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.

    "The Outsiders"

    I remember reading this book in school, many years ago - so when my son brought it home to read as english 8 homework, I decidied to download it one evening so that we could discuss it together after he finished reading it. It's a great story for many reasons - the class differences and similarities are very well detailed. The main character is very captivating in the book and is easy to lissen to as an audible book. It's hard to stop listening - luckily it's not a long book.

    "Great for a wide variety of ages"

    My fourteen year old son kept urging me to get this book after reading it in school. I initially got it simply to support and encourage his reading habit. The book grabbed me from the beginning and never bogged down. I recommend it to ALL teenagers and see no reason why any adult wouldn't like it as well. Great story, well narrated.

    "Chapters DO NOT match."

    Great audio book. However, I had the same problem as the previous reviewer. The chapters DO NOT MATCH. Chapter 4 begins half way through chapter three etc...Not good if you use in classroom where you have to select a specific chapter.

    "Jim Fyfe's Amazing Voices"

    I'm an 8th grade Language Arts teacher and I usually read the narration for books or stories to my classes. I feel I can do a better job than the taped narrations I have access to. In this case, I heard a sample of Mr. Fyfe's narration for 'The Outsiders' and I was sold. He has an amazing capacity to capture numerous different voices and I'm hoping to find another book that he has narrated and that I can use for my 8th graders.-Andrew Kornfeld

    "Great "classic" story"

    What a great story. Stories should be told and passed down through generations. This is one of those that every human in any country in any language can relate to. Hinton tells this story very well. It's about growing up and dealing with some of the problems we all had.
    This book should be on the "must read" list for every young person in our country.

    "A classic for a reason..."
    What did you love best about The Outsiders?

    The characters and the telling.


    Any additional comments?

    A classic that deserves the status. I bought this to listen to with my 11 and 13 yo sons and found we had plenty to talk about after listening. A good story from beginning to end.

    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.
