Of Mice and Men

1. The part of the movie, which I found most affective and nicely done, is the part when Lennie just realized the puppy was dead, and the way he reacts to that. Lennie freaks out and throws the puppy just as it says in the book. Then when Curley's wife comes in and sees the dead puppy she doesn't really care all she is happy bout is that she has someone to talk to.

In addition, because of George and Lennie he got new friends who were planning on having a future together. From the way the book ends, I hope that George and him still build a house together.

4. One of the actors the disappointed me was Slim. I thought that slim would be in more than what he was. The amount that you heard about him in the book didn't nearly show in the video. The role could have
