In the book Of Mice And Men, compared to the movie was a little different but also very similar. Something I was glad to see stay in the movie as well as the book was, the dream farm. One of my favorite parts from Of Mice And Men, was when Lennie got to pick out his puppy from Slim. A very sad part of the book and movie is when Lennie kills Curley 's wife, after that you just kind of know something bad is about to happen. Then, it happens and George finds Lennie and instead of the guys finding him and torturing him George makes a bold move and shoots Lennie. The way George kills Lennie is a nice gesture, he makes him happy and doesn’t let him know that he is about to die. The movie and book also had some differences, like in the beginning of
George made the right decision in killing Lennie, although it was likely the hardest thing he has ever had to do, he realized that Lennie cannot take care of himself and will continue killing innocent animals/people if left alone, George himself is unfit to care for Lennie, he is not able to supervise him all the time and give him the help he needs. If Lennie was to be set free and do as he said “Well, I could. I could go off in the hills there. Some place I’d find a cave.”
2. George knows that it would only be right for him to be the one to take Lennie's life. One could justify that George has been taking care of Lennie for a very long time and he wishes to be the one who took care of him up until the end. 3. One last reason why George could be considered "right" in killing
George was a good worker, but Lennie was an amazing worker with a tenacious work ethic and stamina. Lennie had incredible strength, but sometimes he did not understand just how massive he was. Many times throughout the book Lennie is caught hurting people or killing animals on accident. The biggest reason Lennie should not have been killed was because he was a major asset in the working force. That means he could have helped continue to bring in money towards the farm they dreamed about operating someday.
We have read two books this year: ´Of mice and men´ and ´The curious incident of the dog in the night-time’. The books differ a lot, however they also share some similarities. ´ Of mice and men´ is about two men, named Lennie and George, who live in the time of the Great depression. They are looking for a job, but this isn’t easy because Lennie is mentally disabled so George needs to look after him the whole time.
After all the anger that George has shown towards Lennie, he utters these words now so Lennie can die with a sense of peace. George does not want to pull the trigger, but he knows that the further consequences of Lennie’s actions will only worsen. To save Lennie from Curley’s wrath, possible imprisonment, and perhaps years of suffering, George takes Lennie’s
Of Mice and Men is about Lennie and George in which Lennie decided to feel a girls skirt because he liked the type of material. So George went with Lennie to escape and not get in trouble and decided to go to a bunkhouse where they work and are provided with food and a place to live.

Of Mice and Men; A Literary Analysis “I got you to look after me, and you got me to look after you, and that 's why,” says George in the book Of Mice and Men. John Steinbeck wrote this book about two boys who took care of each other mentally and physically throughout. They endure many journeys together and are able to suffice over very little. They show the strength in friendships in many dissimilar ways and make diligent decisions that some may never be able to make. Of Mice and Men is not only about two friends and their journey together, but as well as giving one a deeper meaning of the book, such as showing the nature of their dreams, the characters as archetypes, and if the killing of Lennie is justified in the end.
Lennie with his simple mind, always gets into trouble. This time, Lennie gets himself in a bind once again, that George can’t save him from. George decision to kill Lennie in the story, was due to his responsibility, sympathy, and love for Lennie. George’s decision to kill Lennie was out of sympathy for him.
Even though shooting Lennie wasn’t planned I think George knew it was going to have to be done sometime in the future because, Lennie ruins all of George 's chances of keeping a steady job. With all of George
Although, Lennie’s actions probably weren’t his fault, with him not being able to learn from his actions and remember that his own strength is too much for him that he became a threat. George, pained to do it, knew what was best for Lennie and other people/animals, and had to end his life. Overall, even though George had to make some pretty drastic decisions and someone’s life got taken away, it was all for the best and nothing bad will no longer happen and who knows, maybe George will get to live his
George killing Lennie is “Mercy Killing”. George had to kill Lennie or else he would have killed more people without even thinking. George did not want to do this and did it as peacefully as possible but he felt he had to do this action. Although George loved Lennie, it was hard for him to keep taking care of him. When they went to new farms to work George would have to keep his eye on Lennie at all times and he was scared to leave him alone while he went in town because he did not know what he would do and if Lennie would them both fired or even killed.
"Of mice and men" a novel by John Steinbeck which will be discussed in this paragraph evaluating two specific points, one of them is that George did the right thing by killing Lennie for many circumstances to be discussed later; and the second is about George was not supposed to kill Lennie under any reason because the life of every human being must be respected by every person in the world. George, seeing that Lennie did not have the ability to live on his own, always got into very serious problems and seeing that neither of them could get ahead because of those motives as you can see in the next quote: "I done a real bad thing," he said. "I shouldn 't of did that. George 'll be mad.
In the movie George finds Lennie just walking down the river. He couldn’t find the “spot”, George told him to go. While in the book George finds Lennie in the brush. He sits there next to Lennis and tells him that he’s not mad at him, for what he did. George actually has a heart to heart conversation with Lennie, where it looks like he cares about Lennie.
