Collection II (Land of Fright Collections Book 2) punch I think that says something about the masterful writing where the story takes over so much that you keep reading despite the clear sense of where it is going without having to rely on suspense or twists instead going forward just on the impact of the story itself I ought to of shot that dog myself George I shouldn t ought to of let no stranger shoot my dogI used to work with Special Education kids some time ago And I have seen first hand what Steinbeck describes in Of Mice and Men the childlike vulnerability and innocence often combined withhysical strength just waiting for something bad to happen The children we took care of some of which topped my 5 3 frame by a foot or so and outweighed me by a good hundred The Elders Speak pounds but despite that a few times I had tohysically The Pharisees Guide to Total Holiness put myself on between them and a smaller child had unlike Lennie the society that is determined torotect them They were luckier than Thirteenth Child (Frontier Magic, poor George s charge But I could not help buticture some of them who have forever secured spots in my heart in place of Lennie Small feeling nothing but dread and sadness Lennie who is as innocent as one gets and of Lennie Small feeling nothing but dread and sadness Lennie who is as innocent as one gets and as much of a unwilling menace as one can be And it was soul crushingI think the impact of this story was that it did not have me taking sides I felt bad for Lennie I felt awful for Curley s wife who does not even have a NAME in this story I felt sad for George and what he had to do And I felt bad for the whole bunch of men who had names and stories and a woman who got one but not the other You God damn tramp be said viciously You done it di n t you I s Craft Notes for Animators pose you re glad Ever body knowed you d mess things up You wasn t no good You ain t no good now you lousy tartAnd that s where this book lost stars for me Curley s wife the unwilling almost antagonistvictim of this story The woman who had no name except for theossessive one of her husband whose roperty and therefore trouble for everyone else she was viewed as It seemed that she was the one getting the blame not as much the crazy volatile husband of hers After all she asked for trouble didn t she At least that s the nagging feeling I got from this story from the way her character was handled from the way it was repeatedly stated that a tart like her meant trouble for a man Blame the victim mentality does not sit well with me and I can t help but think that Steinbeck did that view spoilerAnd the words Poor bastard that George utters over her corpse thinking of Lennie not about the young woman who was brutally murdered but of Lennie the murderer those made me so sad for the victim that did not get her share of sadness hide spoiler It s the way Steinbeck describes things that gets meCrooks the negro stable buck had his bunk in the harness "ROOM A LITTLE SHED THAT LEANED OFF THE WALL "a little shed that leaned off the wall the barn On one side of the little room there was a suare four aned window and on the other a narrow Popular Representations of Development plank door leading into the barn Crooks bunk was a long box filled with straw on which his blankets were flung On the wall by the window there wereegs on which hung broken harness in Sister for Sale process of being mended strips of new leather and under the window itself a little bench for leather working tools curved knives and needles and balls of linen thread and a small hand riveter Onegs were also ieces of harness a split collar with the horsehair stuffing sticking out a broken hame and a trace chain with its leather covering split Crooks had his apple box over his bunk and in it a range of medicine bottles both for and in it a range of medicine bottles both for and for the horses There were cans of saddle soap and a drippy can of tar with its aint brush sticking over the edge And scattered about the floor were a number of Two Views on the Doctrine of the Trinity personalossessions for being alone Crooks could leave his things about ad being a stable buck and a cripple he was ermanent than Alternate cover edition and format for ISBN 9781101530900The compelling story of two outsiders striving to find their lace in an unforgiving world Drifters in search of work George and his simple minded friend Lennie have nothing in the world except each other and a dre. He other men and he had accumulated ossessions than he could carry on his backNone of this is relevant to the story and yet a middle chapter opens up with this vivid scene Steinbeck succeeds because the characters he aints in your head are exact The first time I saw the movie that was made out of this story it was just as I had envisioned it Though the story great itself the reason I will come back to this book is for the little things the very things that have made me love Steinbeck so much I first read Of Mice And Men my sopho year of high school when it was a reuired reading in Mrs Beeler s class I recall disliking almost all reuired school readings up to this oint though admittedly I had skipped out on the summer reading roject of The Grapes Of Wrath When this book was assigned I knew it was different I blew through it reading it in a day or two even though I wasn t supposed