I did not really like the language of the book. The colloquial speech was a bit difficult to read and put me to sleep on an early flight (probably my own issue as I'm not a native English speaker). But I enjoyed the premise of the book. The metaphors were relevant and well laid out. Lennie's character was beautifully written and my heart was breaking for him.

the ending sure was sad but it didn’t leave me in shambles as much as i’d like it to. why the hell did he use the n word so much? i almost went crazy reading that one chapter where he used it over and over again i swear he could’ve just used Crooks name it’s not that hard. george loves lennie so much that kind of part is just heartbreaking but overall it’s a book. i’m really bad at ratings idfk i just don’t love it and don’t think id recommend it to anyone
