Our main Characters:
Lennie and George:
Lennie suffers from a mild mental disorder. He believes that he is going to move into a house with his friend George and that he is going to help raise rabbits of every color and kind. He also believes that George is his cousin. /// George is the one who takes care of Lennie now. George pretends to be Lennie's cousin and promises him that they will move into a little house and live together and raise rabbits of all kinds, colors and sizes.
Curley is the most self centered one on the whole ranch. He wears high heeled cowboy boots just so that he can look better than everyone. He thinks hes better than everyone just because he is the bosses son.
Curley's wife is obviously the one that is married to Curley. Even though they are married Curley's wife feels as if he ignores her and doesnt even care about her. She is the one that starts a bunch of problems between the guys and Curley because she goes around and talks to every guy on the ranch. When Lennie is in the barn with his dead dog, she walks in and as their talking she tells him that he can feel her hair as long as he doesn't mess it up and he messes it up a little bit and in the midst of the situation she screams and he covers her mouth so she doesn't scream and he ends up killing her.
