Some of the Characters
George is an average sized, lean man. He has appointed himself as Lennie's care-taker for as long as he can remember. He is constantly moving around and finding different farming jobs for Lennie and him. As the novel goes on George begins to realize how much of a burden Lennie really is. He grows up and starts to realize that Lennie really isn't living much of a life. He knows Lennie can't handle life on his own and he won't be able to take care of a grown man by himself.
Lennie is a large, tall, broad man. He does, however, have a form of autism. He has a very poor memory and doesn't realize his own strength. He picks things to constantly obsess over like rabbits, as well. He constantly gets himself and George into trouble so they have to move on to the next town. Lennie doesn't change very much throughout the novel. With his autism his personality stays the same and he barely has as grasp on reality pretty much the whole time.
Candy is an elderly man still working as a farmhand. He only has one hand and in the beginning he has a very old dog. He sweeps and cleans up around the farm. When he meets Lennie and George he offers to give them money to help with their dream if they include him in it. Candy is an old man who has already grown a lot and doesn't have much more to learn. He didn't really change or grow throughout the novel at all.
