The Outsiders
The Outsiders | SE Hinton
A heroic story of friendship and belonging No one ever said life was easy. But Ponyboy is pretty sure that he's got things figured out. He knows that he can count on his brothers, Darry and Sodapop. And he knows that he can count on his friendstrue friends who would do anything for him, like Johnny and Two-Bit. And when it comes to the Socsa vicious gang of rich kids who enjoy beating up on "greasers" like him and his friendshe knows that he can count on them for trouble. But one night someone takes things too far, and Ponyboy's world is turned upside down... Written over forty-five years ago, The Outsiders is a dramatic and enduring work of fiction. S. E. Hinton's classic story of a boy who finds himself on the outskirts of regular society remains as powerful today as it was the day it was first published. "The Outsiders transformed young-adult fiction from a genre mostly about prom queens, football players and high school crushes to one that portrayed a darker, truer world." The New York Times "Taut with tension, filled with drama." The Chicago Tribune "[A] classic coming-of-age book." Philadelphia Daily News "What it's like to live lonely and unwanted and cornered by circumstance...There is rawness and violence here, but honest hope, too." National Observer A New York Herald Tribune Best Teenage Book A Chicago Tribune Book World Spring Book Festival Honor Book An ALA Best Book for Young Adults Winner of the Massachusetts Children's Book Award

This might end up as one of my new favorite books. The characters are entertaining and feel incredibly real. Their relationships with each other make you want to root for them, and the end is absolutely heartbreaking.

LeahBergen An old favourite of mine! 1mo

I had field observations this semester and I decided to read this with the 7th graders! Watching their reactions and hearing their discussions was such a treat! I love how this book is still touching readers generations later!

Our purchases from the Lansing specialty book show! A found a Pratchett 1e he didn't already have and another fantasy novel. I grabbed one of the Gwen Frostic books I'm missing, the signed Hank Green, and the earliest copy of The Outsiders I've ever seen in person. Because I'm a functional human being the moment I picked it up off the shelf I started bawling. 😅🥰

Somehow, I missed this book the first 45 years of my life. I bet thousands of middle schoolers have learned to love reading because of this book. It‘s still gold all these years later.

I never read this one before, nor had I seen the movie, and I liked it a lot! Pretty cool that the author added a short intro saying SHE was only 16 when she finished this book, and that she wrote it because there was no proper representation of teenagers around that time. Wild!

CogsOfEncouragement I was so surprised to find out that S. E. stands for Susan Eloise. 4mo
Nalbuque @CogsOfEncouragement OMG! I‘ve made this assumption mistake before and it feels pretty crappy!!! Im happy to hear SE is a woman haha I fixed the caption, thanks for the heads up!!! 4mo
CogsOfEncouragement I know, but that was why she used her initials instead of her full name. We just did what was expected of us. lol Cool to give credit where credit is due though. 4mo

Finally read this book and oh man, this was a flat out masterpiece! 🤤 Very rarely do I come across a book that I can say is truly perfect, but this is one. Well written, great characters, important messages, and deep emotionality. Truly one of the best books I‘ve read this year. If you‘ve never read this book, definitely check it out. And give the movie a view if you haven‘t. It‘s really good too! 🙂

CogsOfEncouragement I read this during a readathon because it is the favorite of a friend. I understand why it is her favorite. 5mo

Suggestion from my very surprised boyfriend when he found out I hadn't read The Outsiders. Would I still be tuff if I may or may not have cried a few times?

"Ponyboy can count on his brothers. And on his friends. But not on much else besides trouble with the SOCs, a vicious gang of rich kid whose idea of a good time is beating up "greasers" like Ponyboy. At least he knows what to expect - until the night someone takes things too far."

Hadn't read this one since high school (which was 35 years ago) & we're going to a community theatre production of it tonight, so I wanted to revisit it. I didn't appreciate this book as a teenager, which makes sense. Easy to see why this is a classic.

The complete novel movie -remade in 2017 with parts filmed in original but cut, is so much better than the original. SO much more like the book and ends MUCH better....

This ends my experience reading this book with an 8th grader until grandbaby hippie in 7 years. IF it is still in the curriculum.

peanutnine Rob Lowe gives an interesting account of his experience filming the movie and his disappointment with the edits in his book 12mo

I loved this! Clearly written by a young person, and the plot points/character depth could maybe be criticised if you were looking at it from a lit criticism perspective, but as a view of the world from a disadvantaged teenager and a great, fast story it‘s fantastic. I‘m going to get my teenagers to read it next.

'You read a lot, don't you Ponyboy?' Cherry asked.
I was startled. 'Yeah. Why?'
She kind of shrugged. 'I could just tell. I'll bet you watch sunsets too.' She was quiet for a minute after I nodded. 'I used to watch them too, before I got so busy...'

Despite bearing the hallmarks of its age, there's something quite compelling about this novel. No doubt it contains some casually racist language towards indigenous people and equally casual sexist views towards women, both of which merit greater discussion, however, there is much to be applauded in terms of depth and duality of characters and plain good storytelling.

Starting my #bookspin book. It's a reread but I haven't read it since I had a crush on this guy. 😂 Hope it holds up.

Prairiegirl_reading I reread this a couple years ago and then just happened to follow it up with the hate you give. It was an interesting pairing. Bookish serendipity. Anyway I love this book to this day. It‘s such a touchstone to my childhood. And Matt Dillon was my crush! Lol, everyone had a crush on one of them (at least one!)!! 1y

I can‘t believe I never read this until now! Absolutely stunning! Seriously, contemporary YA books just do not compare when it comes to the rawness and realness of “The Outsiders”. The characters are so jaded, yet innocent kids all the same. This is a true masterpiece,

My 3rd finished #NewYearWhoDis book is one I‘m 30 years late in reading! The Outsiders never made it onto my school curriculum, and I‘ve never seen the movie.

I like how conversational Ponyboy is in the telling of his story. It makes sense, since Hinton was a teenager when she wrote it. I wonder how differently I would have felt at that age about Darryl; as a middle-aged person I‘m just impressed that he took care of his kid brothers at 20!

A short read with Polly for the summer holidays. I vaguely recall the movie and look forward to watching (primarily Rob Lowe) again.
Interestingly, I found that I now respect and identify with Darry, the eldest of the brothers who rather than go to college elects to work two jobs to keep his younger brothers in their family home, whereas he seemed a bit of a bore when I was young.
Ponyboy and Sodapop remain ridiculous names.
