What does Crooks suggest to Lennie? What almost happens? Why does Crooks do this?
1 Answer | Add Yours
Crooks suggests that something might happen to George, to prevent them from getting their farm (and dream...and the rabbits!).
Lennie starts to get mad, which is very dangerous given his strength.
Crooks does this because the isolation he suffers due to his race and the treatment given him for it from the men has made him bitter (the treatment and his spine). He's getting a little revenge.
