Crooks is also one of the few African American characters in the book and faces racial discrimination and isolation. He lives in a separate room in the barn and is not allowed to socialize with the other workers. Despite his marginalized position, Crooks is intelligent and perceptive, offering valuable insights into the themes of the novel.

Throughout the novel "Of Mice and Men" by John Steinbeck, it is evident that Curley's wife is unhappy with her current situation and feels trapped in her marriage. She constantly seeks attention and companionship from the other men on the ranch, as she is lonely and dissatisfied with her life. Therefore, the correct answer is False.
