When I read of Mice and Men, I think something. So I write about the Lennie and George`s relationship. Even if I do not have a book, I know about the story.
This story`s background is 1930s in U.S.A. In this time, the U.S.A`s economy became rapidity down. Many poor people became poorer, many rich people got poor. This story is about the poor farmer.
