Of Mice And Men


George and Lennie are an unlikely pair: George is small and quick, and Lennie is a man of tremendous size and simple mind. But together they’ve formed a family, rallying against seclusion and alienation. As laborers in California’s vegetable fields in the Great Depression, they find work where they can, but they have big dreams of owning land and a shack they can call their own. So when they land jobs on a ranch in the Salinas Valley, their big dreams suddenly seem within reach. But George cannot guard the childlike Lennie from life’s provocations, nor can he predict the consequences of Lennie’s unswerving obedience to what George has taught him. A tragic and moving story of friendship, loneliness, and the dispossessed, Of Mice and Men is classic John Steinbeck—heart wrenching and remarkable. Penguin Random House Canada is proud to bring you classic works of literature in e-book form, with the highest quality production values.

Of Mice And Men And Zombies


Have you ever questioned how Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck would have went if there was a zombie apocalypse as opposed to the Great Depression? Well, I did. What started as a fun personal project quickly escalated into something bigger. This is a short novella, about half the length of an average book and does not fit into the Among the Dead series. "Originally published in 1937 by John Steinbeck, reimagined and corrupted by Ryan Colley in 2018 for this satirical novella. George Milton, an intelligent and quick witted survivor, and Lennie Small, a physically strong but intellectually challenged childlike individual, are two displaced ranch workers fleeing the apocalypse. Forced to move from place to place, partially due to Lennie's misdeeds and mainly due to the undead roaming the land. They both search for work in a collapsing world in an attempt to buy their own corner of heaven where they will be safe together from the "Sick Ones" and "live off the fatta the lan." For fans of the original novel, apocalypse fiction, or for those looking for something different."

Of Mice And Men


At the core of the story Steinbeck wrote as a play-novella are the well-known characters of Lenny and George, migrant workers, lifelong companions, the one hugely strong and mentally deficient, the other small, wiry, and quick-minded. Hadella offers a complete analysis of these characters and their relationship, bringing to bear both Jungian and biblical mythology and comparing them with figures in other Steinbeck works.

Ask The Passengers


Astrid Jones desperately wants to confide in someone, but her mother's pushiness and her father's lack of interest tell her they're the last people she can trust. Instead, Astrid spends hours lying on the backyard picnic table watching airplanes fly overhead. She doesn't know the passengers inside, but they're the only people who won't judge her when she asks them her most personal questions . . . like what it means that she's falling in love with a girl. As her secret relationship becomes more intense and her friends demand answers, Astrid has nowhere left to turn. She can't share the truth with anyone except the people at thirty thousand feet, and they don't even know she's there. But little does Astrid know just how much even the tiniest connection will affect these strangers' lives--and her own--for the better. In this truly original portrayal of a girl struggling to break free of society's definitions, Printz Honor author A.S. King asks readers to question everything--and offers hope to those who will never stop seeking real love.
