Comparing “Of Mice and Men” Book and Movie
Many times novels end up having a movie version to them, and these two are always quite similar to each other. The book always intends to have way more details than the movie does due to the time limit for movies. Authors are always forced to be more detailed because they want the reader to be able to picture the story in their head, while in movies that is already being done for the producer because it is a visual story.

The movie "Of Mice and Men" had many differences but in the end they both offered the same morals and they both had the same story line. The differences were on some scenes like when Lennie and Crooks were talking in Crook’s room, The scene that George throws Lennie’s mouse and comforts him later, and the last scene that George had to shoot his friend Lennie in the head so he would not be hurt by Curly, and the other characters that were helping Curly find Lennie. What made a big difference was that while Crooks and Lennie talked in the room Candy was never a part of that conversation in the movie, but in the book Crooks talked to Candy and was convinced of the plan to move to their own ranch and even wanted to be part of the plan and join George, Lennie, and Candy. This was considered a big difference because this way Crooks would not be informed of what was going on with them moving to their own ranch, and if the person only watched the movie they would not be able to know that Crooks would be coming with them to the ranch.
The second major difference is that in the book when Lennie and George are walking to their new job and George throws Lennies mouse, Lennie starts crying and George conforts him by telling him the story of the ranch but in the movie George comforts him by promising Lennie that he would give him a puppy...
