Chapter Two Summary

In chapter two, we meet the rest of the characters. We learn who the other ranch workers are and we kind of learn what kind of person they are. Candy comes in and we meet his dog. Curley, Slim, Curley’s wife, Carlson, and the boss all come in at a different time and introduce themselves. George tells Lennie to not speak when their boss comes in so that he doesn’t think that Lennie can’t work. When Curley comes in, he tries to pick on Lennie and start a fight because he likes to fight bigger men. George tells Lennie to stay away from both Curley and his wife so that he doesn’t get into trouble. Carlson suggests to Candy that they put his dog down and just gets puppy from Slim and raise it.
