Sarah on Of Mice and Men, page 68

"Does this book end happy or sad?"

I'm not telling you.

"Why?"

Because you need to keep reading and find out for yourself. (pause) How do you think it ends?

Reluctantly: "Sad."

Yep. (pause) It sort of epitomizes the sad ending. It might be the original sad ending.

"I don't want to keep reading."

Why?

In a soft, sad voice: "Because I want them to get their little farm."
