Other men think that Lennie is a big and strong man. They also think he’s a little bit strange, because he’s not aloud to speak for George. But they all like him very much  that is because he has a great personality   and he is the strongest one of them all .  But Curly does not like Lennie because Lennie is much bigger and much more stronger .

We can tell that George and Lennie have known each-other for a long time because George   knows that  if  he leaves Lennie he will get in trouble and sometimes George is mean to him, but he knows that Lennie needs him, so he has to stay  with him. George knows Lennie’s family, example : he knows  a lot about Lennie’s aunt and he remembers that her name is Clara , he also tells Lennie what to do all the time because   Lennie  can’t take care of himself.

14498837.jpg I Chose this book because after reading on the backside of the book I thought the book sounded interesting because  I like mystery books and the cover was interesting, the book is 89 pages long.

Main Characters : 

V.I Warshawski:  V.I Warshawski is an private investigator , she is tough and beautiful. She never gives up no matter how much people tries to stop her.  

 Boom Boom: Boom Boom is a former  ice -hockey star  and has a lots of friends and fiends  , he gets killed in a mysterious way. 

Clayton Phillips:Clayton Phillips was the   the vice president of Eudora Grain company he was the one who had found Boom-Boom’s body floating . He was in his early forties, with  brown hair and eyes. He drove a Green Alfa and lived on a house on the shore of Lake Michigan.

Plot Summary 

The books is a mystery book and it was set in Chicago, USA . The story takes place in year 2002. The main character is trying to find out how her cousin died. Since one of the main characters died in a mysterious way on a ship this story is about a lot of ships. The book was a crime book and it was very  exciting from the beginning to the end. The book ends with Vic finding out who killed her cousin Boom Boom .

My Final Toughts  about this book is that it is  easy to read and not so long but the  story  does not start   before in the middle of the book. I would recommend it to those who like mystery-books
