Books: Of Mice and Men, Wild, Out of Sight

January 4th, 2014

Of Mice and Men - John Steinbeck


7/10 Good book though more of a short story really. Not sure why the book is so well known. It would open discussion for a lot of topics, mental health, loneliness, aspirations, maybe a good reading group book or for kids in school.

Cheryl Strayed - Wild

Wild Cheryl Strayed


I’ve often wanted to hike the Appalachian Trail which is what made me read this book. It’s actually more a journey of self discovery for a trouble lady that lost her mum. But it is really funny and when I looked it up, it turns out the author was reunited with her half sister when her sister read the book!

Out of Sight - Elmore

6/10 Not a thought provoking book but an above average crime/romance page turner. Was actually turned into a hollywood film with Geroge Clooney, unfortunately near the end I realised that I had seen the film before so kind of spoiled the ending.
