July Books 1) Of Mice and Men, by John Steinbeck

Wow. Just… Wow.

This is too short a book to rave about at length. It begins with a dead mouse and ends with a dead man. It has tremendous characterisation and horrible choices. It has biting but subtle commentary on gender, race and disability. Perhaps the ending is just a bit too inevitable, but it had a tremendous buildup. Superb, and I am amazed that I had never thought to read this before.
