I think Slim is a big guy who is respected by how he has treated other people.He is basicly the leader of the team on the ranch.He treats people with respect and he deserves what he gets back.

Comment by apeters

Slim is the leader of the working men at the ranch. He shows that by how he walks. He doesn’t need to be rich and wear the boots to show that he’s in control. He treats everyone with the respect that they deserve just as long as they do the same.

Slim is a nice kind guy he is respected, and would like George and Lennie on his team. He also respects others because that is how he wants to be treated

Slim is a respectable guy. The kind that someone would look up to. He seems like one of the few good guys on the ranch.

Slim is the unsung leader of the ranchers. He is respected and other ranchers look up to him. I think that Slim impresses people without really trying.

i think that slim thinks he is so great but he really isn’t. He is the boss’s son so he think he has special rights.

Comment by fraglerock

Slim is the person who keeps everything under control at the ranch. He is also one of the only people who welcomed Lennie and George to the ranch (besides Candy) and talked to them in a professional manner.

Comment by ice165

Slim is a nice man who has earned a lot of respect from working on the ranch all those years. He is a Jerk-Line Skinner, or a mule driver as “mudisfun10” pointed out. Overall, a decent guy.

Slim is introduced to us as a skinner on the ranch. Slim is one of the nicer guys the guys have meet. Slim talks to the guys and welcomes them to the ranch, and some what inform them of what it’s like there. I think people on the ranch respect Slim.

Comment by kkbruce

Slim acts like he is the boss of everything but he has no authority.

Comment by derrty

Miss Fowler, a Jerk-Line Skinner is a Mule driver. Slim does that and he is a nice guy on the ranch. He’s very nice to George and Lennie, and gave Lennie a pup since his dog had puppies. I did think it was wrong of him to drown off 4 pups.

Comment by rachypachy