to For once there was a school book that I enjoyed And all the credit in the world to my teacher who chose other good books the rest of the year So it s been 6 7 years since I ve read this and now reading it for the second time it s just as memorable as I remember The story sticks with you the imagery sticks The characters are among Steinbeck s best ainted in such a crystal clear vision of the timeIt s a near Mostly Mama perfect short story and one that I will surely revisit throughout my life I think I ve been avoiding John Steinbeck consciously or subconsciously ever since I was a horse loving teenager and thought that The Red Pony would be a niceleasant book to read I didn t read any Steinbeck books for yearsBut I was in the local library The Naked Man puttering around in the general fiction shelves and happened toull this one out and noticed how short it was only 107 Damias Children pages I had just finished reading Jonathan Livingston Seagull which was a 127age overdose of cheesy 70 s inspiration and it occurred to me that by reading this book to offset JLS I could restore the cosmic balance in my life or something like thatLennie and George are a uniue air of friends George is restless intelligent and often short tempered Lennie is huge and incredibly strong although mentally damaged He has a childlike sweetness but is easily confused and frightened and that combined with his strength makes him threatening to others Somehow despite their differences the two have formed a friendship George tries to rotect Lennie from the world and the world from Lennie It s a difficult task But they have their dreams and Backlash : La guerre froide contre les femmes plans of alace of their own where they can tend a garden and raise animals And Lennie can take care of the rabbits It s the most heavenly thing he can imagineGeorge and Lennie are hired as field hands at a ranch in California and the foreshadowings of disaster start to come thick and fast An old sheepdog whose usefulness has Die Botin des Königs (Reiter-Trilogie passed is unceremoniously shot The owner s son Curley comes around to their bunkhouse spoiling for a fight Curley s young bored wife comes around even often looking for a different kind of trouble The hands are sure that they only need a month or two of wages to achieve theirlans of a Patagonia Express place of their own but the best laid schemes of mice and men gang oft agleyI was expecting to read about shattered dreams but I was surprised and touched by the strength of the theme of true friendship not just the friendship between George and Lennie but also the friendship and understanding offered by Slim the ranch foreman With all of the loneliness and cruelty and loss and disappointment that life can bring it s this one message of hope that I choose to take away from this short butowerful book I remember reading this at school at being completely uninterested this at school at being completely uninterested the story I remember the teacher droning on about basic lot allegories before we read each section she would tell us what certain things meant "BEFORE WE HAD EVEN SEEN THEM "we had even seen them would explain how this ortrays a vital art of American culture and a vital element of human nature All in all we were told what to see in the book before we even began reading Perhaps she should have just let us read it first and see what we took from it before being told how to read it I hated it at the time I hated being told that assages meant certain things when clearly criticism is just speculation This wasn t effective teaching it was being told how to think She should have Seven Days in Utopia prized open our minds and made us engage with it When I approached it again years later I did so with of an open mind I was determined to find in the book than I d been taught to see And I did Lenny and George naively dream of the farm they dream of a retreat where they can reside in friendship without having to answer to any master They wouldn t have to go to work they can simply work for themselves Running their own farm would mean that they are self sustainable They could grow crops for themselves and choose when they laboured they would be free Well George wants this Lenny just wants a few rabbits toet The attractiveness of the dream draws in Candy who is very old and very lonely He doesn t want to end up like his dog Lots of Love put down because of his years He wants someone torotect him and care for him in his advanced years The three become united by this shared dream but it is nothing but fancy Just like heaven Ever body wants a little Reclaiming Love piece of lan I readlenty of books out here Nobody never gets to heaven and nobody gets no land It s just in their head They re all the time talkin about it but it s jus in their head Indeed the American dream doesn t exist in this book Only harsh cold reality awaits the Vegangelical protagonists Crooks for all his cruel and understandable bitterness was right in the end The farm is just a dream It is evocative of the loneliness within the human soul and how we will always long for the impossible It s impossible because there is no sunset over the rainbow Life doesn t uite work like that People don t always get what they want The world is a cruel unforgivinglace here This is embodied by Lenny he is vulnerable and emotionally weak He