Of Mice and Men, by John Steinbeck: I prefer not to read them.

So far, I have read Of Mice and Men and The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck, and I personally hated both. I know that there are books out there that are written with the intention of making the reader “think” or “feel” or “see outside the box,” but I just don’t want to read a depressing book. I am the kind of person who reads to get away from the depression and anxiety of everyday life and find a heartwarming story to lift my spirits. If you’re looking for a book that will leave you feeling like crap, then I highly recommend it, but if not, I don’t. Don’t get me wrong, Steinbeck is am excellent writer. Every line is eloquently written and his verbal imagery is impeccable, but his novels seem to focus on the most depressing subjects, and I prefer not to read them.
