The Outsider is an amazing book. It had a lot of exciting parts that I could read again! If someone asked me if S.E. Hinton, is a good author, I would say she is a magnificent author. I would suggest this book to a friend.
One of the main things I enjoy about this book is all the action. All the charters have their own way of expressing the way they live. During the rumbles I imaged myself inside the book and was helping them beat the socs.
Imagine yourself working for a living that?s what Darry & Sodapop Curtis [Darry, Sodapop, and Ponyboy?s parents was in a wreck and died instanly] did to support themselves and their little brother Ponyboy Curtis. And their friends Dally, Johnny, Two-bit, and Steve at times they would stay over. But most of the time Ponyboy was at school or in the vacant lot that they usually had their rumbles in.
To all the readers that are reading my article I suggest you to read this book. [Read this book and you will find out how hard it was being a greaser.]
