Customer comments on this Youngstown Ohio Book
A book that I would most definetly read again and again!!
This book is so captivating!!! Personally whenever I got to a really good scene it feels like it's happening right around me!! Its about a boy, Ponyboy Curtis, he is in a gang called the Greasers. His parents died and he relies on his 2 brothers Darry and Sodapop Curtis. This is a truly good book!!!
Comparison to my own life
I got the idea to read S.E. Hinton's "The Outsiders" from by best friend. We saw the movie together and she got me the book for my birthday. Now I've read it twice already!! It's my favorite book!! Reading this book made me compare it to my own life and I concluded that my life and the lives of "The Outsiders" are somewhat the same. Discrimination from other classes . We are the kids that get made fun of 'cause of how we talk and what we wear. But we try not let this bother us and get along with each other. It's us, "ghetto kids" (sometimes we get called that, and like were "thugin'" from the hood), and the other ones, the rich kids that shop and A&E and AF, the preppy kids, they're the ones that call us that stuff. But all in all, "The Outsiders" is my most favoriet book in the entire world, I love it!!
THE OUTSIDES is on the INSIDE of my mind..
I had to read the Outsiders by S.E. Hinton for school and another one of her books. I am currently reading That was then, this is now and its a really good book. The outsides is a really good perspective on life from an outsiders point of view on things.. I like in the "hood" and we are called hoodlums and we have to watch out for people like the "soc" or what we call, preppies.. S.E. Hinton just does a good job telling the point of view form a outisder and i rate this book on a scale from 1 to 5 a 6...
