I encourage all of you book lovers out there to click through and read my friend Cassie’s take on OF MICE AND MEN, which also happens to be one of the best books I’ve ever read. She did a great job capturing the emotional punch this novel packs, all these years later.
I read the book in high school, which may be why I still credit Mrs. Kirtley has being the best English teacher ever. It really turned me on to early 20th century literature and made me understand the way in which novels could reflect hisotric realities.
Now, I’d like to reread it and see if it packs the same punch. Juding by Cassie’s post, it certainly will.
