6 months for GCSEs, but asides from that, It is a interesting insight into the attitudes during the great despression. I have a personal interest in the 20s and around that era so it was insightful, if I didn't have to read it for schools sake, I would probably get round to it eventually. I like the constant foreshadowing of Candy's dog and Lennie, it makes you think.

It was pretty depressing that fact they were so close to achieving their dream and they were cut down in their prime. I think him shooting Lenny was the point of the book, 'the best laid plans of mice and men often go astray'.

Also, I hate Curley... just saying :]
