His life has almost no chance of improving. While in Crooks’ room, Candy and Lennie talk about their plan to buy a plot of land for them and George to live and farm on. As Crooks hears, he asks if he could come with them; he explains that he could help in the garden or any odd jobs. Before Candy or Lennie could answer, Curly’s wife enters the room looking for Curly. She begins talking to them and calls them “bindle-stiffs.” Eventually Crooks had enough of her and stood up for himself “You got no rights comin’ in a colored man’s room… get out quick” (88).
George was a small tough guy that always had to watch over Lennie. Once they got to Soledad, he stopped watching over him knowing that Lennie was capable of hurting someone without trying to. The book states, “Yeah?” said Crooks, “An’ where’s George now? In town in a whorehouse.” (Page 76) George had left Lennie alone at the ranch while he was out with the guys at a whorehouse. If George had payed more attention to Lennie and what he was up to, then Lennie probably wouldn’t have killed Curly’s wife.
There are many similarities and differences in Of Mice and Men when it comes to the book and movie. Let’s start from the beginning, when we first seen Curley’s wife in the movie, she had brown/black hair. In the book, it tells you that she has blonde hair when she first steps into scene. Later on in the movie, Lennie goes into Crook’s room when he’s in the barn with the puppies. Candy then shows up, then George.
Dreams is also linked in with the bunkhouse because this is where George and Lennie discuss their dream ‘of living on the fat of the land’ ‘ Lennie tending the rabbits’ but candy over hears their conversation and wants to be part of their dream. This adds to the tragedy of the story when Lennie dies, because of this now all three of them have shattered dreams. This could show how the people during the American dreams back in the 1930’s do have hopes and dreams but most of their dreams do not come
Both honest mistakes that he didn’t even know he made. The ignorance shown towards Lennie in the novel was due to the time period and the people’s lack of knowledge. People in the story like “The boss” just thought that Lennie wasn’t smart because he just didn’t talk much unless it was to his best friend George. There was ignorance in Raymond because his brother thought that he could remove Ray from his schedules at his home and take him with him. The Ignorance was that Ray needed those schedules or he will have a fit.
However, the girl just ignored them. And one day, her parents were involved in a car accident, and they died. When the girl found out her parents died, she felt very regretful because since she was a little girl, she start ignoring her parents, just stayed at home, never communicate with her parents about what she is thinking and difficulties, and now, she is very regret about not spending time to communicate with her parents. So, don’t ever isolated yourself with the others, otherwise, you will feel regret
However Candy does describe Crooks as a “nice fella”. From Candy we also learn that Crooks has his own room, separate from the bunkhouses. We later learn that he is not allowed into the bunkhouses because of the colour of his skin. We are told of an incident at Christmas where a “little skinner name of Smitty” takes after Crooks. The other men would not allow him to use his feet due to Crooks’ back but thought it perfectly fine to be fighting him.
A certain tree near the Radley house has a hole in which little presents are often left for them. The children don't know where these gifts are coming from, and when they go to leave a note for the mystery giver, they find that Boo's brother has plugged up the hole with cement. The next winter brings snow, and Miss Maudie's house catches on fire. While Jem and Scout watch the blaze from near the Radley house, someone puts a blanket around Scout. Not until she returns home and Atticus asks her where the blanket came from does she realize that Boo Radley must have put it around her while she was entranced by watching Miss Maudie, her
I think if a director of a movie is basing a movie on the book they should add a lot of the little details that lead up to the climax of the story that were present in the book. Although I understand that cannot happen because a movie has a certain time limit but a book can go on forever. I myself am not a movie person, I haven’t seen many movies at all, but for the first time I read a book and watch the movie based on that book. “Joe Gould’s Secret” is a story written by Joseph Mitchell, and a movie based on this book is also called “Joe Gould’s Secret” directed by Stanley Tucci. This was the first time I watched a movie based on a book
Bringing Fight Club out during that was not a good idea for some peoples, and “even some religious organizations tried to avoid it from being out in the theaters” (Reed). The movie Fight Club was meant mostly for a male audience. Describing the struggle men were going through during the emasculation era of the men after World War II. Instead of visiting bars, drinking a beer in front of the TV, or doing sports during their free time, man was becoming a serious shopper. Here, the narrator was addicted to buying furniture.
