Hinton Ä 5 Read Has an attitude longer than a limousine A greaser on the other hand always lives on the outside and needs to watch his back Ponyboy is a greaser and he's always been proud of it even willing to rumble against a gang of socs for the sake of his fellow greasers until one terrible night when his friend Johnny kills a soc The murder gets under Ponyboy's skin caus. Stay gold Ponyboy Stay goldThe 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 coolThis 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 uiz 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 uestion 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 sentenceAs 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 just about bawling my eyes out to tell you the truth every few pages except Ponyboy is doing it because his best friend knifed someone and then died of a broken back and being on fire and Holden is just sad because his roommate smells bad oh and I guess his brother got cancer and died pffffft I do think they would get along if they ever met and maybe make out a little bitI love the last few sentences of every chapter where SE Hinton trots out her corniest stuff Chapter 7 Socs were just guys after all Things were rough all over but it was better that way That way you could tell the other guy was human too Chapter 8 Thanks Ponyboy She smiled through her tears You dig okay She had green eyes I went on walking home slowly Oh and it doesn t come at the end of a chapter but Not even the rattling of the train could keep me awake and I went to sleep in a hoodlum s jacket with a gun lying next to my hand There s also the best deathbed speech in all of teen literature probably which goes like this INTERPRETS THEMATICALLY RELEVANT POEM DIESSo somehow I never read this in middle school and when I read it now I just end up giggling at half of the overwrought emotion which happened with Catcher in the Rye too but there I m going to assume Salinger was writing on multiple levels because he was a competent adult whereas The Outsiders was written by someone Holden s age But it s still a pretty awesome bookEDITED to add that this Penguin edition makes the book seem really classy which is nice but Jodi Picoult s introduction is kind of a joke She basically asked her 14 year old son to write a book report and uoted excerpts Facebook 30 Day Book Challenge Day 6 Favorite young adult book
