Streetwise George and his big, childlike friend Lennie are drifters, searching for work in the fields and valleys of California.

Gentle giant Lennie doesn't know his own strength, and when they find work at a ranch he gets into trouble with the boss's daughter-in-law. Trouble so bad that even his protector George may not be able to save him...

An unlikely pair, George and Lennie, two migrant workers in California during the Great Depression, grasp for their American Dream. Laborers in California's dusty vegetable fields, they hustle work when they can, living a hand-to-mouth existence. For George and Lennie have a plan: to own an acre of land and a shack they can call their own. When they land jobs on a ranch in the Salinas Valley, the fulfillment of their dream seems to be within their grasp. But even George cannot guard Lennie from the provocations, nor predict the consequences of Lennie's unswerving obedience to the things George taught him.

Book Summary:

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."

Book Summary:

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.
