From the Nobel Prize-winning author of The Grapes of Wrath and East of Eden , this classic story of an unlikely pair, two migrant workers in California during the Great Depression who grasp for their American Dream, profoundly touches readers and audiences alike. George and his simple-minded friend Lenny dream, as drifters will, of a place to call their own—a couple of acres and a few pigs, chickens, and rabbits back in Hill Country where land is cheap. The four stars are all for Gary Sinise's superb reading of the book. The one missing is for the horrible decision the producer made to put the piercing harmonica music at the beginning and end. I've tried multiple times to downloaded and I go to my music press more then press audiobooks and it isnt there. This is an American classic, and anyone who has been put off with it after reading only one chapter for a school project is probably not qualified to be reading it! If you consider yourself an avid reader who can appreciate Steinbeck's use of rich imagery, symbolism, and dialogue, then you will enjoy this novella.

Toggle navigation. This chapter begins with George and Lennie being shown around the bunk house by an old swamper named Candy. Candy cleans up around the ranch despite the fact that he's missing a hand. Candy tells the men a little about the boss and how he mistreats the stable buck when he's angry since the stable buck is African American. The stable buck has his own room in the barn, and he has a crooked back. The boss then enters the room and begins interviewing George and Lennie. He's angry that the men didn't arrive yesterday when they were supposed to, so George tells him that the bus driver dropped them off too far away.
