Publisher's Summary

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.

    "It's certainly a classic"

    I would say something here about how good the book is but chances are you were forced to read it for school and thus already know.

    "Classic Americana"

    This book is a classic. That should be enough, but couple that with a talented reading performance and it becomes a masterpiece. It usually takes me quite a while to get through audiobooks. I listened to this almost straight through. Loved it.

    "One of the best of the best "

    After reading hundreds of thousands of books and novels I can say this one of the best books I've ever come across . very impresive, deep, thrilling and touching. Narrator is also adding another dimension of joy by his talented way and capturing voice. what a great experience I had!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    "Stay Gold. "

    My son wanted me to put this book on my book club list because he had read it in the 7th grade and told me it was a good book. Sometimes my book club will read children/teen books so we gave it a chance. It is a good coming of age book for intercity gangs back in the 60’s. I can see where it would still pertain to today’s kids in a way. Unfortunately, the gangs today are more jade than even the ones in this book. Narrator was okay, while the story had a good pace, there was just something slight that was a bit off putting for me. Not bad per say, but if the story had not been good I might have had a bigger problem with him.

    "Great story, mediocre performance."

    I had to listen to the story at a faster speed because the narrator's speaking was so slow in an exaggerated attempt to mimic a Southern accent. I don't live far from Tulsa and I can tell you that we don't all sound like we've been kicked in the head by a horse. The story of the classic, of course.

    "Amazing"

    It was a great book and by the end it really dose touch your heart. It reminds me of the 1970's and was the best book I think that's ever Been told to me.
