The reason I think so is because spiritual, mental, and emotional aspects are much more significant than physical aspects. The story Of Mice and Men took place during the Great Depression, where close friendship between people was rare and unusual, and George benefited because he had a companion that traveled with him and always stayed with him. Lennie told George that if he is causing too much trouble for George, he can live in a cave alone, but George did not accept. When George shot Lennie (for Lennie’s benefit) and the friendship ended, George became extremely lonesome and he desired a friend like Lennie. Back to The Mighty, Kevin and Max realized that they had something in common.
George stated at the beginning that Lennie always gets into troubles. “You do bad things and I go to get you out,” (Steinbeck, 11). When Lennie held Curley's wife tighter and tighter we all knew whats going to happen because first he killed a mouse and he thought he will not do the same thing with a puppy. John Steinbeck used his creativity use of foreshadowing to make the book more enjoyable to read. Lennie seems to be very strong, but in reality he is the weakest character in the novel “Of Mice And Men”, because of the lack of his mentality ability and the missing characteristic to think for himself and make his own decisions.
Admittedly, as sympathetic and understanding as readers are for Lennie, Lennie is still a danger to other lives. In many instances in the book, Lennie accidentally kills many lives but does not realize the significance of his mistakes. Lennie is a man with the mind of a child with an unequal match of formidable strength, hence committing murder without meaning to do so. In the scene when Lennie kills Curley’s wife, he has the same slightly panicked reaction as when he killed the rat and puppy earlier in the book. Readers then realize that Lennie doesn’t understand the difference between killing an animal and murdering a human, therefore putting other lives at risk.
