Mice and men
The novel I have chosen is mice and men by john steinbech, mice and men was set during the great depression. The great depression was the worst economic downturn in the history of the industrilised world. It began after the stock market crashed October 1929 and lasted till 1939, which sent wallstreet into a panic wipping out millions of investors. The great depression didn’t just have a major affect on the big time investors of wallstreet but in the working class.

This would have given lennie the space he needed and george peace of mind that he wasnt going to have to pack up and move on in hurry.  The oxford dictionary describes as home as “perminant” and george and lennie certaninly didnt have a perminat place to live.

Some of us take a home for granted but we get a understanding of how desperate we too would be if we didnt have a home.
The next thing i learnt is that all humans need a friend. Georges life may have been easier without lennie always having to tag along but the two men had somthing non of the other ranch works had they had a  friend. Most of the other ranch workers went from job...
