Essay/Term paper: Of mice and men
Essay, term paper, research paper: Cliff Notes
The book that I have read that has really stayed with me is
Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck. I really enjoyed
reading it which is unusual because I usualy don't enjoy
reading to much. There was something about George and
Lennie's friendship that really made me think. Seeing how
they were and how they shared life was really intresting.
George didn't have to bother with Lennie, he could have
abandoned him and gone on his own way. But he did not do
that, he stayed with Lennie watching over him almost like a
parent to a child. Even though Lennie always got Georege in
trouble, George never stoped loving him and always stood
by him. The friendship they shared went beyond what was
transparent they each shared a dream and both knew they
ment the world to each other. I felt that if these totaly
different people could get along and look out for each other,
why can't we get along with people who are differnt than us.
They made me realize that I could learn something from how
to treat people who are differnt than me. What I also liked
about it was the way they never stopped trying to reach their
dream. This made me think that if they could work hard for
there dream why can't I. It showed me that it does not
matter were you come from or what you do, it is okay to
dream and work as hard as you can to reach it . For all it
shows for friendship and loyalty it also shows how
sometimes you have to do things you never thought you
would do. For example in the end when George is forced to
shoot Lennie in the head you would never have thought he
would do that, but you can see that under the circumstances
he had no other choice. He only had two choices let the
other people get to him first and watch them torture Lennie
while he died a long horrible death or do it himself and get it
over quick were Lennie did not know what hit him. This is
also true in life, many times we are faced with tuff choices
and even though they may be the hardest you will have to go
through, you know that that is the only way. You come to
the realization that everything you thought you was about,
can all change with a blink of the eye.
