Of Mice and Men written by John Steinbeck is the story of two simple farm hands Lennie Small who incidentally really isnt very small and his better half George Milton on their quest to have a place of their own with plenty of furry bunnies of course Sound strange Read on to get clued in The book opens along the banks of the Salinas River a few miles south of Soledad California Everything is calm and beautiful and nature is alive The trees are green and fresh lizards are skittering along rabbits sit on the sand There are no people in the scene Suddenly the calm is broken Trouble is in the air Animals begin to scatter Two men have arrived on the scene and the environment seems troubled by their presence For a moment the scene becomes lifeless Then in walk George and LennieLennie a large retarded big man who has the mind of a little child and who loves to pet soft pretty things and George a little man who has assumed the responsibility of taking care of his simpleminded friend Lennie are walking on their way to apply for a harvesting job on a nearby farm The two had been traveling together for quite some time now which was very rare because most farm workers rarely have companions but George and Lennie have been together ever since Lennies Aunt had passed away and Lennie began to follow George around everywhere Instead of hurrying to the farm that night they stop by a stream to camp in the open and theyll arrive at work the next morning Why Well Lennie isnt very bright George didnt want him to blow the job opportunity The logic between waiting until morning until going to work was that way all the other farm hands would be out working thus theyd have a better chance of getting the job since Lennie wouldnt have to confront to many people
