George and Lennie are two men who work on a ranch . You can meet many complications. Crooks one of the farmers wanted to be like everyone else. Candy is a bad old swamper , the family is forced and Curley woman wants to be a movie star , but can not , so they all suffer and therefore sleep and lonely. George Milton is a lonely dreamer who has a friend named Lennie Small , who is very immature and George is an outcast among the peasants. The company does George Lennie feel alone and make a picture in your mind of a dream ranch. George thinks that they are ( Lennie and George ) the loneliest farmers because they family says George Lennie : " Guys like us , that work on ranches are the loneliest guys in the world.
