Book Traveling Thursday is a weekly event held over on Goodreads by Danielle and Catia.
This week’s topic is Because Mental Health matters! Choose a book that deals with mental health.
The compelling story of two outsiders striving to find their place in an unforgiving world. Drifters in search of work, George and his simple-minded friend Lennie have nothing in the world except each other and a dream–a dream that one day they will have some land of their own. Eventually they find work on a ranch in California’s Salinas Valley, but their hopes are doomed as Lennie, struggling against extreme cruelty, misunderstanding and feelings of jealousy, becomes a victim of his own strength.
Current cover in my country (UK). This is the Penguin Red Classic edition and I really like this one, it might actually be my favourite.
