8602 writes the following about The Outsiders :
The Outsiders is a great book for teenagers and young adults. It is filled with memorable characters that are well thought up and wonderfully put together. The main character Ponyboy is faced with many challenges as a young boy who is part of a gang called the Greasers. His parents died when he was young and he now lives with his two older brothers Soda and Darry. Soda is a high school drop out who is all about having fun and acts as though life is just a . Darry on the other hand is very intelligent but could not go to collage because he is raising his brothers. He is controlling and sometimes comes off that he is tough but its just because he cares a lot and doesn?t want the important people in his life to be hurt. Then there is the gang made up of Johnny, Two bits, Steve, and Dally. Johnny has a very tough family life and is always around the gang to feel better. Johnny was once jumped and is now afraid of the things around him. All the gang members get along with Johnny and will try and protect him. Two-bits comes off as being unintelligent and carefree but he always has to get his two cents in which is why they call him Two-bits. Steve is Sodas best friend but seems like he doesn?t like Ponyboy because he thinks he?s just a tag-along kid. Dally or Dallas is the toughest of all of them. He has been jailed many times and seems cold hearted and mean but when it really comes down to it his greatest care in the world is Johnny. I would advise anyone to read this book because it show?s a real reflection of the things happening in the world that are sometimes overlooked.
