I assume you didn't read it and just used Spark Notes otherwise you wouldn't be asking.

Remember those times when we all had something better to be doing, but didn't do it? Those were good times. Gooood times

Read the book.

Make sure you know why George was the first to find Lenny, what they did in their previous town that caused them to leave, and why George decided to shoot Lenny

Lenny wants to tend the rabbits. You'll pass if you remember that.

Anyone but Foman. He smells like cheese.

The turning point of the novel is the spaceship scene, where Emperor Xarg is threatening to destroy the universe. At that moment, Captain George Milton makes the brave decision to sacrifice his own life to safe that of humanity. When he grabs the nuke and throws himself into Xarg's black hole, he knows he is dooming himself to an agonizing death. But he emerges unscathed on the other side of the black hole, three days later.

It's a metaphor for the life of a certain biblical character. You can thank me for your A+ later.

Damn straight

Significance lies in Crooks's book 'The Californian Civil Code of 1905'.

I find you rather shallow and pedantic.

Main themes are of loneliness and dreams.

Steinbeck is showing how the american dream is not as it seems.

Shows how all areas of society are affected by the depression:
George: the working-class
Lennie: the Mentally handicapped
Candy: the Elderly
Crooks: the ethnic minorities
Curley's wife: women

I could give a list, but meh.

Just remember there is a lot of stuff to do with the character's dreams, and how they are crushed. Lots of foreshadowing to.

Studies show that men think about sex every 7 seconds. I do my best to eat hotdogs in under 6, just so things don't get weird.

Its important to understand why the Mice won. They had advanced cybernetics and Mecha. The men were only fighting with Uzi's and hand grenades. The balance here is important as it symbolizes Master Chief's battle against the Metroids. Now, in Chapter 7, the WH40K Space Marine Punches Marcus Fenix. This seemed a bit random, but the background character of Captain Price is meant to be a symbol of futility in revenge. Don't forget to show Mario doing a Fus Do Rah shout against Dr Wiley. That was a key moment, a watershed if you will for the whole struggle.

Hope this helps!

"There's a very fine line between not listening, and not caring. I'd like to think that I walk that line every day."

It's not a difficult read, nor a long one. You could probably do it in a couple of hours.

the story is about why the retardards shouldn't have pets or girlfriends and should only be allowed to work.

curley is the hero of that books, he basically punched disabled rights in the face.

Language filter?

I call it a substitution of letters to find the appropriate expression.

Lady Astor: "If I were your wife I'd put poison in your coffee."

Watch the film, its pretty good (will hopefully support what you already know) and what type? GCSE or an A-Level exam?

Also do what Foman mentions, this free writing and you will ace your test - potentially blow the socks of the wrinkly old moderator thats going to read your test, you will have essentially ruined her self integrity and destroyed her perceptions of the english language
