He walks in wanting to seem like a friend, not a business man. He also doesn’t tell her what the condition is. He grabs her interest and gets her genuinely concerned about it before he even tells her what it is. He even says that it is something they “are not prepared to give.” Which is definitely not true. Why would Campbell be in there if he wasn’t trying to persuade her?
One may say that George was being selfish and risking his most valuable friendship. True, Lennie was innocent and it was a mistake, but how many mistakes can he make before everything collapses? Furthermore, George cared for Lennie because he was like a little brother. George gave Lennie maximum protection and support. “George still stared at Curley’s wife.
Her husband pushes her out of the window yet he is still seen as sane and sensible. While the other characters in the novel are rooting for Ian, hoping he is not sentenced to jail, Ian “would not make of his wife whom he loved a drunken frenzied knife-wielding woman, to save his own skin” (American
In the beginning of the book when George and Lennie were walking down the sidewalk heading to their new job Lennie asked, “Where we goin’, George?” (4). After George heard that he began to get angry because he then knew Lennie had forgotten. George then said, “So you forgot that awready, did you?” (4).

When asked “have you ever touched her vaginal area?” he replied “uuuuuuh, no, I uh, think id remember it” which is a very indecisive answer and couldn’t provide a clear answer. Also Jim never told anyone about the interview, so when all things are added up he is clearly lying about the entire situation so he doesn’t get punished for his
But there are people out there who are inherently evil. A perfect example of this is Andy Evans from the book Speak. Andy rapes Melinda, and as seen in the following quote, has mistreated other girls at school as well.

In the end, George murdering his friend was well justified. 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
