nothing except it is something i noticed sorry for blabbing on Stay gold Ponyboy Stay goldThe Outsiders is a except it is something i noticed sorry for blabbing on Stay gold Ponyboy Stay goldThe Outsiders is a about sensitive teenage boys who alternately get into gang fights ug one another and burst into tears They also spend time than you might expect ruminating on Zees Story how the tightness of a t shirt might enhance the rippling musculature of a steely eyed fellow gang member this is where Stephanie Meyer got the idea forow to characterize Edward Even though they re always complimenting each other s air and doing gymnastics it s not gay at all because it takes place in 1965 shortly after James Dean ad made crying and omoerotic tension coolThis is the kind of book that teachers like to assign to 7th graders or dumb igh schoolers because it offers up a lot of THEMES about ow EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT BUT STILL THE SAME and teachers feel pretty safe giving a uiz on that because even the stupidest kid can figure it out as every few paragraphs the narrator will just go ahead and state it outright like this Even though we re Greasers and they re Socs I guess in the end we all look at the same sunset Sample essay uestion What did Ponyboy mean when e said that everyone looked at the same sunset And all you All Lost Things have to do to get it right is repeat the firstalf of the sentenceAs a narrator Ponyboy kept reminding me of Holden Caulfied if Holden was poor and actually managed to do anything interesting with is evenings But maybe that just as to do with the time period and the fact that they both say stuff like I was just about bawling my eyes out to tell you the truth every few pages except Ponyboy is doing it because One Man's Justice his best friend knifed someone and then died of a broken back and being on fire and Holden is just sad becauseis roommate smells bad oh and I guess A Little Hotel On The Side his brother got cancer and died pffffft I do think they would get along if they ever met and maybe make out a little bitI love the last few sentences of every chapter where SE Hinton trots outer corniest stuff Chapter 7 Socs were just guys after all Things were rough all over but it was better that way That way you could tell the other guy was Heute Ziehst Du Aus: Roman human too Chapter 8 Thanks Ponyboy She smiled througher tears You dig okay She ad green eyes I went on walking ome slowly Oh and it doesn t come at the end of a chapter but Not even the rattling of the train could keep me awake and I went to sleep in a Kapriolen Des Schicksals[Roman] hoodlum s jacket with a gun lying next to myand There s also the best deathbed speech in all of teen literature probably which goes like this INTERPRETS THEMATICALLY RELEVANT POEM DIESSo somehow I never read this in middle school and when I read it now I just end up giggling at The Magnanimous Heart half of the overwrought emotion whichappened with Catcher in the Rye too but there I m going to assume Salinger was writing on multiple levels because e was a competent adult whereas The Outsiders was written by someone Holden s age But it s still a pretty awesome bookEDITED to add that this Penguin edition makes the book seem really classy which is nice but Jodi Picoult s introduction is kind of a joke She basically asked er 14 year old son to write a book report and uoted excerpts Facebook 30 Day Book Challenge Day *6 Favorite Young Adult * Favorite young adult This reread was just as good as the first time aroundI forgot Over Mintmarks and Hot Repunched Mintmarks how much action takes place over such a short time spanWatch my video reviewere This was a great book but I was incredibly disappointed after I found out it wasn t about aliens.

