Other than that, it was not easy for George to shoot Lennie but he had to do it because if he didn’t he knew that Curley would and in a more painful way. Therefore George had to make the sacrifice and be the one who shoots Lennie himself so that Lennie wouldn’t have to suffer. Without Lennie, George also faces other problems on his own such as loneliness with no one to care for and no one to care for himself. Steinbeck’s characterization plays an important role in showing how Lennie himself brought him to his own death. On page 2 of the novel, Steinbeck gives a description of Lennie: “Behind
