The book Of Mice and Men is one that invokes thought in the reader Although the book is well written the movie does not come close to those same standards After reading the book then watchisng the movie I saw some major differences as well as some insignificant differences However there were a few that were very obvious One glaring difference that I saw involved the character simply known as Curleys wife One difference transpired during a scene that greatly influenced what I thought of her However in the movie this scene never took place This difference drastically altered my opinion of Curleys wife In the book Lennie Candy and Crooks are gathered in Crooks room After a while Curleys wife arrives and the situation became a bad one Crooks gathers the nerve to stand up to her and when he does she verbally cuts him down She tells Crooks that she could have him hanged and no one would object After she says this Crooks reduces himself to nothing 81 Soon afterward Curleys wife leaves the room leaving behind her the demoralized Crooks Lennie and Candy In the movie Lennie Candy and Crooks never met in his room A meeting between those three never took place throughout the entire movie This is one of the reasons that I do not believe that the movie was nearly as good as the book By eliminating this scene Curleys wifes destructive nature is not revealed Only those who have read the book would know this part of her personality The impact of the difference of the movie completely changed how I feel about Curleys wife While reading the book I saw her as an unfaithful wife and a troublemaker She was the only woman on the ranch so she immediatly was set apart from everyone else So every attempt at making conversation is gone because the men dont want trouble from her husband She has no one
