Introduction

Essay Question: The relationship between George and Lennie is unique; describe the ways in which it is unique. George and Lennie have a unique friendship because they always look out for each other and stick together no matter what. When they go for a job at the ranch, the boss noticed there was something odd. As George did all the talking Lennie just stood and watched. " You jus' stand there and don't say nothing, if he finds out what a crazy bastard you are, we wont get the job." So here George is telling Lennie that when the boss comes he is not to say a word or he will blow it all. The boss does not know of there past history of getting into trouble and being on the run, especially the trouble with Lennie and him being stupid. So this is what he finds strange that Lennie does not say anything to him. The boss also does not know about why they were here, and why the left Weed. George and Lennie came because they were on the run and they wanted to start a fresh life, with there own ranch, ...read more.

Middle

George says this to keep Lennie happy because this is what Lennie wants, so he knows by saying things like this Lennie will stay happy. George does not like to see Lennie upset or sad, if he says something bad he will try to rectify the situation " I was jus' fooling Lennie." This means that what's ever George has said it upset Lennie, and George felt sorry for hurting him so he tried to rectify the situation. From their dream of getting their own ranch they both keep talking about their dream, and George is always happy to tell Lennie about it to make him happy again. George cares about lennie he does not want people to think badly of him, so he helps him out in every situation, just to make him happy and make him look different to what he is really like. He proves this when he gets him out of the trouble Lennie caused in Weed, because they were on the run he wanted to help him so they went somewhere else to protect Lennie. ...read more.

Conclusion

George is not really fussed about having the animals, but he knows buy having them it will make Lennie happy, so he goes along with the idea. George also wants a house with flowers and thing to keep him occupied, he is always explaining this to lennie to keep him happy. When Crooks heard George and Lennie talking to each other in great detail about their dream (they both forgot that Crooks was there) and he heard it all. Crooks was very interested in their dream and wanted to have a steak in it, he then went on saying he knew somewhere where we could have all this. So that's why Crooks had an interest in their dream. At the end George finds all the fact of that when Lennie killed Curley's wife, and the fact the he has to look after him and always make him happy. He cared about Lennie so much he decided to put him out of his misery, he would have hated to see him inside a metal house, so George shot him in the back of the head when he was at his happiest. His reason for this was to cause him no pain and it would be quick and instant. ...read more.
