Read this in high school. Although I tend to dislike books I was assigned (see review of Lord of the Flies), this one still gets 4 stars. Maybe even deserves 5. Occasionally I still think about George shooting Lenny in the back of the head and am horrified. My English teacher had a black sense of humor and would do a Lenny impression, "Tell me about the rabbits George", followed by a mimed gunshot. Lenny mistakenly killing the girl also left a strong impression. What an awful book.
