I haven’t read The Outsiders in a few years and I forgot how much I like the ending. I think it was very clever how the author ends the story with the beginning. It certainly makes the point of view make more sense. I also like the way she was able to make Pony and the other greasers seem more believable by having them speak in idiomatic speech (slang) – it makes the story feel more authentic. I am looking forward to seeing your reactions to the film. I have a version that has a different beginning and ending than the original version played in the movie theatres. The version that I have is much closer to the book and I like it when the movie is close to the book.
I think the story is about family should love each other no matter what people think or say. I like the theme of the gangs of the west and east side of town the socs were known for the money and they greasers are known for the bad things they do. I found that the big rumble caught my attention the most. My favourite character is Ponyboy I also hope that the movie is better than the book.
Today, we finished the book, and I think it is interesting that the book ends the way it starts. I liked hearing about all the fights in the story, and I didn't really like the boring sections in the book. I think the book was very interesting and I want to read more books by this author.
I like the outsiders because it had some action and interesting stuff. I really liked how they saved the kids from the burning church and risked there lives.My favourite characters were Johnny and Ponyboy because they are cool and not that bad of kids.
I normally don't like novel studies books but I loved "The Outsiders". It was a very well written book with a AMAZING and brilliant ending that is the finishing touch on a great book. I recommend this book because it gives you an outsiders view of the outsiders.
In chapter 11 the main point that I found interesting was how they showed Randy as being a Soc but that he wasn't like the other Socs. An example of that is the fact that he came to see Ponyboy while he was sick even though Pony was a greaser.
I think "The Outsiders" is an amazing & powerful novel and its name is on "My Favourite Books" list now. There are many messages that have a lot of meaning in this book . A message i think is important is that not everyone may be what they seem. "The Outsiders" also lets readers see what life is like in high school with different gangs. The ending of the novel ties the book together and makes me like "The Outsiders" that much more!
I think “The Outsiders” is a captivating book because I love how it ends. I have never read a book with that kind of ending before. Ponyboy’s theme story was based on the entire book. The book has some very meaningful parts. There is a famous expression “don’t judge a book by its cover”, but in “The Outsiders” its more like don’t judge a person by their class (a greaser or a soc.) I would definitely recommend “The Outsiders” for readers that like a different kind of story.
"The outsides" was a brilliant story with loads of excitement and surprise when you flipped the page. I was extremely alert when Pony found out that Randy was just another human, not a soc, not a greaser. Some parts had me thinking pretty hard about how lucky are we to live this way now, what if one of the students in my grade was in johnny's place in life. It is an emotional book, and one of my favorites now. The ending of the story ties the whole book together. Great job S.E Hinton
