I believe that this book would be great for readers that like to read about real life problems, prejudice, and social class discrimination. These readers will be surprised by a little of everything mentioned plus a small part about heroism. Rated 5 out of 5 by Cassidy from Great read for everyone What a classic! It's an easy read that is diverse and eloquently delivers lessons about morality and friendship that everyone can benefit from. People of all age groups can learn from reading these pages. It is filled with action and drama, while sharing important values such as trust, friendship, love, and many others.
The book has only 12 Chapters making it easy and fun to read. I think that teenagers and young adults will enjoy this book since they are the age group mostly focused in the book and that they can somehow relate to it. It also shed light on bigger issues like social class and current ones such as prejudice, violence, poverty, and many more. It always guves a sense of thrill because the characters are always put into difficult situations which they need to overcome and it results in the character's change. I recommend this book to those who love adventure and getting to know more about the characters, also learning about the importance of friendship.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Benjamin from A lesson that everyone needs to hear The book teaches a lesson that makes us question what we think about loyalty. Nowadays, we are in a society full of conflicts. Often what happens in our world is that we alienate others who think or see differently than us, and we need to be able to work together despite our differences.
The Outsiders is about two rival gangs, the Greasers, and the Socs. We get introduced to the story by the protagonist, Ponyboy, and get put into the place of the Greasers. Both sides watch the same sunset. There were many strengths with the main plotline, and the message that it tries to get you to understand.
The storyline is very enticing, and I found it hard to put it down. The conflicts in the book lead to some exciting plot points, and the story still manages to have a slowed-down feel sometimes, while keeping up the fast pace feel of the main action. The Outsiders is a good story for all ages, for anyone who enjoys reading adventurous stories.
The story can have a fast pace feel at time, but other times may slow down to help you think about the meaning. The Outsiders is an enticing novel with an adventurous plotline, relatable characters, and exciting feel. The book changes how we think about loyalty, and ends in a satisfying way, so you walk away with a good lesson, and the great feeling of finishing a good story.
I rate The Outsiders 5 out of 5 stars. Rated 5 out of 5 by nhinguyen from Fantastic book I love this book. This book was touched me, it take me to too many emotional.

I recommend this book to people are interesting in adventure, who love friendship and love the suspense. Rated 4 out of 5 by Kailee1 from An amazing book I loved this book!

The bond between the charities are so strong. Two characters Johnny and Ponyboy have such an amazing bond and this book is truly heart warming. Between the two gangs of greasers and socs it shows how even from different parts of towns, and different backgrounds they can be good inside and share the same emotions as you. They go so many different places on trains, on foot, in cars, exc. There are lots of rolller coaster rides of emotion in this book. You get so connnected to the characters.
The author did such a good job on making sure you really get to know the characters. You get to know there feelings exspecally Ponyboy Curtis. I recommend this book to people who like fiction books, emotional rolls coasters, love and friendship, adventures and discovery. It is a novel filled with love, friendship, suspense and real life situations that will make you feel like you are right there with the characters.
The Outsiders takes place in a small town called Tulsa, Oklahoma in The Outsiders is a novel about a group of teenage boys who are struggling to find their identity. One of the main points in this book are the differences between the Greasers who are the poorest, and the Socs who are the richest. One day Ponyboy, the main character, and some of the gang go to the movies and meet some of the upper class Socs and get along really well, but when he gets home he gets really upset about a traumatic family situation and something devastating happens.
Ponyboy and Johnny immediately regret what they have done and are forced to flee to a small town called Windrexville. Will Ponyboy have enough courage to complete his mission? She never explains what the father does or where he is. All we know is that he is abusive. Some of the strengths of this book are how S. E Hinton describes the characters and how she describes the events of the book. She makes you feel like you are right there experiencing the events with the characters. I would recommend this book to people who like suspenseful, fast paced novels that catch your attention and make you want to keep reading.
Some of the key themes in this novel are tribalism, loyalty and friendship. In The Outsiders, S. E Hinton focuses a lot on different social classes and shows how tribalism affects people and by just talking to other people you can break the effects of tribalism. The other topics that this book draws attention to are friendship and loyalty. The characters in the book have strong relationships with each other and have developed very strong bonds. It brings real life situations that the world struggles with and puts it into a relatable story, as well as emphasizes the effects of tribalism, the joys of friendship and the importance of loyalty.
Hinton, is an inspiring novel that will captivate middle and upper-grade students on the timeless struggle between upper and lower class youth. This book grabs your attention with the lives and characters of these two gangs and the problems they try and solve. The novel takes place in Oklahoma, where year-old Ponyboy Curtis and his gang the Greasers are involved in an ongoing battle with the Socs short for Socials. Throughout the novel, Ponyboy comes across hard situations that he has to face and deals with the effects of hardship and poverty.
The Greasers stay together and depend on one another, especially when one of them is in trouble. At a pivotal point, the boys lives turn upside down and they have to face the problem secretly until the rest of the Greasers find out. Ponyboy thinks that the Socs and Greasers are not similar at all, but Cherry Vance, a former Socs girlfriend, disagrees and gives them a little insight into the true lives of Socs.
They are both equally human, even though they act differently. Even though the book is 50 years old and counting, you can find examples of loyalty in the characters which is still important today. The Greasers are loyal to each other even when one of them falls out of place. Johnny and Ponyboy made a big mistake in their lives, and Dally a friend of the greasers accepts them and helps them find a way out.
They protect, defend, and support each other through hard times.
We as kids can understand the problems they face, the effects of poverty and how lending a hand to one another are important. I think the Outsiders is a well written young adult book that will grasp your attention and gets you involved with the characters throughout the whole book. The satisfying ending will leave you with a good moral and an idea what it was like living in a world like Ponyboy Curtis.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Laurie13 from An Inspiring Novel! The Outsiders, by S. Rated 4 out of 5 by Bubaloobe from Revolutionary. I was skeptical at first when I was told that I was supposed to read this book for school. I knew about this book beforehand, but only knowing about the gang related stuff. I was surprised when I found out I was supposed to read this book, because I assumed that it was about reckless boys doing drugs, drinking wildly, sleeping around, all that stuff that I personally did not understand why a school would have kids read this.
But when I opened the first page, I was already attached to the book. I was invested into the characters, the hard-felt meanings and the important story elements that gave this book a powerful story. So, for all the parents who are skeptical about this book like I was, fret not because this book was amazing with a great message. The Outsiders is about this boy named Ponyboy Curtis.
He was a great student. He loved to study, and he usually just read books or watched movies. He was a great kid, but his appearance is what made him a Greaser. This book was just about Ponyboy and his pal Johnny Cade and the gang just going out and chilling, until something terrible happens which completely gives a to what was a story about a nice greaser from the east side.
This book was barrier breaking. It went over many so many key themes and ideas that most books at that time could barely go over one. This story also talked about Social Injustice and Social Classes. A key part of this book was the rivalry between the Greasers and the Socials, the west side rich kids. Not just the Socials, but mostly everyone thought of the Greasers as hoods, which some were but some of the kids, like pony were good people. One strength that this book clearly had was that it gave the readers a sense of perspective.
It really let us feel what Pony felt during the story. This sense of perspective really showed us that the Greasers were not just low-class citizens, but real humans with hearts. What is important about the perspective given to us is that it allows US to sort are stereotypes about people like Ponyboy. Because some kids can be super kind but their appearance or where they are from is what apparently defines them. This is important for kids to know as they are all growing and really developing a sense of who people are and especially certain stereotypes of different people.
One weakness that was not a huge deal but stood out to me was how outdated the book felt when it came to vocabulary and the slang used by the Greasers. It is not the worst thing in the world, but I did find it to be a little confusing. This book is great. It honestly is.

