Of Mice and Men Summary Lennie and George are the great friends on a journey to find work. They are unable to hold down jobs, because of Lennie’s disability for holding pretty objects, like puppies, mice, rabbits, and women. They soon find good fortune when they get work at a ranch near California. George fears how the boss will react to Lennie, so he insists that he’ll do the talking. George lies, saying that they are cousins and Lennie got kicked in the head by a horse during his childhood.
Ever since I was a little kid my grandfather would always attempt to lure me in with his wildlife cooking. Even though, my grandmother banned him from cooking wildlife inside he still managed to continue, by building his own kitchen in the backyard. Throughout my childhood, my grandfather would kill, clean, and eat many different animals such as raccoons, rabbits, frogs, and even possums. Most of the time I would give his wildlife cooking a try, like the time he made fried frog legs. While the frog legs were still sizzling in the pan you could see them jumping from the nerves inside.
And by the way, my name’s Austin, not animal,” the gopher responded. The plantation owner just laughed and took the gopher inside, muttering things like, “Just imagine how much people will pay to see a talking gopher.” Austin was used to cramped spaces, but he didn’t like being in them against his own will. Yet, here he was, trapped in a wooden box at the mercy of an oppressive plantation owner. However, the gopher didn’t plan on being in there for long. After a full lunch, Thomas arose to check on his new money-making opportunity, the talking gopher.
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.
When George takes a dead mouse from Lennie, Lennie remarks that a lady used to give him mice to pet; and George must remind him that the “lady” is Lennie’s own Aunt Clara. George and Lennie seem like an entirely contrasting pair at first glance, but further observation yields several noteworthy similarities. Most notably, they are both driven by the same ultimate aspiration in life—to live independently on their own land. Constantly, Lennie asks George whether he will still be allowed to tend to the rabbits on their future farm despite his missteps. After Lennie horrifyingly disfigures Curley’s hand, his first and only question to George is about the rabbits, not about the egregious act he has just committed.
He was a danger to himself and everyone around. I’m going to miss his company believe it or not, and our friendship, I‘m going to miss that the most. Always having to remind him of everything and tell him about the little place we were going to buy with Candy. And listening to him talk about animals. He loved animals, he loved petting soft things too, and he was always talking about how we were going to have chickens and rabbits and how he was going to care for them, and how he went after that dead mouse

I want to wish my dog nothing but the best in her future endeavours…but it’s tough when your cuddle buddy has left you to eat her dust," said Christine Park, as shared by Bored Panda. Christine created an Instagram account for Tonkey, a fluffy bearcoat shar-pei that looks like a stuffed toy, eight weeks ago. She only aims to get some friends but the adorable dog is the one getting all the attention. "I like my dog and all, but Tonkey’s rise to fame has got me wondering what she’s got, that I don’t. 8
They fantasize owning an acre of land, with a small house, a vegetable patch, some animals, and most importantly (to Lennie) rabbits. The duo venture out in the Salinas River Valley in search of a job to raise money to buy their land. Lennie is of enormous size, but he is mentally retarded and doesn’t know his strength. This results in George is constantly fixing his mistakes to ensure that Lennie isn’t arrested and admitted into the dreaded insane asylum. Lennie’s extreme strength causes him to accidentally harm and kill many living things that he interacts with, such as mice, dogs, and even Curley’s wife.
This concept is shown in multiple novels. Specifically In John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men the men are united by their shared dreams of freedom, security, and of course to tend the rabbits. Being unified transforms into a theme in this story: everyone has dreams but dreams don’t always come true. To George, his dream of having his own ranch means to him that he will have some sense freedom that he has lost out on while taking care of Lennie. While talking to Candy, George says “S 'pose they was a carnival or a circus come to town, or a ball game, or any damn thing.” Old Candy nodded in appreciation of the idea.
Mother defended the Airedale because she loved him. Mother blamed everyone else but she wouldn 't ever blame the Airedale for biting people. Any time that the Airedale bit people, mother would send a basket of candy to the people that the Airedale bit. Mother always said that no matter what that person did to make the Airedale mad, he would not hold a grudge and he has a quick temper. Mother would defend the Airedale because she found him and took him home with her so she could take care of him, and she ended up loving the Airedale.
