The mental disabilities of Lennie, included with his overwhelming strength that he can’t control, makes you feel the most sympathy for him because he’s mostly unaware of the problems he causes and doesn’t comprehend the extreme consequences for his actions. Lennie’s mindset is that of a small child, innocent and curious, never out of anger or meanness, but the fact that he’s a man with beast-like strength is what causes the trouble for Lennie. Every bad action Lennie has committed has never came from a state of anger. There was never any meanness, nor anger in his intentions.
