Review: I’m confused at seeing myself having given this three stars, as I, from memory, am pretty sure I liked it enough for it to warrant a four-star rating. If anything I think I found it to me too short, but Of Mice and Men is a classic that I’m very glad to have read. The last scene especially was very impactful, and I still remember the move in my head that played out at the end of this book.
