Of Mice and Men - John Steinbeck Well, I knew nothing about the book before I started reading it. Most importantly, I didn't know how it was going to end... but I could recognize all the hints the daydreaming and the mice, and the girl, and the gun early on, and them not liking the place but staying anyway, and the old dog, and the puppy . The tension was there and I could catch myself speculating on the possible disasters... Being a realistic person (that's how we pessimists like to call ourselves), and being aware that I am one, I used that as an excuse to rise hope that maybe it was going to have a happy end after all... Well no, it wasn't that happy ... It was a surprise... and a relief... relief was probably not what I was supposed to feel?...hmmm
