In the novel, Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer, Cellarmans argues that Chris McCandless has been “bright and ignorant” (Callarman). I disagree with Cellarmans’ argument, because Chris McCandless wasn't bright and ignorant, he just wanted to be free in Alaska without his family. McCandless family where judgmental and ignorant towards him, although he did not let that get towards him as well as affecting him as much. It is often to say that McCandless wrote quotes every day because he wanted to say at the time what he felt. My whole life I have heard it said that always go for what you really like to do in your life, that's what was said in the book Into the wild.
Was George justified in killing Lennie my personal opinion is gorge was wrong and it wasn't right for him to kill him or so called euthanasia lennie was his best friend who hes lived with thru thick and thin thru the rough times and the good times and they weren't just friends but one almost completed the other to where they were whole they were to me almost life partners in a weird kind of way Some causes of why George killing Lennie could be considered wright are due to lennie strangling curley's wife he was already going to jail any way therefore he wasn't going to be free anymore anyway also he hurt everything he touched for example the puppy that Carlson gave him he choked it to tight curley's hand he squeezed it so tight it almost killed
In the story the Scarlet Ibis by James Hurst the narrator knows what he did was wrong. In the end, he realized that his own pride was the downfall for his own little brother. For wanting a normal little brother and not a crippled one. As stated on page 2 “ It was bad enough having an invalid brother, but having one who possibly was not all there was unbearable, so I began to make my plans to kill him by smothering him with a pillow”. Clearly, in this sentence, it shows that the narrator would rather have no brother at all than having one that is crippled.
In spite of the fact that George and Lennie’s friendship is not always easy for George to handle because of Lennie’s shortcomings, George is always ready to vouch for Lennie” (Rollins 21). For example, he assures both the boss and the other workers that Lennie is a good worker and therefore deserves the job “...he’s sure a hell of a good worker. Strong as a bull” (Steinbeck 24). Lastly, George considers himself and Lennie lucky to have each other and thinks that they are not as lonely as the other workers because they have each other. They also have their dream of having their own place together, a dream

These were just a small handful of them. Now you understand how hard it would be to be forced into killing your best friend, who you know has a mental disorder. You can sympathize with Curley’s Wife for knowing how much Curley abused her and knowing she isn’t a tramp. You can understand why Curley, the Boss’s own son, doesn’t have much power at all. Now think about this, what if you were in any of these character’s situations.
Jerry was sadly one of the three taken. Taking a boy and releasing someone who is of more threat to them is very unreasonable. Tim was very saddened and was angered at the British for it as he thought the British were people he could support at the time. He had lots of fun with Jerry fishing and climbing trees, but he expected to be friends with him for longer. Thinking that the war couldn’t also kill children, Tim decided to go against war, being
“With us it ain't like that. We got a future. We got somebody to talk to that gives a damn about us” (14). That quote was the hope of their future that George always told Lennie during the Great Depression to get through the rough time, not knowing the troubles they would have at the ranch. Two farm laborers or best friends, George and Lennie, have always travelled together to keep each other company, but their hope shined through the dull lives in their era causing them to be outcasts.
Moreover, such devotion to the family creates the basis for Santino 's subsequent death because his image is complete and does not have the appropriate dynamism. Santino only seeks to protect the family at any cost; in the end, it leads him to betrayal. Santino also dies because he loves his sister too much and can not accept that her husband, his former friend, is hurting her.
