Start growing! Boost your life and career with the best book summaries. Here goes an unusual and heart moving story of a friendship. We recommend this gripping tale to everyone!
It is impossible not to love it. At the moment, they got off a bus in the middle of nowhere, far away from California, where they should start working.
Thankfully, there is a pool and a clearing where they can camp, and they decide to do so, for the upcoming night. During their night together, they get into a conversation, from which it is clear that Lenny is dependent upon George, since he has a small mental disability , so he needs someone to protect him. At one point, George finds out that Lennie has all along been carrying a dead mouse with him.
He has this thing with soft things — he pets them, but accidentally kills them afterward. Lennie does not realize the mouse is dead and continues stroking him. George is mad and throws the mouse away with anger. He exclaims that everything would be easier if he were not responsible for Lennie. But, we do not believe him, since you can see that he cares for his friend deeply and that he is only afraid that he will get some disease from the dead animal.
Then, we find out that their friendship is also connected by the shared dream of buying land to farm and keeping rabbits on it.
Their night ends with George telling Lennie a story about how great life would be at their dream place. When the sun goes up, the men go to the nearby ranch, trying to find a job. It seems that Curley is jealous for a reason — his wife is of flirtatious nature, and as soon as Lennie and George stay alone in the house, she appears and tries to seduce them.
Lennie finds her attractive, but George immediately warns him to stay away from that woman. Soon, when the people return to the house, they also meet the mule driver called Slim. He is fascinated by the kind of friendship that George and Lennie share.
By saying that he creates a feeling of trust, and the next day George decides to come clean and tells him that he and Lennie are actually friends and not cousins like he lied to the boss. Then, he starts telling him about all those moments when Lennie got him in trouble.
They tell him that he can join, but if he keeps quiet about it. In the meantime, Curley is searching for his wife, and not knowing whom to blame, picks a fight with Lennie. Slim stands in his defense, saying that he should not try to get them fired unless he wants to become a laughingstock. The next day, most of the men decide to head for the local brothel.
Lennie is left behind. She leaves when the other men arrive, but finds him the next day again, when he is vulnerable because he accidentally killed his puppy, just as he usually does with animals. She tries to console him and tells him her dream of becoming a movie star, which never did and never will come true. But, she wishes she followed it, she tells him. In that conversation, Lennie tells her that he has a thing for soft things, so she offers him her hair, to touch it.
However, just as he sometimes does, he grabs it too tightly, and she screams. Trying to silence her, he unintentionally breaks her neck and kills her. Lennie is afraid of what he did, and he escapes back to that camping place that George pointed as a meeting spot if someone of them ever gets into trouble. The men in the house discover what has happened, and so does George, so he hurries to meet Lennie at the designated place. Surprisingly, George does not seem to be mad at him for doing such a bad thing.
Instead, he starts to tell him their story of the idyllic life they will lead once they get the farm they want to buy. As the sound of the approaching men gets louder, George takes out his gun and shoots his friend in his head. Only Slim, who seems to understand their kind of friendship , seems to know that what George did was not out of anger, but out of mercy. Like this summary?

Сьюзан закрыла дверь и подошла ближе. Голоса заглушал шум генераторов. Казалось, говорившие находились этажом ниже. Один голос был резкий, сердитый. Похоже, он принадлежал Филу Чатрукьяну.
Сьюзан надеялась, что Стратмору не придется долго возиться с отключением ТРАНСТЕКСТА. Шум и мелькающие огни в шифровалке делали ее похожей на стартовую площадку ракеты. Хейл зашевелился и в ответ на каждое завывание сирены начал моргать. Неожиданно для самой себя Сьюзан схватила беретту, и Хейл, открыв глаза, увидел ее, стоящую с револьвером в руке, нацеленным ему в низ живота.
