I think Of Mice and Men needs a sequel. Write one for me, UG. Please.

EDIT: ****ing pronoun had no antecedent.

Curley's wife leaves Curley and goes to Canada with George. George makes it big with the Porcupine Gold Rush (see wikipedia). George starts a farm where he raises rabbits and erects a large statue of lennie.

Am I the only one who gets the feeling this is an english task you can't be arsed to do?
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

no....

how about George does an evil ritual by sacrificing the guy with the vaseline glove and raises Lennie back to life as a brain eating zombie who goes on a rampage around southern america.

Of Mice and Men is like a middle school book, dude.

Anyways...According to research, Steinback ended it so he could get some quick cash for some beer. What a jerk.

I couldnt care less if its a 'middle school' or 'grade 9' (whatever ages they are, I have no clue) It was a damn good book.

And good to Steinback for getting beer money out of a book, which happened to turn in to a classic.

I think 'Of Mice and Men' needs to be taken out of the school curriculum. It's a poor book to study and should have been ousted decades ago. Shit, even when my MOTHER was in school (y'know, back when they hunted Dinosaurs and stuff) the book was old and was viewed as a poor book to study.

Of Mice and Men is the only book I ever actually enjoyed. If you want to read a pointless book, read Huck Finn. There are large portions of that book rendered entirely unreadable, I literally wanted to go back in time and push Mark Twain into the Mississippi for writing words for Jim, those parts were unreadable, and pointless.

MArk Twain is a great author. Maybe you should learn how to read.

Of Mice and Men is a good book too. I really enjoyed it.

what you are referring to are the coloquialisms. and it takes an american english genius to write with them that accurately. just because your not intelligent to understand it, doesnt mean its bad.

I don't mean to totally shoot you down and say something completely opposite to your oppinion....but that's what I'm going to do. I really liked the book, and steinbeck's writing style doesn't have to be a new sounding style. That's how his writing style is, and a lot of people(including me) enjoy it. No I don't think it should be taken out of the school system, because it's a perfect example of the writing style of the time(although The Grapes of Wrath would be a better pick from steinbeck's work). You have your opinion, and I respect it, I can see where you're coming from, but I just have to disagree.(that's me saying,"Please don't ban me!")

Edit: Yeah he was because he was allowed to sleep in the bunk house with the rest of the men, while Crooks (who was black) had a room seperate in the stable.

I got flamed. I fail to see the point where a genius of the literary arts is required to write down broken English. Care to elaborate on where an above average knowledge of the English language comes into play when chopping words into sections with apostrophes and ripping out letters. Of course, maybe that's 'cause I grew up around that language. Since I'm such a raving dolt, care to elaborate on the matter?

I didn't read it till grade... 8 or 9. Which is Junior High/High School for me.

Either way. It ended where it needed to. The book was horrible enough, we don't need a sequel.

If I had grammar and spelling like yours, I'd be a little more careful about kicking down on other peoples intelligence.

The book is actually really good, and there's a lot of symbolics in it aswell, although your average student might not pick up on it (I barely picked up on some of it when we read it last year, or actually we watched the movie in class , but I had read it earlier. But then our religions teacher went through it throughly later, which helped a lot.

Ok, I'll write one specifically for high school English teachers to assign as a two-month reading project.

John at the Store

John is at the store. He likes apples. Apples are red. Blood is red. Sally has blood. John likes to eat red things. John ate Sally. Sally had AIDS, so John died two weeks later.

Then, I'll even attach a post-read assignment. It goes like this, why did Sally dead?

I never said that the rest of the book didn't require writing ability, nor did I say that I didn't like Mark Twain. I was trying to allude to the fact that I disliked the fact that I had to read this book as a school assignment, especially the analysis of Jim's speeches. I'd much rather, however, read a book that you wrote. Then we can judge if you're a better writer than Mark Twain.
