She fins out the puppy died and tells him he could get another one. The next day, Sunday, Lennie returns to the barn to pet his puppy. The structure of this is a cycle; it goes back to the beginning.
Or, if English teachers everywhere are to be believed, everything. When George, Lennie and Candy club together to raise the money to buy the ranch George talks about.
Lennie was a real person. Each of the characters in the story is attracted to the plans of Lennie and George. Candy and his old dog joined George and Slim and soon Carlson entered, too.
But what it actually talks about is the friendship leaving aside all barriers, physical, mental and spiritual. A kind word and a sympathetic ear go a long way to help these downtrodden characters to face their difficulties.
Lennie 's last name is Small. Around this center revolve the lives of the other characters. But all share the despair of wanting to change the way they live and attain something better. Does George, or anyone else for that matter, have the right to kill Lennie, even though he was a murderer?
George shoots Lennie in the back of the head to spare him the agony of being killed by Curley, locked in a cage, or whatever else may have happened. It reads rather quickly, and it should take the average reader fewer than four hours to complete.

Chapter Two Lennie and George arrived at the ranch where an old man introduced them to their new home. This time, however, it was a very different, more complicated situation. Also, that Curley guy kept on messing with Lennie and they went at it.
The dim-witted Lennie needs George for survival. Back in the bunkhouse, George confesses to a sympathetic Slim that they left their previous job because Lennie was accused of attacking a girl. He is perhaps motivated to stay with Lennie by a sense of guilt, or responsibility, or pity, or a desire to not be alone himself.
Steinbeck also forebodes the death of Lennie by the simple act of predator eating prey. It talks of suffering, and the joy that is derived from giving a little joy to someone else.
But I was out of tears. He held his glare for a few moments, but eventually sighed defeatedly and dropped him. When Lennie mentions the plans he has with George about a farm with rabbits, Crooks thinks he is crazy.
Carlson and Candy both shared a disgusted look and went to help Slim, George and Lennie. Moreover, Crooks is subject to discrimination; for instance, when he is forced to sleep in a separate room from the other labourers, his marginalized status becomes obvious.
He has a friend and long time companion, his dog. What has touched me most is the pain George goes through in the end when he shot Lennie dead.
