"Look acrost the river, Lennie an' I'll tell you so you can almost see it."

A HARD DECISION

Did George do the right thing in the novella we just finished?

The situation the two protagonists faced was difficult, and the various courses of action all had obvious negatives; it was not a choice between good and bad options, but between "bad" and "worse." To allow Lennie to face "justice" and Curly? Or to take matters into his own hands?

It is a matter of opinion whether George finally made the right choice or not. George himself was not happy about it.

But what would you have done, if you were in his position? Explain your feelings in a 5 paragraph essay about George's actions at the end of the book, using several main points of reasoning to support your thinking. Mr. Geib will grade your essay not on whether you decide one way or the other, but on the quality of the reasoning and explaining about WHY one would decided one way or the other.
