One of the very few books school made me read that I enjoyed. Really glad I rushed ahead of the class because the teacher spoiled this part to every one else >.< really like how you have the two of them posed especially the arm holding the gun. Foreshortening is a bitch XD
This book would have been a nice read, if not for my teacher breathing down my neck when it was assigned. She cared more about comparing the book to the poem "To A Mouse", than us actually reading it. To this day, I see very little connection between the two, if any. Certainly not enough to write an entire persuasive essay about, that's for certain.
It took me two school days to read this book, (of course, I was rushing, so I wouldn't have to read it during Christmas vacation this year), but I still understood the story completely. And trust me, I actually cried a bit, and felt rather depressed when poor Lenny died. He's innocent, but nobody, 'cept least George is gonna believe him, especially Curley. He married a harlot, and Curley's a beast. HAH
"The Beast and the Harlot." XD (Avenged Sevenfold song). But still, the ending is quite tragic and depressing. The dumbest thing of all is what Carlson says at the end of the book about George and Slim.
