    ryacro's book review was featured in Of Mice and Men.
    Of Mice and Men: Summary Have you ever wondered what it would be like to work on a ranch during the Great Depression in the early 30’s? Then, Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck would be a good book for you. This book takes place in the Salinas Valley in California. The protagonists (or two main characters), are Lennie and George. They are two guys who wander around work on a ranch, then another, and another. This is what was called jumpers. Their dream is to own a farm for themselves. Sometimes the world isn't so nice though. One conflict is that Lennie is a special man, that has trouble remembering stuff, this is a problem that they face throughout the whole book. Another conflict is that Lennie is very strong, and not good with small animals. The turning point is when they find a farm that pays good money. They think by working there for a month, they can save up enough to get their land. Although things get heated between Lennie and the antagonist; Curley. This book is very fast paced and has a few swears, but overall, the message is that even the best intentions don’t always end well. Of Mice and Men is my favorite book and hope it will be yours too.

    My book is "Doctor Franklin's Island". If you like science fiction and survival stories, this book is for you. Three teenagers get in a plane crash next to an island, and they're the only survivors. The protagonist(s) are the teenagers; Arnie, Semirah and Miranda. They have to live off the land on an uncharted island for forty days until Arnie goes missing. One day they are swimming and find a secret tunnel that leads to a whole town inside it. They see people and head towards them. This book is a easy read, and there are about 245 pages. It's a very thrilling and action packed story and very well written. If you want to find out what happens next, read the book "Dr. Franklin's Island".
