“Guys like us, is the loneliest guy in the world. They got no family. They don’t belong no place. They come to ranch and work up a stake.. They ain’t nothing to look ahead too”.

George went on, “With us it ain’t like that. We got a future. We got somebody to talk to that gives a damn about us. We don’t have to sit in no bar-room blown … But not us”

Lennie broke in “But not us! An’ why? Because . . . because I got to look after me and you got me to look after you”

We finished Mice of Men in English B HL. This book is about two men travelling together, finding a better job in order to get a better life. Their names are George and Lennie. George is a smart medium height man and Lenny is a gigantic man, powerful but he is not bright. This giant has a desire with any kind of furry animal that he can pinch and poke, especially to tend a rabbit.

I really like this book, it is so natural. It really shows how guys in the ranch work and what is happening there. Once, there is a character name Crooks, a nigger. He hasn’t been talking with all the ranch men because at their sight this man stinks and he just already become ignorant with this situation, he always isolated himself in the room, reading book – once he said “ A guy goes nuts if he ain’t got nobody”.

There is also an old man named Candy, who has a dream to get out from the ranch and have a stable life, at least he didn’t want to die alone. Candy has a really old dog, and it got shoot by one of the man in the ranch, because he thinks that his dog is just too old, there is no point at keeping it and it smells no good. There is also Curly and his wife who make the ranch just like a drama!

And yeah, back to my favorite character, Lennie! Every single thing he said just want to make me laugh, before I had watched the movie I have this imagination of a really ugly man full of saliva and stupid expression saying all this rabbit thingy to George. And this cool man, always reply him with a joke or a soft mock. George is pretty cool actually, because he took care of Lennie that has this mental problem but really good at working. And the ending, you will see the ending that you will never expect!

The language is also so light, it’s more slang, ranch men language. Instead of saying alright they said AWRIGHT, and I am GETTING USED TO SAY THAT! It just sounds so cool and easier. When you are trying to say A and L is a bit hard, you have to twist your lips.

I recommended you to read this book. Read it with a cup of cold tea, chocolate and make sure that no one will knock on your door and finding you are laughing like a carzy man!!!

I am trying to imitate how unbright Lennie is, but I always look bright, awright?

This is the movie - We watched it. And it is really cool - I love George and Slim =)
