This book can make someone cry. You learn to love these hoodlum characters struggling through many trials and you start to see that the things they go through every day are real and on a much larger scale than you personally want to believe. Alot of people say it's too violent but honestly that's the world we live in today and this book realistically shows you what goes on in other peoples' lives with a different perspective.
The outsiders is a thrilling book from the beginning to the end. With many suspencful situations and intense moments I would suggest this book should be read by older children (11-17). This book has a unique plot that has many twists and turns. Even though some scenes were violent this book was a fast, nice read.
The Outsiders is a book that will stand the test of time and always be read for generations to come. The main theme in this book is finding out where you fit in this crazy world of ours. I loved this book when I first read it for the first time I could see the theme of cliques starting up even in the 50's back then there were only 2 and those were the greasers and the socials. Now in schools there are several more and they are still growing. The other major theme in the book is bulling and still to this day it is a growing problem and I think this book toches on the subject with great tact. So in conclusion this book is a must read for every teenager.
First of all I want to say this book is amazing. It’s filled with action and suspense. Its about Ponyboy a young boy still trying to figure things out. He counts on his brothers Darry and Sodapop and his best friends Johnny and Two-Bit. But when it comes to the Socs a vicious rich kid gang looking to have a good time beating on “Greasers” Ponyboy now knows he can count on them for trouble. But one night someone takes things to far and now Ponyboy and Johnny’s world is turned upside down. This is a must read book for anybody, don’t think its just going to be another boring book because when you start reading it you wont want to put it back down.
