George and Lennie are different from the rest of the ranchers because everyone else is lonely and by themselves but George and Lennie are always together. On page 15 and 16 George and Lennie are planning their future life with each other because they plan on being with each other forever.
This farm represents what George and Lennie want to own one day. Everything that they want to have and what they want and don't want to do when they get their own farm
The bunk house on the ranch was totally different than what they had expected, there was still things from the last worker that was there.
"The bunk house was a long, rectangular building. Inside, the walls were whitewashed and the floor unpainted. In three walls there were small, square windows, and in the fourth, a solid door with a wooden latch.
In the first chapter the setting was completely different they were in weed, walking to the ranch. They slept outside on beds of sand, made fire with sticks, ate beans, and drunk out of lakes.
This might suggest that they could have a better life working on the ranch rather than trying to live on their own.
George lied to the boss about his relationship with Lennie because he did not want the boss to know that Lennie was not so bright and it would not be suspicious that they we're traveling together.
"He's my ... cousin. I told his old lady I'd take care of him.He got kicked in the head by a horse when he was a kid"
Curley comes off as a small tough guy, a big talker toward Lennie and George. Curley picks a fight with Lennie because Lennie is a big man. Curley's presences says he is mean guy who picks on big guys, the type of guy who like to start problems.
George says to Lennie to stay away from curly, try to avoid hi. But when they get into a fight h tells Lennie to get em'. Only because he wants Lennie to show Curley not to mess with him anymore.
This becomes bad advice when they fight because Lennie crushes every bone in Curley's hand.
Candy and crooks are lonely because they both have no one at all. Candy dog is gone now that they have killed him. Crooks never has anyone to talk to and lives alone. Maybe if they leave the ranch and get a family
Crocks said "I was talking about myself. A guy sets alone out here at night, maybe reading books or thinking or stuff like that"
