Beschreibung

Streetwise George and his big, childlike friend Lennie are drifters, searching for work in the fields and valleys of California. They have nothing except the clothes on their back, and a hope that one day they’ll find a place of their own and live the American dream. But dreams come at a price. Gentle giant Lennie doesn’t know his own strength, and when they find work at a ranch he gets into trouble with the boss’s daughter-in-law. Trouble so bad that even his protector George may not be able to save him....

Meisterleistung

Literatur der aboluten Spitzenklasse. Dieser Klassiker von John Steinbeck lässt den Hörer mit Sicherheit nicht unbewegt. Das Schicksal des sanften Riesen geht einem unter die Haut. Ein Muss für Freunde amerikanischer Literatur. Wenn möglich sollte man das Hörbuch in der englischen Originalfassung genießen.

tantalizingly painful

From pretty much the beginning you know that something will go wrong. The author shows you a cliff and then slowly, methodically and thoroughly describes step by step the way to and over it. People, their wickedness displayed, their dreams and hopes dissected and then destroyed. The author definitely doesn't love the characters, they just example to show the phenomenon of human suffering and cruelty. This is *the* difference between this book and The Grapes of Wrath, where the author puts warmth in his characters.

The speaker is absolutely fantastic.
