During the time of ¨ The Great Depression¨ the story bases around two main characters, Lennie and George. They take a train from Weed to a ranch Salinas California.
“Well, he seen this girl in a red dress. Dumb bastard like he is, he wants to touch ever’thing he likes. Just wants to feel it. So he reaches out to feel this red dress an’ the girl lets out a squawk, and that gets Lennie all mixed up, and he holds on ‘cause that’s the only thing he can think to do. By that time Lennie’s so scared all he can think to do is jus’ hold on. I socked him over the head with a fence picket to make him let go.
Ive had this dog so long... ever since he was a pup.
Lennie and George get dropped off about 10 miles away from the ranch. They would set up camp and sleep there till tomorrow. They share a can of beans for dinner. This scene really shows how much George cared for Lennie.