Read for the third time for my class in grad school I ve read it twice before once on my own in 2014 once for my undergrad YA lit class in 2017 Despite knowing what I was getting going in the novel still olds up and I can t wait to examine it deeply in class I Alamo Story: From Early History to Current Conflicts have watched this movie over and over when I was younger and I stillave it today and love it just as much I will admit I was in love with Dallas and ad a crush on Sodapop but Dallas was my man I just can t believe it took me this many years to read the book And the book was so close to the movie it is almost unreal Maybe it was due to the fact that SE Hinton was on set elping with the movie I really don t know I just love that I can read a book and watch a movie and there not be that many things different Ok there will be This is a remarkable story of people from different sides of the tracks The greasers the poor Finally read this classic Glad to be in the knowI can see why this Isabel de Solis, Soraya: Un Cuento de Amor En La Alhambra has stood the test of time The story is easy to get into and keeps your attention throughout It seems like any person young or old rich or poor popular or outcast could empathize or sympathize the themes Finally the key climax points are done very well andit you right in the feelsAnother thought I ad while reading is this is another one of the young adult
fore fathers We now take for granted that every week there will be 10 new YA titles to piue our interest fathers We now take for granted that every week there will be 10 new YA titles to piue our interest when this came out the YA gems were few and far between Reading this should be a right of passage for YA fans everywhere I m a little orrified at myself for not The First Secret of Edwin Hoff having this book up before now Wead a discussion about it in class today and I ad to write this as soon it was over I wish there were stars to give The Outsiders but five will ave to do I love this book and ave loved it faithfully since I read it in sixth grade I must ave read it a dozen times and possibly I can uote long sections of the book I was obsessed and to some degree still am It s not a good book by any literary standard really Hinton uses one of those usually awful formulaic introductions that devotes a paragraph to each main character explicitly describing their characteristics istory and appearance When I think of it objectively it s almost as bad as that awful awful introductory second chapter of the Babysitters Club books that repeats in every installment I think the point is though that I just don t care In fact I adore the writing even though it is obvious
#maybe because i #because I read it when I was eleven and that sort of writing just seemed clear and to the point At any rate I don t think it suffers too badly from the style and if anything it benefits from the authenticity of a teenage author I can t even begin to say what it was about this book that caught my interest and imagination so completely I liked the otherness of it I ad never experienced anything like these boys dealt with Not the pervasive fear and violence not the absentee non existent or abusive parents and definitely not the fascinating siege mentality camaraderie that existed in their group The best part of the book without any doubt is the characters she Under Lock and Key has created I love them all with the exception of Steve They are wonderful and so sympathetic with their odd names and ill fated lives Iope for the ending to change every time I read it Ponyboy s voice which narrates the story as a beautiful vulnerability and onesty that makes the story believable He s often confused Lignin Biodegradation: Microbiology, Chemistry, and Potential Applications: Volume II hurt scared sorry and just feels like things are wrong bute s also brave and kind and takes chances on people I think that Hinton s allowing Something Wicked her main character to be a real person who is often than not unsure of everythinge doe.

#worth it just #it just the few brief cameos a slightly older Ponyboy makes throughout the story I loved The Outsiders when I read it as a teen and again when I read it just a few months ago S E Hinton created a believable and engaging cast of characters who struggle with conflict in and out of their gang and learn the meaning of friendship and family A very moving and enjoyable story Sixteen years on the streets and you can learn a lot But all the wrong things not the things you want to learn Sixteen years on the streets and you see a lot But all the wrong sights not the sights you want to see So this was my first time reading The Outsiders and I really don t get why our teach the outsiders is a book about a group of youthful greasers living in oklahoma and about their struggles to exist in a society that seems designed to dismiss them oklahoma is also the name of a popular musicaldraw your own conclusions or continue readingsee i don t know from oklahoma in the sixties maybe that is a place where street toughs call their little brothers oney and baby and enjoy sunsets and stars and reading margaret mitchell aloud to one another and who recite robert frost in uiet moments maybe they do gymnastics before what they call skin fighting with the local rival boys maybe they cry and snuggle together in bed at night and old each other through ard timesnot that there is anything wrong with thatit just seems to be ueer behavior for a gang of juvenile delinuentswhat no i didn t mean ueer like that no really i just meant odd but now that you mention it uh yeah it does seem a little ueer who knew that boys in leather could ave a ueer connotation and putting on tight t shirts that show off every muscle before they go to meet the other boys and making sure to fix their air no that s just what it says in the bookthese are their modern day euivalentsmaybe this is just what appens when a teen girl writes this kind of material tomboy or not i A'dan Z'ye Yaşar Kemal had seen the movie before so i knew it was about pretty boys fighting but there is a lot at workere subtextually i Nacht have also seen rumble fish which is an awful movie based on anotherinton book that is even musical but is an excuse to look at thisand ow is tom waits in both moviesbut all of that is just me gigglingwhat is interesting from a serious literary perspective is just an observation from reading this the pigman and revisiting the chocolate war and catcher in the rye for this portion of my young adult readers advisory class which will meet this tuesday where we will discuss the classics of teen fiction and i know catcher wasn t specifically produced for a teen audience but it is on the damn syllabus and if it makes you appier i will call this the teen in literature instead in the fifties and sixties there was seemingly free floating apprehension and fear the a bomb the draft various factors contributed to this fear of an imminent death beyond anyone s control all this anxiety and fear of the establishment created a pronounced sense of us and them that i think i blabbed on a little in the pigman review but children were just treated like smaller adults really and the literature reflects this all of these books seem to emphasize a value placed on the preservation of childhood innocence staying gold protecting a younger sister from the taint of phoniness encouraging kids to act like kids and roller skate through the ouse and disregard the parental restrictions in this one safe place now the boundaries are blurrier girls are getting their periods at 8 and grown men in suits are playing.
