Welcome to my Of Mice and Men 20 events Slide Show Summary of the book... Summary

Two guys one named George and one named Lennie are feeling the impact of the depression. They travel the U.S looking for work on ranches. The problem with this duo is that Lennie has a mental disibility so he has the intelligence of a ten year old, making him react to things such as a puppy like a ten year old, where it's first thought would be to touch or pet it. There's no problem with that other than Lennie is so strong that he uaually ends up killing what he pets. They used to be working at a place called Weed, but Lennie and George got run out of that town because Lennie touched a girls dress and the girl though she was getting raped. When they get to the new ranch a number of horrible events take place. Curly's (the bosses son,) wife likes to seduce all the other men at the ranch and eventually Lennie is asked to touch her hair, but accidentlly snaps her neck and kills her. Which ultimately leads to George killing Lennie. Jason Event #1
