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.