is completely unaw. Am a dream that one day they will have some land of their own Eventually they find work on a ranch in California’s Salinas Valley but their hopes are doomed as Lennie struggling against extreme cruelty misunderstanding and feelings of jealousy becomes a victim of his Are of the vicious strength he ossesses He never truly understands the situation He almost walks through the world blind The world he sees is different to that of everyone else s So this is a story about the outsiders about the unloved and misunderstood This a story about those that long for an alternative to the drudgery of standard human existence but have their expectations cut short This is a story about how we judge Being the Best Me people based upon their appearance and how we label them unjustly This is a story that Mary Shelley would have loved a story where a character with an innocent heart is destroyed by the world he should have been accepted byFacebook Twitter Insta Academia The title of this novel is only 50% accurate a veryoor effort Yes it s about men but there s little or nothing about mice in these Witch Creek (Wildlands pages Mice enthusiasts will come away disappointed This got me thinking about other novel titles You would have to say that such books as The Slap The Help The Great Gatsby Gangsta Granny Mrs Dalloway and Hamlet have very good titles because they are all about a slap some help a Gatsby who was really great a no good granny a woman who was married to a guy called Dalloway and a Hamlet I have noroblem with those titles But you may be Sleight (AVRA-K poring over theages of To Kill a Mockingbird for a long fruitless evening to find any mockingbirds coming to any harm at all Indeed to coin a Slave Labor Graphics Titles phrase no mockingbirds were harmed during the making of that book So I rate that title only 5% accurate And some titles seem to have a word missing such as Conan Doyle s The Sign of Four Four what It doesn t say Perhaps he completed the book and left the title to the very last minute and died as he was writing it down Same thing with The Crimson Petal and the White White what Wallpaper Hat Cat Mouse Mockingbird Could be The Crimson Petal and the White Gangsta Granny for all we know Aoor title And what about The Dharma Bums I think a Cigarette or You Out is clearly missing from that title Another grossly misleading title is Women in Love I can t be the only reader who was expecting some strong girl on girl action from DH Lawrence but I would have been better off fast forwarding to the middle Top Tips for IELTS Academic part of Mulholland Drive Now that s what I call Women in Love DH take note Another badly chosen title is Hitler s Niece yes it is 100% accurate but at first glance it can look like Hitler s Nice and surely that is going tout off a lot of The Creative Writing Handbook potential readers except for the readers you really don t want And what about Call it Sleep call what sleep The Catcher in the Rye The Postman Always Rings Twice Flaubert s Parrot The Camomile Lawn sometimes obscure titles can be solved if you understand that the author is referring to Death so the Catcher is Death the Postman is Death the lawn is Death and the Parrot is Death Of course I may have got that wrong It s something I read somewhere and it just stuck in my mind Some other titles I would give low ratings to The Turn of the Screw completely baffled me I know that screw is what inmates callrison officers so I was expecting a story about a concert ut on by the staff of a large correctional institution It was nothing like that The Little Prince according to my system does rate 100% but I still think The Little Faux naif Idiot would have been better The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay actually I rate this as 90% accurate there Are Two Guys Who Are Named Kavalier And Clay And two guys who are named Kavalier and Clay and do have adventures but they aren t amazing A Clockwork Orange this must be a metaphor for I have given up thinking of a title for my novel No Name like A Clockwork Orange this must be where the author couldn t think of any title so in this case he left it without one like the Byrds album Untitled or by Sigur Ros or several aintings by De Kooning and those other abstract expressionist types but to call a novel No Name is self defeating because No Name then becomes its name

Day I d exhausted my current supply and I needed a short term fix to hold me until I could get some new roduct today So I grabbed Of Mice and Men off the bookshelf last nightAnd I m glad I did because I d somehow remembered that this was a depressing book "How Wrong I Was "wrong I was sure there were some tense moments like when you think Lennie will accidently hurt Curley s wife in the barn What a relief when George and Candy come in at the last minute and stop anything bad from happening And isn t it nice that the scare changes both Curley and his wife so that they have a much better marriage and new appreciation for each otherPlus it leads to the great moment when Curley is so grateful that he fronts George Lennie and Candy the money to finally buy the ranch of their dreams Oh and that last scene with George and Candy on the orch of their new home while Lennie tends the rabbits brought a tear to my eyeWhat s that you say I got the ending wrong No I m uite certain this is what
