Salinas River, California, two migrant workers, Lennie and George are traveling to a ranch for work after previously leaving their other one after Lennie had accidentally grabbed a woman by the skirt.
we’re friends but not friends
Lennie and George are friends. However, because of Lennie's child like mentality, they are both often in trouble.
Bad first impression out of many
The boss's son Curley immediately dislikes Lennie and starts to pick on him. The boys make friends with the ranch hands especially Candy.
One more reason to not like Lennie
Lennie was given a puppy by Slim. In the barn, Curleys wife enters and they begin to talk. Without realizing, he grabs her hair, because he likes soft things. When she gets nervous and tells him you stop, he panics and breaks her neck.
" head to the river and hide in the bush"
A chance to get saved from the hell that is going to happen
Did he really do it for Lennie? Or because of what everyone thought of him
At the river, George shoots Lennie before Curley finds him. The men had covered it up.
