    I suggest you read the book?!
    You're looking at Lennie and George in the chapter. Think about the first impression you get of the two and how this links into the themes.
    For example, Lennie and George are friend, this is the basis of the friendship theme.
    George and Lennie discuss their plans for a little place to live in, dreams themes.
    They open a can of beans and have only that to eat, and Lennie laps up water like an animal when they reach the river.
    Showing hardship of their lack of food.
    The beauty of having this book for your GCSE exam is that any section of the book can be related to any theme.
    You should pick one or two themes that you think the chapter most relates to, friendship, dreams, power, hardship.
    English is easy, make up anything that sounds correct and you have your self an A*.

    He intoduces the theme of violence through George's short description of what Lennie did in Weed. In the short description Steinbeck uses Lennie's short memory as a device tool to hint to the reader the violent animal- like side of Lennie's nature.
