Slim cares. He really does, so when he heard about Curley’s wife and Lennie he was upset.

Comment by skatergirl55

Slim went over to Curley’s wife to see if she was alright, he cared for her, even more than Curley did at the moment. Slim understood why George killed Lennie. He knew to consult George and knew that he killed him for Lennie’s best interest.This shows that Slim is very content, caring, and wise.

Slim was the first one to Curley’s wife when she was found and he was the first one to Lennie when they found him dead. This shows us that he cares about everyone.

Slim wasn’t surprised that Curley’s wife died because she had it coming but I thinkk he was surprised about Lennie’s death because George is always so protective. This shows that Slim studies people to get to know them.

SLim cares about curley’s wife’s death because he doesn’t want Lennie to die because he was going to live with them on the land they were going to buy

Slim reacts t Cirley’s wifes death by checking to see if he’s really dead. He was probably in shock. He also understands that it was hard for George to shoot Lennie, too. This tells us that he listens and he cares.

Slim reacts to Curleys wife’s death by being a little shocked and he tells Curley to stay at the farm wiht his wife but he dosent. He ralizes how hard it was for George to shoot Lennie so he cares about how Lennie died.

Comment by seanfl

SLim is the first one to check to see if Curley’s wife is alilve. He is also the one to comfort George. I think that Slim would be a really good role model for people, especially the farmhands.

Comment by curlygrace13

Slim is the first one to go up to Curley’s wife after they found her dead even before Curley. To Lennie’s death he was more sympathetic towards George then the rest of the guys were because he understood. This shows us that he is caring and that hes not heartless like the rest of the men in the book.

Comment by knwilliam

Slims reactions to both was shocking. He was sad when he seen Curly’s Wife dead. He was the first to approche her. Also he told George that killing Lennie was the only right thing he could do. This tells u that Slim is a caring man and liked Curly’s Wife more than just a little bit.

Comment by jktubman

Slims’ reaction to Curley’s wife, wasn’t surprising at all. He’s a very respectable person, so it’s no surprise he showed some sadness, no matter who she was, Same to Lennie, but he probably liked him a bit more than Curley’s wife.

Comment by proxballa

Slim was actually the first one to discover Curley’s wife in the barn and his first reaction to curley’s wife’s death was that he was kinda shocked becase he thought that she was sleeping. But then he checked for a palse but he didn’t feel one and said jesus christ. When he found out that Lennie died he was a little concerned and that tells me Slim is a Caring character.

Comment by jessicaxo

When he heard that she was dead he was the first one to see her besides Candy and George and he checkes her paulse. When George killed Lennie Slim was not happy and he comforted George. This showes that he cares alot about others.

Comment by swgama

he wasnt shocked but he new wat was going to happen

Comment by klumpy

Slim reacts very supprised and shocked when he sees Curley’s wife laying dead and he acts very caring because he is the first one to go over to her. When Lennie dies Slim tries to look at the bright side and tell George that he really did make the right decission for his best friend.

Comment by blueyedbabiix022

in the book slim went to curly’s wife first. after lennie died he and george went to get a drink. slim probably did this to help george get his mind off of lennie.