This book really changed what I thought about people and gangs especially. I seriously recommend this book, especially to young readers. I hope this review was good enough to convince you to read it! Rated 5 out of 5 by seanashwatson from The Outsiders The Outsiders is a gripping and informative novel about teenage life and gangs in the sixties. Set in a small American town, it features a variety of characters like Ponyboy, Darry and Sodapop.
This novel looks at the struggles of growing up and the tragedies that sometimes come with it. Some may find the time period less relevant to life now days but the unchanging message is that we are all more alike than different. I would recommend this novel to all ages, especially those going through times of conflict. The Outsiders is a well written, excellent quality novel that almost all people can relate to in some way. I give The Outsiders a rating of 5 stars. I'm now almost 27, and it has stayed with me that long. I finally bought my own copy and re-read it Rated 5 out of 5 by SarahBerg from Classic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Carter from The Outsiders The Outsiders is a coming of age story, dealing with different social groups based on what side of the tracks you grew up on.
You will laugh, you will cry on this roller coaster ride with the main character Pony Boy. This is a story about the Socs and the Greasers, two very different gangs with a lot in common taking place in Oklahoma in The Socs are an upper-class group of kids that come from wealthy homes, whereas the Greasers are a gang from low income and mostly broken homes. The two groups in this story were rivals with some friendships with those rivals.
(ebook) Adventures of Pony Boy Book Two: My First Year
This book explores the ideas that loyalty doesn't always come in a family form and can be destructive and also life-saving. We learn violence doesn't solve anything and that heroes come in all shapes and sizes. Loyalty is very important in the Socs and the greasers and everybody just wants a place to fit in and belong. Loyalty is something that should be practiced, but that blind loyalty is not loyalty at all. In this book, the Greasers are very loyal to each other and always have each other's backs, but blind loyalty we find, can make you do very dangerous things and obscure the truth.
Doing the right thing can cost you everything, but it's still the right thing. I would recommend this book to anyone above the age of It has friendship, fights, danger and life lessons. This book teaches the idea that you should do the right thing even if there are people against it. There is a lot of heart and emotions, as you read through this book you will find yourself, cheering on your favorite character. There are lessons to be learned while reading this book, good and bad. Rated 4 out of 5 by Jamie from Amazing!!!!
Its great for all ages. This book was short and sweet, its a great story you can finish fast or you can savor it. It turned out to be one of the best books I've read. I had to read this book in school and thought I would hate it. It turned out to be one of the best books ive read. Rated 5 out of 5 by Mags from I could read this book over and over I even watched the movie a few times.
It's a story of people from different sides of the tracks, the greasers the poor kids and the socs the rich kids. The story revolves around Ponyboy and Johnny, who are best of friends. Ponyboy narrates the book. He's often confused, hurt, scared and feels like things are wrong. He's also kind, brave and takes chances on people. My heart broke for Johnny. He seems to have bad luck in life no matter which way he turns. His parents treats him badly, he sleeps outside most of the time and he got a very bad beating from the socs. My heart also broke for Dallas.
He broke down because he couldn't handle what happened. The author does a good job writing a clear description of their characteristics, history, and appearance. He created a believable and charming cast of characters who struggle with conflict in and out of their gang. They learn the meaning of friendship and family.

I read this book for the first time when I was around 11 and probably 10 times since.

It's a classic and I think that everyone should read it at least once in their lifetime. Rated 5 out of 5 by Madison from A Classic This book is a classic, what more can be said?
I know the classification of "classic" can scare some people off myself included , but if you're that person and you managed to get through school without reading The Outsiders, give it a shot. These characters are too good to miss out on. Rated 5 out of 5 by Brittney from One of the Best! Still one of my favourite books!
