Only four stars because that ending hurt me so but this was a genuinely written book. So impactful without much action at all. And now I wallow in pain.

I'm a huge Steinbeck fan, so I'm biased. But this was, I believe, my favorite of his novels.

I picked this book up on a whim just to catch up on my reading goal. I thought I was going to have good time. I did not. It was pretty much a 'meh' experience for me. I did not find anything special in it. I don't have strong feelings about it. In fact, I found it to be boring most of the time. I have seen better executions of the themes that were present in the book like strange bonds/relationships and the harsh realities of dreams. 

I did not like George. I think Lennie and Curly's wife deserved better. Although it was a product of its time, I also wish that it was not that racist and misogynist.
