What the community says about The Outsiders
- "The Outsiders is a classic, full stop. The fact that S.E. Hinton was a teenager herself when she started writing this story of two rival gangs is almost unbelievable and certainly makes my teenage accomplishments pale in comparison. If you haven't read this book, read it now. If you have, you owe it to yourself to read it again."
- "The Outsiders is a book about Ponyboy Curtis saw life as one of the greasers, one of the people who does not belong in a regular society. This book is in the young adult genre and has won a number of awards. This book is rated 4.7 stars out of 5. It is well written and interesting to read."
- "I was recommended this from the young adult section, so I decided to pick this up for my son. One I got it I decided to read it before I gave it to him. This book is complete garbage, it offers nothing a boy can take from it that isn't absolutely degenerate. I will be asking for a refund as I don't think this is suitable for teenagers."
- "Interesting book but I could not get into it. Maybe because it's set in the 1950s. This was before I was born so it's kind of hard to connect with it. Although it was hard to connect with the characters, it did make me think about people that I know. I believe that everyone at some point in life feels like an outsider."
- "The Outsiders is a story that is a classic for young adults and is timeless. The story is one that's still true, today. Gang fighting and rumbles are still happening everywhere especially high schoolers. Nice story showing both sides on a personal level that is relatable. This book has won awards and is a must read. "
- "The Outsiders is one of the most traditional books that should be read by every middle school student. The book is about true friendship and how friends stick together when times are rough. There's a lot of great lessons for impressionable youth to learn from the story."
- "If you've ever watched the Outsiders movie and enjoyed it then I would say reading the original Outsiders book is an absolute must. The movie adaptation is good in its own right, however, the novel has more detail and character development to make it a must read."
- "The main character Ponyboy finds himself in a society where he doesn't fit in. His two brothers and two friends spend this book in conflict with a gang of rich white kids called the Socs. Labeled a "greaser" he is subject to verbal and physical abuse from the Socs. One night, however, things, take a turn for the worse when someone takes it too far."
