Evidence that this book takes place during the time period is that they use bindles. Bindles are used by travelling people who don’t want to carry around to many belongings, since George and Lennie are looking for jobs and travelling around America they take bindles around with them for easy travelling. An example of them using bindles is when Steinbeck first introduces the characters ‘’…both carried tight blanket rolls slung over their shoulders.’’ Pg 2. They’ve got work tickets which they got from Murray and Ready’s George said on page 5, “The hell with what I says.

The other is that he gets frustrated easily with Lennie sometimes because Lennie has lots of trouble remembering things. “The hell with the rabbits. That’s all you ever can remember is them rabbits.

Two about Lennie are that he has a mental disability that causes him to act like a young child and forget stuff that George tells him. An example of him acting like a child is that he loves to touch soft things. “I could pet it with my thumb while we walked along.” Lennie said when George asked why he had a dead mouse in is pocket.

I don’t want no ketchup, I wouldn’t eat no ketchup ifit was right here beside me.” As you can see Lennie is trying to please George because he knew he got George upset.
The relationship between Lennie and George is similar to that of siblings because they don’t always get along but they’re bonded together. George won’t leave Lennie because he cares about Lennie and he knows that if Lennie was by himself he would die from loneliness or he would just go crazy. “An why? Because…because I got you to look after me, and you got me to look after you…” This quote shows that they’re together because they want to take care of each other. But really it’s George taking care of Lennie.
