    This book portrays how The Depression really did hit America and how finding jobs was now not easy. I felt sympathy for Lennie because of his 'conditions' because he just liked stroking soft items but despite this, George was still there for him when the others thought he was nothing but dumb. Their friendship was rather charming and funny; George scowling at him when he did stupid things (which was lot) but still let him have the idea of rabbits when they get their own ranch.

    The book takes place during the time it was written, The Great Depression, where the American economy took an unexpected nosedive and unemployment sprang from 14% -

    19%. The title is taken from Robert Burns’s famous poem, To a Mouse, wherein states:

    "The best-laid plans of mice and men/ go oft awry." Nearly half of the origional manuscript was destroyed by Steinbeck’s Irish Setter puppy, it took two months to re-create.
