The Outsiders | [S.E. Hinton]

The Outsiders

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 kids 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.

    "Sentimental enjoyment"

    I listened to this today as I was running errands because my daughter is reading it. The narration was a little heavy handed on the accents and goofiness of the "gang's" voices, but the story is still lovely and brilliant.

    "Great story to share"

    Loved it when I read it as a teenager and now my teenager read it and loved it too! Same lessons apply in the world today.

    "Society's opinions, especially our own peers"

    It's amazing how people see each another base on monetary value and possessions. An awesome read for teenagers.

    A Must have!

    "A great story"

    I love this book. I can't believe S.E. Hinton was only 16 years old when she wrote this book. It is so good.

    Story
    "S. E. Hinton's classic for all ages"
    Where does The Outsiders rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It would rank among my favorites.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The camaraderie among the "greasers."


    What about Jim Fyfe’s performance did you like?

    I enjoyed Fyte's variety of voices, which adds to the listening experience.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I'll go with the tagline they did use when they did make this into a movie: "They grew up on the outside of society. They weren't looking for a fight. They were looking to belong."


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this book to anyone, young or old.

    "The Outsiders is terrific!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Outsiders to be better than the print version?

    I would not consider it better. The audio enhances the experience. The narrator does an awesome job! My students did not like it when we had to pause for the day.


    Which character – as performed by Jim Fyfe – was your favorite?

    There was no favorite because he did a great job with all of them.

    Story
    "Still Gripping 45 Years Later"
    Where does The Outsiders rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Among the best. Not only the story but the performance. Kept three classes of seventh grade students glued to the pages listening and following along. Thank you!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Outsiders?

    My seventh graders loved the book from the opening page until the end. Lots to love.


    Which character – as performed by Jim Fyfe – was your favorite?

    Ponyboy. But he does a great job with all of the characters. Subtle but evident changes to his voice makes it an enjoyable listen.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Many of them - don't want to spoil anything for anyone.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm thankful Audible allowed me to play this for my seventh grade class to listen to as we followed along in our books. The kids couldn't wait to get in to my class to get to the next chapter. I think Jim Fyfe did an exceptional job which completely transfixed my students and really enhanced the book in so many ways.
