Publisher's Summary

Between this work and The Grapes of Wrath, it's difficult to state definitively which was the more significant of John Steinbeck's works. However, there is no arguing the fact that he is one of the most important literary figures in American history.
Streetwise George and his big, childlike friend Lennie are drifters, searching for work in the fields and valleys of California. They have nothing except the clothes on their back, and a hope that one day they’ll find a place of their own and live the American dream. But dreams come at a price. Gentle giant Lennie doesn’t know his own strength, and when they find work at a ranch he gets into trouble with the boss’s daughter-in-law. Trouble so bad that even his protector George may not be able to save him....

Very enlightening

A very touching story. Was on the reading list for university. The narrator is excellent and the story is deserving of it's 'classic' status.

I bought this as my son was studying Of Mice and Men for GCSE English Literature, and we listened to it in the car on the way to school. Even though he was already familiar with the story and the characters, my son and his younger brother thoroughly enjoyed listening to the audiobook read in an authentic American dialect by the excellent narrator. I loved it too, particularly the unhurried pace which is thoroughly in keeping with the novel.
