Really raw writing - really good read!
It's so well conceived that it truly stands alone - the ultimate compliment in literature.
No, but I'd gladly do so as he is a fine vocal talent.
As an urban inner city middle school teacher it's made me do both with thousands of teenagers for two plus decades. Hundreds of kids have routinely nicknamed each other after major characters from the book and they call each other by those pseudonyms twenty years after leaving my classroom - that exemplifies the power that this novel brings to the page - it is truly immersive - a page turner that brings out a true passion for the deep study of literary works.
Pick up a copy and read it, you will more than likely be drawn in so far that you'll find yourself reading it a second or third time either immediately or later in life. Additionally this is a rare occasion where the movie version follows the novel nearly line for line and launched the career of more than half a dozen truly block buster movie stars both male and female - if you watch closely, the author makes a cameo as well. This novel's title is The Outsiders but it is told from such an outstandingly detailed Insider's point of very that every page oozes with action, conflict and character development that it cannot be recommended highly enough for anyone thirteen and up. It contains language and many situations that make it inappropriate for preteens in the opinion of most Middle School Educators - Very Mature Content enclosed.
I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
I would....I read this several times when I was a young girl...and saw the movie so many times...listening to this after 30 years was a real treat!
you cant compare this one....it is a classic...
No, but I would...
They did...and it is and always will be a true classic!
This touched my heart just as much now as it did when I was 12yrs old..I had such a crush on Ponyboy Curtis, and posters of the character all over my room..I saw the movie at the drive in like 10 times and rented it on VHS every chance I got...Listening as an adult, I see a book about a boy with a golden heart...a story of survival, a beautifully tragic tale of friendship...and I loved it!!!!
when Johnny killed Bob it was like he killed himself along with bob it felt like
One of my favorite books where I can listen in a day.
You will have to read it for yourself!
The story was interesting and well written. Truly enjoyed it.
The narrator was great.
A classic that can be enjoyed by all. A bit of violence. However no sexual situations nor profanity.
loved it didn't struggle to finish at all! the narrators voice fits the books charector perfect!!
