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.
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.
It would rank among my favorites.
The camaraderie among the "greasers."
I enjoyed Fyte's variety of voices, which adds to the listening experience.
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."
I would recommend this book to anyone, young or old.
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.
There was no favorite because he did a great job with all of them.
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!
My seventh graders loved the book from the opening page until the end. Lots to love.
Ponyboy. But he does a great job with all of the characters. Subtle but evident changes to his voice makes it an enjoyable listen.
Many of them - don't want to spoil anything for anyone.
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.
