The Outsiders

The OutsidersThe Hand At The Back Of My Neck Was Strong I M Drowning , I Thought The Socs Idea Of Having A Good Time Of Beating Up Greasers Like Ponyboy Ponyboy Knows What To Expect And Knows He Can Count On His Brothers And Friends Until The Night Someone Takes Things Too Far A Ground Breaking, Timeless Story From A Brilliant Writer. Sixteen years on the streets and you can learn a lot But all the wrong things, not the things you want to learn Sixteen years on the streets and you see a lot But all the wrong sights, not the sights you want to see So this was my first time reading The Outsiders and I really don t get why our teachers never forced us to read THIS book at school I m convinced my teenage me wouldn t only have approved but also would have enjoyed it immensely and I m kinda sad I had to discover this book so late Well, my school system obviously failed but that definitely didn t stop me from reading The Outsiders and I m very glad about it Soda threw one arm across my neck He mumbled something drowsily Listen, kiddo, when Darry hollers at you he doesn t mean nothin He s just got worries than somebody his age ought to I swear the moment I read about the interactions and relationships between those boys I was already hooked It felt like reading The Raven Boys all over again just a couple of years earlier, with other troubles and with a smaller book size XD I mean alone the fact that Ponyboy and Soda were sleeping together in a bed Their brotherly relationship was so nice to read Those brothers cared about each other and their friends and they would have done almost everything in order to help them 3 He was stroking my hair and I coul
the outsiders is a book about a group of youthful greasers living in oklahoma, and about their struggles to exist in a society that seems designed to dismiss them oklahoma is also the name of a popular musical.draw your own conclusions, or continue reading.see, i don t know from oklahoma in the sixties maybe that is a place where street toughs call their little brothers honey and baby and enjoy sunsets and stars and reading margaret mitchell aloud to one another and who recite robert frost in quiet moments maybe they do gymnastics before what they call skin fighting with the local rival boys maybe they cry and snuggle together in bed at night and hold each other through hard times.not that there is anything wrong with that.it just seems to be queer behavior for a gang of juvenile delinquents.what no, i didn t mean queer like that no, really, i just meant odd but, now that you mention it huh yeah, it does seem a little queer who knew that boys in leather could have a queer connotation and putting on tight t shirts that show off every muscle before they go to meet the other boys and making sure to fix their hair no, that s just what it says in the book.these are their modern day equivalentsmaybe this is just what happens when a teen girl writes this kind of material, tomboy or not i had seen the movie before, so i knew it was about pr
I have watched this movie over and over when I was younger and I still have it today and love it just as much I will admit I was in love with Dallas and had a crush on Sodapop but Dallas was my man I just can t believe it took me this many years to read the book And the book was so close to the movie it is almost unreal Maybe it was due to the fact that S.E Hinton was on set helping with the movie, I really don t know I just love that I can read a book and watch a movie and there not be that many things different Ok, there will be This is a remarkable story of people from different sides of the tracks The greasers the poor boys and some girls and the socs the rich kids This story is told from the greasers side which is awesome because I really don t care about the socs These boys all looked out for each other in the best ways they could Even if they were dirt poor, they did what they could for each other They had fun times getting in rumbles with the socs, most all of them loved to fight It was like getting set loose in a candy store Most of the beginning of the story revolves around Ponyboy and Johnny They are the best of friends and poor Johnny seems to have it bad no matter which way he turns His parents treat him bad, he sleeps outside most of the time and he got a very bad beating from the socs That s what they do, cruise around and find a greaser or two alone and gang up on them They damn near beat Johnny to death and al
Stay gold, Ponyboy Stay gold The Outsiders is a book about sensitive teenage boys who alternately get into gang fights, hug one another, and burst into tears They also spend time than you might expect ruminating on how the tightness of a t shirt might enhance the rippling musculature of a steely eyed fellow gang member this is where Stephanie Meyer got the idea for how to characterize Edward Even though they re always complimenting each other s hair and doing gymnastics, it s not gay at all because it takes place in 1965, shortly after James Dean had made crying and homoerotic tension cool.This is the kind of book that teachers like to assign to 7th graders or dumb high schoolers because it offers up a lot of THEMES about how EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT BUT STILL THE SAME, and teachers feel pretty safe giving a quiz on that because even the stupidest kid can figure it out, as every few paragraphs the narrator will just go ahead and state it outright, like this Even though we re Greasers and they re Socs, I guess in the end, we all look at the same sunset Sample essay question What did Ponyboy mean when he said that everyone looked at the same sunset And all you have to do to get it right is repeat the first half of the sentence As a narrator, Ponyboy kept reminding me of Holden Caulfied, if Holden was poor and actually managed to do anything interesting with his evenings But maybe that just has to do with the time period and the fact that they both say stuff like I was ju
Finally read this classic Glad to be in the know I can see why this has stood the test of time The story is easy to get into and keeps your attention throughout It seems like any person, young or old, rich or poor, popular or outcast could empathize or sympathize the themes Finally, the key climax points are done very well and hit you right in the feels Another thought I had wh
I m a little horrified at myself for not having this book up before now We had a discussion about it in class today, and I had to write this as soon it was over I wish there were stars to give The Outsiders, but five will have to do I love this book, and have loved it faithfully since I read it in sixth grade I must have read it a dozen times, and possibly I can quote long sections of the book I was obsessed, and to some degree still am It s not a good book by any literary standard, really Hinton uses one of those usually awful formulaic introductions that devotes a paragraph to each main character, explicitly describing their characteristics, history, and appearance When I think of it objectively, it s almost as bad as that awful, awful introductory second chapter of the Babysitters Club books that repeats in every installment I think the point is, though, that I just don t care In fact, I adore the writing even though it is obvious Maybe because I first read it when I was eleven and that sort of writing just seemed clear and to the point At any rate, I don t think it suffers too badly from the style, and if anything it benefits from the authenticity of a teenage author I can t even begin to say what
I loved The Outsiders when I read it as a teen and again when I read it just a few months ago S E Hinton created a believable and engaging cast of characters who struggle with conflict in and out of their gang and learn the meaning of friendship and family A very moving and enjoyable story I m just feeling a lot of emotions right now don t toUCH ME.I barely remembered anything about this book from reading it in high school but oh man it was definitely better than I remember Even though I ve never been in any of t
This was a great book but I was incredibly disappointed after I found out it wasn t about aliens. Find all of my reviews at Nature s first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold Her early leaf s a flower But only so an hour Then leaf subsides to leaf So Eden sank to grief, So dawn goes down to day.Nothing gold can stay Last week my son came home from school and informed me he had a homework assignment about the book his class is reading as a group Said child was forlorn that he would be unable to complete the assignment as the editions of the book were for class use only and were not permitted to be taken home Never you fear, I said to the young boy, for I have a LIBRARY CARD while actually freaking out that I might have to i change out of my comfy clothes, ii move my slothlike self off of the sofa after a hard day at work, or iii embarrass the child by refusing to change out of P.J pants whilst chauffeuring him to pick up a hard copy of the book I asked the small boy with much trepidation what book do you need and he answered The Outsiders I was filled with glee and assured my son I could easily help him with
