The main dream in of mice and men is land it is at once wanted by all and achieved by none as crooks puts it Just like heaven ever body wants a little piece of lan I read plenty of books out here Nobody ever gets to heaven and nobody ever gets no land During the book it is frustratingly close George Lennie and Candy seem to come so close to getting their land that they want they nearly send the money out but they never get there they never quite make it The book takes place in the dusty slowness and confines of the ranch a place stuffed full of small town men destined to become nothing no children no future just drifting travelling around working for their pay and then going and spending it but it the back of their minds they are always thinking that they would like to have some land to settle down and to make themselves a real life with their own house not some dusty bunkhouse that is whitewashed and unpainted in which other men leave behind bits and bobs that they forget They want a place of their own a place that they wont ever have to leave again a place in which they own the food that they pick that they labour and sweat on Even Lennie whose childlike simple mind fails to grasp much share this dream he wants to tend the rabbits he wants to be responsible for something and it is the one thing that drives his life in the barn or when Curleys wife tries to talk to him he responds with George wont let me tend the rabbits it is his main fear that he wont be able to tend the rabbits He knows the story that George tells off by heart as is demonstrated in the scene at the start when waiting for their supper to cook on the fire
