After watching the movie numerous times I asked my local library to get it for me, i started to read it but I just cannot get into it.
I'm 14 and well-advanced in terms of reading, I am in the highest english class and scored a 'A' in my anaylsis of Curleys wife in of mice and men (I was one mark off a *)

I just can't get into, I'm a mature reader but the book drags a little, i don't know, I also find some of the speech and dialogue hard, have I bitten off more then I can chew?
