Great alternate ending and great title- smart using a line fron the same poem Stienbeck got the title of "Of mice and Men"
Molly Rob chapter 1 . 11/19/2012
An alternate ending that is happier than the canon one :) the last moment is still bittersweet though, as though George knows they can never find this place Lennie dreams...

It seemed more hopeful this ending. I was so relieved that both are alive.

The ending of this and of the book are both sad. Maybe in yours he lives but it was still a lonely, sad life, believing in something that will never happen, just letting him think that may be kind for Lennie but what about George? So I think both are sad. Maybe it was kinder to let Lennie go. Maybe it was kinder to save him and keep lying. Either way it is hauntingly sad.
This was very well written and I think you captured the style of the book well.
