Great friends are hard to find and impossible to leave. Of Mice and Men is a book written by John Steinbeck. The book is about two men, George Milton and Lennie Small. George is a thin, small man average man and Lennie is a big, broad man with mild disabilities. They go on odd adventures and experience weird things together. Friendship is when you can connect with someone and be loyal to that one person. Lennie and George relationship is quite different from any man at the time. The author describes their relationship by a protective relationship, love-hate relationship, and loyalty.
George will always be there for Lennie and Lennie will be there for George for no matter the situation. Throughout the story George tries his hardest to protect. They just arrived the little pound and tree area where they set up camp for the night. George and Lennie are sitting around the fire and talking about things. And George says “if you happen to get in trouble, hide in the brush” (?). George knows he can’t keep Lennie from doing everything dumb he does. So he wants Lennie to have a place so he could feel safe when Lennie does something g bad. George wants Lennie to be safe. George really does care for Lennie he may show it in a weird way but he just wants Lennie to be safe. George would do anything for Lennie. When they are just getting settled in at the ranch, Curely starts trouble for no reason. As usual George steps in to try in protect Lennie. George Said “he don’t have to take after Lennie. Lennie didn’t do nothing to him” (29). George says this because he knows that if Curely keeps talking Lennie will get mad and will mess everything up for them. George has to protect Lennie from every little thing since Lennie is a little special and people with special needs weren’t really understood and were mistreated for the wrong reason. People would take advantage of Lennie if George didn’t try and protect Lennie from every little thing.
