This book is highly recommended (by Americans). Once you have read it, you'll never forget it! This novel is written by a Nobel-prize author so "Of Mice And Men" is among the greatest ones of American Literature. It is not a love story but a lifelong friendship, telling a moving story of two migrant workers with their "American dream". This novel has been very controversial since it was published in 1937 and there is also a very great film (same name) based on the novel. You should watch that movie as well.
